The Beauty of Bridesmaids and Other Formal Dresses
Bridesmaid’s and homecoming dresses can be formal and feminine with full, ruffly skirts, short and sexy and even a bit naughty. On the other hand, quinceanera dresses are traditionally full-skirted and elaborate. It is a brave girl indeed who would go to her quinceanera in a lace mini-dress.
The styles that may be worn by a bridesmaid include a mint-colored, ankle-length A-line sleeveless gown with spaghetti straps and a self-colored belt that’s made specifically for plus size women. A similar gown for juniors falls to just below the knee and is blush colored. Sheer fabric covers a strapless sweetheart neckline. A berry-colored, floor-length gown like that sold at Formal by Lisa has a plunging, wrap-around neckline, while a pink chiffon strapless gown has beautiful pleating at the bosom. A similar gown comes in vanilla chiffon and has one strap, with a gentle ruffling at the hem of the gown.
A mahogany colored knee-length dress that can be worn either by a bridesmaid or to the prom features another strapless sweetheart neckline. A more modest type of bridesmaid's dress is chocolate latte colored and calf-length, with an empire waist and V-neckline outlined in a lighter fabric.
Homecoming and prom dresses can be a bit daring, as can be seen in a strapless, peacock, purple and turquoise dress with a ballerina-like skirt made of colorful gauze or tulle. The dress is lined for both comfort and modesty. White dresses include a mini-dress with a strapless sweetheart neckline and a poufy, shimmering skirt with a bow at the waist decorated with crystal. Another white dress also has a strapless sweetheart neckline but the skirt, though still short, is fuller. Daring young ladies could possibly wear these as white quinceanera dresses. Variations of the first dress come in navy blue and fuchsia. Both have decorations of sequins and rhinestones around the waist.
A lovely homecoming dress is a one-sleeved, cocktail-style dress made of teal colored chiffon that is attractively draped over the body. On the other hand, a girl who wants to really make a statement might show up for homecoming in a one-sleeved mini-dress sparkling with sea blue sequins. This dress has a draping of sheer blue fabric whose edge glitters with rhinestones and crystals.
Whether worn to a prom, a wedding or a quinceanera, these dresses will not fail to turn heads and linger in the memories of everyone who sees them.
