Red carpet. Bright lights. Sweeping, dramatic gowns and high dipped hair. The sweet and sunny summer days are perfect times for Galas. Whether you’re attending a Met-inspired punk event or a regal evening dinner party, prime time for gala party dresses is now. You can envision yourself in any blend, but make sure the dress is right for you and for the occasion. Here are a few of our faves in that lovely, vintage-inspired style you love.
If you weren’t at the Met Gala, you can still take inspiration from it. Take this dramatic conga gown with you to your next formal event. In a sea of gala party dresses, this is sure to turn heads. A long black floor-length skirt opens to an intricate underlay. With an empire waist and spaghetti straps, you’ll keep it seductive and classy.
A Queen regent wouldn’t have had it any better. Make this your next choice for an evening party with an added Victorian style
. Embroidered and classically embellished, Edwardian romance is infused. The high neck is perfect for an up-do and defined earrings. The dress is ideal for any body type, any age, with a romantic royal air.

When a girl wants to be pretty, she shouldn’t skimp on the tulle. Our very favorite new spring Fairy Guest dress
is a blend of steampunk bustle done up with a gathered and flirty design. Made with peachy tulle and dramatic roses, you’ll never look back from gala party dresses like this. Sweetly elegant and oh-so-fun, you’ll float on that carpet (or concrete) wherever you go.

When you’re in love (or want to be) take gala party dresses to the next level with a ruched and ribboned inspiration like Sue Wong’s Romance Beauty. Look for defined designs that are both unique and feminine to complete this style. A sheath length is ideal and will smooth and shape that hourglass to a perfect ten.
Sometimes a lady just wants to have it all. Gala party dresses sometimes err on the side of billowing and structured. Take your party to another level with a sheath black and gold blend like the I am the Dragon Woman dress. Just the thought of a style like this should make you lift your head in defiance. Strong, beautiful, and confident, a dress such as this exudes seduction.
Patterns and designs are either hit or miss with gala party dresses. When looking for more design, go with a color scheme that is either neutral or appropriate for the event. Usually this means darker colors for an evening event. Our embellished gown in Ivory and Silver is a prime example of a fun and flirtatious style that is coupled with floor length allure.
Ladies just love dressing up. Any gala is fair game this season to bring an inspired vintage dress that will speak your mind for you. Gala party dresses are anything but ordinary and you must find the right fit. So, what do you think? Siren or Princess? We’ll keep your secrets.
