The dresses I have chosen for this article relate closely to current dress trends and to styles recently worn by celebrities. i hope you will agree with my selection and find a dress that will suit your night out!

Key Trends


2010 saw a huge swing towards the exotic on the runways, especially to traditional textiles such as African and eastern prints. The Tribal theme produced an excellent array of beautiful prints that combine sharp colour and shape. The tribal theme can be worn by anyone and is a great way to wear pattern in the evening. A tribal dress is definitely a dress in fashion.

 These two Tribal influence dresses are perfect examples of the popular trend. These two dresses are particularly wearable as they are made in flowing jersey and polyester fabric, excellent for drape and figure skimming rather than hugging. They also require no ironing or special care.

The use of tribal imagery and colour is evident and the choice of colours are vibrant and pretty. The cobalt blue dress would be more suitable for dark skin types. The berry coloured dress would suit all skin types. The neckline on these dresses are typical of the style and allow the dress to be worn with a large long necklace for further on trend appeal. The high neckline is more suitable for small chest sizes. If you have a larger chest, go for a low neckline to extend the neckline.

Key Trends


Lace has been around for centuries, yet in 2010 it made a huge come back. Lace is a perfect way to add a touch of sophistication and sex appeal. Adding lace to an outfit will make you on trend and your dress definitely in fashion. The trend had seen lace used in all colours, but particularly popular, black or nude inserts to show a tantalising amount of flesh around the shoulders or back. Lace can suit all skin colours and body types. Nude lace is harder to wear, so probably best for darker skins, but black lace is great for all.

 This 1920's style lace flapper dress combines two fabulous current trends. The 1920's flapper has become a dress essential in recent years, donned by the coolest celebrities. This lace version is an excellent party number that uses lace to its best. The lace overlay creates texture, yet also provides coverage. The scalloped hem is flattering for the legs and adds vintage appeal. The square shape of the flapper dressalso makes it suitable for all body shapes.

 Combine the dress with a fur stoll for a glamorous evening look and a box shape clutch bag for further 1920's reference. This dress is a winner in the fashion stakes- wear it and dress in fashion.

A different take on the lace trend has been the printed effect. This dress by French Connection is a great day or night time version that combines figure hugging fit with unusual lace inspired print. This style fits perfectly with over the knee flats for the casual chic when enjoying a night with friends or a relaxed party atmosphere. To hit more trends, wear a boyfriend blazer on top.

Corset dress

The corset is a legend in fashion history, worn by woman to create the perfect feminine sillhouette. In fashion history the corset was the cause of many medical problems, from broken ribs to constant fainting. Luckily in present times the wearing of the corset does not need to lead to hitting the floor. The catwalks of 2010 saw a revival of underwear as outerwear and most popular; the corset. For the everyday woman, a corset incorporated into an evening dress produces an excellent figure and immense confidence boost. The dresses described here use the corset in a way that is totally wearable yet undeniably sexy. Dress in fashion- in a corset.

 This black velvet dress combines chic and sexy with ease. The beautiful neck line shaping is then further enhanced by the incorporated corset that laces at the back. The use of velvet is forgiving for all body shapes as the textured fabric reflects light and distracts the eye from unwanted bumps.  The capped sleeves also offer further sophistication against the faux leather corset and trim. The ultimate confidence booster - dress in fashion with a corset!
