Hey beautiful! Gowns have always been in the spotlight and are a must-have piece of clothing for every woman. Also, we, the SlubTeam love to explore the latest trends from the fashion weeks and refine the bestest of the best and predict the future trends every season. Here, we are gonna take a look at the sexy evening gowns from Spring 2018 couture collections.
Couture collections are one of my favorites to watch! Especially if someone is looking to get a dress for weddings or parties or high-fashion events, there’s a trend to choose from for every formal occasion. And when we think of all these events, the first thing that strikes the mind is – a gown! So, let’s take a look at the latest gown trends. This season was all about the fancy and sculptural. It seems like the days of the minimalistic plain gowns are over! We saw hot new details like exaggerated bows, tuxedo-like collars, metallic 3D applique and more. Let’s check out all the latest designs.
11 Sexy Evening Gowns Trends
1. Three Dimensional Elements
Create some drama with huge 3-dimensional elements on the gowns as they are ruling the 2018 couture evening gowns. Extra large bows, flowers and branch-like extensions are what we saw in the collections of Guo Pei, Ralph & Russo, Valentino, etc. Perfect trend for evening gowns. Be bold, be dramatic was the motto at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018.
2. Poofy/ Voluminous Gowns
Do you love Cinderella gowns? Then you’ll surely love this trend! For this year’s couture evening gowns, designers made a case that poofiness anywhere on the gown is trendy. It’s not necessary to have it just below the waistline. Poofy sleeves, exaggerated shoulders, voluminous sleeves are what added an oomph factor to the sexy evening gowns!

3. Bow Detailing
Bows are back! A tiny little bow or an oversized one adds an instant additional pep factor to the gown. A pink colored bow in the gown by Chanel paired with a white gown looked amazing. Oversized bows on the shoulder were seen in the collection of Elie Saab.
4. Waistless Gowns
Bored of the overtight, curve-hugging dresses and looking to try modest clothing? Waistless gowns are the perfect trend! Box and A-line silhouettes are what we saw in the latest couture collections. Go for sheer gowns or statement sleeves if you want to make the evening gown look more interesting.
5. Pocket Gowns
The trend of pocket gowns is here to stay. It was seen in Spring Summer 2017 collections and is keeping up its place even in 2018 collections. Seen in the collections of Alberta Ferretti, Valentino, Guo Pei the trend of pocket gowns is one of the top trends for sexy evening gowns.
6. Jacket Gowns
From long ankle length to cropped ones, jackets on gowns are a super trendy thing! We saw matching furry and feathery jackets, both long and short, in Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier and Elie Saab collections.
7. Coat Style Gowns
Collared and tuxedo style gowns are a fresh trend we’re seeing in couture bridal gowns. Coat style gown with plunging v-neckline is pretty trendy! Coat style with pockets, slit coat style gowns are also one of this year’s best trends in sexy evening gowns.
The trend of ruffles in designer evening gowns is not fading away anytime soon! We have been seeing this trend since last season and is one of the best trends of sexy evening gowns. Ruffles all over the gown or just at the sleeves or hemline, all are trendy for evening dresses.
9. Poofy/Bell sleeves
Sleeveless is out! Statement sleeves are playing an important role in the couture evening dresses. Ditch the plain sleeves and opt for the poofy ones! Bubble sleeves, bell sleeves, poofy and exaggerated sleeves are the different types of sleeve trends to choose from.
Feathers make the gown look really chic! A huge cluster of feathers on the gowns is the current trend as seen in SS18 fashion shows of Dior, Elie Saab, etc. Feather all over the gown or just at the stitch line are also trendy and works well for semi-formal dresses too!
Capes are not going out of fashion this year! For all those who have them, thanks to the designers for still making it a trend in sexy evening dresses! Both contrast and matching capes are trendy, so take your pick!
So, these are the latest sexy evening gowns trends for 2018. I am loving the trend of three-dimensional elements! Which one will you look out for when you go shopping? Do let us know by tweeting @shilpa1ahuja.
