The right evening dress will surely make a woman feel sexy and confident. When you step into a room in a gorgeous evening dress, you’ve got to admit that you feel a sense of pride and empowerment.
Evening dresses are essential pieces in any woman’s wardrobe. A special evening requires a special dress that gives a hint of your personality as well as highlights your best assets.
As a lover of fashion, I am very excited about the Spring 2011 women’s evening wear trends. Major catwalks in New York, Paris, London, and Milan have showcased the Spring 2011 fashion trends for women’s evening wear. Top designers and brands featured dresses and skirts in a variety of cuts, shapes and styles. They can be skinny, full, cropped or long. Whether you’re going on a hot date, having a girl’s night-out, attending a party or gracing a special event, there are dresses that suit every evening affair.
Spring 2011 fashion trends for women’s evening wear offer a mix of classic glamour and strong and edgy looks. Vibrant colors, pastel colors and metallics are hot this season. Nudes and neutral colors are keys to easy elegance.
Here are some Spring 2011 fashion trends for women’s evening wear you should watch out for.
Sheer fabrics were seen all over the Spring 2011 runways, depicting an ethereal theme. A sheer dress is a delicate and classy way of showing off some skin. For a formal evening event, draw admiring glances your way with a sheer, Grecian-style long dress. A long, flowing sheer dress will allow your body plenty of movement. Not only will you feel elegant and sexy, you will also feel very comfortable moving around with it. Sheer dresses in black, nude or light pastel colors will make you look like a goddess.
A great example of this look is this light blue long sheer dress by Elie Saab.
Whether it is a cocktail mini or ball gown, Spring 2011 is all about an elegant “shoulderless” flair. Yes, shoulder-baring silhouettes were seen all over the Spring 2011 runways. Designers combine daring revelations of skin with elegant cuts and shapes. If you want to slip into a sexy shoulder-centric ensemble next season, try a dress with small cutouts on the collarbone or shoulders. You can also go for a sexy one-shoulder dress.
Here’s a scorching hot shoulder-baring black number from Versace. If you want to go for something soft and breezy, check out this peach one-shoulder Jenny Peckham dress.
An evening dress which features a high slit on the side or in the front of the dress is also a hot look for spring. It will slightly reveal your legs while you are walking.
This nude long dress with a high slit by Elie Saab shows some leg love.
An evening gown with plenty of ruffles is also a key piece this season. Ruffles are flirty and sophisticated. When you’re out for an evening soiree, ruffles give off a fun and ultra feminine vibe. Go for a ruffled dress with a flattering fit, dramatic design and exquisite tailoring. A long ruffled dress is perfect for any black tie event.
The ruffles in this black Emilio Pucci gown add a lot of body, volume and a surge of femininity to this piece.
Sequin-covered and Embellished Pieces
Spring 2011 evening wear is heavy on the glitz and glamour. Sequin-covered or embellished dresses in glossy satins and futuristic metallic fabrics graced the catwalks. Don’t shy away from bedazzling pieces this spring.
This embellished gold dress by Monique Lhuiller is all about glamour.
These are some of the hottest evening looks for Spring 2011. When choosing the perfect evening dress, go for something that is most appropriate for the occasion and that it suits your personality, body type and skin tone.
