And the Winner is...Award-Worthy Dresses

Okay, ladies! It’s February! You know what that means, right?! It’s time for red carpets, jaw dropping gowns, and 360 cams. It’s Award Season!

If you’re like me, you’ve probably accepted by now that you’re not going to The Grammys or Oscars this year. But that is a-okay by me because I prefer to sip champagne and watch from the comfort of my couch. From pre show Red Carpet coverage to the Fashion Police wrap up (RIP Joan) to reading blogs the next day for the latest fashion causalities, I just can’t get enough. So in the spirit of award season I decided to put together my very own award show (or award post) honoring the best celeb-inspired dresses you can wear in IRL.

Southern Style Squad would like to nominate...


1.      The Classic Full-Length Dress

This gold sequin dress, appropriately named The Award Goes To, also gets the award for “Most Likely to Give Your Ex a Heart Attack”. Can you imagine this with a sophisticated updo and a gold clutch?! Might as well write “Eat Your Heart Out” across the chest of the dress.

2.      The Halter Dress

This black and rose gold dress wins the Southern Style Squad award for “Most Likely to Break a Nail and not Bitch and Moan About it for the Next Hour”. It’s cute, it’s fun, and it’s over your drama.


3.      Two-Piece Dress

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m obsessed with two piece dresses right now. They totally define your torso, and create such a playful silhouette. A pair of lace up nude heels, a high pony, and this dress?! I’m there. Scarlett Olivia proudly presenting the Southern Style Squad award for “Most Likely to Leave a Twinkle in Your Eye”.

4.      Lace Dress

The beautiful, the bold, the brave! It takes a certain kind of woman to be able to rock a short lace dress. Confidence is key. Add wavy long locks and nude heels and you’re ready to conquer the world – or at least, the party.  Southern Style Squad Award? “Most Likely to Dance The Night Away.”

5.      Long-Sleeve Body Con Dress

In the paleness of winter (and no, I’m not referring to the landscape, I’m referring to my poor ghostly white skin), sometimes the last thing I want is to be broadcasting my paleness to the whole world. In these scenarios I opt for a long-sleeve dress and dark, opaque tights.  For this, we award this long sleeve dress “Most Likely to Order the Whiskey”.

6.      Romantic Dress

This pretty pink maxi dress is pure romance.  Our final Southern Style Squad award goes to this dress for “Most Likely to Catch the Bouquet”.
