There are many evening dress patterns that you will see people wearing. But not all of them are in fashion, or suitable for you. You so don’t want to get caught wearing last seasons floral maxi dress to a chic party, do you? So, to be stylish and sophisticated, you need to wear evening dress styles that all major designers are sending their fashion models in. That is not to say, that you should blindly follow any fashion trends. You should have your own personal style and only wear dresses that flatter your body type.
Latest Evening Dress Patterns
Forget A-line dresses and ruffled dresses. They are done to death, and are no longer in vogue. It is time to graduate to more sophisticated evening dresses for women. An evening dress pattern that is very hot right now, but which only a woman with a toned body can carry off, is body con dresses. A body con dress is so called, as it is a form fitting dress that ends at mid thigh. Most body con dresses are also strapless and, as mentioned earlier, women who do not have the figure for it, should stay away from body con dress. A Herve Leger bandage dress is a perfect example of a body con dress that is timeless and classic. This dress is designed to look like bandages wrapped around the body. Some of the evening dress styles are available in simple designs in colors like gray, blue, wine and maroon. For those women who want to create an impact, I would suggest a bandage dress with sequins.
One of the must-have evening dress patterns that a woman with most body shapes can wear is the Grecian drape dress. The Grecian drape dress is very ‘in’ at this moment and is seen on Hollywood stars at red carpet events. Although there are many different designs and styles of Grecian draped dress, the one that has remained a favorite and is the most flattering is the one shouldered Grecian draped dress. The choice of fabric can be anything from satin to chiffon or Georgette and organza. Embellishments such as beading and crystals around the waist and shoulders will make your dress more appealing and attractive. You can also choose a strapless Grecian drape dress for an evening dress. This type of strapless Grecian drape dress has a lot of pleating around the bust with metallic high waist bands, and is great for small busted women.
Do you love vintage style clothes? Then, one of the best evening dress styles for you is the flapper dress.

A flapper dress in chiffon or satin with sequins and beads is one evening dress pattern that every fashionista should have.

Evening dresses with sleeves are great for women who are striving for modesty in their evening wear. A nice chiffon or Georgette dress with lace sleeves is just great for a formal event or as special occasion dresses. Some good colors will be wine, maroon, royal blue, aubergine and emerald green.

Patterns in evening dresses like geometric prints, hounds-tooth and checks can be pulled off by very tall women only.
