With December festivities just around the corner and wedding season approaching in full swing, evening dresses are a must have quick fix for that last minute glam look. Whether you are attending an end-of-year party, wedding reception, Christmas party, NYE dinner or even a concert, there is an evening dress for every occasion. This is why I’ve put together 5 different evening looks worthy of the red carpet so get ready to impress and turn heads in any of these looks.

Go Monotone

You remember the saying ‘go big or go home’? This look is definitely an ode to that saying. Embrace the colour of opulence by stepping out in a head-to-toe emerald green shade, creating a harmonious look. Pair emerald with silver accessories and add a burst of red lipstick for that extra compliment. The best thing about emerald is how well it suits every skin tone especially women of colour.

Nude Please

Not a colour for the faint of heart but a nude dress packs a punch of glamour. When styled correctly, a nude dress is very chic and elegant however, pairing nude with rose gold unlocks a new level of sophistication most people can’t fathom. A cross back nude dress paired with rose gold accessories gives you a certain classy and ladylike look we can’t help but envy.

Black Tie

No matter the occasion, a black dress can be counted on to never let you down. A black dress is like a blank canvas so accessorising makes all the difference. When styling a black evening dress, don’t be scared to go all out! Except you want to blend in the background, opt for bright coloured accessories, prints and patterns. Pair black red or gold for an eye-catching evening look.

Red Alert

Red is synonymous with passion, sexiness and excitement so expect a red evening dress to be all of these and more. If you ever need to make a bold sartorial statement, nothing grabs attention more than a red dress. Pair a red cutout dress with gold accessories for a put together statement look. Just in case a red lipstick is ‘doing the most’, opt for a darker lipstick shade for the perfect contrast.

Pastel Delight

Want to look like an eye candy? A pastel evening dress is your choice for a soft yet bold look. Wearing pastel is a great way to show off your soft, feminine and girly side. Pair a pastel blue evening dress with black and silver accessories to add a bit of contrast and grunge to the whole look.
