BELL-SHAPED SKIRTS

Another nod to Old World fashion, the bell-shaped skirt made an appearance down several runways for fall 2013. The dramatic ball gown is perfect for a statement-making entrance, with a silhouette that flatters.

ILLUSION NECKLINES

Romantic and feminine, illusion necklines are becoming as popular as their strapless predecessors. The subtle sexiness has been seen accented with lace, sheer voile and sequins for styles that range from delicate to decadent.

Thanks to Duchess Catherine’s sleeved style choice for the Royal Wedding, it’s apparent that sleeves will be sticking around, especially in the chillier months.
