In today’s post, I am going to talk about cocktail party outfit ideas to try this year. No matter what’s on the upcoming special occasion we are going to attend, believe me, there will always be stunning outfit ideas to try. In this article, I gathered cocktail party looks featuring formal and less-formal ensembles. There is one very important rule to follow: try to keep the spirit of the event, by wearing something special. Keep on reading to see more styling tips and ideas.
Most of the cocktail parties have relatively formal dress codes, that’s why you should avoid wearing casual outfits. Sure, every cocktail party has its own level of formality regarding guests looks. If the upcoming party is a kind of charity event, then you better keep things more dressy. If the upcoming event is less formal, then you should still wear something dressy and feminine, like blouse and skirt combination. Traditionally, ladies wear mid-thigh or knee-length classic dresses to cocktail parties, but you can go for something original, like mini, maxi or halter frock. Avoid wearing too casual fabrics, like denim, jersey or chinos. I recommend sticking to crepe, satin, chiffon and high-quality cotton. If you want to underline your individuality, then how about wearing tulle or ballerina skirts styled with classic shirts, fitted cashmere sweaters or turtlenecks. If you want to make things look original and sexy, then I recommend to try on mini dresses with sultry cut-outs, backless, asymmetrical necklines, lace details, etc. You can complete these looks by adding classic pumps or high-heeled sandals. If you want to add an edgy touch to your cocktail party outfit, then you should add leather garments, like black, white, blue or brown leather skirt or top. Speaking of accessories and jewelry, then everything depends on your cocktail party outfit. If it’s simple, then you should pick out fancy and eye-catching jewelry. If you are wearing printed or rich color outfit, then you better keep accessories and jewelry to the minimum. Never wear too much jewelry, otherwise, you gonna look like a real gypsy woman.
