GMD’s Dress Code Guide

Be the Belle of the Ball


With the festive season approaching it means that it is time to start looking for the perfect winter ball gown! We have brought together some of the best ball gowns to help you decide on the perfect dress for you.

If your attending a black tie theme, or prefer the classic black dress, then the Scarlet  gown might be the one for you. With the luxurious sheen of the fabric and the cross back detailing, this gown is not to be underestimated. The layered fishtail gives the gown a fun edge, and allows the perfect ease of movement to dance the night away.

Add some colour to your evening. Wear this Badgley Mishka Ombre burst gown with confidence, knowing that you look dressed for the occasion. This one shouldered beauty has lovely red crystal detailing on the shoulder. Show it off by wearing your hair to one side or treating yourself to an up-do perhaps? The side split in the skirt reveals decadent layers of fabric which feature hues from pink to red. Honestly, if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd we recommend you try this one on.

Snow ball? Snow problem. The Blake dress from Diva Sophia is a show stopper. This floor length dress has a gorgeous semi sheer skirt and a hand beaded embellished bodice.  Accessorize the dress with some statement heels and a designer clutch.

Honor Gold Lola Dress – The Kinks sang about Lola drinking champagne and dancing all night, and we reckon that this red dress is called Lola for that very reason; head straight for the dance floor on a night out. The three quarter length sleeves add a fun flirty element to the red dress, while the lace oozes sex appeal.

Buyer’s Birthday Dresses

Greetings GMD Blog Readers! Buying Assistant Sophie writing today. My birthday is coming up at the beginning of November and I need a dress. The most important factors about the dress:

1. Let’s start with the obvious: my party’s at night so I need an evening dress!

2. I’m not going to lie, I want my friends to be jealous and what better way to do that than with a designer evening dress.

3. The weather’s getting cold so a dress with sleeves sounds like a good option.

4. I’m starting the night in a restaurant with my family so need a ‘family-friendly’ dinner dress.

5. Straight after dinner I’ll be meeting friends in London’s West End where we’ll dance the night away: hello party dress!

There are so many to choose from but I said to myself that I should aim for a top three. Having looked at the evening dresses online in the ‘It’s My Birthday’ collection, and after some debate in the office I gave the list I made to our fabulous styling team who helped me pick The Top Three. You can message them directly at: enquiries@girlmeetsdress.com Over the next few weeks, as the big day draws closer, I’ll be revealing the contenders. Here’s the first one!

I fell in love with the Valerie Junifer dress the moment I saw it, there was a lot of oohing and aahing! It is incredibly flattering. The sequins will shimmer as the dancing gets under way in the club, and the construction of the sleeves mean that I won’t get too hot. I’ll have the option of wearing tights with it during dinner and then as soon as I’m with my friends I can whip them off. This dress has started some serious competition, the other contenders better watch out!
