Ruched dresses are all about highlighting your best features in a beautiful and flattering manner. Featuring gathered fabric on elements of the dress, a ruched design adds texture and looks simply elegant. Jovani has a selection of ruched pieces, each using this technique to add a different twist on a classic style. If you're looking to highlight your slim waist, look for a ruched waist dress, while you can also find designs with ruched elements on the sleeves, bodice or skirt. There are so many ways to wear this look, and it's suitable for a formal event such as prom or a relaxed cocktail party too.

Choose a knee length ruched dress with a sweetheart neckline to create a sexy and sophisticated style for any formal event - just add a statement necklace. A ruched design will often highlight your natural waist and is a great choice for any event. You'll also find many neckline, color and fabric options, so you'll easily find the perfect look for any formal special occasion.
