  • Jenny Yoo

    Love an open back moment. Especially when it's a bit of a surprise on an understated dress that is just plain pretty, with its flattering v-neck and flutter sleeve. Don't be afraid to show your shape! Sizes 0 to 26. (Comes in other jewel tones.) Buy from Anthropologie.

  • Maggy London

    Maggy London Plus Size Illusion Mid Calf Dress

    $168

    The wow-factor of a strapless dress; the comfort of a long sleeve, in a silhouette designed to flatter every curve. The back "V" is nice touch and we love the midi-length. Sizes 14-24. Buy from Maggy London.

  • Mac Duggal

    Sequin Long Sleeve Cocktail Dress

    $358

    Who says Navy is boring? Not us and especially when it comes to this Mac Duggal number. We love how it hugs in all the right places and sparkles just right for an elegant and fun look.

  • Mac Duggal

    Mac Duggal Beaded Long Sleeve Midi Dress

    $598

    This beaded dazzler will take you from church to ballroom gala. You're covered, but not "too" covered, thanks to the illusion lace; you're fancy, thanks to the beading, but not over-the-top, due to the tasteful midi length. Sizes 2-18. Buy from Mac Duggal.

  • Adrianna Papell

    Long Sleeve Crepe Dress with Tuxedo Collar

    $139

    Men aren't the only ones who can rock a tux. This feminine twist on the tuxedo in knit crepe with satin accents is perfect for the minimalist mom. Hits just above the knee. Comes in black and ivory, but you know better than to wear white unless you’re the bride. Sizes 0-20.
