Evening Dresses Fall-Winter 2016-2017
We can not deny that the most feminine piece of clothing in your wardrobe is definitely a dress, especially if it is an evening dress. These articles are designed to engraft the female figure in the minds and hearts of men. A fashionable evening dress can make a real miracle, turning in seconds a simple housewife or office worker into a charming, sleek and elegant beauty. Therefore, let’s see what evening outfits recommend us to wear famous designers in the fall-winter 2016-2017 season.
Evening dresses with train and cape
Trains, veils and capes are indispensable elements in the evening fashion. They give the image a particular chic, elongating the silhouette and creating the stunning effect of lightness and intentional festivity. Choosing a dress with train, you will necessarily have to consider that in such outfit you should walk slowly and carefully, always chasing someone to not step on the long train. If you need to move a lot and actively, we recommend you to choose a dress with a not very long train or a design with a slightly elongated cape, which can be replaced with a simple and transparent veil. You can see examples of dresses in the collections of Bibhu Mohapatra, Christian Siriano, Rosie Assoulin, Julien Macdonald, Reem Acra, Pamella Roland, Marchesa, Barbara Tfank, Oscar de la Renta.
Mullet evening dress
This dress design has already managed to conquer the hearts of modern fashionistas and can be very simple distinguished by other designs: this has hem of different levels. Such cut is characterized by the presence of two indisputable advantages. First, thanks to asymmetric lines, it will give your outfit a certain charm. Secondly, this design fits fashionistas with different body shapes. If the length is chosen correctly, you can visually correct the abdomen and distract attention from protruding thighs. But, mullet dresses most perfect fit slender girls with long feet. Mullet dress occupies a prominent place in Maticevcki, Marchesa Notte, Sachin and Babi, Julien Macdonald, Monique Lhuillier lines.
Layered frills, pleats and ruffles
It is difficult to imagine a festive event without luxurious dresses, decorated in abundance. For such evenings, gowns with frills, pleats and jabots are a perfect choice. Frills may be present in different parts of an outfit: on sleeves, hem, waist or neck area. They may be barely visible and discrete, or abundant, layered and with an effect of glow in different colors in the sunlight. Outfits with such decorative elements are not designed only for parties or other similar festive events. Loose layered ruffles are absolutely perfect for evenings with romantic dates (Valentino, Monique Lhuillier, Erdem, Gucci, Marchesa, Naeem Khan, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Lanvin, Christian Siriano).
Godet style dress
The “Godet” or “Mermaid” design has long become a classic in the evening fashion. It is hard to imagine a more elegant and refined silhouette. These wonderful dresses look like they’re created for the red carpet, for the awards and celebration of important life events. In the new cold season, Godet and mermaid designs were observed in Marchesa Notte, Christian Siriano, Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood Red Label collections.
Whichever is summer or winter, whether its evening outputs, designers recommend wearing bare dresses to the full. Such decision can no longer arouse contradictions, because considering the rich assortment of modern capes, boas, shawls every woman can afford to a little bare their shoulders to the public.

However, most designers have ignored this statement and included in their new line an enormous amount of transparent dresses (Zuhair Murad, Talbot Runhof, Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham, Christopher Kane, Antonio Berardi, Alberta Ferretti, Reem Acra, Roberto Cavalli, Naeem Khan ).
