The stars have been loving feather dresses this year, and now you can grab this trend for your own winter formal dress. They're a seriously daring look, but if you can handle it you'll never be forgotten! Just be careful not to lose any feathers as the night goes on!

2. High-Low Dresses

High-Low Dresses
The great thing about high-low dresses is that you get the benefits of both long and short skirts! These asymmetrical hems are a flirty way to show off your legs, and don't forget to wear amazing shoes for maximum effect!

3. Sequinned Dresses

Sequinned Dresses
No party is complete without sequins! They sparkle, captivate, and enhance your look with some 'Bond-girl' glamour! If a total sequin dress is a bit much for your tastes then don't worry, as there are many dresses that have a sequinned bust, or some sequins woven into the skirt here or there.

4. Mermaid Gowns

Mermaid Gowns
Mermaid is the King, or should we say, Queen of long winter formal dresses! This style hugs your hips and bust, giving you that killer hourglass figure! As you can see, the skirt doesn't remain tight, because it flares out below the knee and will allow you to move freely.

5. Pick Up Dresses

Pick Up Dresses
If BIG dresses, and BIG impact is your thing, then pick up dresses are a good fit for you! This is a slightly more recent trend, so let's look at how they make that cascading, pyramid style skirt! The pick up hem has many points where fabric is picked (pinned) up, pleated, and tucked at different intervals. This results in a 'pyramid' shape dress, and there is often extra decoration at each pick up point in the form of a rhinestone, crystal, or such sparkly baubles!
