Chic and elegant, evening dresses are a must in every woman’s wardrobe. An evening dress is a long flowing women’s dress usually worn to a formal affair. It ranges from tea and ballerina to full-length. Evening dresses are often made of a luxury fabric such as chiffon, velvet, satin, or silk and can be any silhouette—sheath, mermaid, A-line or trumpet shaped—and may have straps, halters or even sleeves.
Evening gowns tends to be couture and in line with the latest fashions, unless the article of clothing is a ball gown, in which case it will tend to be cut along more classic lines. The second is the fabric. Evening gowns tend to use luxury materials such as silk, velvet, and taffeta, and they may be richly embroidered or decorated with beads, sequins, jewels, and other ornaments. Wealthy women also prefer to purchase tailored evening gowns, which are designed to flatter their figures. In all cases, evening gowns are designed to be worn with high quality jewelry.
The sheath style evening gown, like the usual sheath dress, is designed to fit the body tightly. It is generally unbelted, and has a straight drape. It can have shoulder straps or be strapless. If like this type, a elegant green chiffon formal gown will meet your demond. Mermaid, as the name suggests, means that the evening gown is shaped like a mermaid. The Empire silhouette involves the waistline coming up to just below the bust, from which the skirt hangs straight and loose, in a simple breezy style. It is form-fitting at the bodice, and the skirt is designed to resemble a mermaid’s tail in silhouette.The skirt may or may not be of the same colour or texture. The princesse style evening gown is also tight, cut in single pieces, such as gores, and hanging in an unbroken line from shoulder to flared hem. The A-line style evening gown is somewhat bell-shaped, it is close-fitting at the top and widens gradually at the bottom, without gathers or pleats. This makes for a simple but elegant appearance. If the evening gown is trumpet shaped, it is tight-fitting until it reaches the knees, where it flares.
