Long sleeves take fall outfits to the next level

Fall is a popular season for a number of events, whether it's a wedding, cocktail party, holiday work party or school dance. But some ladies have trouble deciding what to wear - after all, wouldn't it be chilly in sleeveless formal gowns and short wedding dresses? Fortunately, Jessica Biel showed up at a recent fall event with the perfect solution.

What was it? Long sleeves! Dresses with long sleeves are unexpected yet perfect for an autumn night or day when the breeze is truly making those leaves fall. Jessica arrived on the red carpet at Variety's Power of Women event in a ruffled dress with long sleeves and a black, green and blue printed design.

The deep V-neck and knee-length hem still allowed for plenty of skin to be flaunted, and the dress looked a lot cozier than what her fellow attendees were wearing. She accessorized perfectly with a blue velvet clutch, cap-toed stilettos and plenty of sparkly jewelry. She kept her long hair down and slightly wavy, which is an easy go-to look for any gal!

Ladies looking to be comfortable (and warm) at formal events this season would do well to steal Jessica's long sleeves idea!

Six types of dresses that every gal should own

If you're looking for cheap formal dresses to bulk up your wardrobe, you should find styles that are always flattering and can be worn for more than one occasion. Instead of picking formal dresses that are only appropriate for a certain type of event, consider these six types of dresses that you can wear almost anywhere.

1. LBD. No woman's closet is complete without a little black dress. Redbook Magazine recommends choosing one in a material that "moves" and doesn't wrinkle.

2. Floral print. Glamour Magazine suggests a ladylike floral dress for times when you want to feel girly and fashionable. 

3. Floor-length. They seem formal, but floor-length dresses in solid colors can be casual depending on how you accessorize them.

4. Cocktail. Redbook suggests a colorful cocktail dress with details that flatter your figure, whether it's a peplum shape, empire waist or wrap dress.

5. Club. A club dress should be as bold and sparkly as you dare to be. It should also hug your curves and make you feel sexy.

6. Sheath. A simple sheath dress is easy to wear. Accessorize with a blazer or sparkly cardigan and you've got yourself a go-to outfit.

Red hot dresses are in for the fall season

If you're looking to stand out at a homecoming dance or other seasonal event this fall (and who isn't?), you might want to consider red formal dresses. Warm colors like red, coral, orange and yellow are perfect for the autumn months, and they're likely to grab you plenty of attention. Need an example of how you should accessorize a red dress? Penelope Cruz has the answer!

InStyle Magazine reports that the actress showed up to the premiere of Twice Born at the San Sebastian International Film Festival wearing a gorgeous vintage Versace design. The strapless red dress had a pleated wrap detail that created a sexy slit up the front. She accessorized with a red and gold clutch and fabulous red satin platform sandals with ankle straps.

To keep all eyes on her dress, she skipped flashy jewelry, keeping it simple with a pair of stud earrings and a ring. She painted her toenails red to match the outfit and went low-key yet glamorous with her hair, parting it deep on the side and gathering it over one shoulder.

If you're looking for cheap formal dresses, a monochromatic red ensemble is the perfect pick for fall. You might even want to add red lipstick to go the extra mile!

Looking for the perfect fall dress color? Try yellow!

There are many events that take place during autumn that require formal dresses, and what better way to give a nod to the season of foliage than by matching your gown to the hues of those leaves? Yellow is one particularly pretty choice, and it was a popular color at the recent 2012 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, California.

Three notable actresses walked the red carpet in golden gowns, including the baby-bump-carrying Claire Danes, redheaded Julianne Moore and petite Julie Bowen. All three pulled off the look perfectly, choosing fits and accessories that flattered their figures.

Claire chose a loose, flowing gown with no straps and an empire waist that highlighted her growing belly, accessorizing with gold sandals and gold bangles on her wrist. Julianne wore a long-sleeved dress with an A-line skirt, adding on a diamond-encrusted cuff. Her red hair and red lipstick popped against the yellow backdrop. Julie wowed in a bright, strapless mermaid-shaped gown with ruching on the skirt, dangling earrings and a gold box clutch.

When you're choosing between cheap formal dresses, consider a stand-out yellow design that's paired with gold accessories. You'll be the star of the event!
