Short Formal Dresses - From Fun & Flirty to Sultry & Sophisticated - We have Your Perfect Dress!

Short formal dresses are for everyone! With so many styles of short dresses, you’re sure to find several that you love! The great thing about short dresses is that you can choose one for every event you have! It’s always good to have several fancy short formal dresses in your wardrobe.  Short dresses are perfect for a fancy dinner, a cocktail party, a night on the town, a dance, or an upscale date night.  At Christellas, we carry the entire range of short dresses, from super short ballerina poofy dresses, short dresses that are sleek and fitted, above the knee short dresses and even the longer “Marilyn Monroe” length that comes to the knees! Christellas has short dresses for informal parties and events as well as more formal occasions and dances. Whatever the length and style you prefer for your special occasion, we have it!

Every Fabulous Fabric and Style Imaginable From Which to Choose!

For fun informal events, choose short dresses in chiffon with lovely accents like swirls and satin. Simple ruching on the sweetheart neckline of a chiffon flowy short dress adds just the right touch to make your dress something special. Add a sparkly belt and rhinestone earrings to dress it up even more! Twirling and dancing calls for flowy chiffon fabric that moves as nicely as you do! Two layers, multiple layers, ruffled layers…chiffon skirts come in many variations on short dresses that let you choose your style! Simply styled or all blinged out, this fabric makes you feel like dancing! Chiffon is the perfect fabric for wedding related events and warm weather or outside venues due to the lightweight and breezy nature of the fabric. If comfort is on your agenda, you can’t go wrong with chiffon.

We love lace, too! Lace short dresses or those with lace accents crossover from casual to formal beautifully! Lace combined with sheer illusion cutouts is delicately revealing.  Short dresses with lace AND sparkles really make us smile! The lace is lovely in the daylight and then at night, the sparkles stand out, too! Lace conveys a sense of romance and is at the top of the popularity charts this season! We particularly like the lace style featuring a different color sheath underneath so the dress appears almost two-tone. This special lace treatment looks outstanding with black, white or cream lace over nude or soft pink. All the color combinations that we have seen in this years collection are fabulous. If your event is themed or you want to match your dress to the color theme, this is a creative way to have a look all your own while complimenting the colors of the night.

More formal parties and events call for even MORE SPARKLES! Our short dresses come with all kinds of sparkly accents! Rhinestone accents on chiffon short dresses can be tastefully tiny or all out BLING! Multicolored Aurora Borealis Crystals, also known as AB stones,  make short dresses shine, sparkle, shimmer! Match your earrings and a bracelet to the type of crystal or rhinestones coloration for a perfectly put together look. If your short dress is super fancy, typically a pair of heels that are more subdued will be the ideal pairing, so as not to detract attention from your fancy dress.

Short dresses with layers of tulle give you that ballerina-in-a-tutu look that shows off your legs, especially with high heels. We carry short formal dresses with straps, full tops, and even sheer illusion. A fitted or corset bodice might have lace or lots of bling.  Tulle skirts with layers of ruffles and tulle skirts with lettuce edge ruffles both give your short dress that fun poofy look. The combination of a waist hugging bodice and full gathered skirt makes this kind of short dress stand out as a true “Party Dress”!

Fitted bodices with chiffon skirts are a softer variation on the ballerina tutu theme and we love this style, too! We have lots of short dresses that fit close to the body on top then have variations of skirts. Bodices  in satin or chiffon, with rhinestones, sequins or crystals are all popular styles. Chiffon skirts, feather skirts, and ribbon edged tulle all look amazing with the fitted bodices and have an extra special style detail that will keep you in front of the camera for the night!

For a more sophisticated event, look at our short dresses in sleek fabrics and elegant styles. Stretch jersey is amazing for hugging your body and showing all your curves! Stretch jersey is also a fabric that has great “all day wearability.” If your special occasion is an all day affair, there is no better fabric to wear than jersey knit for comfort, stretchability and ease. You can truly dance the night away in stretch jersey! Reminiscent of the days of mini-skirts, these short dresses turn heads wherever you go! At Christellas, we carry a variety of styles and colors in these slinky sexy fabrics. In addition to the “Little Black Dress”,  we have short dresses in every color! Be flaming hot in RED, cool and sophisticated in ELECTRIC BLUE, or glowing in NEON!

For the most fun, look at our collection of short dresses with full sequins, crystals and beading. Here you will find the short dresses that sparkle and shine the MOST! We carry strapless short dresses as well as those with bejeweled straps. Some sequin and beaded short dresses are in above-the-knee length and others are mini-skirt length - you choose! We greatly appreciate the artistry of our exquisitely hand crafted short dresses. Some of our dresses have sequin or beading patterns that are subtle tone on tone which feature beading patterns that are centuries old. Other patterns create art deco and Gatsby styling from the turn of the century. Others styles are nothing short of luxurious with their intricate designs from far off places. All are sure to make you feel as if you are modeling a work of art!
