There are several appealing trends showing up in this season’s formal dresses. One of those trends is a unique twist on the embroidered lacework of a dress. Many women are choosing a dress with embroidered lacework, but with the addition of sparkle. This detail gives a little extra flair to black dresses and others in dark shades of color. Instead of being just basic black, a dress gets a second glance for its sparkly details! Consider some other trends happening with this season’s gowns suitable for formal occasions.

This season many women are passing up the traditional strapless dress for one with a lace neckline. Lace necklines are a stylish addition to dresses in both dark and light shades of color. A woman wearing a dress with a lace neckline is fashionable from front to back! Also, lots of women are opting for matching lace ruffles near the waistline of a dress. The lacework on both the top and middle lend visual balance to a dress making it all the more memorable for a formal event. Dresses of this style and many others can be seen at stores such as Tadashi Shoji.

Finally, women are choosing dresses this year that have appealing details at the waistline. For instance, a dress that has draping at the waistline can help accentuate the slimness of a woman’s waist. Other popular accents include stylish ribbon belts and crisscrossed pleats. These details can be the highlight of an elegant dress worn to a special, celebratory occasion.
