Don't allow yourself to to limit the choices or purchasing a dress for a Military Ball Event. Just because its not prom, doesn't mean you should be completely dreary of your dress. It is suggested that you wear a floor length dress, a dress that accentuates your body, but isn't clingy. Long, Strapless dresses are fine, for they are classy and chic in taste. Try to minimize the exposure of too much skin. This includes low cut necklines, and dresses that are opened from the sides. Red, toned silver, purple, gold, tan, green, blue, black are common colors worn to Military Ball Event. Try to limit designs and decorations on the dress.

Back in the day, soldiers use to tease and say, they would bring there dates to show off. Not seen as a joke now, since you're date is person of honor and respect. Try to cover up any tattoos, and wear your dress confidently. Hair and nails are a must, and make note that you wear shoes that will feel comfortable throughout the night.
