Elegant Evening Dresses

When it comes to weddings and birthdays, no one wants to upstage the woman of the hour, but shopping for a variety of elegant evening dresses can be just as fun and fabulous as searching for a wedding gown someday. Every woman wants to look her best, so snag a flattering one-shoulder frock to highlight your best assets. Fortunately for the fussiest fashionistas, there are plenty of fetching and festive options from London Times, Lauren by Ralph Lauren and even Nine West, so every girl and woman is sure to find her perfect match.

Dressing for a formal event shouldn't cause a woman to sacrifice style for comfort. In fact, with the right elegant evening dresses, it’s easy to marry the two and dance the night away in comfortable and ease. Add a little extra sparkle with a strapless bandage dress. Top a similar look with a tailored jacket or on-trend boyfriend cardigan, and unveil that great dress later in the evening.

For families on a budget, stocking up on must-have basics that everyone will be able to wear for years to come is the key to a long-lasting wardrobe. Shop around for separates and pair a sparkly sequin top with a black skirt or trouser for an evening look that’s completely unique. Wear a similar style with black tuxedo-style pants and a professional blazer at the office, and get plenty of mileage out of all those favorite looks.

Super formal affairs call for extra special silhouettes that will truly grab attention. Look for a great beaded gown in a long, floor-length style for an enduring nighttime ensemble. Don’t forget to keep the color palate dark—think black, navy and burgundy—to avoid outshining the bride or birthday girl.

Dancing the night away at a loved one’s wedding or special celebration should always be fun for the whole clan. Every woman needs to feel her most confidant and have fun. That’s why elegant evening dresses come in so many shapes, styles and hues to suit every style. Look for a ruffle skirt for the little ones, and pair a similar shape with a favorite sparkly tank or blouse for a look that’s totally wearable year around. Find these great wardrobe staples—as well as everything a family needs to look its best at a formal affair—right now at Macy’s.
