May Ball Dress Trends: Cocktail Style

Spotted: Georgia Toffolo

First on our list of the top May Ball dress trends of 2018 is the classic cocktail style. Whether your May Ball is a black tie affair or a bit more casual, this style will for sure suit both! A cocktail style is timeless and can be worn again and again, getting you the most for your spend. A recent trend to not only hit the runways but Faviana’s Spring 2018 Collection too is the off-the-shoulder detail. This subtle yet sexy feature makes the cocktail dress one you’ll want to keep in your closet for a lifetime. Pick up Faviana Style 8050 to make sure you are right on trend. You’ll want to create loose beach waves for the perfect hairstyle and add the most delicate necklace and earring set to top off the look.

May Ball Dress Trends: The Back

Everyone at your May Ball event will be doing a double take when you show up ever so elegant in Faviana Style 10014! The front is quite simple – it’s the back that really catches the eye. The criss-cross detailing shows off a toned back and allows for you to wear your hair in a classic updo to show it off, of course. Stick to minimal jewelry with this style since the back is the highlight. You’ll have everyone “talking behind your back” on your special night 😉

May Ball Dress Trends: Elegant Princess

Unless you were born into royalty, there aren’t too many times where you can dress up to resemble the princess you imagined you’d always be so, take advantage of May Ball and go all out! Faviana Style 10042 is a modern take on the princess gown of your dreams. It features the most delicate beading on top and an oh-so-fun chiffon a-line skirt you can twirl around all night in. This style is a two piece so it is right on trend for 2018. Style your hair in retro waves or throw it up in a chic top knot. You should definitely add some jewelry like silver bangles and a statement ring with this one!

May Ball Dress Trends: The Two-Piece

Speaking of two pieces, it’s another trend on our list of styles to rock at May Ball 2018! Faviana Style 10045 is the perfect combo of elegance and edge. It comes in so many deep hues like red, evergreen, and aubergine so you’ll be able to wear this style into the holiday season. Two-piece dresses are the perfect pick if you want to wear your dress over and over again. After May Ball you can mix and match each piece with things you already have in your closet like a classic pair of jeans or a crisp white t-shirt.

May Ball Dress Trends: Off-The-Shoulder

Off-the-shoulder has showed up twice already on our list of trending styles for May Ball 2018 so it must be a trend that’s not going anywhere anytime soon! This trend has become such a classic and so will Faviana Style S10001 in your closet. Off-the-shoulder is 2018’s staple wardrobe piece. You can style an off-the-shoulder dress in so many ways like stacking a bunch of bracelets with one dainty necklace or you can choose to wear many different length necklaces to show off the off-the-shoulder feature of this dress.
