No matter if you’re the bride-to-be or a guest to the event, deciphering what to wear for an engagement party can be tricky business. The upcoming winter season has much to offer when it comes to choosing the right dress – from enlivening colours to creative cutouts perfect for showing off that bombshell figure. Here are some tips, tricks and ideas inspired by the latest designer finds to take away the stress and make sure you nail that engagement look!
Flowers & Beads
The standout details in Marchesa’s sister label, Marchesa Notte were in the collection’s necklines, which featured thin straps and off-the-shoulder cuts. The designer always had a thing for brocade floral prints that soon resulted in a range of royal evening gowns in shimmering grey and black shades. These dresses are a perfect choice for a fashion-forward bridesmaid or even for your own engagement party. A bow or choker accessory can add a hint of modernity, too.
Life is a Flower
Light floral prints mixed with other botanical motifs are deemed the most common print type year in year out. This year is no different with Marchesa’s ocean of flowers embracing femininity with layers of tulle and a plunging neckline to suit. With realistic floral fields and a earthy-toned ensemble, you’re bound to cause some head-turning at the engagement party (and why wouldn’t you?)
With delicate, embellished gowns featuring soft tiers and embroidered florals, the winter collection from Needle & Thread would make the perfect source of gown inspiration for bridesmaids and even brides-to-be themselves. From bluish off-shoulder wonders to embroidered corsets, we guarantee you’ll win in this floral competition of evening dresses and Victorian-esque pieces. Accessorise with a pair of stud earrings to really make your outfit pop.
