2015 Evening Dress Trends

2015 Evening Dresses

Every year, evening dress styles evolve change. Evening dresses in 2015 are much more flowing and less formal than they have been for several decades. This dovetails into the trend for hippy chic that you see on the High Street at the moment.

Tassels, frills and hippy chic

The hippy feel is also there in the way dresses and accessories are being finished. Fringes and tassels are there in some of the most recent catwalk evening dresses, but they are short and used sparingly.

A wide choice of styles

However as usual, there is a range of styles to choose from. Eveningwear, to some extent, always bucks normal fashion trends.

Fashion houses are acutely aware that formal dinners, award ceremonies and big parties are extremely important events. Most women only attend such events a few times in their life. This means that women need a range of flattering styles to choose from to ensure that they feel truly comfortable and look their best.

A young woman looking for a prom dress may feel more comfortable in a short dress rather than a full-length dress. Whilst, a woman in her 70s is unlikely to want to wear a short dress with a plunging neckline, so even if this is the trend most evening dress designers ensure that their range still offers some choice.

However, in 2015, the majority of the evening dresses on offer are full-length, made of soft materials, nipped at the waist with a full or A line skirt.
There are some designers that are bucking the trend providing a pencil style skirt, but they are the exception rather than the norm. As the season progresses this may change because pencil skirts are definitely back this summer, but informal skirts made of denim rather than formal skirts for suits. It will be interesting to see if the pencil skirt does cross over into formal and eveningwear later this year.

Influences on Evening Dress Trends

There are several factors that have fed into this move away from the straight, figure hugging, classic evening dresses. As normal, the style of evening dresses, to some extent, follows general fashion trends. Recently more flowing and feminine dresses have become very popular. Last year's trend for full-length summer dresses made from soft, flowing materials has definitely fed into this year's evening dress designs.

What celebrities wear to award ceremonies also influences evening dress trends. This year it looks like black is very much back and plunging necklines are in, but so are single strap dresses. These award ceremony trends will feed into mainstream evening dresses later this year, so styles will change again for the fall and winter.
