Top 4 Evening Wear Trends for Summer 2013
1. Glitter and Glamour Go Hand in Hand
Evening dresses are supposed to create a glamorous image. And where there is glamour, can glitter be far behind? In summer 2013, glittering gold and silver evening dresses with sequins and other materials are a huge fashion statement. Opt for subdued make-up if you want to create an image of understated elegance. But if you want to go completely wild, go ahead and pair your glittering evening dress with chunky accessories and over the top make up. The choice is completely yours.
By the way, gone are the days when evening dresses meant only gowns. The super stylish mini dress, the statement making skirt and top and the feminine frock have stormed this category and how.
2. Sleek and Sophisticated is In Too
You are no stranger to the contradictions in fashion. While glitzy, glamorous evening dresses are trendy in summer 2013, a sleek sophisticated look is in too. For a work event or an ultra high profile corporate do, it might be best if you ditch the glitter and gold in favor of something more subtle yet dramatically stylish and impact-worthy. Carolina Herrera showcased precisely such evening dresses in her New York Summer 2013 collection.
The black and white dress is a classic safe option. But if you want to live it up just a bit, opt for something like the pastel hued dress with bold orange design. Not too bright, yet monotony is broken by the orange. The orange sandals sported by the model complement the look perfectly. Fashion, dear readers, as we never tire of repeating is always in the details.
3. Keep it Bright, Short and Simple
Knee length and ankle length dresses dominated the evening wear collections at several ramp shows for summer 2013. Additionally, the focus was on simplicity in terms of cuts and designs. In fact plain monochrome dresses were popular on the runways, with bright orange and red taking center stage.
Evening wear dresses by definition have to contain a certain oomph quotient and in these dresses that is brought about by the focus on the waist with belts or a subtle gathering of pleats around the waist area. And for God’s sakes, show off those legs with strappy sandals and finish off this look with style and élan.
4. Put Your Best Foot (and Shoulder) Forward
And some things never go out of style. In summer 2013 too, sexy evening dresses are a huge trend. And when we say sexy, we mean satin, chiffon, and lace as the material and when we say sexy we mean bold leg slits and daring one shoulder designs. Go on girl, unleash the diva within yourself with these deep royal colors and unapologetic sexy cuts. Don’t forget the dramatic make up and the pout (Angelina Jolie style) for the best effects. The night will surely be yours.
