Solutions to Tznius Eveningwear

This will be the first of a few posts I will publish on finding dresses for events and weddings etc. about finding or having made dresses that are both covered up and fabulous. It is really a big challenge to do eveningwear where you are draped in one color from head to toe and make it look not too dense or poofy. I have started to compile runway looks were a tznius solution is achieved.
Above: Thakoon, Dries Van Noten, and Ralph Lauren, all Fall '09 collections.
The elbow length sleeve is very in style right now. I think that the Dries dress with the engineered print in the center is so chic and interesting. I think that women should utilize interesting prints more often in eveningwear. It gives a certain unique quality and personality to a dress.
If you are having a dress made, don't think that you have to have a full skirt or a fitted sleeve or anything that people always do. Think about what looks good on you and what you love. It helps to look through photos on or other websites to find runway looks from which to be inspired. It helps that this season was so big on long sleeves and skirts!
