Womens Cocktail Dresses

By , March 26, 2010 3:09 am

Women’s cocktail dresses are probably among the more easier dress type to shop for, simply because they come in an endless array of shapes and sizes and can suit almost any special occasion. A well chosen cocktail dress can be a versatile piece that will serve you well for many occasions to come, whether its a wedding, formal, social…., or romantic night on the town with a very special someone.

The LBD (Little Black Dress) is probably the most versatile dress staple you own in your closet. This piece will definitely serve you well as its classic and simplistic look leaves a blank canvas for dressing up or down, and accessorizing.

There is a cocktail dress out there for all women, regardless of your body shape or personal preferences. Perhaps you’re not entirely sure when and where wearing a cocktail dress is appropriate and suitable for which occasions? Basically, black tie, black tie optional, cocktail attire, semi-formal, after five party or evening wedding would all call for women to wear this type of dress.

A cocktail dress is usually short (knee length or tea length) and never full formal length (sweeping the floor with your hemline!). A dress that is fitted well around the bust, shoulders and waist will flatter any body type, while a more flowing skirt gives an hourglass silohuette and covers over and bumps and bulges in the lower thigh regions! The knee length or tea length style of a cocktail dress also lets women show off one of their more favored areas – their calves. Couple this length with a stunning pair of heels for legs that go for days! Capped shoulders will also help to balance out a pear shaped figure and draw eyes upward to your face. Or try a halter style to show off toned upper arms and shoulders!

Remember too that women will wear different cocktail dresses depending on the weather. Don’t get frozen out or overheated in the wrong dress. For a summer ‘do, choose a lightweight, breathable fabric to keep you cool and comfortable. For a chilly winter evening reception remember to rbing along a wrap to cover up exposed arms and shoulders.

We love that with cocktail dresses, the colors, shapes and styles are almost endless, so have fun and try something new for your next party or special occasion! We also love that you can look fabulous without breaking the bank:

The Little Black Dress: A Timeless Cocktail Classic

By , January 21, 2010 5:07 am

The Little Black Dress (LBD) is the definition of the party dress, cocktail dress or evening dress all rolled into one. A must-have fashion staple in every woman’s wardrobe, the LBD is perhaps the most popular and universally flattering dress in modern history.

A black cocktail dress is usually a short skirt style with a simple cut. The plain and simple neutral quality of black makes this dress the most long-lasting and versatile piece of evening wear in any woman’s closet while screaming traditional elegance, regardless of the occasion.

The Little Black Dress has been a hit right since CoCo Chanel introduced us to it in 1926, and it’s since been labeled the ‘Ford’ of the fashion world (and instant and timeless hit, like the Ford Model-T , although much more fun in our opinion!)

The color and nature of the LBD make it easy to dress up or down depending on the occasion. Dress up yours with diamond accessories, stilettos and long gloves or tone it down in the daytime with shorter heels and a black business jacket. A black cocktail dress will also easily flatter women of all age groups, shapes and sizes. This dress is chic as well as functional, and is available in a range of sizes, from maternity to plus size or junior.

How can we think of the LBD and not be reminded of our favorite first lady of film Audrey Hepburn in her timeless classic dress and string of pearls in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, or her chic Givenchy LBD in Sabrina!

The greatest thing about a black cocktail dress? It’s always in style! Classic styles and cuts such as strapless, halter, off one shoulder, pencil cut, bubble, shift, vintage, you name it…there’s a dress to flatter your body type. Black is naturally a slimming color, so it’s the all-time favorite and safe choice of most women worldwide. A black cocktail dress is like a blank canvas just waiting to be styled to your personal taste. You can also shorten or lengthen the hem to suit the changing seasons.

Having at least one black cocktail dress in your closet is a definite must for every female!

A black cocktail dress basically consists of any semi-formal dress that sits above the knee or at tea-length (hemmed at the shin.) A black dress to the ankle would be a formal gown and not suitable for a cocktail party or semi-formal occasion. Finding the right black cocktail dress for you need not cost a lot of money. Plus, the enduring quality of this dress makes it a solid investment in your wardrobe for years to come.

Remember: the simpler the dress the longer it will last in the closet and the more it can be worn and enjoyed! So rather than choosing a ultra-trendy or complicated style, try a classic cut instead, and dress it up with accessories that can be easily changed to keep the dress adaptable for special occasions and parties to come. Jewelry, wraps, scarves, gloves and more can be interchanged to spice up your LBD without breaking the bank. These accessories, along with a versatile pair of heels will ensure you’re ready for pretty much any party or special occasion.

So no matter what your event, get there in style in the classic and simple sophistication of a black cocktail dress!
