The design of A-line gowns was conceived centuries ago, but the term wasn’t coined until 1955, when Christian Dior used it to label his collection. At the time, it was referred to as the "most wanted silhouette in Paris". Today, the A-line embodies a slightly different design concept – a dress with a dramatic flare out from the waist.
A-Line Gowns for Every Taste
A-line dresses are uniquely flattering to all body types. They are fitted to the waist, drawing attention to the narrowest point of the body, then flare out down to the hem. A-line dresses can be knee-, ankle-, or floor-length. This design minimizes the thighs, hips, and midsection and can attract attention to the bust if one wishes – in that case, a V-neck or strapless bodice will work wonders.
Most wedding and bridesmaid dresses are A-line because of how flattering and versatile this design is. Bridesmaids can wear this dress over and over again on various occasions. A-lines come in an endless variety of materials and styles. A-line gowns are suitable for red carpet events, proms, and evening events in general. Short A-line dresses are by no means out of place at a cocktail party or at Homecoming.

Many brides, bridesmaids, and MOB / MOG choose Andrea & Leo’s flattering and beautiful A-line dresses. However, the designer’s collections are not suitable only on formal occasions. Their dresses can be worn daily. Charming knee-length A-lines with floral prints are very hot this fall. The long gowns, on the other hand, tend to combine flowy skirts with structured bodices.
Gowns come in diverse prints, colors, and materials. Soft pastels are ideal for pale skin, while passionate reds and greens will flatter a darker complexion.
If you want to keep things sweet and simple, look no farther than Madison James. The collection’s highlight is a simple, dark blue, floor-length A-line dress with millennial pink flower print gracing the bodice and the top part of the skirt.
