Gala Dresses

    Effortless elegance—that’s what everyone wants when they’re searching for an evening gown for a fancy event. But when you’re making a sartorial investment, it’s worth thinking about exactly what you want from a formal frock. Thankfully for you, we’ve taken all the stress out of dressing with our gorgeous collection of gala dresses and gala gowns here at Macy’s.

    Sparkle the Night Away
    Catch their eye with a sparkling stunner. Scintillating sequins, beautiful beads and other elegant embellishments make a formal dress extra special. Shine like a diamond in a gorgeous plus size gala dress that will have you feeling like the belle of the ball. If you’re 5'4" and under, check out petite styles with plenty of shimmer and hems that’ll hit right where they should. 

    L.B.D. (the Long Black Dress)
    Swap your little black mini dress for a floor-sweeping black gala dress. These sleek long dresses create a stunning silhouette and are timeless enough that they’ll never go out of style. Looking for a different hue? A hot pink or red gala dress is a standout look that will make your event even more memorable.

    It's All About the Shoes
    When you slip on a shoe that fits perfectly, it’s like love at first sight! But when you find a stunning stiletto that also completes your formal look, well, it’s more like falling in love with your sole mate (pardon the pun!). In all seriousness, finding the right heels can make or break your evening look, so start searching now. From polished patent leather platforms and sleek strappy sandals to chic crystal-studded styles and elegant embellished designs, there’s plenty to choose from at Macy’s.
