Cocktail events are numerous for those with busy social lives. There are many types of parties that would qualify as cocktail parties and would require a cute or sexy, or elegant cocktail dress to fit in. Throughout the year you will be invited to new years parties, large birthday parties, bachelorette parties, Christmas parties, and other celebrations of sorts and you will need to find yourself dressed up in the latest fashions. Cocktail dresses can be long or short, any colour, style and price. Knowing the different styles, designers and most current fashion trends can be a lot to keep up on, which is why we try to help.
That Little Black Dress
Commonly, people think of a ‘little black dress’ when brainstorming for that perfect cocktail party dress because of its versatility. A simple black dress can be worn dressed up or dressed down depending on your jewelry, shoes, scarves, handbags, make-up and hairdo. If you are attending a cocktail party and you aren’t quite sure how much you should dress up, try a short, black dress and work with the accessories – you can always take some off if once you get there you feel you went over the top.
For the Love of Clothes and Dressing Up
If you were that little girl who loved dress up games and still, to this day, loves clothes and dressing up then you probably know a lot about this already. Cocktail dresses are great because you can wear them to almost any late afternoon or evening event, even some black tie events. Whether you are attending a wedding, a baptismal ceremony or bat mitzvah, or simply a night out on the town you can probably incorporate your favourite cocktail dress into the mix. I’m sure there are many girls out there with a similar love and flair for fashion the way Sarah Jessica Parker does on Sex in the City – her stylish and expensive wardrobe is filled to the brim with exotic and sexy dresses for the clubs, short dresses and bubble dresses adorned with fluffy feathers and flowers, backless dresses, vintage dresses and loads of designer dresses and New York dresses. Her capacity to pick out trendy dresses and adorable shoes is incredible and the envy of many who have ever watched her show.
