2. Glitter: Who doesn’t love pretty dress all covered with sparkles? Let your inner girly girl shine with a dress with glitter. This is such an easy trend that anyone can adopt because you can go all out or just accent your dress with a bit of sparkle!

3. Off-the-Shoulder: Want something a little more modest but still want to show off some skin? Try an off the shoulder look for a fun twist on a classic dress this date party season. These dresses are perfect to show off some sexiness while avoiding too much skin.

4. Cut-outs: Now let’s say you want to show off your skin in a new, interesting way. Look for a dress with cutouts in unusual places to add some visual interest to an otherwise standard outfit! These are great for the girl who wants to pick and choose what she wants to show off since there are so many styles and variations of this dress.

 

While these options are fantastic, feel free to explore your own trends or accessorize in crazy ways! The best outfit is what you feel most comfortable in so go forth and shop to your heart’s desire.
