Astound the Crowd in the Perfect A-Line Stunner

The A-Lines have it! With the recognizable shape of the letter “A”, the A-Line dresses have an “A”mazing shape! These gowns are tightly fitted at the shoulders or bodice, making them form fitting for every body type. The lovely extension of the dress from the waist to the bottom with a nice flare gives them their “A” shape.  A-Line Dresses can come in any length, from short to long. Vintage 1960’s A-Line dresses were mini-length, worn with white GoGo boots. And guess what? Those mini-dresses are BACK! Knee length and tea length A-Line dresses have always been a fashion tradition in both casual and formal dresses. Long A-Line gowns with trains are a classic bridal and formal dress silhouette and are among the most popular and easily worn by everyone because this silhouette is so figure flattering.

Every Fabulous Fabric from Which to Choose

Fabrics chosen for A-Line dresses generally have a more substantive nature, which helps to define the silhouette from the waist to the flared bottom. Silk or polyester Taffeta has just enough stiffness to keep the flared shape of the skirt creating a glamorous Red Carpet look only achieved with this amazing structured fabric. Satin, with its luxurious shiny sheen, is frequently used for formal A-Line dresses as the color contour of the satin creates a playful vignette of tonality contrast from darks to light  in the billowing folds of the dress. Satin A-line dresses are dramatic and sexy. Other fabrics like moiré and shantung also define the formal elegance of A-Line dresses as they are also structured fabrics that keep the billowing effect of the lower skirt intact as you move. We are seeing A-Line dresses in new fabrics, such as embroidered and patterned heavy cottons for both informal and formal dresses. Rich velvets and brocades are the ultimate in formal fabrics for the classic A-Line dresses reminiscent of the Renaissance and Victorian eras.

Create A Flawless Silhouette in the Skirt Style of Your Choice with Our Filtering Options

While the silhouette is the same, fitted at the bodice, then flared to the bottom, the varying styles of the skirts give you many choices of A-Line dresses. Extending from the bodice, the skirts may be ruched, perhaps even in a pattern. You may see ruffled, pick up or tiered skirts. These skirt variations, with a flare but not the cupcake or ball gown fullness, would still be an A-Line dress shape. A plain skirt that is a continuation of the bodice line is probably the most common A-Line dress, sloping softly from the top through the waist to the bottom.  Additionally, many A-Line dresses have an extra layer of ruffles or tulle underneath the skirts to help keep the shape of the A-Line dresses pronounced. Without the extra petticoat layer, the more narrow A-Line dress is slightly less formal, yet just as shapely.

Give Us An “A+” - We Have the Ideal A-Line Dress for Every Shape & Size

The classic silhouette of A-Line dresses works well on almost every body type. For a petite figure, the body hugging bodice and the straight line of the A-Line dress helps to lengthen the torso and add the illusion of height. No disappearing among yards of fabric or looking overpowered by the gown! A-Line dresses gently embrace the athletic body, adding curviness at the bodice and the waistline for a more feminine look showcasing your curves. The fullness of the skirt disguises both the narrow and wide hips, leaving the A-Line silhouette as the lasting impression. For the plus size gals, be confident that the plus size A-Line dresses will flatter your curves without adding bulkiness in the most flattering way!

Every Length Flatters in A-Line

There can be short A-Line dresses, knee length A-Line dresses, tea length A-line dresses, and long A-Line dresses. Even if a dress is in a newly popular two piece style, as long as the shape is in that “A”, we classify it in this silhouette. Short A-Line dresses in sequins are super! In the “Little Black Dress” department, you’ll see many A-Lines in knee length for cocktail parties,  informal business events, and upscale social events. Tea length A-Line dresses seen in the 1950’s are beginning  to reappear and we love it! Two-piece dresses with the classic A-Line shape are no doubt the newest trend! Long A-Line dresses, either with or without a sweeping train are the most formal, and one of the most recognizable silhouettes.

A-Line dresses featuring fitted bodices and the classic, sloping  skirt in an “A” shape are indeed timeless in their shape and we love them all, from mini to long and from traditional to slim! There are so many style and feature variations within this silhouette category to choose from. Use the filtering tool to select some of the features you like the most.
