Hi-Lo Dress

  • Sherri Hill 50895 On Stage At The 2017 Oscars

    Last week, we were all about gal celebrities Emma Stone and Jessica Biel at the 2017 Oscars, in their beautiful golden dresses. Of course, they weren't the only gorgeous looks at the Oscars; there were plenty more celebs looking glam from head to toe, from the red carpet to the stage. While we of course loved all of the dresses, we were so stunned to see one of our own prom 2017 dresses hit the Oscars 2017 stage that night!

    Do you know what dress... or what dress designer we're referring to? Hint: it was during Justin Timberlake's performance. Still need some help? It was a Sherri Hill dress!


    One of Justin's dancers rocked Sherri Hills style 50895 during his Oscars performance, showing off that the dress was certainly created for the dance floor. Of course, who wouldn't look good standing next to Justin? But, we're pretty sure it's the dress giving this dancer a gorgeous glow, in this case. We loved that Justin's dancer paired the dress with black strappy heals. We're also loving the red dancer emoji-esque pose that she's pulling off in the above photo ?! Perfection!

    Style 50895 is a bold satin ball gown that features a high illusion plunge neckline, a fitted bodice, and a defined racerback with an exposed zipper and cutouts just above the cinched waistband. It's topped off with a high-low floor-length peplum skirt that adds the perfect amount of volume, and of course flow for the dance floor, with fabric that cascades at the top of the high side-slit, and a short underlay. It's such a unique style that's sure to catch everyone's attention, whether on the Oscars stage or the Prom dance floor (and with or without Justin Timberlake by your side ?).

    To finish off the look with a black strappy heel like this Oscars dancer, check out Mercury by Touch Ups Caged Sandal, Queenie by Touch Ups Sassy Strappy Sandal, or Dale by Touch Ups Jeweled Sandal. You can also check out the rest of our black heels for many other fun choices to pair with Sherri Hill 50895. After you get the dress, shoes, and accessories, all that's left is striking that red dress dancer pose on the dance floor!

  • Accessorizing Your Formal Dress for Halloween

    Halloween is a great excuse for you to go over the top. But why buy a costume when you can use an outfit from your closet...or get those clothes you've been wanting? Just by adding a few accessories to your favorite dress, you can instantly be part of the Halloween spirit and have the dress to wear again any time of the year (without the Halloween accessories of course)! Read on to see how we added some accessories to some classic formal dresses to make them ready for Halloween!

    Little Black Dress

    You can get great use out of any black dress. This Clarisse black one shoulder hi-lo dress is one of our personal favorites (style 2174). Just add kitty ears, a witch hat, or vampire teeth, and you're all ready for Halloween! The real bonus, though, is that a Little Black Dress can be used for so many different occasions that you'll never run out of places and reasons to wear it.

    Dress: Clarisse style 2174

    Shoes: Night Moves by Allure Style Divine

    Fringe Dress

    The fringe dress has been a very popular style lately. The look is taken from the 1920s flapper style, so with this in mind, this type of dress is great to turn into a flapper girl outfit!  This black Mac Duggal fringe cocktail dress (style 3479T) and Touch Ups Peacock high heals are perfect to be a flapper girl.

    Dress: Twelve by Mac Duggal 3479T

    Earrings: Helen's Heart Style E06245 Clear Crystal Stone Earrings

    Purse: Helen's Heart Style FP-2919

    Shoes: Touch Ups Peacock

    White Dress

    White formal dresses are always stand-out pieces at any event. For Halloween, just add wings and you can be a beautiful angel! One of our favorite white dresses is the Mac Duggal style 6383N, which has a beautiful  fully sequined top and layered ruffles of chiffon on the skirt. The Sizzle by Coloriffics Inez high heals are a great way to add some extra glitter to the outfit!

    Earrings: Crystal Pear Drop Earrings J5613E1S

    Red Dress

    Red dresses are always a sexy choice. And for Halloween, where there's a white dress for an angel, there must also be a red dress for the devil. Turn this La Femme 18110 cocktail dress into a devil by adding horns and a tail.

    Dress: La Femme 18110

    Purse: Helen's Heart Style FP-7051

    Shoes: Touch Ups Prom Shoes Style Bev

    Pink Dress

    Pink is always a cute color to go with in a formal dress, especially if you love the classic princess look. And, all of us girls love feeling like princesses when we dress up, right? With this sparkly number from Sherri Hill (style 2308), actually become a princess for Halloween by adding a crown! Or, for another cute look, you can add bunny ears.

    Dress: Sherri Hill style 2308

    Homecoming 2012 hi-lo Dresses

    Since the end of last year, hi-low dresses have been trending worldwide.  These flirtatious frocks feature a circular hemline that hangs low in the back and high (usually above knee level) in the front.  Since this style allows your legs some freedom, it’s perfect for a day strolling around town or a night on the dance floor.

    Hi-lo dresses have become a popular summer trend for casual wear and have been spotted on celebs walking the red carpet at formal events.  The hi-lo skirt is so versatile it seems wearable for any occasion.  A simple hi-lo dress with a belt can be worn with sandals and a floppy beach hat for a glamorous summer look, while a frivolous version with a bit more flair can be paired with sexy stilettos for any formal event.

    If you’re a fan of the hi-lo dress trend, there’s no doubt you’ll need the best style this Fall.  In order to rock this look for Homecoming 2012, make sure you find the perfect fit for you.  If you want to show off a lot of leg, aim for a hi-low dress with a ruffled skirt, which will act like an elaborate frame as you strut your stuff.  Going for a simpler, more classic look?  Check out an A-Line hi-lo dress that hangs delicately from your body.

    When it comes to accessorizing your hi-lo dress for Homecoming it’s all about the shoes.  The raised hem at the front of dress means your shoes will definitely get noticed.  Make sure you pick a pair of high heels that fits you well and goes well with your dress.  Try to match the color of your hi-lo dress or find something complimentary.  Silver, black, or gold styles are usually a great choice, depending on the color of your gown.

    This Homecoming season hi-lo dresses will become the most sought after dresses.  It's always tough picking out a Homecoming dress, having to choose between Prom Styles and less formal cocktail dresses.  With a hi-lo dress, you get the best of both worlds, in a style that's formal and fun.  The unique trend is hard to find though, so if you’re looking for a hi-lo dress that will turn heads at Homecoming 2012, you’d better start looking now!
