Whether you’re planning a girls night or celebrating an occasion with friends, a party dress is the perfect way to show off your personality and stand out from the crowd. From sparkly sequin dresses to dreamy velvet, this range of party dresses offers a variety of styles and designs to suit any taste and style. Party dresses can boost confidence and are also ideal for special occasions like proms, birthday parties, or black-tie events.
When it comes to cocktail party dresses, it’s best to keep the hemline above two inches above your knee, unless otherwise specified. The hemline shouldn’t be too long either, as this can quickly look sleazy and inappropriate. When in doubt, you can always ask the host what she thinks, or try to get clued up on the event’s theme or mood. It’s better to be slightly overdressed than under-dressed, though, so don’t feel afraid to go all out with your outfit choice.
The key to a successful cocktail party outfit is to choose a flattering fit that highlights your figure. A form-fitting midi dress is an excellent option that is both figure-friendly and glamorous, especially when it’s crafted from a rich fabric such as lace or velvet. This style can be worn with heels or flats, depending on the occasion and is versatile enough to be worn year-round.
For casual-themed parties, opt for a cotton skater dress or a chiffon midi with open back details for a touch of drama. Or, you could try a maxi dress with ruched detail and metallic finish for a hint of sparkle.
Those looking for a more formal option can turn to a midi dress adorned with florals and sequins for an elegant, evening-ready look. Alternatively, you could wear a fitted crepe dress that’s embellished with gold chainlink straps or rhinestone and pearl all-over accents for an on-trend party ensemble.
The colour of your dress can also set the mood for your party attire. Embrace bold hues such as hot pink, tangerine orange, or lime green for a girl’s night out. You can also go for a shimmering metallic dress that’s one of this season’s biggest trends.
For a high-shine party dress that will dazzle on the dance floor, look no further than Bottega Veneta’s white sequined midi with playful lilac lemons or 16Arlington’s feather-trimmed maxi — both of which are sure to have you sparkling across the room. Pair this sparkly sartorial centerpiece with a set of dainty diamond earrings and cocktail rings for an on-point finish. For a more elegant, professional ensemble, you can also opt for a silk crepe dress with shoulder pads and a plunging neckline. Complete your office-ready party dress with a sleek black bag and gleaming accessories.
