House of Fraser.

Mar 24, 2013

With so many different designers and trends it can be hard to know which ones are for you. Ultimately the best way to discover this is to experiment, but there are certain trends that we see time and time again and they are extremely versatile meaning that just about anyone will be able to incorporate them into their style. Dresses like these are a simple way to ensure elegance and long-lasting pieces of clothing that will be perfect for any occasion. For formal wear, House of Fraser offers a wide range of beautiful clothes, from glitter-covered gowns to printed body-cons. 

Metallic can often be a difficult trend to wear exactly right – you don't want to add any accessories or pieces that will distract from your dress, while you also want to emphasize the allure of it. Because of this, I am a firm believer in applying the less-is-more mantra to wearing this trend. Color-blocked maxi dresses or a dash of neutral-toned fabrics achieve this look perfectly. Whether it be sequins or sheer materials, silver and gold are here to stay and there are so many ways to wear them. If you don’t want to be too over the top try a dress with a little metallic embellishment, those who are seeking an utterly glamourous ensemble, a dress entirely adorned with metallics and glitter are the best option. Iridescent dresses like the ones above are the way to make an everlasting impression. 

From ombre to florals to entirely graphic, prints are offered in with incredible variation. When it comes to prints this season, go for the boldest option. With Valentino using classic victorian prints and Marc Jacobs incorporating imaginative designs in his latest collection, designers are embracing this eclectic vibe. Prints can be tricky at times, especially when you want to find a balance between the dress and accessories. The pieces above are incredibly bold, but as Mary Katranzou (also known as the queen of prints) had said, "Their boldness attracts the right women, don't you think?"

Sometimes, the best way to go is simplicity. There is nothing like a smooth, elegant dress in a monochromatic color. A simplistic black outfit may make the right kind of impression, but going for colors like mint green, purple, and coral pink are even more gorgeous. Minimalism is a trend that never goes out of style, with designers simplifying and deconstructing clothes to the beautiful, bare minimum. House of Fraser offers multiple dresses in a range of electrifying colors; each hue provides a dress with character and elegance.
