With so many different occasions coming your way, it can be confusing trying to choose what kind of dress is the most fitting for the type of event you are attending. With wedding season quickly approaching, spring and summer weddings have their own dress code, while prom and other school formals call for a whole other kind of attire. Sometimes it can get tricky trying to make sure you are not over or underdressed for the events. Are printed dresses too bold for an outdoor wedding? Can long black dresses be a good fit for prom? So how do you know what’s the best fit for upcoming weddings, parties, and formals? Ever-Pretty is here to help. With our selection of dresses to fit any occasion, you can rest assured knowing that with a little bit of help you can find the perfect dress for whatever event you are looking forward to! Worry no more about whether a cocktail dress is a good fit for a wedding or if it’s okay to wear your printed floor length evening gown on prom night.
What to wear to a wedding? Weddings are a time of celebrating love and the perfect opportunity to wear an evening gown! The great thing about weddings is that as long as you keep it tasteful and not too loud (you don’t want to outshine the wedding party), you can wear anything from a feminine and flirty cocktail dress to a floor length evening gown. Some things to consider are the venue, time of day, and theme of the wedding. If you’re invited to an early garden wedding then you may want to keep it soft, short and simple with a dress like the Light Blue Strapless Flower Ruffles Padded Chiffon Party Dress. This strapless and feminine gown is perfect for a spring wedding. If the venue is more formal like a hotel ballroom, you can definitely bring out your long evening dresses. A gown like the V-Neck Purple Sequins Chiffon Ruffles Empire Line Evening Dress will be a perfect fit for the occasion.
Going to a birthday bash? Birthday celebrations can range from daytime barbecues to more formal parties. As always, assess the tone of the event before going. If you’re headed to a casual backyard party during the day, then you might want to leave your cocktail dress at home. On the flipside, if the host decided to go all out and through a formal birthday party for a sweet sixteen or twenty-first birthday, then your attire must also reflect this. For those in between social events that are get-togethers everyone is looking forward to, be prepared for anything by choosing a dress that you can easily take from day to night. Ever-Pretty’s selection of casual party dresses will have you ready for any birthday party, no matter what the theme! A dress like our Padded Cross Back Printed Sweetheart Neckline Cocktail Dress (Check out our staff review here) is an ideal choice for any birthday bash. Pair this piece with your favorite sandals for a day look and throw on your favorite pair of pumps to dress it up. You can’t go wrong with a dress like this!
A little sparkle goes a long way! When it comes to formalwear, accessorizing with jewelry that makes a statement helps you take your look to the next level no matter which occasion awaits you. Whether you are wearing a floor length strapless evening gown or a plunging V-neck cocktail dress, you can find the right jewelry for the dress. When you’re unsure of which jewels will complement your look for the evening, pay attention to the neckline. If you listen closely, it will tell you exactly what the perfect match is. Sweetheart necklines and bold statement necklaces are a match made in heaven, while one shoulder dresses are a better fit with a shimmery cuff bracelet. V-neck floral print dresses prefer simple pieces that don’t take attention away from them, and strapless long black dresses need a pop of color and a statement piece, because opposites attract! With the variety of silhouettes and necklines in Ever-Pretty’s collection of stylish dresses, we figured you might need a guide to help you pick the perfect piece of jewelry to match your neckline of choice!
Strapless Gowns Love Statement Pieces- Strapless and sweetheart necklines are flirty and fun for almost any occasion. They accentuate your neckline and show just the right amount of skin. However, to take a strapless neckline to the next level, pair your strapless evening gowns and cocktail dresses with a statement necklace and stud earrings. Try a bold pendant necklace that has a center stone or jewel that really stands out. Or, opt for a necklace that is thick all around, sits higher on the neckline and features rhinestones or metallic hues that will really make it pop! To really allow your jewelry to shine, wear your hair in a classic ballerina bun.
One Shoulder Gowns Get a Long with Bold Bracelets- When wearing a one-shoulder gown your neckline already makes a statement on its own. Adding a necklace would take away from the neckline and create a look that might be too busy. Instead of a necklace, choose a bold cuff bracelet that will really shine. Try to choose one with rhinestones or beads that add a little shimmer, and pair them with a subtle pair of stud or hoop earrings to complete the look.
V-necks Enjoy the Company of Subtle and Long Necklaces- When wearing a plunging neckline, the cut almost invites a necklace to make the plunge a little softer. You don’t want to cover-up the deep V-neck with a statement necklace that would also clash with the top of the dress, so opt for a thin piece that sits low on the chest with one main stone or piece in the center. Add a classic and thin tennis bracelet to match the dainty look of your understated necklace.
Is there anything more timeless than the little black dress? We don’t think so! You can definitely do no wrong when choosing a little black dress for almost any event you are attending. From cocktail parties and school formals to weddings and other formal events, your little black dress can accompany you almost anywhere. From party dresses to short prom dresses, Ever-Pretty has a collection of little black dresses that will soon become your go-to pieces for any occasion. As an ode to this classic look that does seem like it will ever go out of style, we have put together a timeline dating back to the fabulous sixties, celebrating the always stunning little black dress!
1960s Glamour- It would almost be a crime to mention the little black dress without taking it back to Audrey Hepburn’s infamous little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The stunning sheath dress became a staple ever since the movie premiered in 1961, and the style is still very much alive today. Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with the Ever-Pretty Lace Cap Sleeve Retro Sheath Dress. Add pearls and a classic ballerina bun to resemble Ms. Hepburn even more.
1970s Style- Although Sandy’s infamous black outfit in Grease isn’t technically a dress, her all black outfit reflects the timelessness and classic look of a tight black outfit. You can definitely wear Sandy’s outfit today and be just as fabulous as she was in 1973. Push the limits like Sandy did with our Lacey Half Sleeve Open Back Short Black Cocktail Dress. Take a note from the Rydell High sweetheart, and add a pop of color with red lips and red peep toe shoes.
1980s- The young Princess Diana stunned onlookers as she wore a gorgeous little black dress on the night her engagement was announced. The style icon paired the low sweetheart neckline with a timeless diamond necklace. Princess Diana loved her little black dress, and chose the timeless look for many of her royal affairs. Dress like royalty and pay homage to the fashionable Princess Diana by wearing Ever-Pretty’s Strapless Ruched Waist Ruffles Little Black Dress.
1990s- The nineties were taken over by the Spice Girls and the little black dress was made especially popular by the most stylish Spice Girl of them all, Posh Spice. Victoria Beckham rarely wore anything other than strapless little black dresses as the Spice Girls turned the nineties into Spice World. From casual to formal occasions, Posh Spice stayed true to her little black dress and stiletto heels. Take it back to the nineties by taking notes from Posh Spice and choose our High Stretch Black Sequins NWT Mini Cocktail Dress.
2000s- The sweet and stylish Taylor Swift is no stranger to little black dresses. The talented and fashionable superstar chooses the classic black dress for many of her most important red carpet moments. At a launch party for her album, Red the star chose an A-line little black cocktail dress with red lips channeling old Hollywood glamor. Get this adorable and classy look with our Black 3/9 Sleeve Scoop-Neck Women’s Short Casual Dress.
Choosing a formal dress for any occasion can be a tricky task in and of itself. Trying to make sure that your choice is cruelty-free and vegan makes the selecting process even trickier but that much more rewarding! You can definitely look fabulous while taking a stance by choosing a vegan gown or cocktail dress. Ever-Pretty has many formal dresses from long black dresses to short prom dresses to fit your cruelty-free needs! We’ve put together tips on how to find the perfect vegan pieces for nearly any occasion. With Ever-Pretty’s collection of evening gowns, cocktail dresses and casual dresses, you never have to sacrifice your values just to look stylish!
Pick a Vegan party dress that will make heads turn while making a statement. You can still look great by only wearing cruelty-free fabrics no matter where you are headed. For a vegan pick that doesn’t sacrifice a stunning aesthetic, choose our V-neck Black White High Stretch Empire Line Casual Dress. The dress uses polyester and is not lined with any other fabric. The v-neckline shows just the right amount of skin, while the unique ruffles make it more flirty and fun. You can easily take this party dress from day to night. For a more casual soiree, wear this piece with your favorite pair of ballerina flats or sandals, and change into peep-toe pumps for an evening look.
If you’re looking for a long sleeved dress for the cooler evenings, opt for a cruelty-free little black dress like our Sexy V-neck Black Ruffles Long Sleeve Mini Casual Dress. This polyester piece will soon become your go-to dress no matter where you are headed. With the right accessories and a little sparkle you can turn this dress into the perfect fit for a cocktail party. You could also wear this Vegan pick with wedges or more casual shoes for a daytime affair like a graduation ceremony.
For a spring wedding, try a more formal long evening gown that’s cruelty-free for the exciting occasion. Add a pop of color to your vegan gown by choosing our Sexy Hot Pink Ruched Bust Long Evening Dress. To make this piece even more fun and flirty, wear your hair in loose waves and add a romantic braid on one side. Your free spirited look will look fresh and fun for a spring wedding, while making a statement and supporting your vegan lifestyle.
Whether you are getting ready for prom, the wedding of the year or a big party you’ve been excited for, it’s important to choose a dress that not only looks but also feels amazing as you dance the night away.
