Pretty Dresses For Women

Pretty dresses for women are easy to come by with the vast selection available on today’s market. Whether you need a little black dress to wear to a cocktail party, or you simply want to switch up your day-to-day attire with a casual dress, there are plenty of options.

Suzi Chin, Adrianna Papell and Jessica Simpson are only a few designers offering the latest styles in women’s fashion. First, it’s important to consider the occasion. Casual dresses can be worn anytime, during beach vacation, on college campus, or even to work, but more formal events call for something extra special.

The little black dress is one of those go-to outfits that works in just about any formal setting. These pretty dresses for women are simple cocktail dresses that hit right at or just above the knee. Basic black is slimming and works for any occasion, whether you plan on attending a wedding, rehearsal dinner, cocktail party or banquet. They also vary in style such as the neckline and any accents. One option is a sleeveless black dress that has a surplice V-neckline and bust ruching. This pullover style is easy to wear and a T-back style gives it a glamorous effect.

Another option is an asymmetrical dress, such as a one-shoulder cocktail dress. Choose one with an eye-catching accent such as a rosette applique at the shoulder. Many cocktail dresses feature hidden side zippers with convenient hook-and-eye closures and back hem slits.

Evening dresses are must-haves for those ultra-formal events. Wear them as a bridesmaid in a wedding, as a prom attendee, or to any black tie event. Available even in plus sizes, these gowns have striking features like beaded waists, sheer sleeves and overlays, matching jackets, romantic pleats and even glitter.

Find a variety of pretty dresses for women and any other formalwear essentials when you shop at Macy’s.
