Formal Gowns & Dresses

If you have a style icon you have in mind, channel that in one of our formal gowns. An impeccable formal gown draws inspiration from classic styles.

That is where you come in. Add your personal twist to our formal gowns.

Know what kind of event you’re attending and if there is a dress code or not. Think about silhouettes that fit the occasion and start browsing to your heart’s content. Formal events often have a specific dress expectation for their guests, and you want to be the belle of the ball while still maintaining the proper decorum. Be confident in your formal gown and make rounds at the event. Let your beautiful evening gown carry you through the night.

Formal gowns are generally full length. If you would like a less traditional hemline, look for dresses that are hi-low, where the front hem is shorter than the hemline on the back of the dress. Think of trains on dresses to add some drama. Another option is to choose a dress with a traditional floor-length hem that has a sexy high side slit to add a little flair. When shopping, keep in mind that a floor-length hemline distinguishes formal gowns from cocktail dresses or club dresses.

An invitation to a black tie dinner doesn’t necessarily mean you are attending a conservative event. You don’t always have to stick to black, darling.

To spice up your formal look, consider a dress with an interesting neckline. A high, jeweled neckline creates a striking effect and is a great showcase for brilliant earrings or a sophisticated up-do. A deep plunging neckline adds a touch of drama and sexiness to a formal dress. For a traditional, yet exciting, look, choose a sweetheart neckline that accentuates your figure and leaves room for an elegant necklace. Choosing a halter neck creates a breathtaking frame for your radiant face and would be perfect if you’re attending a more conservative event. The neckline of your dress is perhaps the first thing people see, so choose something that reflects the image you want to portray.

Now to color! Choose colors that bring out the glow in your skin and the sparkle in your eyes. If you’re fair-skinned, avoid wearing all white as it may create a washed-out look. However, choosing pastel lavender or soft blue will make your complexion appear delicate and pretty. Yellow tones are usually less flattering on dark-skin, so if you have dark skin you may consider choosing rich colors such as blue, gray, or navy, or even a vibrant, shocking color like dramatic red or pink.

Likewise, carefully consider the fabric and cut of your dress. An A-line dress flatters every figure, but other dress shapes and cuts will allow you to accentuate your best features. Hourglass-shaped dresses draw attention to a perfect figure and, paired with a mermaid-style skirt, can create a stunning ensemble.
