Wait a minute - the age old question springs up - what will you wear? Before you panic, check out these chic dresses that are versatile enough to wear to any cocktail party - or any night out with the girls! These hip dresses will have you looking your best effortlessly - and what more could any woman want?
A trendy yet still classic look is the Short Strapless Dress with Rosette Skirt Detail. This coral number has a satin bodice with a sweetheart bust and a ruched waist to help define and slim. The flattering A-line skirt is made out of chiffon and features chiffon rosettes covering the entire skirt. The back of the dress features a cute bow at the waist. This floral number brings forth the feeling of spring charm. The short dress hits midway above the knee, with a sheer chiffon layer falling about an inch beneath the skirt.
The Shimmering Satin Dress with Ruffled Shoulder offers a fast and easy way to feel glamorous. The fabric is a shimmer satin in either a jewel toned teal or a fierce red, and is eye catching enough on its own. This one shoulder dress has several other things working for it, however. Cascading down the shoulder is a series of romantic ruffles, which add a softer and gentler look to the shape. The lightweight design makes this dress perfect to dance the night away!
Another one shoulder option allows for an entirely different shape. Where the Shimmering Satin Dress was more closely fitting to the body and streamlined, the Short Crinkle Chiffon Dress with 3D Floral Detail is a loose and flowy option. This navy dress is a satin and chiffon mix. The empire bodice is pleated, leading up to the floral design that covers the one shoulder sleeve. The crinkle chiffon skirt lightens up the dress for a romantic and glamorous look. The dress hits above the knee with a sheer chiffon layer cascading just a little below it.
Those who prefer a more modest look will appreciate the Short Silky Dress with V-neck and Pleated Skirt. Bright "Lollipop" pink color updates this timeless design that flatters all figures. The bodice is a V-neck with ruching, and a lace bandeaux could be worn underneath for any women who prefer extra coverage. The empire waist has a back tie accent, which also helps to define the waist area. Spaghetti straps and a perfectly pleated skirt finish off the dress, adding to it a touch of Grecian charm. The dress hits just above the knee for an elegant approach.
For a classic look with a hint of surprise, look at the Illusion Halter with Charmeuse trim and Beading. A timeless look is made contemporary with the sheer illusion touches. This knee length dress is available in either red or black. Covering the sweetheart bodice is the illusion halter top, which ties around the neck. The empire waist is highlighted with charmeuse trim and a sparkling brooch.
The Sleeveless Mesh Sequin Skirt with Sash is great for both sophisticated cocktail parties and nights out with the girls. A black tank bodice provides sophisticated coverage, while adding ruching embellishments to the neckline to flatter the figure. The royal blue skirt meets the bodice via a blue ribbon sash at the waist that features a rosette in the front, and a bow in the back. A layer of black tulle adorned with silver sequins covers the royal blue skirt to add extra glamour and shine.
Another modest option that is perfect for any sophisticated event is the Tea-Length Dress with Ruffle Collar and Bow Detail. This black dress will be a go-to favorite, as it's perfect for nearly any situation. The jersey fabric of the bodice ensures comfort - and also helps to prevent wrinkles if you need to pack this dress for an overnight trip. A taffeta ruffle neckline accents the bodice, as well as tying in the lightweight taffeta skirt. A taffeta bow cinches in the waist to ensure that the dress flatters your figure perfectly.
The next time you go to a cocktail party, pick one of these hip dresses so that you look your best and are keeping up with the latest styles. Better yet, keep a couple in the closet for every emergency party situation! Whether your style is romantically chic, or the ever glamorous fashionista, these dresses will have you feeling sophisticated and stylish in an ease
