Find Your Cocktail Dress Style
Long & Elegant
If you want something more sophisticated and mature, a long and elegant dress is the way to go. This is perfect for events where you are expected to be a bit more formal, or those in the winter where the air is chilly and you want to cover up more. Long dresses come in various colours, patterns and styles. A floaty style really gives off an elegant vibe, having the material draped around you and watching how it moves as you walk across the room. It is a definite crowd pleaser and can come in various colours and styles to suit you perfectly.
Short & Flirty
If you prefer short dresses, there are various styles of short cocktail dresses for you to choose from. Whether you prefer a dress that falls above the knee, or one with a midi skirt, there is a short dress out there for everybody. Short dresses are particularly perfect for summer events when the sun is out, offering a cooler breeze and less chance of getting overheated in your gorgeous dress.
Structured & Sophisticated
Whether you go for a short or long dress, there is always the option to go for something structured and sophisticated. This can mean tight to fit to your body, or more of a boxy blazer style, it really depends on you personally. If you want something to look sleek and put together, choosing something well structured and fitted is the way to go. With this style of dress it is important to consider alterations to ensure that the dress fits you perfectly so you’re ready to go.
Bright & Bold
If you love to walk into a room and immediately stand out, go for a colourful cocktail dress. Having a bold coloured dress makes a statement as soon as you walk into the room. Let the dress do the talking for you by choosing a colour that perfectly matches your style and how you want to come across on the night. Red is always a fantastic colour to go for, though if you want something unique choose a colour you wouldn’t expect other people to wear to the event.
