The princess dress is known to many fans of fashion, especially those who like all kinds of balls and similar events. This model is easily recognized by its extremely fluffy down, multiple layers of which are supported by crinoline. Not coincidentally this type of dress has this name because namely such outfits were dressed by noble ladies when attending balls. In spring-summer 2016 season, this model was presented in quite rich assortment. Marchesa, Zac Posen, Oscar de la Renta and Dennis Basso opted for black and white dresses and multiple layers of veiling. Luisa Beccaria has embellished her creations with floral prints and applications. The princess dresses were included in fashion shows by Naeem Khan, Delpozo, Bibhu Mohapatra, Christian Siriano, and other brands.
The fashion on sexy outfits does not surprise anyone especially as designers continue intensively to include then in its clothing lines. These can be dresses in transparent chiffon, decorated with embroidery (Zuhair Murad), completely transparent outfits, with no additional decoration (Greg Lauren, Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini), dresses in underwear style (Ashley Williams, Vionnet, Saint Laurent), daring mesh dresses from Marchesa, designs with slits and cuts of most unexpected forms (Philipp Plein), etc.
Strapless evening dresses
Continuing the theme on sexy dresses, we must definitively speak also about strapless dresses. These designs are called bandeau or bustier dresses. These two models differ little from one another after the cut, but have the same common feature – no straps. So bandeau dresses are distinguished by the presence of a hard brace, while those with bustier can be absolutely loose. The last mentioned are held often due fabrics that keep the body shape or due to elastic bands. These types of dresses are very attractive and sexy as they mysteriously uncover the back, shoulder, neck and cleavage of its owner. Moreover, the bandeau and bustier dresses are very laconic, both in color choice, and after the cut. Strapless dresses recommend us to wear Reem Acra, Naeem Khan, Notte Marchesa, Badgley Mischka, Delpozo, Luisa Beccaria, Giorgio Armani, Ermanno Scervino, Marchesa, Pamella Roland, Oscar de la Renta
One shoulder evening dress
If some designers have opted for dresses with a completely naked top, then others have seen fit to unveil only a part, giving the image even more mystery. This effect was achieved through asymmetrical cut that designers have interpreted it as they wanted. Due to creative fantasy, some dresses can be put in the category of “works of art”.

Accents and décor elements
From year to year, accents and decor elements of dresses increasingly amaze us through the multitude of options. Designers have long ceased to be confined to mere frills and sparkles. From now on, they use not only “tailoring” accessories but also the progress of modern technologies. What exactly is it? Analyzing simple prints at first glance, it becomes clear that this is not just a simple drawing on fabric, but a true 3D work, which amazes us every time by its luxury and realism. The hem trimming also became somewhat more complicated because now, for this purpose is increasingly used fur and feathers. Floral applications and other applications amaze us by their beauty, which sometimes makes it difficult to distinguish from real ones. You look at a dress and you feel like it was abundantly strewn with flowers. We must specify that sometimes these are real flowers. Floral applications, embroidery, fur and feathers can be found on dresses from Alberta Ferretti, Alexander McQueen, Rodarte, Luisa Beccaria, Tadashi Shoji, Francesco Scognamiglio, Oscar de la Renta, Reem Acra, Erdem, Marchesa, Givenchy, Giles, Dennis Basso, Lela Rose, Dolce and Gabbana, Naeem Khan, Andrew Gn, Carolina Herrera, Antonio Marras, Anna Sui, Christian Siriano
Besides the decoration methods described above, designers have used other tricks used before – fringe, layered ruffles, giant bows. Although they could not miss other experiments.

But this is not all. Analyzing collections we can also find dresses made of denim, leather, patent leather, feathers, crepe, silk, satin and other fabrics. Here everything will depend only on the wishes and preferences of women.
And again in fashion is geometry. And if previous years could we witness a tremendous amount of plaid and polka dots, then this season leading are stripes, both straight and abstract (Naeem Khan, Osklen, Kimora Lee Simmons, Novis, Ralph Lauren, Badgley Mischka, Christian Siriano, Zac Posen, J. Mendel).
The main competitor of stripes can be called the vegetal print, which was present in all its splendor on dresses from Sachin and Babi, Alice and Olivia, Badgley Mischka, Oscar de la Renta, Dennis Basso, Luisa Beccaria, Lela Rose. There can be found also different kind of prints. For example, Moschino continued the theme of childhood and fairytale, because of which dresses abound in colors and bright images.
