Cocktail and party dresses are becoming more complex in cut, more refined, suitable to express your personality. On the catwalk we see less simple elegant dresses, more sophisticated ones, with appliques, feathers, fringe, embroidery and ruffles.
If you love the 80’s style which is popular this season, pay attention to short dresses with long sleeves and glitter & bustier dresses from the Blumarine collection. Metallic silver dress has been shown by Tracy Reese, and if you prefer gold shining, then your choice should fall on the Trussardi dress or striped see through Emilio Pucci gown.
The metallic effect is perfect for cocktail dresses and gowns for parties, so silver and gold are worthy competitors of this fall-winter season. This style dresses are found in the collections of Reem Acra and Rodarte.
For girls who are not averse to plunge into the atmosphere of the 20s with their golden fringe dresses or decorated by fluffy feathers, there are short dresses with the appropriate decoration of the bodice or skirt. Examples – dress with fringe on the skirt by Edun, classic cocktail dress with exquisite feathers by Lela Rose, dress with a fluffy feather trim bodice by Topshop Unique. The most close to 20s dresses are in Marchesa collection.
