The sexiest crystal embellished bow dresses and shoes to wear this season
Area NYC dresses are giving me major clothing envy this season with all of their crystals and bows. I absolutely love the crystal embellished and crystal bow dresses which have been taking center stage thanks to Area and Mach & Mach. It was love at first sight when I saw AREA NYC’s open back crystal bow embellished dress on Jade Holland Cooper. It’s such an elegant but sexy, classic statement little black dress. Apparently everyone else thought so too as it’s sold out. The crystal bow trends been going for a couple of years now and looks set to stay for next season at least. Area NYC has some of the most stunning crystal bow and ribbon dresses and Mach and Mach’s cinderella style crystal ribbon shoes complete this glam, ultra feminine look perfectly.
The AREA NYC low back crystal bow dress I saw first is sold out but there’s still plenty of other gorgeous crystal embellished dress with feminine bow details to get your hands on. If you prefer the bow dress seen in Emily in Paris, you can find it here.

AREA NYC crystal embellished dresses & luxe for less alternatives
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know sparkly glam styles are my favorite. Which is why I always have so much fun putting event dress edits together. The crystal bow dresses and shoes that have been popping up this year are some of my favorite styles. Especially the ones by Area NYC. If you’re not sure when and where you’d wear it, go for a classic style outfit, bag or crystal bow earrings that won’t date as quickly. Or get your partner to take you out as these dresses and shoes deserve to be seen.
If you weren’t sure if bow dresses were going to be a major fashion trend or not, episode 3 of Emily in Paris Season 2 just put them firmly on the trend list.
Not all of these crystal embellished dresses have bows but they were too pretty to skip over. I’ve included lots of luxe for less styles in this edit as AREA NYC is quite an expensive designer brand. A lot of their crystal embellished and bow dresses are sold out too.
The last black satin mini dress with the statement bow and crystal embellishments is the one I’m wearing. It runs true to size except in the bust which runs small. So if you’re fuller chested size up, like I should have done.
Mach & Mach crystal bow shoes and alternatives
There’s some controversy of whether similar styles and dupes are good or not. I’m not endorsing copycats or exact dupes. However, if there’s a similar style that makes it affordable then I think you should be able to wear it and not be excluded because of a price tag. Mach & Mach crystal ribbon heels are beauties but if you’re looking for more affordable styles, I’ve got you covered.
