Silky, delicate fabrics in pale pastel colors, pleated and draped in ethereal forms will become trendy. Fluid skirts with layers of transparent fabric will look appealing for an evening wear. Feminine dresses like tops and skirts with panels, sleeves, ruffles, etc will find their way into the market this season. Flowing skirts with ruffles in butter cream yellow reminding of the frosting on magnolia cupcakes will be in demand this season. Gowns in buff, beige, adorned with ruffles will elongate the fashion savvy womans silhouette and emerge as a trendy evening wear.



Mini skirts were in vogue for the previous year. On the contrary, maxi will be in fashion for this year. The secret of looking good in a maxi is to select the right type of cut that would enhance the feature of a woman. Flowing skirts are apt for taller women, while shorter women should avoid big flowing skirts as it would make them look still shorter. High heels with a tight fitting waist coat will highlight the long skirt and present a look that is both feminine and glamorous.
