Sheaths: Basic yet classic dresses form clean, simple column shapes. Various lengths and fabrics are suitable for corporate parties, official dinners, and more formal events. Fancier versions flaunt sequined fabrics, dazzling accents, or metallic colors.
A-lines: Short or long A-line silhouettes are easy-wear favorites that flatter most figures. They feature upper sections that support your chest, emphasize your waist, and highlight or create curves. Lower areas mask any minor hip or leg flaws.
Mermaids/trumpets: Unique evening gowns sculpt enviable hourglass figures by cinching in your waist and accentuating your hips. Skirts flare out from your thighs to hemlines. Soft materials form attractive shapes. To make bolder fashion statements, look for skirts with extra volume like cascading or layered ruffles, see-through tulle or lace, or high-cut slits.
Ball gowns: Live out your fairy tale princess dreams in fabulously classic ball gowns with romantic skirts spreading outward to the floor.
Cocktail creations: Think cute and playful with fancy details. Pretty fabrics like lace and satin with gleaming frills in festive colors will put you in a holiday mood. Short party dresses with twirl-ready full skirts look flirty and feminine on the dancefloor. Go for mini length if you want to show off your legs.
Little black dresses: Spice up these timeless party favorites by choosing knee-length little black dresses with some zing. Pick sparkly beads, shimmering sequins, sheer panels, alluring cutouts, high-slit skirts, or asymmetrical hemlines.
Slip styles: Sleeveless sheath or A-line silhouettes with straps and sweetheart necklines resemble slips. To add some flair that elevates undergarment looks, search for adornments like lace overlays and beading.
Elements and Embellishments
Bare shoulders: Daring strapless and off-the-shoulder dresses fit the party circuit’s high-spirited moods. Some styles look gentle yet sexy while elongating your neck. Try capricious one-shoulder options that spotlight elegant femininity. Broad shoulders seem narrower because asymmetrical cuts break up traditional lines.
Sleeves: Various styles and decorative elements make three-quarter to long sleeve dresses look sophisticated while covering and warming arms in chilly weather. If you love sleeveless fashions, add wraps instead.
Corsets: Recall classic romance in dresses with corsets. They boost small breasts or support full busts, emphasize cinched-in waists, and accentuate hips. Intertwined ribbons give backs intimate touches. Hunt for trendy ornamental details ranging from beads to bows. Period-inspired corsets pair well with voluminous skirts.
Open backs: Go bold, baring your back in varied ways to display your perfect posture. Clever cutouts and low-dipped backs with or without see-through illusion panels look sexy. Back options include crossed-strap and lace-up styles. For glamorous partial concealment, some dresses also boast creative beading, sequin, or lace designs and placements.
Detachable skirts: These fun transformers feature removable elements that are ideal for extended events. Begin evenings wearing longer, thicker dresses during banquets or official festivities. When the music starts, slip off excess lengths. Remaining shorter skirts allow more moving and dancing freedom.
Lace: Dressy, elegant, feminine lace is an enduring after-five fabric that always looks polished and proper.
Bling: Glittering embellishments will make your dress shine like holiday decorations and lights.
Choose bright shades for social celebrations and darker ones for professional and serious events. Besides classic black, winter-inspired options include:
Burgundies: Elegant versions of expected reds boast deeper, richer burgundy hues.
Greens: Seasonal variations range from pale to vivid to dark. Beading, sequins, and crystal brooches make traditional greens light up like Christmas trees.
Blues: Numerous icy shades of blue are universal favorites. They complement blue eyes.
Purples: Do you long to make grand entrances that attract guests’ attention? Choose luxurious purple tones that lend regal significance to your appearance.
Metallics: Gold and silver dresses with shiny embellishments look festive. Accents like beading, sequins, and contrasting lace colors add captivating textures.
