PARTY DRESSES FOR WOMEN FAQS

WHAT TYPES OF DRESSES ARE SUITABLE FOR PARTIES?

Dresses are a staple in every modern woman’s wardrobe, but there are so many variations it can be challenging to know when to wear which styles.

Whether you find yourself invited to black-tie events frequently or have an upcoming special occasion you’re planning for, you’ll find something in our selection of party dresses to meet the moment.

Floor-length gowns are usually encouraged for the most formal occasions like white-tie and black-tie events. You might even pair them with a jacket or shawl for especially elegant events. However, many long dresses can be made more casual with the right accessories.

Short party dresses are acceptable for many occasions like cocktail parties, weddings, and even professional events.

When choosing a dress, fabric, design details, and length are all factors to consider. Shop our entire collection of dresses to find one that fits the occasion.

WHAT TYPES OF PARTY DRESSES FOR WOMEN DOES WHBM CARRY?

If you’re shopping for party dresses that capture modern elegance, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve curated a collection of party dresses for every woman and every occasion. 

Our selection is always evolving to cater to the ever-changing trends, but we always strive to create timeless pieces that you can wear more than once. You’ll find structured sheath dresses, flowing styles, and midi dresses that can be dressed up or down with ease.

Our classic cocktail dresses feature a full spectrum of silhouettes, from structured and simplistic to pleated and flowy. Maxi dresses are made with fabrics that move you lend to more casual affairs and upscale events.

For more definition, some of our party dresses for women are belted or feature beautifully laid ruching. All of our dresses are carefully crafted with high-end materials that drape just right and are tailored to flatter your figure no matter how you wear them.

Browse our party dresses to find designs that run the full spectrum of color and style.

HOW CAN YOU STYLE PARTY DRESSES FOR DAY AND NIGHT?

A short party dress can be paired with wedges and a sun hat or a slightly messy yet refined updo for a stunning daytime look that’s perfect for tea parties, birthdays, and lunches. A party dress with a severe silhouette was made for nighttime events that allow you to play up the drama.

Often, daytime party dresses are those that feature flowy fabrics and lighter or more whimsical designs. However, there’s no strict rule that says you can’t wear day party dresses in darker shades and light hues at nighttime events.

Many of our women’s party dresses effortlessly transition from day to night. In addition to the versatility of our dresses, it’s worth noting that the line between what’s appropriate for day and night can be blurred with the right styling.

Take a vibrant, floral party dress that might more naturally lend itself to an afternoon event, and add a jacket or shawl and classic black pumps for a nighttime look. Something as simple as a few changes in jewelry can transform the tone of your party dress.

WHAT OTHER TYPES OF PARTY STYLES CAN YOU WEAR BESIDES DRESSES?

Dresses aren't the only clothing acceptable at events. Jumpsuits, women’s suit separates, and skirts with sweaters might even work for the occasion. If you’re struggling to find a look for your upcoming event, use our Style connect to get advice from one of our experts.
