evening wear for women

  2. 2. Formal wear and formal dress are general terms for clothing suitable for formal social events, such as a wedding, formal garden party or dinner, cotillion, dance, or race. The Western style of formal evening dress, characterized by black and white garments, has spread through many countries; it is almost always the standard formal social dress in countries without a formal national costume.
  3. 3. An evening gown or gown is a long flowing women's dress usually worn to a formal affair. It ranges from tea and ballerina to full-length. Evening gowns are usually made of luxurious fabrics such as chiffon, velvet, satin, organza, etc. Silk is a popular fiber for many evening gowns. Although the terms are used interchangeably, ball gowns and evening gowns differ in that a ball gown will always have a full skirt and a fitted bodice; in contrast, an evening gown can be any silhouette—sheath, mermaid, A-line or trumpet shaped—and may have an empire or dropped waist.
  7. 7. WHITE TIE The most formal dress code, typically reserved for events such as state dinners and the Academy Awards • Women: Wear a formal, floor-length evening gown. Go all out with your most dramatic shoes and jewelry.
  8. 8. BLACK TIE Less dressy than white tie, but still pretty formal, and usually reserved for evening affairs • Women: Wear a floor-length evening gown, a knee-length dress with heels, or your dressiest black dress. Dressy separates, like a knee-length skirt and shell set, also work
  9. 9. CREATIVE BLACK TIE Formal, but with a trendy twist • Women: Skip the modest gown in favor of a more fun, but still formal dress. You can also wear a formal knee-length dress, a satin ball-gown skirt with a cashmere sweater or blouse, or tuxedo pants with a silk top. Accessories should be fun and unique.
  10. 10. FORMAL or BLACK TIE OPTIONAL Slightly less formal than black tie • Women: Wear a floor-length gown, a knee-length cocktail dress or little black dress with heels, or a dressy suit.
  11. 11. COCKTAIL ATTIRE Festive and fun, but not formal • Women: Wear a knee- length dress, or even dress pants or a skirt with a nice blouse.
  12. 12. SEMI- FORMAL Somewher e between formal and casual, depending on the time of the event • Women: Wear a knee- length cocktail dress, a little black dress, a dressy skirt and top, or even slacks with a dressy blouse.
  13. 13. STYLES OF GOWN
  14. 14. SHEATH The sheath style evening gown, like the usual sheath dress, is designed to fit the body tightly. It is generally unbelted, and has a straight drape. It can have shoulder straps or be strapless.
  15. 15. MERMAID Mermaid, as the name suggests, means that the evening gown is shaped like a mermaid. It is form-fitting at the bodice, and the skirt is designed to resemble a mermaid's tail in silhouette. The skirt may or may not be of the same color or texture.
  16. 16. A LINE The A-line style evening gown is somewhat bell-shaped, it is close-fitting at the top and widens gradually at the bottom, without gathers or pleats. This makes for a simple but elegant appearance.
  17. 17. If the evening gown is trumpet shaped, it is tight-fitting until it reaches the knees, where it flares. TRUMPET
  18. 18. EMPIRE The Empire silhouette involves the waistline coming up to just below the bust, from which the skirt hangs straight and loose, in a simple breezy style.
  19. 19. DROPPED WAIST The waistline is dropped below the actual waistline. The skirt can be fitted or flared.
  20. 20. PRINCESS The princess style evening gown is also tight, cut in single pieces, such as gores, and hanging in an unbroken line from shoulder to flared hem.
  22. 22. Fashion is all about dressing your body. If you know your body shape — and every woman should — then you will be able to find clothes that fit and flatter. Body shape is all about proportion, and fashion is all about dressing those proportions to look their very best. When you think about body types, don't focus on height and weight... focus on shape. A slender gal can have the same body shape as a curvy gal, just as a short woman can have the same body shape as her taller friend. Each of us is unique — and our bodies are, too! Nevertheless, our body shapes are generally narrowed down to five general categories: pear, wedge, rectangle, apple and hourglass. You might fall into one category, or you might be a blend of two or more categories.
  24. 24. Pear body shape Pear-shaped celebrities: Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendes, Jennifer Love-Hewitt, Katherine Heigl Pear body traits: Your lower body is wider than your upper body — in other words, your hips are wider than your shoulders. Your bottom is rounded and your waist is well-defined. Your best assets: Shoulders, torso and flat stomach Your fashion goals: Emphasize your waist and arms, add volume to your shoulders and upper body and minimize your hips. DON'T wear clothing that draws attention to hips and thighs, such as cargo pants or print skirts. DO try a-line skirts, which camouflage wider hips. DO keep hems of pants, skirts and dresses wide to balance the hips. DO experiment with light-colored tops and dark-colored bottoms for contrast. DO look for boat neck tops, square and cowl necklines. DO wear strapless dresses to show off arms and even out proportions. DO try styles with ruffles on top. DO wear jackets that hit right above the waist. DO opt for pointy-toed shoes to elongate your legs.
  26. 26. Wedge-shaped celebs: Naomi Campbell, Demi Moore, Renee Zellweger, Teri Hatcher Wedge body traits: Also known as the inverted triangle, this body shape features a broad chest and wide shoulders which are large in proportion to a narrow waist and hips. Your best asset: Your legs Your fashion goals: Accentuate your lower body while softening your shoulders and upper body. DO wear bright colors on bottom. DO wear wide-leg pants. DO wear full skirts. DON'T wear spaghetti- strap tops. DON'T wear boat neckline tops. DO wear tops that call attention to your waistline. DO experiment with high- waisted styles. DO look for clothes that create the illusion of a waist.
  28. 28. Rectangle-shaped celebs: Natalie Portman, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, Hilary Swank Rectangle body traits: The waist, hip and shoulder widths are similar and are usually on the slim side. Slender rectangles have an athletic look about them. Your best assets: Your arms and legs — and you don't have to minimize any body features. Your fashion goals: Create curves and show off slender legs and arms. DO wear scoop neck and sweetheart tops to create curves. DO wear long jackets to create a lean look. DO wear tops with collars, ruffles and details to flatter your chest. DO wear a good bra that will make the most of what you have. DON'T wear overwhelming styles. DO layer to add more dimensions. DO wear dresses with ruching. Cinches on sides are ideal. DO have fun with colorful bottoms... feel free to experiment.
  30. 30. Apple-shaped celebs: Drew Barrymore, Queen Latifah, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Hudson Apple body traits: Most of your weight accumulates above the hips, which are narrow. Your back, ribs and shoulders are broad, and you may feel wider than other body types. Your best asset: Those legs! Your fashion goals: Elongate the torso, show off your legs and use fashion to create the illusion of a waist. DO go for monochromatic looks. DO go for v-neck tops to create the illusion of a longer torso. DO wear a bra that offers good lift and support. DO wear belts at the smallest part of your waist. DO conceal tummy bulge by wearing empire tops and dresses. DO wear boot cut and flared jeans to create an even line from the shoulders down. DO wear shorter skirts to show off your legs and draw attention away from your midsection.
  31. 31. HOUR GLASS
  32. 32. Hourglass body type Hourglass-shaped celebs: Beyonce, Salma Hayek, Scarlett Johansson, Halle Berry, Vanessa Minnillo Hourglass body traits: Your shoulders and hips are similar in proportion and set off by a tiny waist. Your best assets: Curves, curves, curves! Your fashion goals: Show off your curves... without going overboard. DON'T hide your curves with baggy clothing. DO wear a good bra and showcase your bust. DO wear fitted dresses. DO wear a belt at the waist to enhance your hourglass shape. DO try wrap dresses. DO go for high-waisted skirts to show off your hips. DO pick thin, lightweight styles and fabrics. DO wear skinny or straight leg jeans.
