Dresses with Grecian-inspired draping and soft, elegant gathers were a big hit on the Fall/Winter 2008 runways. Even hotter was the one-shoulder style that appeared on many of these pretty and feminine gowns. For an elegant and classic look, try a 40s-inspired frock with chic shrug sleeves – Bianca Nygard has a fantastic one. If you are looking for something edgier, go for a dress with a modern, minimalistic feel; use the structured, architectural frocks seen at Balenciaga as your guide. For extra style points, add an eye-catching statement necklace and sky-high heels.
