Learn how to pick that dress for dinner and party.

Choosing an evening gown to wear to that formal party can be challenging given your taste and the sense of style you want to project. An evening dress is floor-length clothing worn for formal evening occasions. Formal materials include chiffon, organza, rayon, charmeuse, and lace.

Evening dress shapes such as a sheath, A-line, or fit-and-flare dress in knee-length are appropriate for a less formal event. Black, white, ivory, and taupe are all universally pleasing colors you can choose. Below are typical evening dresses from which you can select your ideal.

Evening petite dresses

Choose silhouettes that fit your entire body. Dress silhouettes such as mermaid, sheath, and wrap are all wonderful alternatives. Lighter materials flatter your natural contours. Lower necklines and slits in such a shape produce an elongating impression. Select a pair of nude shoes that complement your skin tone.

Evening maxi dresses

The idea that a maxi dress is exclusively appropriate for wearing on the beach is no longer true. Designers are now making maxi-formal outfits. Stick to a basic silhouette, such as a sheath or an A-line gown.

The mermaid evening gown silhouette

This evening gown is sultry, feminine, and fashionable. Its form-fitting design draws attention to your natural curves and is best suited for hourglass and triangular body types. It is stunning too for rectangular body shapes, as the tight bodice and mermaid-like tail lend rigidity to the body and balance the upper and lower body proportions.

Evening gown with a round neckline

It is suitable for sharp facial shapes such as squares or diamonds because of the balance between the chin angle and the neckline. It also looks good on skinny or long necks, narrow shoulders, and petite breast sizes. Consider this neckline if you are tall and slender.
