School formal shopping? We've got you covered


School formal shopping? We've got you covered

Ahhh, what’s that? The scent of new blooms in the air? This means it must be nearly school formal time. Never fear, we are here to inspire you and help map out your complete guide to where to get The Dress (or suit!) and The Accessories!

First stop: outfit. We recommend heading to David Jones, Bardot or TK Maxx for on-trend fabrics that are having a resurgence this season, such as metallics and bright pops of retro colour.

For suiting options, try Peter Jackson, Tarocash, David Jones or Connor. For accessorising, we recommend Mathers or Williams for shoes, and Lovisa, Pandora, Michael Hill and Colette by colette hayman for jewellery. For ties, tie pins, pocket squares or fancy socks, try H&M, Peter Jackson, Connor or YD.

On the beauty front, when is the last time you had an in-store makeover redeemable on product? Did you know that David Jones and Napoleon Perdis all offer this service, meaning you can sit, back, relax and bring serious glamour to your formal, and also stock up on new luxuries or old favourites while you’re at it.

And with that, you’re ready to rock the best formal look you can imagine. All that’s left to do is head into Westfield Tuggerah and get this party started.
