5 Magical Cocktail Dresses & How To Style Them
You’ve been working 9-5 all week (sometimes even working over time!) and just when you feel like running away from all responsibilities, you hear the one word we all look forward to every week: Friday. Whether it’s out for a quick drink with your girlfriends or a romantic dinner with your beau, we all need a little pick-me-up every now and then, and what better way to celebrate it than in a sizzling cocktail dress?
The Sheer Dress
Sheer cocktail dresses are the ultimate balance for when you don’t want to show too much skin, but still want to look sexy. Because they’re made of light materials, you might want to bring an extra pair of coat or sleek kimono in case it gets chilly. Pair with killer stilettos for that extra oomph! Oh, and a little bonus tip: do wear the right inner-wear because you know, it being see-through and all. You get the idea.
The Bodycon Dress
A lot of us avoid the bodycon dress because we all have this idea that it’s only for the slim or someone with 0% fat. Such is not the case, ladies! Wear a bodycon cocktail dress no matter what size you are! Pair with classic black heels to complete the look. Minimise your accessories if your dress comes with a lot of detail. Let it speak for itself!
The Printed Dress
Florals, aztec, colour block… printed cocktail dresses are fantastic for those last minute events where your friends are dragging you to a party and they’re not taking no for an answer. Printed pieces look great on their own, and don’t require any additional styling. A simple hair-do and low-heels should do the trick!
The Little Black Dress
You can’t possibly think we left this one out, did ya? Leave no classics behind! LBDs, short for little black dress (I’m sure you know this by now), are so versatile and effortless that it’s branded the must-have outfit in every woman’s closet. LBDs and nude pumps go hand-in-hand, but you can occasionally swap it with some bright heels. You can bring along a matching clutch too!
The Sequin Dress
“All that glitters is not gold,” says the person that has NEVER worn a sequin dress before. Jokes aside, sequin dresses are reserved for that fancy event that finally is coming along, and you want to go all out for! Wear with mules and a little purse that you can sling over your shoulders. If you can, do avoid anything else that shines or glitters. Other than that, be prepared to be the centre of attention!
