It's the season for formal events like prom. college events and weddings. At your next formal event, step out in style with the latest trends. I teamed up with WATE-TV to present examples of the hottest styles in formal wear.
Lace: Lace will be a popular romantic feature seen in formal dresses and wedding gowns from head to toe. It’s a classic look that never goes out of style.
Embellishments: It’s all about bling this year as well as intricate detail like metallic embroidery. Sequins, rhinestones and crystals will be a popular way to stand out.
Illusion gowns, cut outs, and slits: Dresses with mesh panels are very popular this year, as well as daring cut outs and high slits.
Mermaid and ball gown dresses: Two very popular shapes this season are voluminous ball gowns and more form fitting yet elegant mermaid shapes.
Accessories: It’s always important to consider how many embellishments your dress has already when choosing accessories. Keep it simple so that they do not distract from the dress.
