Cocktail parties are a great way to meet people and make new friends. There is no need to splurge a fortune on buying an expensive dress as with a little imagination, you can find the right outfit at a fraction of what you would normally spend. While a cocktail party demands that you add a bit of glamour to your outfit, you shouldn’t choose a dress that is very exposing. Below are some great cocktail party outfit ideas which will come in handy when you decide to go out next.
Selecting the right dress
You should ideally go for a dress that is slightly above the knee or just below it. It shouldn’t be too flashy but colourful and elegant. Alternately, you can also try gowns that are up to ankle length. Choose colours that will go well with your skin tone. As a general rule, dark colours are traditionally used for sombre occasions. However, if you are unsure of the right colour, it is always best to go with black as it suits all occasions and looks very chic. Rompers are also in fashion and work well because they are neither too casual nor too formal. If you are in the mood to try something different, rompers are generally a good idea. Harem pants with matching tops can also be a good choice if you are in the mood to try out something bold that stands out. Avoid wearing flashy knee length boots as they won’t look good. A kimono style simple dress can also work well and you can match it up with colourful accessories to get a gorgeous look. Even though tights have often been used to help you during winter and work well with black short dresses, it is always best to give it a skip as they tend to look a bit too casual.
Selecting the right fabric
Choose a fabric according to the season. For summers, silk is a good option while wool works well for winters. Red also looks very chic and goes well with green, so you could match it with a green accessory such as a purse. Floral prints also work well for every occasion but try to go for lighter colours. The print shouldn’t be too flashy or too big and you can match it up with heels.
It is always a good idea to match your dress with some accessories. You can try shiny bracelets or earrings. If you decide to wear a necklace, it should be something that enhances your neckline but doesn’t overshadow it. Don’t use a large handbag but go for something that is small and inconspicuous. The basic idea is that the focus should be on your dress and not on the accessory.
You can try stilettos that match with the colour of your dress. Simple sandals also look good. The footwear shouldn’t be too shiny and since you will be spending a lot of time in it, it should be comfortable.
