Evening Wear Trends for 2016 That Your Clients Will Love

As we move into the autumn of 2016, many dress makers will be thinking about the eveningwear customers will be buying for proms, award ceremonies and even Christmas parties. Offer your customers stunning eveningwear designed to be at the forefront of fashion to wear for their special night. These are the trends for autumn 2016 eveningwear that you need to be aware of.

Crop tops

Recently seen on the runways and red carpet, 2 piece eveningwear is in, with crop tops and skirts, for a long and elegant silhouette. This dramatic design is surprisingly forgiving, looking great on a variety of body shapes. More than anything else, confidence is needed to pull off this daring look, and can be absolutely stunning in monochrome.

Lots of lace

Lace has made a massive comeback, and you can expect to see an abundance of overall lace fabrics used for eveningwear. You can easily keep within the trend and offer a more subtle look by keeping lace for the trimming of your designs. Lace is extremely versatile, allowing you to create both sweet, whimsical and romantic dresses and sexy, alluring gowns guaranteed to turn heads.

Bold florals

Bold florals were first seen in spring, but they’re set to continue into the autumn. Used for both long and short silhouettes, florals will be particularly popular for prom dresses as teens look for something that will set them apart from everyone else. Try combining bold florals with delicate lace, using them for traditional ballgowns or for slinky figure-hugging designs to get distinct looks from the same trend.

Delicate embroidery

Offer a bohemian theme by creating eveningwear designs with delicate and intricately embroidered flowers. One of 2016’s best trends, you can offer a delicate and romantic look with an embroidered dress. Bright colours on a black or white fabric will offer a vibrant, lively feel.

Illusion dresses

Illusion dresses have been seen all over the red carpet and have been one of 2016’s most successful design trends. Sheer mesh material acts as a second skin, giving the illusion of bare necklines, backs and legs. This trend works equally well whether you’re trying to decide between subtle or bold designs.
