Matric Dance Dress Trends 2017 is here and with every matric dance dress season brings with it new looks – different cuts, fabrics, colours and flair. Keeping it stylish requires both understanding and utilising the current trends to work for your own body and style.
We’ll look at the five top matric dance dress styles trending this season:
1. Take The Plunge
A deep, plunging neckline elongates the neck and chest area, creating a sleek look. A scalloped edge to line the plunge adds a lovely feminine touch or a few thin straps across the cleavage area adds some edgy detail.
2. Open It Up
Less is more when it comes to the back. The open back matric dance dress trend is very popular this season – whether keeping it entirely bare or with thin straps that attach at the base of the back. This adds a lovely element to the garment where all sides of the dress offer different details, creating a full, beautiful look.
The two piece is taking off fabulously! A fitted bodice with a high-waisted skirt, showing a delicate line of skin, offers one much versatility. Try different combinations of fabrics with this matric dance dress trend : a fitted lace bodice with a full chiffon or satin skirt, appliqué or print – the options are endless. A strong colour and a detailed bodice works well, giving this simple look depth.
4. Sleek Slits
The high slit continues to be a favourite this season. It naturally elongates the leg and thus the body by drawing the eye up and down the silhouette giving it height. Although the height or position of the slit can vary slightly, the specific fabric really sets the look apart – where a slit in a soft chiffon creates elegant, soft flowing movement around the leg but a slit in a fitted stretch lace allows echoes the sleek, sexy look of the garment and allows for an easier walk.
Nude coloured lining under a bold, semi-sheer lace, pattern or appliqué is all the buzz this season. The layering offers a sense of illusion, giving the impression of skin and creating a flattering, smooth look. This particularly works well for formal evening gown.
