    Black is the absence of all color according to what we learned in physics, but wearing black embodies images of mystery, sophistication and poise. Choose from these five black long dresses and walk into next formal affair radiating strength and beauty.

    The asymmetrical cut out is a dramatic touch on this gorgeous black gown

    A beautiful ruched bodice makes this one shoulder formal dress a dramatic choice for gala receptions, military balls or prom. An asymmetrical cut out highlights the direction of the gathers and is anchored at the waist and shoulder with jeweled accents. The skirt’s sheer layers swoosh as you move.  Strong and sublime describes the woman who chooses this long black dress.

    Looking for a contemporary and powerful one shoulder black dress? A wide beaded white band tops this trim black evening gown.  This time, the body of the dress is ruched, which masks any extra curves while still creating that sleek line.  The long side slit adds to the drama. I love this dress in any of the available colors, and three more cheers for petite to plus sizes!

    The side slit gives a peek of leg!

    The jeweled neckline gives a special sparkle to this long black halter dress. Kicking the open back trend, this formal dress has a sexy racer back, baring the shoulders and eliminating the need for a strapless bra. The bias cut creates a flattering long skirt with a slight train at the back. You’ll flow into the night with glamour and a certain savoir vivre in this formal gown.

    What do you think? I can’t decide if this strapless black gown is more beautiful coming or going. From the front, there’s that femme fatale glamour in the applique at the lower hip. Multidirectional gathers are graceful and sinuous. At the back, the skirt is cut at a diagonal, which makes dancing and walking not only comfortable, but with a flirtatious shimmer. Va voom! You definitely want to meet anyone wearing this beautiful dress!

    Last but definitely not least here is Alyce Paris’ strapless beaded evening dress. This timeless style featured a v neck jeweled insert that simply sparkles in black. Its sweetheart neckline and empire waist is flattering in all sizes. And if black isn’t your style, take a peek at the other color choices.

    While #PromGirlSMC (style, marvelous, comfortable) dresses are great, there’s nothing like that extra thrill when you score a great dress at a great price! Here’s 5 party dresses that are both #PromGirlSMC and are kind to your budget.

    Jump lbd under 100 at PromGirl

    Black party dress with side drape

    Irresistible and priced just under $100, this cap sleeve little black dress from Jump fits the bill. I love the wrap ruched bodice and fashion  forward side drape.  With a lace upper back bodice, a long keyhole keeps the interest high. Here’s an investment piece that doesn’t break your budget!

    When the party is formal or a gala event, this long halter dress is a glamourous choice. Mixing lace with organza and taffeta is ever so luxurious.  The empire waistline lengthens your torso and looks great on just about every body shape.  This photo shows it in teal (definitely #PromGirlSMC!), but its also available in a very sultry black.

    Not every party demands a long dress, so why not choose this emerald green strapless semi formal gown for your next special occasion? The asymmetrical hem drapes beautifully thanks to the chiffon show fabric. Alternating ruched fabric with beaded embellishment alludes to the sheer panel trend without baring all. Here’s a great example of a classic party dress updated beautifully for the season.

    Finally, I love the very modern flow of this black illusion color block dress. Beginning with the under dress, the rectangle cut out of the strapless lining places this firmly in the 21st Century. Wide color block bands of graduated grey move from the lower hip to the lining hem. A black long illusion dress moves this beauty to formal dress categories.  Such great detail and this long dress is still just under $100.

    Scanning the fall trends, this season is full of dresses to fit your Style, look Marvelous and feel Comfortable.  And a hashtag is born…#PromGirlSMC fit, look and feel for Fall, 2013. Here’s four dresses to kick off this trending topic.

    Navy Blue Party Dresses from PromGirl

    Navy Blue Split Sleeve with a trendy hem

    A navy blue split sleeve dress is perfect for parties and nights out. Here’s that trendy navy blue color again. A narrow braid sparkles across the neckline and shoulders, adding a touch of contrast to this short dress. The easy drape and flowing fabric is ever so comfortable!  Finally, catch that hem! Playing with hemlines is big this year.

    This V back lace party dress plays with ivory and black layers to create a form fitting fashion statement. The large scale floral pattern captures the fall scene. The three quarter sleeves and with minimal seaming let you move freely at dances, cocktail parties, and receptions.

    Playful romantic spirits will love this sleeveless metallic dress. A small scale gold print on a black background shimmers. The updated princess bodice creates a modern profile for a sleeveless sheath dress. Between the back cut out and the full skirt, this day to night dress is strong, marvelous and comfortable.

    Many of us prefer easy separates for every day: denim or black basics with layers that can dress up or down by switching heels to boots or sandals. At night,  glamour is what we want… just like Selena Gomez.

    Glamour with sheer panels and back cut out

    While we may not attend movie premiers or award ceremonies, the red carpet magic sparkles at formal dances, galas or balls.  You can get your own Selena Gomez glamour with these three formal gowns.

    Sheer panels and a back cut out catch their eyes in a Faviana evening gown. Its jersey fabric drapes beautifully and the side slit gives a peek of leg.  This red carpet look lengthens your torso and makes your waist look absolutely minuscule.

    A strapless sweetheart bodice and cascading appliqués add drama to this gold strapless mermaid dress. The mix of embroidery, beading and repeated motifs nod to history while being totally fashion forward. This look is not only super for Selena, but many of us.

    Floor length silk halter dress

    Selena loves silk (who doesn’t?), so who could resist this long halter dress? The jewel neckline and wide waistband are lined with parallel beaded rows. This formal gown is available in a rainbow of colors.

    As much as we love casual wear, there’s nothing like a special occasion to kick up our heels and show another side to our style.
