Party dress time… hurray! After an autumn of working hard, I’m ready to celebrate. Here come the holiday party invitations. Are you shopping for winter dances and receptions? The choices at PromGirl are fabulous. Today I’m focusing on the lbd, the classic black cocktail dress that works so many special occasions. I can slip on a black party dress and instantly feel ready for fun. Do you know that feeling? Let the nights of dancing and merriment begin!
Here’s 5 Party Perfect Black Dresses from PromGirl
With a flared short skirt and cap sleeves, this black sequin party dress definitely plays a sassy and sweet profile. The real fun begins when you swirl around! Its triangular back cut out highlights the center of your torso, always framed with sequins. For the girl who loves a bling, this is an adorable choice priced under $100. For you petites, note the 30″ length! Here’s a lined dress that won’t need hemming AND lets you show off your legs.
Looking for a long, slim profile in your black cocktail dress? Appliqued sequin motifs cover a black sheer panel dress for a trendy take on semi formal wear. The black sweetheart bodice is topped with a sheer panel. The sheer panel extends over the back torso, with a long keyhole opening that further lengthens the look. Choose from sequin embellishments in bronze, red, black or royal blue. Might I add that your budget will love another black party dress option for less than $100?
Do you have a Pinterest board filled with vintage dresses? Let your inner flapper shine when you buy this scoop back shift with long fringe. A geometric studded motif covers this front of this sleeveless tank dress. I can totally imagine styling this fringe trimmed dress with an organza or fake fur wrap. Then again, do you want to cover that deep scoop back? This black party dress features a long tie at the neck, adding another period touch from that trailblazing time for women.
Winter is the perfect time for velvet. Purr…Gotta love this black velour dress with sheer panels. Crushed velvet surrounds sheer panels for a trendy take on a halter cocktail dress. One sheer insert highlights the halter neck. At the back, a sheer panel covers the entire lower back. This party dress looks great in black, but burgundy and navy would be great choices for winter semi formal special occasions. You’d never guess that this cocktail dress cost less than $50.
Jump party dresses are known for their great cut and attention to detail. Sexy and sophisticated, this black lace cocktail dress will become a classic in your closet. Scalloped edges finish the v neck back and front of this knee length dress. The cut creates a dress with a slim silhouette in sizes 4 to 16. Long lean lines accent the wrap effect of the lace and sequin fashion fabric. Who can resist this party dress? Would it be too much to choose this lace dress in black for winter and another color for spring semi formal receptions?
Which black party dress would you choose? Sequins, fringe, velvet or lace… all great choices for winter semi formal events. Time to RSVP and put on a party dress!Tags: black party dress, fringe, lbd, sequin, velvet
While everyone else is anticipating pumpkins, apple picking and autumn colors, I staunchly enjoy my watermelon, berries and green leaves. Dressing for the summer is so much easier than fall. Just slip on a casual, every day frock and you’re good to go. Who wants layers, scarves and (shudder) tights?
With September’s arrival, it does make sense to look for a dress that slips effortlessly into fall. Here’s my pick of
5 every day dresses for early fall, 2014.
PromGirl carries a great selection of casual dresses under $50, so my picks today are all under that price point.
Shirt dresses are making their reliable reappearance for fall. The tiny diamond print on this short sleeve shirt dress interprets the classic with a nod to fall trends. Excellent for layering or just slipping on over the swim suit, you’ll get a lot of wear from this casual dress.
Give a simple cap sleeve dress an adorable kick with wide godets on each side. They give a flirty edge to an A line dress priced under $50. The bright blue and black print makes this budget friendly dress really versatile. Keep the narrow belt or switch it out to create another look. Darling!
Dynamic chevrons in mocha and magenta give a boho edge to this belted scoop neck dress. You can push the ¾ length sleeves up on warmer days, but this easy going dress takes a prize for its versatility. It’s perfect to toss in your suitcase for weekends away.
Maybe your style is more cosmopolitan? Then take a peek at this black and white dress. It’s got an edge but surprises with the lace insert at the back shoulders. You’ve got the look of separates with the ease of a dress, which is nice. If white’s not your color, choose blue, red or all black versions of this knit dress.
Sheer chiffon chevrons cover a belted casual dress. This ¾ sleeve dress has a certain polish that some may call definitely not casual. I still think it’s an easy to wear dress that looks great heading out for coffee with friends or running around town. Style it your way and you’ll see for yourself.
The only dilemma now is which dress to choose. Do you have a favorite?Tags: casual dresses, dresses under 50, print dresses
