Top 5 dresses to try out this winter : Girls Edition

Wearing a dress in the winter is just as dazzling—if not more—than in the summer season. It also helps that the majority of the cold weather months are centered around the holidays, which means that party dressing (and dresses!) are in full swing. Like any other wardrobe essential, you probably already have one or two go-to dresses in your arsenal, but why not give into the trends this time around and shop these 5 winter dress styles that we—along with many others—couldn’t help but notice? 

  1. Cut-out dresses

The cutout dress is typically characterized by having cut out sections in it which reveal the skin. There are a wide range of cutout dress styles with cut outs being found down the sides, at the shoulders, around the waist and hip areas as well as near the bust and the back.

It would appear that this style of dress was first worn in the 1960s when fashion was moving at a faster pace than ever before in the 20th century. The 1960s bought the advent of the mini skirt and the bikini and was the first time that corsets were worn as outerwear. This trend towards more flesh on show than was ever previously acceptable, meant that the cutout dress was perfect for the era. Today this dress style is commonly seen on celebs walking the red carpets of Hollywood and elsewhere in the world

  1. Micro mini dresses

Micro mini dresses end at mid-thigh and are considered the shortest in length. Although typically form-fitting and sexy for semi-formal events, mini dresses can also be loose-fitting and casual, or crafted in a flirty fit-and-flare style. 

Made to defy seasons, this is one you’ll reach for again and again. Cut from a mid-weight stretch fabric, this fitted dress has an open back, micro mini length and boat neckline designed to flatter the décolletage. Accessorize yours with bold jewelry to complete the look.

  1. Halterneck dresses

A halter-neck dress is one that features a strap running from the front portion of the garment around the neck. Essentially, the front portion of halter dresses is kept in place by the halter-like strap placed around the wearer’s neck. This leaves large areas of the back as well as the shoulders uncovered, creating a very sensual, attractive look. It is named after the halter which is placed around animals’ necks. The halter dress pattern is often thought of as a western innovation and it certainly did originate with western designers.

It was initially used as a swimsuit design because of the amount of skin it exposed which made it really easy to tan when wearing this type of design. Today, of course, a women’s halter dress comes in all types of colors, designs and styles including formal and fancy varieties. Inspired by the cute halter dresses of the west, Indian designers have also started incorporating this bold and sensual cut in various Indian dresses.

  1. Sequin dresses

Sequins (mainly made out of reflective bits of metals) sewn into jackets, bonnets, and dresses were popular among the nobility and wealthy during the 17th to 19th centuries. During the 1920s, after the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun, sequins witnessed a renewed popularity as a consequence of Egyptomania.

If there’s a style of dress that’s controversial, it’s the sequin dress. Some people believe that they have no place in fashion; some believe that they are the epitome of fashion, and others believe that they have their place when worn well.Who’s correct? In our opinion, it’s the last subset that has it right. A sequin dress can look amazing, but only when worn correctly and in the right setting. The other subsets (i.e. “No sequins” and the “yes sequins” groups) are both correct in their own way, which is where the controversy arises.

As you can appreciate, wearing a sequin dress in a manner that’s sophisticated and classy is relatively hard to do, but as long as you understand certain basics of fashion, you will carry it off with grace and beauty.

  1. Dropped-waist dresses

The drop waist dress, also known as the flapper dress, is characterized by its low waistband which usually falls more in line with the hips than at the natural level of the waist. This style of dress gives the illusion of lengthening the body and tends to have a width at the hips.

The drop waist dress was quite common during the 1920s with dresses in this style usually ending just below the knee by 1925. However by the late 1930s there was a trend back towards more formal dress styles and the drop waist was no longer favored in the world of fashion. The style then went into fashion obscurity until 2012 when the 1920s fashion revival brought this style of dress, along with a few other choice styles from the 20s back to the forefront of fashion.

Other winter dress trends such as 

  • slinky slip dresses
  • shoulder-baring midis
  • perfect party dresses
  • statement-making red dresses
  • dare-to-bare dresses
  • pink picks
  • leopard print dresses
  • sweater dresses
  • warm fuzzy fabrics
  • elegant velvet ensembles
  • Turtlenecks
  • maxi dresses, and more.

So here were the trending winter dresses you could style this winter. Although at the end of the day whatever you are comfortable in you must go for that dress and not much care about what people are going to say about it. So, just be confident and make your own style. Wish you a very stylish winter and a Happy New Year!
