Attending any formal event calls for a lot of preparation. Making sure that you adhere to the dress code is, of course, your number one priority, and you also need to carefully consider what to put into your clutch bag. 

Once you have arrived at the event, you are pretty much on your own regarding any essentials you might need during the course of the event. With that in mind, here are 5 items that you simply must include in your clutch bag when preparing for any formal event.

Make Up

Stick to the touch-up make-up that you may need during the course of the evening, such as blusher or eyeliner. Lipstick is a must, especially if you are planning on smooching with your date. If you are planning for the prom dance and have yet to select your gown, a long white prom dress would be ideal, and with online boutiques that represent a range of well-known designers, you are sure to find the perfect dress for the occasion.

Blotting Papers

They don’t take up much room and if you are planning on dancing, you will want a few to keep your facial skin from oiling up. Pop into the powder room every now and then and you can wipe off the sweat and the oil on the skin to maintain that perfect look. These will also ensure that you look your best for the many photo opportunities by avoiding that nasty sheen that comes with oily skin, so don’t forget this essential add-on.

Fresh Breath Mints

Another must-have item to keep your breath fresh and make sure you have enough for your date also, who might not have thought of packing fresh breath mints. There is lots of close contact at a prom or homecoming, and popping a mint or two into your mouth will ensure that you won’t get caught with bad breath when on close quarters, so you’ll feel confident at all times.

Phone, Charger And Cable

You will certainly want to take lots of photos and some videos, so make sure that you have your phone, charger and cable, then you can fill your memory with many great reminders of a truly magical evening, Don’t forget to check how much memory you have on your SD card, as you don’t want to run out of memory! If it is a formal event, you might want to switch your phone to silent, just in case you get a call at the wrong moment.


If you’re going to be dancing the night away, your deodorant might need a refresh, so pack one into your clutch. Whether you use roll-on or a spray, it won’t take up much room and it will give you peace of mind.

If you have yet to acquire your gown for the event, check out the online designer dress boutique, where you can find a wide selection of quality dresses at affordable prices, and make sure that when you order, you are allowing yourself time for the dress to be tweaked by a local seamstress.

    Wow! This is an amazing dress. You are looking so pretty in this dress. Thanks for sharing such a lovely post with a unique collection of cool accessory. You look so beautiful in these pictures and I would love to wear such dresses with Septum Jewelry. I Agree, accessories gives you a different style statement. Well, if I’d be asked to add accessories to my style, I would prefer jewelry in the first place. I have a huge collection of jewelry from Freshtrends.
