Formal Dresses For Women

Get fancy! Every woman’s wardrobe needs a collection of head-turning formal dresses. From flowing gowns to short dresses, there are plenty of formal dresses for women to match any occasion.

Wedding Bells
Whether you’re the maid of honor or someone’s plus one, the dress you wear should be stunning. Part of the bridal party? Walk down the aisle in a column or empire waist gown from Vera Wang or Adrianna Papell. Be a gorgeous guest in sleeveless or short sleeve sheaths from Calvin Klein and Lauren Ralph Lauren. Have fun with floral print, pastels and bright shades.

Evening Elegance
Headed to a formal affair? Be sure to keep it classic with sophisticated gowns in neutral tones. Keep it interesting with a standout neckline. You can never go wrong with a strapless or sweetheart dress. Chilly night? Go with looks that have three-quarter sleeves, long sleeves or a matching jacket from Patra, on cooler evenings.

Glitz & Glamour
Feel like a movie star in an embellished gown. It’s your time to shine in halter or one-shoulder dresses accented with sequins and beads from Betsey & Adam, Jessica Simpson and Xscape. Can you do without the sparkle? Try a tiered lace gown with illusion panels in vibrant hue.

Shop formal dresses for women of all sizes—petites and plus size included—from your favorite brands at Macy’s.
