Charmeuse is a lightweight fabric woven with a satin weave. This luster fabric
can instantly give off an air of elegance and can dress up even the simplest of
outfits. However, charmeuse has also received a bad rap being that it is too

but in fact, it's perfect for evening dress too. Need some ideas? Below I've
picked out my favorite charmeuse
dresses from DressilyMe.com. Just

2. One Shoulder Charmeuse Dress
This curve-hugging dress will
leave the crowd breathless at your prom event. A single shoulder strap is topped

spaghetti straps. The neckline is the glorious start of a sheath silhouette
accented by embellishments ending at the flirty slit.

All you need to ensure a fabulous
night is this gown! Beaded shoulder straps with manmade diamonds and waistband

the plunging neckline is framed by delicate ruching.

fitted bodice, this charmeuse
evening dress has beaded halter neck and elegant pleats which make it a
