Illusion or sheer style dresses:
With a variety of tulle and silk translucent designs hitting the runways this season, the sheer fabric keeps on being more and more popular. The transparency of formal gowns has continuously grown into the red-carpet staples. The see-through factor can appear in a far more subtle and elegant way than you think. For example, an evening dress with a sheer panel at the front of its bodice, or with a plunging V neck, or with a lingerie style corset that is easy to wear and can bring you this dedicated evening-wear trend.
Dresses with puff sleeves:
The most fabulous dress trend of the 80s is back. Evening gowns and cocktail dresses with voluminous sleeves have been seen on every runway and become the most prominent trend this season. How about a fantastic formal dress with long puff sleeves made of sheer fabrics to reveal skin in the chicest manner and keep the look modest, but at the same time sexy.
Velvet evening gowns:
Without a doubt, a fabric of a dress plays an essential role in making its perfect fit. When it comes to a formal, luxurious and timeless look, velvet is always the first choice in designers’ mind. This year velvet is back with more sophisticated standards and cut-out details. We guarantee that it will continue being a significant trend in the future. It is excellent for all things formal and elegant, and it will provide you a liquid feel and flatter your figure.
Ruffled dresses, ruffled tops, and tiered skirt dresses:
Ravishing floor length ruffle dresses are retro-inspired. This most romantic trend shows the beauty of a dress from the 1950’s. A daring lightly cascading ruffles dress will bring you go-with-the-flow feeling, keep your look trendy and unabashedly feminine at the same time. This trend will fluff up your formal look.
3D flower dresses with romantic lace applique:
Floral details have always been in trend on the fashion stage. The flower motif is in the full bloom this season. Papilio new collection of formal dresses features beautiful floral details, from 3D cut spring flowers to beaded floral lace appliqués all over the dress. These delicate details can transform any formal gown into a masterpiece. Wearing an outfit offering this trend will give you a genuinely feminine and super romantic look.
Color trends for 2018/2019:
Papilio evening fashion collection is all about color trend vibes with two opposed directions. First one is a robust and vibrant palette and the second – light pastel hues.
Dresses in pastel colors:
As pretty as ice cream, innocent and gentle, sweet and delicate, soft pastel hues are expected to be a significant trend as they are frequently seen on the recent catwalks.
Lilac or lavender dresses:
Lavender was dominating the whole season. It has already shown up on the number of 2018 runways. Romantic yet elegant, consider these pretty colors for your next formal event.

This timeless color with the right accessories will help you to create a stunning look for your special night.
All white outfits:
