Satin and Lace and Beads OH MY!!- With So Many Debs Dress Choices, Folkster are Here to Help!

One of the most anticipated events of the Leaving Cert social calendar is drawing closer and at Folkster we are here to help you find the perfect debs dress. Whether you call them prom dresses or debs dresses, here at Folkster we have an array of skirt and top separates, gowns, and debs dresses that are perfect for your day.

Don’t tell anyone, but our Folkster Team have a black belt in styling, so it makes sense that they have the top 3 insider tips for choosing a debs rigout! 

  1. Wear What You Love

Pick a dress, a gown, or a top and skirt combo that you’re comfortable in! There are loads of different silhouettes to choose from, make sure to explore all your options. Whether you pick a soft draping a-line, long sleeve sequin dress, dress with flare sleeves, off the shoulder dress, formal maxi dress or a fitted gown, it is important to make certain you can groove and dance comfortably. The Maribel Gown is a soft draping A-line dress, with a gorgeous flutter sleeve that has a bra-friendly backline. This gown ticks a lot of boxes for debs goers and is available in forest green, sage (which is the perfect green debs dress in our eyes, but visit us in-store and see for yourself:)) and dusty rose! There is so much room for swirling and grooving with this gown, we love it. 

Did you know black debs dresses are on-trend at the moment? We certainly understand why. If you’re looking for a black satin debs dress, then our Rian Gown was made for you, this gown is pure black magic. This dreamy black beauty is lined, has a cowl neckline and is so amazing we made it in 5 colours, this satin dress is super flattering too. Sometimes, a black guna is the only option, especially one that will never go out of style ;)

  1. Mix and Match

When in doubt, skirt and top separates are always the answer! Skirt and top separates are perfect for mixing and matching and wearing again and again :) You can create a bespoke debs rigout with skirt and top separates, between choosing colours, mixing fabrics and styles, you can compose your perfect debs look. Pair any maxi skirt, tulle skirt or fitted skirt with a silk, beaded or lace top for a one of a kind debs look. Our Sarena Skirt is like liquid, our customers say it fits and moves so beautifully and it has pockets (who doesn’t love a dress or a skirt with a pocket? We are huge fans in Folkster!) Don’t forget to tag @shopfolkster in your debs look, we love seeing how you style your Folkster pieces!  

Did you know, you can add one of our tops under a gown for some added layering and detail at your neckline too? The Paloma Top is made of shimmering beaded goodness and is the perfect top for styling in multiple ways!  Folkster stylists know all of the tricks ;)






3. Accessorise, Accessorise, Accessorise!

If you are looking for a unique debs look, then accessories are your best friend! You can personalise any debs dress by accessorising with a folkster belt and adding some Delilah Heels, if you’re looking for a new ‘sole’ mate, Delilah heels are the one. If you want to take your unique debs or boho debs look to the next level, layering a Folkster Feather Belt and Imperial Belt should be at the top of your list! If you want some beaded or sequin magic, a Folkster cape is an amazing addition (and a great versatile addition to any wardrobe). Wear our capes over any neckline or a blazer- even after your debs! See how our capes can elevate your look here. These capes make dancing even more fun, the reflecting light adds some extra sparkle to your day! Or, you could be an undercover superhero, don’t worry we won’t tell anyone ;) One of our favourite sayings is “wear what you love” so don’t be afraid to style your Folkster pieces the way you want to :)

Did you know, that our top and skirt separates, as well as our gowns can also be worn as a bridesmaids gown, wedding guest outfit, black-tie event rigout, ball dress, a date night, or whatever takes your fancy!
