Gala Dresses

Upcoming special occasion? Discover gala dresses in a wide range of styles and colors. 

All Dressed Up
Take a spin (or two) on the dance floor in a stunning dress. Traditional? Channel timeless sophistication with dresses from brands like Calvin Klein, Lauren Ralph Lauren and Vince Camuto. A formal ball gown will look lovely in a neutral shade featuring sequins or beaded embroidery. Feeling daring? Go for flattering halters or one-shoulder gowns with modern twists like cutouts, ruching, crisscrossing straps or a long, side slit. Reach for brands like Adrianna Papell, Joanna Chen, Alex Evenings and more!

The Long & Short Of It
Whether you prefer long or short dresses, consider yourself covered. Try a printed, a-line gown or a solid sheath. Feeling extra fancy? A below-the-knee dress is perfect. Pick styles with interesting details like a mermaid hemline or a dress that’s alluring from front to back. A peep of skin goes a long way—keyholes and plunging backs never go out of style. Brands like Xscape, R&M Richards, Betsy & Adam and BCBGeneration have you covered.

The Add-Ons

Finish your look with the perfect accessories. Keep it neutral with a sleek clutch and heels in a go-with-everything shade or standout with vibrant picks. Dress for it! Shop gala dresses for women and juniors from your favorite brands at Macy’s.
