The Celebrity Look
The number one trend for formal events this year is the head-to-toe celebrity look. From Oscar-inspired gowns to chic red carpet looks, you can now get a hold of some of the hottest celeb designer trends for a fraction of the cost. Celebrities spend tens of thousands on their gowns, but lucky for you, you can achieve the same look for well under an estimated 5% of Hollywood designer originals.
Metallic shades like copper, gold, and various shades of silver are hitting some of the most renown runways of the world. Metallic formal gowns are some of the most popular for evening dresses at the moment. If you are not afraid to take risks and stand out, wear a metallic-colored gown and accent it with subtle accessories. This look is our top pick for a modern, futuristic outfit.
Bright, Bold Color
This spring and summer seasons will feature bright hues like aqua, green, coral, fuchsia, and yellow on the hottest designer dresses. Bold and beautiful colors will grace the catwalk with fun, flair, and eye-catching appeal. Opt for colors that are complimentary to your skin tone; warm tones like yellow, coral and pink are great for enhancing a natural tan while cool tones tend to be flattering on peach undertones. The pop of color trend is also making its way into the latest fashion media coverage. A classic black or neutral dress accented with, for instance, red accessories, looks fabulous and very classy at the same time.
This year, the vintage theme has been one of the most prominent in high fashion showrooms and designer runway shows across the world. From Victorian lace to antiqued gold to vintage fabrics, designers have been bringing back retro trends of the past and updating them with a modern, artistic touch. Some of the most raved about outfits on the red carpet this year have been vintage-inspired designer looks.
The cut-out trend has been prominent in dresses, fun tops, denim, and other garments this year. Now, this major fashion trend is reaching evening gown couture houses throughout the globe. Sexy cut-out prom gowns usually bare a bit of skin on the sides of the torso or on the back of the dress. The key to this trend, like many others, is not to overdo it. Look for a gown that has a 'cut-out focal point' that exposes either the back or midriff areas.
Whether you choose to go with a Hollywood look or a retro-chic trend of the past is up to you! Choose a design that you feel comfortable in and that brings out your personality.
