Fall 2014 Runway: Evening Wear Trends
Springtime blooms with new life, flowers and an abundance of weddings, galas, and all sorts of occasions. If you're attending a wedding or have a lineup of weddings and events, get inspired by Fall/Winter 2014 eveningwear from the runways. From casual chic to black tie, designers from all over the world presented a myriad of evening gowns and dresses in their collections and you will feel like a teenage girl shopping for prom. Don’t miss these three trends in eveningwear: lace, strapless and asymmetrically draped.
For a nighttime or black tie event, style a more seductive but tasteful lace dress or gown. For a dramatic look, wear an evening gown that is draped all in lace revealing some skin at the neckline or go risqué with a cocktail dress with lace elements. Have fun with different styles of lace from intricate and enlarged florals to a geometric pattern. Designer Tadashi Shoji created a unique orange all-lace, long-sleeve gown with a nude slip underneath to give the artful appearance of lace overlaid on the model's bare skin.

There is something so effortless and romantic about wearing a strapless gown. Perhaps it's the exposed neck, back and shoulders that showcase a more intimate part of a female's body. Wear a strapless dress or gown as is, or go glam with a statement necklace that sits close to the neck. You can have fun with a strapless dress or gown by exploring your options in silhouettes, prints, fabrics and necklines. Badgley Mischka presented a regal design of a strong, corset-like bodice and voluminous skirt of floral brocade.

Let your inner goddess out with asymmetrically draped eveningwear. Designers showcased a variety of classic pieces such as a simple chiffon one-shoulder gown or avant-garde pieces such as mixing fabrics and experimenting with different draping looks. Elie Saab designed a flowing wine-colored gown held together by velvet trim. Wear this trend with any dress that has asymmetrical and drape elements.
