Madison James has blown us away this year with their top-notch, high-fashion designs! While we love all of the brighter colors, we are head over heels for Madison James’ black gowns. Black gowns are often looked over, but they should not be! There are so many details that can be added to a black gown to make it a show-stopper! Style 17-200 is the ultimate ball gown! This full layered look is adorned with fabulous silver beading that compliments the ruffled skirt perfectly. Our favorite thing about this dress is that it accentuates the waist line and really pulls it in to add to the fit of the gown. A dress like this is stunning on any body type, and we love that! 17-201 is a complete 180 from the previously mentioned, but it is just as gorgeous! It has a sleek mermaid fit, and is subtly adorned with beadwork and embroidery along the neckline, and down the sides. This is such a timeless look that will never go out of style! You can order this dress in black, royal, charcoal, or red, but we think the black might be our pick! If you are not sold on a mermaid or ball gown, maybe a gown with a straight skirt is more your speed. Style 18-615 is a fitted look, but it is not a mermaid, it is just straight. This gown is all about the details, the bodice is lace, while the skirt is sequinned. The vertical panels of sequins are very slimming, and accent the waistline well. The lace balances it out and adds a little more depth to the look. This style is available in black, ivory or navy. These are just a few of Madison James’ beautiful styles! There are so many to choose from, so get to searching and find yours! Happy Shopping!
