A visit to a theater or a concert, the wedding of a best friend, a graduation party, a corporate … Here is not a complete list of activities that require us to break away from the usual jeans and T-shirts, dressed in a luxurious and feminine evening dress.
For a modern girl, this garment is the same “must have” as a white blouse and a pencil skirt. Let’s get acquainted with the main novelties of evening dresses – 2018 and choose a suitable outfit for the current season.
Main trend: lightness and frankness of outfits
The art of seduction in 2018 seems to be the culmination. Leading fashion houses offer a choice of evening dresses:
- Completely transparent, in spicy places woven with volumetric colors or embroidery.
- With a high incision opening the leg almost to the hip.
- Decorated with transparent or lace inserts.
- With geometric cut-outs or weave that strongly open the body.
- With a deep neckline or a low V-neck to the waist.
- With open back.
Another fashion trend of the season is spring – summer 2018: lightness. We use gentle, airy fabrics: chiffon, silk, guipure and mesh in combination with pastel or nude shades.
Lush evening dresses
Satin dresses of coral, deep blue or pink color are no less in demand.
The favorites of the podiums today are dresses of the style of Maletta and the case, in second place – outfits with the A-silhouette, the year and the so-called “Greek drapery”.
The linen style and models with the Halter neck are still relevant.
Dress with thin straps
Those who want to look royal during royal parties, it is worth paying attention to the trendy evening dresses with a lush, multi-layered skirt or train.
Important: these models are suitable only for girls with a slender figure. And visually to add growth will help a low corset.
Novelties of evening dresses. Fashion trends of 2018
We can not say that this season the evening fashion made a sharp turn and shocked us with a complete change of priorities. Rather, it continues to develop the ideas of the past year, honing them and bringing them to perfection. However, some novelties are still available.
Trend 1: Semi-transparent tulle dress with floral decoration
Evening dresses – 2018 resemble a lush flower garden, they are so generously decorated with floral motifs.
The most popular are bulk applications of fabric – they trim the bodice and the top of the skirt of tulle or chiffon. It turns out a kind of alternative to a dense cover, which is traditionally worn under transparent clothing. The same function is performed by embroidery with a large floral pattern.
Perhaps, it’s hard to find a more elegant summer dress. In this case, the style of the product can be any, both long models and short ones are permissible. However, preference is given to light, streaming outfits.
Trend 2: Beautiful dress with paillettes
We are already accustomed to evening dresses with elegant patterns of sequins, beads, rhinestones and glass beads. But in the summer of 2018 they will recede into the background. Designers offer to recall the famous models of dresses in the style of disco, completely covered with paillettes and try on them, going to a secular party.
With artificial lighting, iridescent fabric will look particularly bright, and the image will be unforgettable.
Important: The styles of dresses with paillettes should be as simple as possible, but exquisite. Effectively it will look asymmetrical cut, creative décolleté, one-shoulder or high-cut models.

Trend 3. Feather decoration
Almost every collection of evening dresses 2018-2019 includes models with trimmed feathers. This kind of decor can be used fragmentarily – for decorating sleeves, gates or hem, or totally, covering the entire dress.
Fashionable novelty of this season – a combination of a smooth textile bodice with a skirt, of large fluffy feathers. Similar models were demonstrated on the catwalks Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad, adding them with embroidery and rhinestones (see photo):
Trend 4: Crown Top Dresses
The original model with a bodice partially opening the stomach, refers to the most relevant trends in 2018. For krop-top choose a laconic style, lace or transparent fabrics. The skirt is for contrast made lush and complex in cut.
The only minus of this unusual evening dress is that it fits only the owners of a slender figure, without the slightest hints of deposits in the waist.
Such an outfit seems to be created for young girls who are able to emphasize their individuality and style. Choosing a dress at the prom – 2018, it is first of all to look specifically at the model with a crochet-top.
Trend 5: Dress with bow
Simply, effectively and attractively. It’s about evening dresses – 2018 with a bow. A trendy accessory is located in the zone that you especially want to emphasize. For example, at the waist. Or in the decollete.
Tip: When choosing a short dress with a bow, you should discard other ornaments so that the silhouette does not turn out to be cumbersome.
Trend 6: Transparent inserts
Among the fashionable evening dresses – 2018, models with fragments of transparent fabric stand alone. It seems to be restrained, but at the same time tempting. Simple in cut, but extremely elegant, thanks to a contrasting combination of fabrics.
If you want to attract maximum attention without excessive frankness, a dress with transparent inserts, is exactly what we need.
In support of what has been said – photos from the new collections of evening dresses:
Trend 7: Metallic
Charming temptresses in dresses with a metallic tint now and then flash on the catwalks, in collections of completely different designers. There are such models for Paco Raban, Anna Sui and Fashion House Christian Dior.
Tip: Since fabrics with the metallic effect themselves are bright and shiny, you need to be very careful with the choice of shoes and accessories, so that instead of a high style you can not slide into the kitsch.

Trend 8: Gradient
Dresses with a color stretch are not only beautiful, but also help to adjust the figure. For example, miniature girls with lush forms, will add slim clothes with a light hem and a dark bodice.
And the reverse gradient, when the bottom is much more saturated than the top, will suit those who want to appear not so high.
As you can see, among the tendencies of fashion for 2018 there is a suitable option for any of us.
Trend 9: Extended models
A long evening dress with a train looks very aristocratic. Probably, therefore, for many years it, like any classic, does not lose its relevance.
Dress in the floor with an elongated skirt is often strongly opened from above, so that the image is more bold and sensual.
The outfit is more suitable for mature women than for very young girls. Ironically, he prevails among the popular styles of a long dress at the prom. Despite the attractiveness of the model, we advise not to choose it for the school ball – it is impractical.
