So whether you're looking to channel your inner diva, or your bohemian side, there is a right dress to satisfy every mood and style. Here are our picks to help inspire your hunt for the perfect dress.
The Bold Beauty
Dying to wear hot pink? This gorgeous gown from Catherine Malandrino is your go-to excuse. The silk jersey fabric downplays the bold hue, while the thin ruffle tiers add an extra dose of femininity to the silhouette. Definitely not meant for the faint of heart, this eye-grabbing dress is bound to draw attention—the good kind anyway. Pair it with minimal gold jewelry and sandals as this dress will be doing all the fashion talking that is necessary.
The Movie Star
Fancy a red carpet-worthy train? Me too. Which is why I had to include this stunning gown from Temperley London. This blush mesh dress sparkles with metallic, beaded, and floral accents. The bead embellished shell cascades into a short train, for a movie star finish. A charmeuse sash adds further glamour to this evening gown while also accentuating the waist for a flattering shape. Opt for retro waves and red lipstick for an Old Hollywood glamour finish.
The Golden Diva
Dripping in glittering gold sequins, this Basix gown is the ultimate choice for the decadent diva. While the top features a bedazzled front, the bottom boasts a sheer skirt to reveal a hint of gorgeous gams. Additionally, a deep V neck, and an open back add to its sultry appeal. Did I mention that this exquisite gown will show off your womanly shape? Just another reason why this show-stopping gown is well worth its $600 price tag.
The Dark Princess
Think tulle is best left for the bride and her flower girls? Think again, with this extravagant ML Monique Lhuillier strapless tulle gown. Done in a glamorous/gothic black sand hue, this stunning evening look feels more modern than frou-frou. Sequin underlay underneath the ruched bodice adds further glamour, while the wispy ribbon at the waist feels delicate and feminine. Pair with a gothic-inspired cocktail ring for a glamorous finish.
The Bohemian Beach Queen
Headed for a beach wedding? Then be sure to try on this paisley print Aqua gown. While the print may feel bold and fashion forward, there is nothing rigorous about the cut of this strapless gown. The empire silhouette makes for a relaxing fit that is both elegant and carefree. Keep your look easy-going and bohemian-glam by opting for silver bangles on your wrist. Also, show off your clavicle in this sweetheart strapless neckline by keeping your neck area jewelry free.
The Sexy Ingenue
Perfect your seductive style in this BCBGMAXAZRIA red gown with lace inserts. This body hugging gown skims your shape in the most flattering manner, while revealing a bit of skin underneath sultry lace inserts. Lace trim also adorns the armholes for a vintage finish that is exquisite and sophisticated. Work this gorgeous gown with pewter accessories including a bejeweled clutch for a glam finish.
Make a bold statement in this Halston Heritage Gown. This midnight blue gown reveals an attached floor-length black cape that feels both mysterious and chic. A matte black belt accentuates the waist, while a boat neckline shows off toned shoulders. Keep your accessories sleek and minimal for a modern finish.
The Grecian Goddess
Show off your feminine side in this floral silk chiffon DVF maxi dress. This Grecian-inspired dress features airy chiffon in a tropical shade, a combination that feels summery and light. Perfect for a night out, or an evening gala, this versatile frock will give you lots of mileage for your buck. Finish the look with metallic sandals and hoop earrings.
