The color palette for this year’s sexy formal dresses draws inspiration from the richness of nature’s hues. Dark green, dusty rose, deep blue, mauve/purple, and scarlet red are the colors you should be looking out for as the trendsetters of this season.

The style trend coming in is the sleek minimal silhouette as it defines the essence of sexiness, featuring sheer fabric details and cutouts, asymmetrical necklines, and sleeve details.

Accessory Trends

Accessorize these sexy short formal dresses with long gloves extending past the elbow adding a touch of elegance. Statement boots and mid-calf socks add a playful yet attention-drawing vibe to complete the overall look.

You may also channel your inner Parisian with berets and statement earrings to add glamor, letting the pieces complement your overall sensual appeal.

Makeup Trends

Latte makeup which features warm brown tones like salted caramel and cinnamon, as well as cool-tone eye palettes in gray blues and silvers help create mesmerizing looks in this season. On top of that, vampy lips or two-toned lip combinations, in addition to bold, dramatic lashes that frame the eyes will help complete and enhance your makeup look.

For those who are looking to take things to the next level, indulge in goth glam featuring dark smoky eyes and lips with graphic liners. The metallic shine in gold, bronze, rose gold, or platinum just adds an extra dimension to your overall look. 

In the 23/24 season, redefine elegance and sensuality with sexy formal dresses and captivating makeup trends that project confidence.
