From a basic little black dress embellished with sequins to a simple white maxi featuring delicately embroidered flowers, embellished dresses are a fun way to add a touch of elegance or a bit of funky fun to a wardrobe. Whether the occasion calls for casual understated elegance or full-on glamor, a boldly embellished dress is often the answer. Paired with simple black pumps or fun metallic sandals, a casual dress featuring embellishments is a bright alternative to other dresses.
For summertime, nothing is fresher than a maxi dress embellished with lace, embroidery, or sequins. These long, flowing embellished dresses are perfect for a walk on the beach while still looking elegant enough for a night out. NY Collection and INC International Concepts have both created beautiful maxi dresses with delicate embellishments. Ice blue shines with silver bead-work and pairs beautifully with strappy sandals in silver. Basic black pops with sequins scattered about the neckline. Dressed up with a pair of strappy black sandals, this maxi is more little black dress.
Sometimes a more formal gown is called for and embellished dresses provide plenty of options. A tea length gown in gauzy black, embellished with embroidery at the neck by JS Boutique or a shimmering white sheath emblazoned with sequins by Calvin Klein is stunning for a formal event. Paired with a simple silk wrap, matching pumps and a wristet, these formal dresses are an easy way to get ready for a night out.
Create even more of a statement by choosing dresses in bold prints and patterns. Applique, prints or embroidery, used to create elaborate designs, are a fun way to dress up even the most basic of dresses. These dresses are ideal for everyday use and can also be an alternative to traditional business attire. Keep accessories simple with these bolder prints for an easy and simple look.
