Draping, pleats, ruffles and frou frou.
Girly is the name of the game when it comes to party dresses this season so pick your poison when it comes to everything fluffy, frilly and ruffled. Cocktail dresses will come with ruffles and flower detailing, whilst longer style evening dresses will be sporting tiered, ruffled skirts and plenty of Grecian style draping will be making a very welcome comeback.
Many people shy away from bold and bright prints, preferring to stick to classic all black or a block coloured dress but the truth is that a vivid print can make a lasting impression and will ensure that you don’t get lost in a sea of black dresses. There are so many different types of print that there will be one that suits you and your figure, it can just take a bit of trying on. Tall and women with strong builds can get away with big prints all over, while petite women should stick to dresses with a strong print, but with a plain background colour, otherwise they can get swamped by the pattern.
Florals, muted watercolours , bold prints and paisley prints are all good options if you want to try out a pattern.
Of course when it comes to party dresses there’s always hot colours that will dominate on the high street. This season it’s all about black, nude and scarlet. Nude is sticking around for another season while scarlet gives you the chance to show off some sensuality.
