Designer Evening Dresses

It is a one of a kind night, a daughter's wedding, a first prom, an important business event—and they all mean dressing in beautiful designer evening dresses. From a simple sheath dress in basic black to a flowing ball gown in brilliant red silk, finding a gorgeous dress makes it easy to create a stunning look ideal for any formal event. Whether the night calls for a formal business party or a black tie wedding, the right dress can make that special event even more enjoyable.

For a formal wedding, consider a longer length gown by Alfani, Calvin Klein or Onyx. Silk or chiffon create a gentle flow that is elegant on the dance floor. Brown, blue, black or red are all appropriate choices for formal wedding attire. Dresses with empire waists, sweetheart necklines or capped sleeves can help create a look that is elegant and fun.

When the evening event is a formal business party, a wider range of designer evening dresses makes it easy to look elegant and professional. Cocktail dresses are an excellent choice, providing a classic silhouette and a professional polish. Bolder colors, patterns and contrasts are appropriate for business events.

Proms offer young women their first opportunity to dress in a formal dress. Younger styles include a polished maxi dress or a bold ballerina style gown. Simpler pieces with cutouts, sequins or other embellishments make dressing for a prom fun. A fun wrap or faux fur cover-up is an elegant way to finish a prom look.

Complete any evening dress look with a pair of classic pumps or dress it up a bit with strappy sandals. Accessorize with jewelry. Add in a simple sheer scarf for a lightweight cover-up on cooler evenings or pair with a full-length winter coat in wool on cold nights.
