When it comes to debs season, showing your style smarts is no mean task. How much to spend? What to spend it on?
Making an entrance however doesn’t mean breaking the bank.
There are plenty of options, from hot celebrity labels like Self Portrait to savv highstreet gems.
Cork’s Amity boutique offers made-to-order styles; not to mention a selection of convertible dresses (€145-€195) that can be worn in 20 different ways.
Not great at accessorising? Aim for embellished dresses that have the bling factor.
Always add €20 to the cost of your dress for necessary alterations. Most ready-to-wear styles need a nip and tuck for the perfect fit.
Debs all done? Cut that floor-sweeping gown into a chic little cocktail dress. Two for the price of one!
