LBS Fashion: Spring Formal Dresses & Red Carpet Trends

Spring is upon us! I always get excited when Daylight Savings time sets in because it means we're one step closer to warm weather and mini skirts. Aside from the fact that we lose an hour of sleep, it's a signal that summer is just around the corner (*does the Harlem shake*)

Hand in hand with the spring comes the spring formal occasions we now have to prep for, and the pretty dresses that go along with them. Whether you're gearing up for senior prom, a springtime wedding or a charity gala, here are four great spring trends, inspired by this past Award Season's red carpet looks for every budget and body type:

1. The Lace Show Stopper

I spotted tons of lace on red carpets this season, from Sandra Bullock at the Oscars to J.Lo and Nicole Richie at the Golden Globes. Here are some super chic lace dress options:

2. The Thigh-High Split

As risky and daring as it is, this dress option is perfect for those who are willing to show a little leg without restraint. We saw it everywhere from J.Lo at the Grammy's to Eva Longoria at the Golden Globes and Jennifer Hudson at the Oscars. Here's are some ways to get the look:

1. Mac Duggal, $338.00 (great for curvy girls!) | 2. Alyce Prom, $270.00 | 3. Jasz Couture, $498.00

3. The Peek-A-Boo Dress

Leave a little to the imagination with a peek-a-boo dress that boasts cutouts and/or mesh in unexpected places. Emily Blunt did it well at the Golden Globes and Rihanna turned heads at the Grammy's with this look. Check out these options:

4. The Sequined Cutout

When you're sparkling, you can't help but have a good time. That's why sequins are always a favorite when party time rolls around. Here are some options a la Naomi Watts at the Oscars and Anne Hathaway at the Costumer Designer's Guild Awards that will help you shine:

Now I just officially need a red carpet event to go to. What formal events do you guys have on your calendar? Share below!
