Boat Necklines

The straight sheath dress, harking back to the 1950s, is a hot autumn evening party dress choice. Necklines are primarily boat shaped, but sometimes can be square cut with wide or narrow straps or strapless bandeaus. These three evening party dresses have more tulip volume from the waistline and taper to a narrow hemline.

The plainer silhouette is used to show lush fabrics including satins, lace overlays, flocked fabrics and brocades to advantage. These evening party dresses and shown in the thumbnails above, are from left to right, the Christmas ranges of House of Fraser, Wallis, and Marks and Spencer. Images of these ladies party dresses are courtesy of the respective companies are available later in autumn.
