A special occasion deserves a special dress. There’s something about an elegant maxi dress that exudes elegance and glamour. Here are seven stunning gowns to wear to events where making an impact is essential.
Vetements x Juicy Couture | Velour maxi dress
This maxi dress was born out of a collaboration between Vetements and Juicy Couture and is crafted from the velour fabric favoured by the ‘90s brand. This figure hugging dress has a back that transforms into trousers with a clever press-stud fastening. This piece is a definite head turner. Style it with a pair of optic-white heels.
Roland Mouret | Addover double-faced satin gown
This double-faced satin gown by Roland Mouret is sublime. A satin folded panel in champagne-cream defines the waist. The full-length skirt is finished with a high hem slit. Add a jewel-tone clutch to make a perfectly elegant evening outfit.
Maria Lucia Hohan | Marianne laced-back silk gown
This icy-grey Marianne gown is the epitome of romance. Maria Lucia Hohan’s weightless matte silk dress has a figure-sculpting bodice flowing into a sweeping skirt. The back has soft laces threaded through rose-gold tone metal eyelets. Add velvet sandals to complete the look.
Valentino | Pintuck-pleated wool-blend gown
This Valentino gown, crafted in black wool and silk-blend, is the embodiment of refined elegance. The dress has pintuck pleats travelling from the neck to the waist while the skirt flares out effortlessly until it reaches the floor. Add an edgy clutch to finish the look off perfectly.
Mary Katrantzou | Shaw sleeveless Cards-jacquard gown
This Shaw gown by Mary Katrantzou is crafted in navy and metallic-gold jacquard. The regal gown is imbued with glamour. The dress falls from the slim-fitting bodice, softly gathered into a full skirt with ankle-skimming hem. Pair with a gold cuff and a sleek leather bag.
Emila Wickstead | Herbe sleeveless floral-print cloqué gown
This white, floral-print Herbe cloqué gown by Emila Wickstead is utterly feminine. The open back, floor-skimming dress is peppered with vintage-style roses and has a gathered neck and shoulders. Choose an up-do to show off the beautiful back of this dress.
Azzaro | Ava crystal-embellished jersey gown
This Ava gown by Azzaro is crafted in lightweight navy jersey and oozes 70’s spirit. The plunging back finished with crystal-embellished crisscross straps is stunning. Choose an upswept hairstyle for a dramatic silhouette that is simply elegant.
