I was recently introduced to the wonderful world of Nicole Miller dresses. Shopping for a new year’s eve dress I came upon some Nicole Miller dresses on sale and found myself continually attracted to her unique, whimsical style. Her background in art shows through in each beautifully tailored and stylish dress she designs. Her hip smock dress launched her into international fame as celebrities began flocking to her style. She’s always been and continues to be one step ahead, and certainly ahead of her time.

Many celebrities have been devotees to Nicole Miller dresses, among them are Cindy Crawford, Gwen Stefani, Scarlett Johansson, Hillary Duff, Eva Longoria, Lauren Hutton, Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie. She can somehow pull off high fashion as well as sheer comfort simultaneously, a welcome combination for any woman.

If you can find Nicole Miller dresses on sale, all the better.

Nicole Miller Dresses: Flattering and Body Conscious Designs

Nicole Miller has always been a risk taker, one of her latest risky endeavors is the introduction of her Nicole by Nicole Miller line for JC Penney, the ultimate Nicole Miller dresses on sale. Her bridge line collection makes her pieces more accessible and affordable for the average consumer. This has been a welcome addition to the world of fashion as the recession has taken its toll on people’s buying power.

She has been known as the orginator of the “little black dress”, her designs are made to flatter and skim the body. Some of her newest, modern designs are Techno Metal Dresses, designed with strategically placed tucks and ruching on them to flatter your every curve. They are made of a mix of very unique materials: metal (that's right), polyester, elastane and nylon. She's known for utilizing unique fabrics, part of what gives her that "fashion forward" image.

Classic Tunic Dress

Amazon has some Nicole Miller dresses on sale, in her original Nicole Miller line.

Nicole Miller's tunic dresses continue to be part of what gave Nicole Miller a name. They're widely worn today, due to their comfort, fashion and ability to flatter any body type. This attractive dress epitomizes true Nicole Miller style. It's made of 92% silk and 8% Spandex. She prides herself on her unique embellishments and this one is no exception. It's very modern and great for a fancy night out or a formal occasion. It can be dressed up or down with flats, chunky shoes or a sophisticated high heel. LOVE IT!

If you want to, well... look a little slimmer for the upcoming holidays, this is a great choice. The solid, dark color is very versatile and slimming. Nicole is a whiz at placing strategic pleats on her dresses to create a slimming effect and this is exactly what this dress achieves. It's a v-neck, but isn't cut so low you will worry about "over-exposure", let's just say. This classic knit can be worn for a casual occasion, work or can be dressed up for a fancier cocktail party.

Nicole Miller Dresses on Sale: Her Classic Tuck/Tucked Dress

If you own a tuck dress (also called a tucked dress) you will invariably understand my love for this particular style. It's one of the hottest Nicole Miller dresses on sale. With well-placed tucks (basically little pleats), the tuck dress magically creates that ever-coveted slimming effect by taking your eyes away from, well, problem areas. It's similar to the effect a busy pattern has. Bottom line, you see pleats and wrinkles, but instead of blaming them on the underlying rolls or love handles, they are written off as part of the tucking or ruching.

This classic solid color is a winner! It works as a wedding dress, cocktail dress or holiday party dress just beautifully. It comes in a warm blue color with black straps. I have a very similar Nicole Miller dress, but in black, and it's one of my "go to" dresses. Made of linen, viscose and spandex.

Oh my goodness, I love and adore this little number.  The yellow is so stunning and cheerful!  It's made of silk and lurex, so some care will have to be taken.  However, it's the marriage of all things great about Nicole Miller dresses. It has that cool, modern halter look, flattering tucks and ruching, a wonderfully unique pattern, with a feminine, flowing feel.  This would be a fabulous party dress, the silver on the pattern makes it very festive.

I'm ending with Nicole Miller's Erte Dress. This is a great example of her use of unique, modern and quite bold patterns. As I mentioned earlier, this busy pattern is slimming. This is a fantastic dress for the colder months when you want your arms covered up. It's a very low maintenance dress since it's made of 100% rayon. I love how it has that hip, bohemian kind of look, too. I can see this paired with some cool, boho jewelry and funky platform shoes for a knock-out look!

Enjoy your quest for Nicole Miller dresses on sale.  They are worth the search, no doubt!
