Column Dresses For A Graceful Entrance

There’s nothing like stepping out in column dresses and feeling truly elegant from head to toe. It’s a classic silhouette that never goes out of style. Depending on the length and cut, it also works for many different occasions. Perhaps you’re styling yourself for a gala event or you plan on stepping into the office in style. Whatever your need is for a beautiful column dress, our chic edit is sure to inspire.


Striking Column Dresses

Column dresses are certainly at home on the red carpet but many designs are befitting of other occasions too. One particularly striking example is the crochet lace midaxi dress by Chi Chi London. Its striking red lace construction is reason enough to fall head over heels for this amazing dress. Additionally, it offers a classic round neckline, charming fishtail hem and a flattering ribbon tie waist. Style this with heeled sandals from weddings to romantic dinner dates.


Another stunning column design comes in the form of Gucci’s houndstooth wool-blend dress. This dress is undeniably chic with black trim featured on the neckline, cuffs, waist and bodice. Additionally, faux pockets are featured and adorned with reflective gold buttons lifting its all black and white design. To finish, this dress comes with a stylish, detachable shoulder cape.


Chic Style From Head To Toe

The nature of column dresses is to skim your curves and create a statuesque silhouette for the wearer. Nothing screams elegance like an expertly crafted evening dress with a column silhouette. Take note of the Jamie scoop neck maxi dress by Rebecca De Ravenel. This eye-catching teal-blue dress comes from the celebrated designers A/W19 ready to wear collection. It’s ideal for the season ahead with its wool-crepe construction, chic boat neckline and long sleeves. It also features a seductive thigh-high split and scoop back which add greatly to its captivating design. Metallic heels will complement this stunning gown perfectly.


In contrast, we highly recommend the Jayla silk-tulle maxi dress by Maria Lucia Hohan. This Grecian style gown offers a draped, crystal-embellished bodice with adjustable gathered straps. It also features a low back with further adornments. Additionally, this dress has a seamed waistline which defines the figure and gives way to the stunning pleated skirt. You’ll be the talk of the evening in this glamorous creation.
