Most popular black ball gown styles are basically in the ball gown form. This includes styles like mermaid dresses, A-Line gowns, trumpet shaped gowns, laced gowns and so many others. The most popular color for such a dress is black, although any other color would work just as well if the gown was black on top. Lace is a popular choice for such dresses as well. Not only does it enhance the look of the dress but also it is very practical.
A black ball gown can be worn to almost any function. It can be a formal wedding, a cocktail party or even a casual get together with friends. You can really have fun with this type of attire. If you want to look like you are royalty for a night, try on an A-Line black ball gown with rhinestones and pearl accents on the bodice and sleeves.
A mermaid dress can also be worn with an A-Line black ball gown. A mermaid dress will look amazing on a formal wedding or reception. The dress starts to flare up at the knees with the skirt and extends till the floor. The bottom of the dress has some pleats that run across it. It ends with another flare that goes down till the hem.
A very classic form of this kind of apparel is the trumpet styled black ball gown. This style has been around for decades and it still looks great. The main difference is that the dress flares up in front and in the back; therefore, the hemline of the black ball gown may be a bit high whereas the trumpet style flared up in front.
Since this is a formal dress, you must make sure that you have all your make-up and hair pieces prepared. The gown is going to need a lot of careful attention especially when you wear a satin black. A black satin will show more skin than a white one and this will also be noticeable under closer scrutiny. Your hair should also be done professionally and your makeup applied so that everything matches with your dress.
In case you do not want to have a black ball gown but want to wear something elegant then you can opt for a black cocktail dress. This dress would go just as well if not better than a black ball gown. The reason behind this is that black does not appear too heavy and does not look like it will keep you weighed down. Therefore, you can have fun with any of these styles. For this dress to be classy you need to add accessories. You can wear an accessory with the hemline that has some ruffles and bows on it so that it stands out and catches attention.
