Where can I find elegant evening dresses for women over 50?
This is a question I am often asked, especially now that the trend in stores and on the red carpet seems to be for lower and lower necklines and seemingly up to the waist ‘thigh’ splits.
I have found several from an online brand called Gorgeous Couture that fit the bill. They are stylish, elegant- and even those without sleeves are elegant rather than leaving you over exposed. All four styles come in a variety of colours. I hope you like my choices!
This elegant full length black dress (available in several colours ) with a cowl neck and fabulous draping is a great dress for formal occasion. The cowl neckline creates the illusion of a longer neck, while the draping helps to minimise tums and thickening waistlines. Cost £189 from GorgeousCouture.Com
Very Grecian in style, the draping and ruching create a very feminine silhouette. The one shoulder detail offers a more sophisticated look than the traditional strapless dress. Available in 8 colours from GorgeousCouture.Com
A faux wrap maxi dress available in 4 colours. Fabulous! Cost £189 from GorgeousCouture.Com
Simple clean lines, , with a single split to the thigh. Very understated. Available in 6 colours. Cost £189 from GorgeousCouture.Com
I love them all!
