In the world of high fashion, runway looks often veer toward fantasy—a designer's bold vision can seem like a collection of wearable art rather than pieces of clothing that are appropriate for work or play. We've turned to local and national image experts to find out exactly what styles are worth translating from the catwalks to real life, particularly those that can make a statement during gala season. From graphic prints to 1950s peplum frocks, these are the best (and most realistic) trends for the belles of the ball in Washington.
