  • What to Wear to After Prom Parties

    We've been dishing out tip after tip on how to make sure you have the perfect prom. From dress trends, to celebrity style, to hairstyles, to nail looks...but the night doesn't end with prom, of course! There's after prom, too, and it's just as important to make sure you find the perfect outfit to wear for your post prom events.

    When prom ends and the after parties begin, it's time to throw on an outfit that's more fun, flirty, and comfortable, but still has you sparkling all night long! Wearing cute cocktail dresses have been a popular trend the past couple of years, which we absolutely love...why let the glam stop at prom?? Just make sure that the dress doesn't compete with your prom dress - your prom dress should be your big outfit of the night. Below are our favorite frocks that will have you looking glamorous from prom to after-prom.

    Jovani 74005

    Jovani style 74005 is so fun and funky, and so perfect for spring and summer with its cutout features and open back. It definitely has that extra party-girl edge!

    Hannah S 27796

     Hannah S style 27796 is an elastic bandage dress that is sure to be a comfortable choice, while still being figure flattering. We love the bright blue color (it also comes in a bright pink) - it's a perfect way to channel the spirit of spring in a chic way!

    La Femme 18110

    Just looking for something simple, but stylish to wear? Rocking a little black dress is always a staple choice. We love La Femme style 18110 because it's made of a stretch net mesh fabric that is sure to be a comfortable choice. The dress also comes in blue, red, and nude, so if you'd like to wear a bold color on a more simple dress, that's always a fun choice, too!

    Whatever you decide to wear to After Prom, just make sure that you have lots of fun!

  • What to Wear to a Spring Formal

    Spring is here, and that means it's time for lots and lots of college formal events. Whether attending your school's formal or a sorrority or fraternity formal, it's definitely a time to be dressed to the nines! Before you even begin to start shopping, double-check the dress code and determine if the event is a formal or semi-formal. One great way to make sure you're buying the right outfit is to talk to upperclassmen who have attended the events before and ask what they've worn. If it's a semi-formal event, a cocktail dress is a great option. If the invitation says formal or black tie, it may be more appropriate to wear a full-length gown. Either way, it's always fun to dress up!

    Below are four dresses that we love for college formal events: two cocktail dresses for a semi-formal, and two full-length gowns for a formal event.

    Spring Semi-Formal Event

    Shail K. is a great designer to look at for cute, sexy cocktail dresses. The designer has two dresses that we absolutely love for spring formal events: style SK3195 and style SK3823.

    Shail K sk3195

    Shail K. style SK3195 has a hand beaded ombre pattern that's just gorgeous. The black, blue, purple color makes it perfect to wear any time of the year, so you can definitely get multiple uses out of this dress.

    Shail K sk3823

    With pastels being so in this season, Shail K SK3823 couldn't be any more perfect for Spring with the two colors it comes in: Peach (shown above) and Nude. The flowing layers and satin accentuated waist give the look of beauty and power, and the translucent fabric around the neck and sides let enough sexy peek through while keeping the untouchable aura of a goddess!

    Spring Formal Event

    For sexy formal gowns that aren't as glitz and glam as prom dresses can be, there are two designers that we love: Sherri Hill and La Femme. Both have evening gowns that are so perfect for a variety of formal or black tie affairs.

    Sherri Hill 8510

    Sherri Hill style 8510 is our favorite evening gown for Springtime. It's a simple yet elegant strapless sweetheart dress that has intricate beaded detail. We especially love the subtle high-low look on the dress. You'll also have a variety of colors to choose from that are all so perfect for springtime: Strawberry (shown above), Ivory, Pink, Purple, Turquoise, and Yellow!

    La Femme 18713

    La Femme style 18713 is a beautiful figure flattering dress with intricate beading on the bodice and soft gathers at the waist. The beading gives it such an elegant look, while not being over the top. The dress comes in a variety of different colors, such as Peacock (pictured above), Purple, Nude, Light Lime, and Peach. If your event is a black tie affair, this dress in Black is a perfect option.

  • Prom Trend of the Week: Printed Dresses

    This week's prom trend is one of our favorites because we love seeing different patterns and innovative looks every year. Printed dresses are so creative and are always fresh since there's so many different ways to wear the trend! A print dress will always be a showstopper; whether it's animal print or polka dots, you'll be sure to have the most memorable dress of the night!

    Printed dresses can either work with your figure or go against it, depending on the pattern and your body shape and height. So, just make sure to pick a pattern that suits your body type. If you find the right printed dress, it can be super figure flattering. Below are some of our favorite new patterned dresses for Prom 2013 - they are all great looks that certainly take the boredom out of a solid color dress!

    La Femme18969

    Sherri Hill 2813

    Tony Bowls 2351337

    La Femme 18017

    1. La Femme 18969 Rose Gold Gown - A unique sequined gown with a sweetheart neckline and contrasting pattern on the skirt. The chevron pattern is très chic. One of our favorites! If you're on the taller side, this is a great dress option - the chevron pattern will really work to give you a slimming figure.

    2. Sherri Hill 2813 Nude Evening Gown - Be the center of attention in this fitted floor length strapless jeweled gown. The unique beaded pattern on this dress takes the patterned dress trend to a new level by almost giving it a 3D look! The way the patterns are laid out on this dress should work to accent your curves.

    3. Tony Bowls Tony B 2351337 - A strapless printed chiffon A-line prom dress with a sweetheart neckline and gathered empire waist accented with chunky hand-beading. This is simply a fun dress, and a great way to wear print in a more simple way. The subtle ombre make this dress so on-trend, while the print gives off an artsy look.

    4. La Femme 18017 - Go wild in this blue one shoulder animal print ombre gown with a sexy front slit. The pleated bodice has cutouts leading to the back cutout and trimmed with sequins and beading. If you love animal print, this is such a fun way to rock the look. The ombre keeps the animal print from being too overpowering, since it fades into white at the bottom.

  • Dress of the Week: Shail K. Style KK3133L

    For this week, our Dress of the Week is Shail K. style KK3133L in honor of The Bachelor now being back on the air for Season 17! The Season Premiere aired on January 7th, and the second episode aired earlier this week on Monday, January 14th. This season, The Bachelor that all the ladies are vying for is Sean Lowe - a 29 year old entrepreneur from Dallas, TX.

    We picked this gorgeous Shail K. gown as our Dress of the Week because Jackie Parr, one of the ladies on the show, wore the dress on the Season Premiere! Jackie, a 25 year old cosmetics consultant from Ormond Beach, FL, couldn't have looked more stunning as she met Sean for the first time. She must have left a lasting impression because in both the episodes so far, Sean gave her a rose! We can't wait to see what happens in the coming episodes!

    Shail K. style KK3133L is a hand beaded gown that fits like a glove and accentuates your curves. It has a sexy high front slit and comes in 3 colors: Bronze, Ivory/Silver, and Platinum. Jackie wore the Bronze color on The Bachelor.

  • New Year's Eve Party Themes

    With New Year's Eve only 4 days away, it's definitely time to get your party plans together! Whether you're holding your own party, or attending someone else's, it can be fun to have a theme. Party City recently put together a list of NYE party themes that we thought were cute ideas to spice up the normal New Year's party. Whether you're looking for a theme for your own party, or if you know that one of your friends will be having one at theirs, we paired some sexy cocktail dresses with our favorite Party City NYE party ideas.

    Want to stick with the classic New Year's Eve look? You definitely can't go wrong by keeping with tradition and going with a black, silver, and gold party theme. As far as dressing for the occasion, a classic little black dress is always perfect, but it can be fun to dress it up a bit with silver or gold accenting either on the dress or with your accessories. We love Primavera style 9625 for a traditional NYE look - it's a cute strapless dress with silver and black sequins.

    Looking for something a little more funky for New Year's Eve? There's definitely no better night to let your wild side out! Don't be afraid to shake things up with fun spots and stripes in your party's theme and on your outfit. Animal print dresses are always a sexy staple for any girl's closet, so it's a dress you won't have trouble finding multiple uses for. We love Xcite style 30375 and Jovani style 9866 cocktail dresses to get the animal print look for NYE.

    Just want to add some bright colors to your New Year's Eve? Go with a "Midnight Mystery" theme and fill your night with bold blues, purples, oranges and reds. There's plenty of multicolor dresses you can pick from, but we love Hannah S. style 27781 for a fun and flirty look.

  • RaeLynn Getting in the Holiday Spirit with Jovani

    Happy Holidays to all of our Roo friends & family! With the Holidays in full swing, we wanted to have a special post for a celebrity that's been keeping us in the Holiday spirit - RaeLynn! She's been participating in Holiday events and seen wearing some very pretty Holiday-inspired Jovani dresses this month, and we can't get over how  beautiful she looks in them!

    RaeLynn first became famous on the second season of The Voice, where she finished third on Blake Shelton's team. If you're a fan, I'm sure you didn't miss her returning to the stage two weeks ago on December 11th - she came back to perform her first single 'Boyfriend.' She looked absolutely beautiful wearing a royal blue strapless sequin cocktail dress from Jovani (style 1954), and her performance was amazing!

    She was also recently seen wearing a short baby doll Jovani dress (style 2933) at jcpenney's "Holiday Giving Tour" in LA. The tour began on #GivingTuesday on Nov. 27th and lasted for 12 days, visiting a new city each day throughout the US. The goal was to bring a touch of Christmas cheer to cities across the county, "through simple, humble acts of generosity that pay homage to classic American holiday traditions...from Christmas tree lighting and ice skating to Santas and tobogganing." Blake Shelton and RaeLynn joined the retail store in LA for the final day of the tour to give an exclusive, free holiday performance outside their store in Westfield Culver City. It doesn't get much more in the Holiday spirit than that!

  • New Year's Eve Party Outfits!

    This year is coming to an end very quickly! So many parties...so little time! You HAVE to dive into the new year looking fab, of course. We picked out our fav cocktail dresses that are so perfect for a New Year's eve party. Whether you're hitting up a nightclub or celebrating at home...you'll be sure to enter 2014 looking super glamorous!

    A NYE dress is not a NYE dress without sequins or some kind of embellishment! But, sticking to the plain sequin dresses isn't always the best way to stand out, since a lot of people will be rocking the sequins on this night! It can be fun to find a dress that has the sparkly sequins, but with a little bit of a twist to it.

    We especially love Jovani for this - they are always so fashion forward with their designs that we can barely keep up! Our favorite two Jovani dresses for New Year's are below - they scream NYE in a very unique way and are especially great if you're celebrating at one of the hottest nightclubs. We love the long sleeves on these dresses, too - perfect for winter festivities! Since they are classic cocktail dresses, they both can be worn time and time again for other events, too!

     

     

     

     

    This Jovani 4973 cocktail dress features a nude underlay with a sheer beaded overlay. The sequins gives it a festive look! It's perfect for someone who wants to stand out and show off their legs. You'll definitely turn heads in this one!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The studded detail on this Jovani 9419 dress gives it an edgy rock n' roll look. If you want to channel your inner Rihanna, this one is definitely the one for you!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    If long sleeves aren't your thing, no worries - there's nothing wrong with showing off some arms on NYE! The other cocktail dresses we picked out below, like the Jovani dresses, have a unique look to them but still have that new year's eve sparkle! They are both also only $178, so if holiday shopping burned a hole in your pocket, and the dresses above hurt your wallet, these are great options for a more affordable dress!

     

     

     

     

     

    Be the star of the night in this strapless Scala 47488 cocktail dress. This ivory dress features silver and gold sequin embellishment, a sweetheart neckline, and comes in three other colors. It hugs you in all the right places!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Watch the ball drop in this little number! This fun one shoulder Dave & Johnny 7947 cocktail dress features a sexy open back and all over multicolor sequins. Perfect for this celebration and many others!
