Charity balls, corporate benefits, red carpet extravaganzas—there are a lot of reasons you need a gown this month that don’t involve getting married. While certain colors and silhouettes are always in style, this season has a few trends worth noting. “We saw it on the red carpet—so much color, and lots of sequins and metallics,” says Barneys New York’s Fashion Director, Marina Larroudé. “This season, it’s about being bold—wear something over the top! And if you are dressing up, indulge yourself.”
Red and yellow are favorite hues for Spring 2019, and florals remain a popular theme, like the feminine print featured on the Brock Collection’s vintage-inspired gown. How you accessorize is a matter of personal taste, but, as a general rule, shoes, bags, and jewelry should never overpower the dress. Christian Louboutin’s crystal-embellished clutch introduces sparkle without stealing the show. Then tie the look together with shoes that pick up accents from either the gown, the clutch, or your jewelry. You can’t go wrong with a delicate, strappy sandal like this barely there pair from The Row.
