Cappuccino Royale

Cappuccino Royale, a stunning Smooth Standard gown in shades of rich and luxurious browns. To begin, the top portion of the dress looks similar to a wrap dress, with two different types of fabric overlapping. A golden tan fabric with gentle gathers overlaps a smooth cappuccino brown fabric. Both the front and back of the dress has a v-neckline.  The dress is sleeveless, with an invisible zipper down the center back. Next, the skirt transitions into a lustrous satin-like fabric in a cappuccino brown. The skirt features several scarves elegantly cascading down the dress. Furthermore, the skirt is several layers, with a gold horsehair hem adding dramatic volume from the layers underneath. Lastly, the dress has built-in bra cups and a bodysuit.

The breathtaking embellishments on this dress add to the rich and luxurious feel. Firstly, crystal accents sparkle on the bodice of the dress. The golden side of the dress has lighter color crystals in AB, silver, and tan to name a few. The rich brown side features darker crystals such as Mocha brown. They outline the neckline, and emphasize the wrap detail. Similarly, the sparkle at the seam where the skirt begins, and gently scatters on the beginning of the skirt. Secondly, large sequins glitter in combination with the crystals in gold and brown. Accessories including detachable floats are included with this Smooth Standard gown.

Cappuccino Royale shows layering as we know it, except more upscale, more glamorous, and more sophisticated. At the Emmy Awards, Michelle Dockery wore a delightful Oscar de la Renta gown that plays up the trend with its black piping and cascading layers of ivory. Translating the layering trend to reinvigorate your ball gown repertoire means finding looks with added fabric trimmings, playing with sheer overlays, and insinuating volume with endless ripples of fabric.
