‘Tis the season — and time to check that list! You know, the lineup of all the fabulous invitations you’ve received. We’re talking black tie galas, multi-course dinners, New Year’s Eve dance parties, destination vacation fêtes and much-anticipated winter weddings. All things considered, celebrations this time around need to go all out with festive spirit, boundless joy and the most statement-making, jaw-dropping looks ever.

When it comes to evening-wear trends, the sky’s the limit, too. Styles, shapes and inventive details all speak to individual personal styles and moods — and with options to fully make the look, and night, your own.

Sultry Halter Styles

Elevate the sporty, shoulder-accentuating silhouette into an elegant evening aesthetic. A satin shawl collar adds a jaunty tuxedo vibe to a refined black crepe gown, while a peek of leg adds a seductive touch. Or revisit — and update — ‘70s disco chic with contrasting delicate micro-pleats on ethereal shimmering gold.

Peekaboo Cut-Outs

Creating a bit of mystery never hurts, especially with a surprise of alluring cut-outs on sleek, longline silhouettes. Play with asymmetry on a one-shoulder mermaid gown with a rounded, single side cut-out, further enhanced with opulent hand-beaded and crystal embellishments. Or, trick the eyes with a sensuous low-plunge-back that extends around as illusion cut-outs at the waistline on a mock-neck halter dress.

Brilliant Sparkle

Shine on and evoke a walking celebration with dazzling embellishments — and in a range of styles. Walk your own red carpet in a one-sleeve mermaid gown, with a rope of illuminating crystals and sequins winding along the asymmetrical bodice around to the illusion-paneled open-back. Or, go full silver-sequins on a halter-topped minidress just made for the dancefloor — and the spotlight. (Bonus: You can definitely rewear and restyle the latter look for a more casual occasion with a blazer, leather moto or denim jacket.)

Fearless Fuchsia

Take inspiration from the Fashion Week runways and celebrity-packed front rows with a shock of hot pink on a slinky silky gown. Embody a modern day Grecian goddess in a romantic corset gown, with a draped shawl neckline and cap-sleeve. Or take inspo from the ‘90s with a bias-cut slip, with intricate diagonal seaming at the waistline and delicate double-straps.
