For most girls, we only ever get two big occasions where we can dress up and go all out with styled hair, perfect make-up, sparkly shoes and of course a gorgeous dress. Their wedding day, and their Matric Dance! We’ve gone through our mall and found loads of ideas for you to make your Matric Dance even more magical, and your shopping a whole lot easier! The most important thing to find first, is the dress! You’ll find great options at our Forever New, Foschini and Truworths stores. You’ll LOVE these options from Forever New:

We especially love this glitter dress with bow detail, and this simple and elegant brown silk dress that would suit any body shape! Tie the look together with a gorgeous clutch and high-heeled shoes and you’re good to go! We also love this black and gold dress below, which would go perfectly with a gold clutch and gold shoes! The white and silver dress is equally gorgeous and would look great on anybody. Come have a look at our Forever New branch to see what else they have, and maybe call ahead to check stock levels and sizes on all these options.

Truworths and Foschini always have hidden treasures to find. It seems like Truworths is LOVING bows with all these sweet, feminine options below. We’re seeing a lot of dusty pink, glitter and gold in our stores this season. Again, please check with all the stores on their availability before rushing in to purchase one of these dream dresses.

Foschini has lots of great options too, and we know that they have even more options in store. We’re obsessed with this gold, strapless bodycon dress below! The classic red is also a great look and this grey detailed dress is very elegant and flattering. We just know that you’ll find the perfect dress for you! Don’t forget the clutch bag, shoes and earrings!

Now that your dress is sorted out, you’ll know exactly what kind of hair and make-up will work with your look! Are you going to go with natural make-up, or dark and smoky? If you have a good eye, you can do your make-up yourself, or get ready with a friend who has a knack for it! Mom might be able to help, too. You can shop makeup at all our department stores, Clicks and Dis-Chem! We also have Signature Cosmetics & Fragrances, as well as a Sorbet store. You might want to try wearing false eyelashes on the night, too. Definitely practice your look way in advance of the big night!

With make-up out of the way, it’s time to start thinking about your hair! You need to decide if you want to wear it up or down, and if you want it curly, wavy or straight. We highly recommend booking a hair trial before the big night, so that you and your stylist can figure out the look in advance. You also need to see what works best with your dress and the neckline. Make an appointment with one of our stylists at Carlton Hair or Partners Hair Design to help you!
