The spangled dress is a recurring piece of clothing in the Dragon Quest series that first appeared in Dragon Quest VII. It is a fashionable dress designed for women and provides a high amount of protection.


The dress is a sleeveless ankle-length evening gown made out of a shimmery dark indigo material that gives it its name. It has high leg slits on both sides and is decorated with a fur collar at the top. Although it possesses no special features, it often has a high defence and style bonus for wearers.
