Cocktail/party dresses: trends
The little black number is the classic cocktail dress and is perfect for business events and informal parties. This season, however, the dresses have a bit of colour too. They mostly come in close-fitting cuts, at most knee length, with slightly flared skirt sections. The diverse colour palette ranges from exciting red to elegant nude and girly pastel tones.
What to wear with cocktail and party dresses
And how should you style cocktail and party dresses for maximum effect? Just like the perfect cocktail, cocktail dresses are also about getting the right ingredients. In this case it is about the shoes and the accessories. Ballerinas are perfect for a relaxed garden party. High heels should be your go-to for chicer events and glamorous restaurants. Sparkling jewellery and a stylish clutch give your dress glamour appeal.
Exclusive fashion tip
Cocktail dresses are the perfect choice for fancy weddings. But be careful when choosing the colour: black is generally a no-go for weddings. White and nude are also better to avoid because these colours are reserved for the bride. Other than that your fantasy need know no bounds – from a bandeau dress to a seductive strappy dress, nothing is off limits.
