Evening wear fashion: the sexy party dress is here to stay

Formalwear has undergone something of a revolution over the past year, and nowhere is this clearer than on the red carpet.

Long gone are the days of floor-length, stuffy gowns with matching accessories. Instead, celebs are ignoring traditional ideas about appropriate eveningwear (that classic “only expose one body part at a time” we’ve all heard at one point or another) in favour of eye-catching naked dresses.

Just look at the barely-there crystal gown Kendell Jenner totally nailed at the recent 2017 Met Gala for proof.

But the world’s hottest supermodels aren’t the only ones who’re getting to grips with the naked dress trend.

Daring high street trends

Whilst the bravest of us mere mortals are heading to clubs wearing nothing more than duct tape (which to be honest, just looks painful to us), others are taking advantage of the wave of sexy night out fashion that’s currently flooding the internet to channel their inner Jenner.

The new high street party dress is suggestive and form-fitting, rather than completely see-through, and it’s much less intimidating for the average woman to wear.

So that you can start experimenting with this trend for yourself, we’ve trawled through online retailer AX Paris’s latest offerings and picked out five of their chicest, almost-naked dresses. Take a look.

#1: nude bandage halterneck dress

If you always fancied a Herve Leger bandage dress but could never quite afford the price tag, this gorgeous halterneck bodycon mini is the next best thing.

It’ll hug every single one of your amazing curves and draw your admirers eyes to all the right places, making it a super flattering option for all body shapes.

#2: navy long sleeve lace midi dress

Not a fan of showing off too much leg on a night out? Then a midi-length dress, like this long-sleeved navy beauty, is the eveningwear option for you.

The sheer detailing on the arms and skirt, as well as the plunging neckline of the shift underneath, is a subtle nod to the naked dress trend, keeping it chic and fun.

#3: blush floral embroidered bodycon mini

A blush pink colour, delicate embroidery detailing, sheer overlay, a 90s-style sporty neckline – this bodycon mini ticks several of this season’s biggest trends and will see you fashionably through the entire summer.

Don’t overdo it, though – keep your hair, makeup and accessories simple to let its beautiful floral pattern do all the talking.

#4: black sequin midi dress

Every woman needs a good, fall back LBD in their wardrobe for last-minute invites to evening events, and this sequin midi won’t fail you.

The peek-a-boo detailing on the bodice and back reveal a hint of skin, adding just enough interest to this otherwise demure dress.

#5: blush wrap over dress

This gorgeous wrap over dress doesn’t have any sheer detailing, but the cut-out shoulders and deep neckline allows subtle flashes of flesh to keep it in line with the naked trend.

Its super flattering fit is elegant, sophisticated and comfortable, making it the perfect option for longer summer events like weddings.
