Do you ever watch old movies from the ‘50s and find yourself longing for the return of feminine glamour and ladylike grace? Well you’re in luck this season because there’s a much-anticipated return to feminine fashion—with peplums topping must-have list.
Peplum dresses give an illusion of a slimmer waistline, which in turn gives you that classic hourglass silhouette that’s making its triumphant return on the runway and real life!

While big, elaborate wedding gowns are awe-inspiring walking down the aisle, the reception dress, also known as the “cut-the-cake” dress, gives the bride a chance to let her hair down a bit. Going for a shorter, more relaxed dress will not only be more comfortable for the reception meet and greets, it’ll make it easier to have some fun with your guests on the dance floor! It is a celebration after all!
Below are some of our picks!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to party! In this season of what seems to be non-stop celebrations, a great party dress is definitely essential. Whether you opt for demure and ladylike or sparkly and vibrant, the right dress should definitely make an entrance.
Stylist’s Tip: Sequins, lace, pleats and mesh are all gorgeous details we love on party dresses. The problem is they tend to be very delicate, so great care must be taken in freshening them up. We love using the Rowenta Precision Valet Commercial Garment Steamer for de-wrinkling and even freshening up delicate dresses. It’s definitely a handy tool to have around! (A great bonus: You can use this handy tool all over the house, too—from your upholstery to drapes.)
