The cocktail dress is a staple of many well-dressed women’s wardrobes. A cocktail dress is appropriate for a wide variety of situations. You can dress it up for fancy parties and even weddings, or dress it down for a date.
The length can be anything from mid-thigh to ankle, allowing you to choose a cocktail dress that best accentuates your body shape. The material can be silky and romantic or cotton and modest. Choosing a cocktail dress under normal circumstances is easy due to the wealth of styles that are readily available. However, you may want a cocktail dress that falls into a more limited category. In this case, you may need a few suggestions to find the perfect cocktail dress.
What woman doesn’t want her cocktail dress to be sexy? However, care should be taken to make sure that your cocktail dress does not cross the unwritten line between sexy and trashy. The best way to look sexy is to play up your assets whether it be great legs or cleavage. However, you should choose one asset to play up. A dress that is short, tight, sleeveless and plunging will give the appearance of trying too hard. Any combination of these elements is fine, as long as you are careful not to overdo it.
When selecting a sexy cocktail dress, look for sleek and luxurious fabrics. A beautiful cut in a rich fabric will add a hint of sophistication to the dress. Also, remember that less is sometimes more when it comes to showing skin. For example, a side slit can be an elegant and sexy detail that hints at skin without being to revealing.
