The Cocktail Dress Trends Of The Season

We are moving into the party season time of year. With afternoon soirees and weddings to attend – the question on everyone’s mind is what to wear. If the dress code is cocktail you have come to the right place (and you can RSVP yes!). With the warmer weather arising there is opportunity to wear a knee length dress or a silky satin number. It could be a little black dress that you have in mind or a lace dress number

We are breaking down this year’s best cocktail dress trends so that you are ready for all the gatherings you have ahead. Whether it be diamante embellishments or sequins galore, we have all the trends covered. Pairing your cocktail dress with the best accessories will have you ready to go out the door to your next party.


Silky Satin

A breezy silky stain number is always a good idea when it comes to cocktail dressing. Satin is sleek and sophisticated and can be perfectly dressed up with earrings if you are off to a summer wedding or dressed down with flats if you are wanting to sip on midday cocktails out in the city.


Crystal Additions

There’s nothing better than some diamantes to add a little bright spark to your cocktail dress. A little black dress can be transformed with a crystal addition or an elegant embellishment. A little black dress is the perfect option for your high school formal or for a mother of the bride look



Sparkly Sequins

Sequins scream party dress – and you need a party dress for the upcoming party season. Whether you prefer a classic black or a chic gem tone such as emerald, sequins will always make you look ready for the summer. A glitzy sequin will work for your seasonal celebrations and your late-night soirees.


Little White Dresses

The little white dress is always one you need for your summer wardrobe. For those sun lit balcony alfresco parties and the seaside palomas. Pair a little white dress with some jewel dripped earrings for ultimate sophistication. A little white dress is also perfect for your rehearsal dinner or bridal shower or even for your beach wedding.


Pastel Pops

Pops of pastel shades are always a spring time favourite and a perfect for your bridesmaids or for a wedding guest dress. Subtle pinks and blues make for a beautiful colour palette for your sunny day moments. Pair these colours with pastel earrings or tones of gold jewellery.
