There is a large variety of evening gowns for every style and taste, including Basque waist, hankie hem, dropped waist, trumpet, A-line, and many others. Evening gowns with an A-line skirt and a close-fitting top are a great choice for women who like to keep it simple. V-waste or Basque waist makes women look taller, and it is a good choice for short gals.
Evening wear can be divided into formal and semi-formal dresses, which are suitable for less formal events such as a dinner, party at work, or drinks. Longer dresses are ideal for formal events such as galas, balls, formal weddings, and white-tie events. The most formal dresses are full- and ankle-length dresses with a slip or petticoat. Formal wear is made from various fabrics such as metallic lame, georgette, satin, chiffon, silk, and velvet. They are suitable for cocktail dinners, prom nights, formal dinners, wedding receptions, special evening parties, and opera performances. Some party dresses are embroidered and decorated with jewels, sequins, and colorful threads. You will find formal gowns with sequins, stones, beads, and stylish ornaments. Great colors for a formal dress are blue, black, grey, and green.
