The high-low dress looks to be one of the biggest formal dress trends of 2012, and actress Charlize Theron may have set the bar with her
ensemble at last night's Golden Globe Awards. Theron wore a magnificent cream
couture gown with various textured embellishments that landed her on
best-dressed lists across the country.
Theron's outfit was as opulent as it was risk-taking with a plunging neckline
that led to a cinched waist and an elegant crystal brooch pin. On the side of
her formal gown were tufts of fabric that formed a bow and framed the tail of
her dress, which trailed slightly behind her.
Of course, with the front of her high-low dress resting right above her knee,
Theron used this as her time to shine with a pair of dynamic oped-toed white
heels. Her footwear choice was a crisp white which provided wonderful contrast
with her cream-colored formal gown, and she topped it off with a matching
headband with similar embellishments.
White is a daring color during the winter, so take a cue from Charlize and
pair softer shades of the hue with more daring bright whites to give your outfit
subtle contrast you can work with.
