Empire style evening dresses are characterized by a high waist and a full length skirt. The waist, which fits snugging, is fashioned above the waistline of the wearer, usually just under the bust line. This placement is appropriate for those who wish to achieve a slimmer and taller appearance.
The high slit dress are the very traditional but also chic, floor length formal gowns with which so many women fall in love. The design of these historically inspired evening dresses is sweetheart or v-neck. They additionally feature a flowing skirt which tappers out steadily from the waist to the hemline to create a elegant appearance.
