The multitude of evening dresses in the market today can be confusing, especially from all the choice there is on the Internet. When it comes to evening wear, the event is the biggest thing to consider. If you know just how formal the occasion is you have done half your homework. Traditionally, long ball gown dresses serve the purpose of a formal night, such as a wedding, whereas evening cocktail dresses are best left for date night or a night out on the town with friends. Lately, gowns are being chosen by trendy women for cocktail parties too.

Young women want to get that Cinderella feeling at a wedding or birthday party by getting dolled up, twirling in front of the mirror all excited, as if it's prom night. Look like a fairy and choose a color according to your body shape. Avoid trying to copy your best friend who may look elegant in the same dress because your body type and personality may be totally different from her.

Now, you don't have to go to your friend's wedding in a black bridesmaid dress to look slim and attractive; opt for a colorful bridal gown with a draped shoulder, embroidery and beading incorporated in it to add charm and elegance.

Most women stay away from gowns because they think they don't have the "figure" to carry them gracefully.

These floor length dresses are made from fabrics that neither hug hips nor the waist with A-line silhouettes. They highlight the neck, shoulders, arms and back, so don't fret, you don't need to be skinny, thin or a size zero to look sophisticated. If you are shopping for Indo-Western bridesmaids dresses in pretty pastel shades which compliment dusky and fair skin tones alike, experiment with trendy colors, like blues, cyan, corals, burgundy and fuchsia.

Celebs like Aishwarya, Madhuri, Deepika and Kajol are opting to don elegant evening gowns over the traditional salwar kameez for their universal appeal with a unique ethnic touch.

If you are a fashionista, chances are you will want to look different and follow fashion trends of women you admire or those in the limelight. Bollywood and Hollywood stars have long been inspirations for women globally.

Bollywood stars have evolved their styles over the years by trying it all and are established fashion trendsetters for Indian women worldwide. Today, Indian actresses are global fashion icons too.

So look out for that gorgeous gown on the red carpet that your favourite celebrity is wearing this Awards season 2016. Feel like a fashionista draped in affordable evening gowns available at Simaaya Fashions online store with shipping worldwide.
