Evening Wear: Evening Gowns, Dresses & Accessories

    A special event deserves memorable evening wear from Macy's. We carry evening gowns and cocktail dresses for all types of occasions. You'll also find elegant accessories and luxury beauty picks to perfect your look. From designer evening gowns to your favorite perfume, Macy's has everything you need to make it a magical night to remember. 

    Evening Gowns and Dresses for Any Occasion

    It's important to consider what type of event you'll be attending and your role on that night. Will you be a guest at a black-tie or white-tie wedding? Browse our selection of wedding guest dresses, which range from shimmering sequin-bedecked confections to lavishly embroidered gowns to sleek evening jumpsuits. Mothers of the bride and groom might prefer more traditionally elegant evening gowns or subdued evening separates like dressy tops, long skirts, or palazzo pants. Are you attending a gala for work? Black evening gowns are a safe bet. You can add extra personality to your evening gown with accessories like jewelry, evening shoes, and an evening bag or clutch. Are you going to an opera, ballet, or theater premiere? Formal dresses for these events have extra considerations. You'll be seated for a large portion of the night, so full-skirted ball gowns and elegant long evening dresses in fabrics that wrinkle easily should be saved for future occasions.

    All the Extras for Your Special Occasion

    No formal look is complete without glamorous finishing touches. Now's the time to wear precious gems and diamond jewelry. Evening bags in luxe fabrics like satin and lace perfectly complement formal evening gowns. Would you prefer to carry something ornate? Try a beaded or bejeweled evening clutch instead. Bring along an evening wrap to warm shoulders when you're wearing a long evening dress that's strapless or backless. Women's evening gowns require coordinating evening shoes. Don't worry if the evening shoes aren't an exact match for the color of your evening dress. Black, metallic, and nude dress shoes pair nicely with many hues.
