All in the Details
Show off your personality with eye-catching details. Love a bit of shine? Reach for R&M Richards and Adrianna Papell gowns highlighted with sequins and beadwork. Pick styles with interesting necklines like plunging halters or one-shoulder dresses. Or maybe you love loads of texture? Shake things up with dresses featuring tiered ruffles from Betsy & Adam or all-over lace from GUESS and Vince Camuto.

The Long & Short Of It
Fall in love with short daytime dresses or long flowing gowns for evening.  Try a sheath dress in vibrant florals from BCBGeneration or a solid sheath from Lauren Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein. Feeling extra fancy? Go with long, below-the-knee dresses from Vera Wang. Get ready for enchanting evenings in A-line gowns from Patra. Don’t want to go sleeveless?
