Trumpet: Glamourous 1940s movie stars come to mind in this style that hugs curves and then flares out at the bottom of the skirt in a trumpet shape. This silhouette is also labeled as mermaid by some designers.
A-Line: The straight lines of modern geometry inspired the classic A-line dress. It first came into fashion in the late 1950s and, as its name suggests, forms a triangular A shape with a narrow bodice and a wide skirt.
Ball Gowns: The full-skirted bridal gown swept into fashion with Queen Victoria's wedding in 1840 and remains the favorite romantic silhouette.
Empire: Youthful and elegant, the high-waisted empire dress came into fashion in 1800, just after the French Revolution. Napoleon's wife Josephine popularized the neoclassical style.
Sheath: The sheath was the style worn by Marilyn Monroe in the days when darts and seams -- instead of today's stretch fabrics -- were used to create a curvaceous silhouette.
