There are plenty of different evening dress trends out there for Winter 2013 – so how do you decide? Take a look at our guide below as we take a run through dresses for evening occasion.


The Cut-Out Trend

Cut-outs are everywhere: almost every celebrity has given this trend a go and it’s the perfect way to show off your figure if you have the confidence! The above mesh dress works in two trends by adding sheer panels to the cutout area – this is an easier way to wear the trend if you don’t feel like revealing so much obvious flesh in one go.

Statement Cap Sleeves

Make a big statement by searching for a dress with nothing but shoulder detail – look for beading or intricate gold appliqué. Wear with minimal jewels so the attention is directed to the dress and the special design feature that makes it stand out.

The Sexy Leg Slit

This is another celeb favourite. The leg slit dress is huge right now with stars flaunting their legs through the slit which isn’t too revealing and shows just the right amount of flesh. The above design adds a one shoulder element which is even more dramatic – just add red lips and a pair of heels for the perfect evening ensemble.
