Beaded evening dresses are quirky and elegant
Beaded evening dresses are stylish and intricately designed party outfits and feature among the most popular styles of evening party wear this season. They have been longtime favorites for teenagers who wear glittery beaded evening dresses for parties and prom events, and have now entered the high fashion runway thanks to designers such as Chanel and Versace. Endorsed by the likes of Victoria Beckham, Keira Knightly, and Jennifer Love Hewitt, beaded eveningwear is the top choice for statement makers and those who enjoy sporting the latest fashion trends.
There is a wide selection of beaded evening dresses available in both designer stores such as Oscar De La Renta, Marchesa, and Altuazarra, as well as local high street fashion stores such as Forever 21. Depending on the occasion at hand, one has a wide range of choice in context with the lightness or heaviness of beading detail; there are heavily detailed options available for special occasions such as prom events and weddings.
The beading detail of the dresses gives these dresses the unique ability to double up as both outfit as well as accessory. It is not uncommon for some people to wear a heavily detailed beaded dress on its own without any Jewellery or accessories barring a pair of heels or sandals. This is advantageous to those who are unsure about mixing and matching beads with Jewellery.
For those who do want to accessorize however, it is recommended to pair a beaded dress with bold, metallic jewellery, as it will complement the sparkle of the beads on the dress. A classic black beaded dress will work well with gold bracelets and hoop earrings, for a retro look. Silver and pewter jewellery pair well with multicolored beaded dresses. Another option is to pair beaded jewellery with a beaded dress, but be subtle so as to maintain attention on the dress.
It is a good idea to pair beaded stilettos or sandals with a full length evening dress, and black heels with shorter length dresses. This pairing will help the shoes and outfits to complement each other; to add more glamour to the outfit; one also has the option of wearing studded pumps or heels with bling and other embellishments.
A clutch style purse is recommended to complement a beaded evening dress as it makes a statement without overpowering the appeal of the dress; ideally choose a clutch in a single shade rather than a multi-hued one. As with the jewellery, metallic shades are recommended. One could take a cue from Victoria Beckham, who wears similarly shaded shoes with her favorite crème colored beaded Giorgio Armani dress, paired with a silver clutch and hanging diamond earrings as contrasting aspects to her ensemble.
The beaded dress is an all-in-one style statement and there is a wide range of them to choose from; from classic monotones to pastels to futuristic metallic shades, the number of options is endless. With the right accessorizing one can create a suitable balance, which will serve to highlight the dress and its beautiful bead work, while bringing out one’s own best assets.
