With the party season just around the corner, now is the time to get out there and start shopping for occassionwear. If you are looking for bold and beautiful party dresses, you will be pleased to know that there are plenty to choose from.
Bright and shiny
Perhaps the biggest trend of the fall is the shimmery dress. On the catwalks of New York, Paris, London and Milan they were everywhere. There is no doubt that this trend is going to cross over into the mainstream. Expect to see shimmery silver and gold lamé dresses, and other items, appearing in a mall near you.
Shiny shoes and boots to match
The good news is that picking up shoes to match is also going to be easy because shiny gold and silver footwear is also a big trend for 2017.
If that style of shoes is not bright enough for you, treat yourself to a pair of disco ball boots. They look great almost regardless of what you wear them with. Just be aware that they do tend to shed their sequins easily, so you may want to limit when and where you wear them to keep them in reasonable condition.
It is good to see the embellished dress trend of last year continuing into this season. They are very striking and because they are normally made from good quality material and are a little heavier they tend to hang really well. Even after a full evening of dancing they usually still look perfect.
Long and fancy
There really is nothing quite as glamorous as a full-length party dress or prom style gown. There are quite a few styles available, so all you need to do is to try a few on and see which one takes your fancy.
It is also still possible to pick up beaded and embroidered maxi dresses, which are quite glamorous and sexy. Those that feature fuller skirts and softer materials are usually the best option for the curvier woman.
A high neck lace dress
If it is a sophisticated look you are after, a high neck lace shift dress is the way to go. Naturally, they are not for everyone, but if you have the confidence to wear one you will certainly turn heads. If you like the sound of that style of dress, it is worth taking the time to read this. This article explains how to choose the best plus size shift dress for your body shape.
Fun and short skater dresses
If you are looking for something less formal think about buying a skater dress instead. Just be sure to take a long coat to wear over the top if you are likely to have to walk a long way to the party venue. Once you are inside and get out on the dance floor you will be warm enough, but you really do not want to arrive at your party venue with your teeth chattering.
