Did he ask you out on a date? Do you think he is going to finally pop the question? Are you going out on a special corporate event? No matter where you are going, as long as it is somewhere or something that requires you to look your best, do not waste time and find the perfect cocktail dress that will highlight your best features and assets.
Cocktail dresses, in general, are worn on semi-formal events. They are not essentially floor-length dresses but neither are they just simple casual wears. A cocktail dress is a hybrid between sophisticated apparel and a comfortable piece of clothing that will allow you to move freely and socialize. Cocktail dresses are worn on events which will require a woman to go from one table to another and be able to socialize to the other guests of the event comfortably and easily while still looking sophisticated on a “black-tie” event.
With the rate that the fashion industry is going, choosing the ideal cocktail dress can either be easy or difficult, but definitely enjoyable. It can be easy in a way because there are so many dresses to choose from. There are lots of online and physical boutiques that offer a myriad of choices to choose from. However, it can be difficult, if you are the kind of girl who is not a big fan of huge choices and gets confused a lot.
In choosing a cocktail dress, you must first have to think or imagine what inspiration you want channeled. The top three choices among women are elegant chic, prim and proper feminine and edgy and sexy.
· Elegant Chic – this is a very sophisticated option among women who wants to command a room by exuding confidence through simple patterns. They key to achieve this look is by accessorizing since an elegant dress is usually minimal on details. Key materials for this look are usually sparkling or shimmering fabric or metallic colors combined with neutrals such as black, white, gray, brown or skin tone fabric. The celebrities to peg this look on are Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie and Meryl Streep.
· Prim and Proper Feminine – Frills, ruffles, pleats, laces and flowers are the most commonly used materials for feminine dresses and pink is the most used color for this look. This style is great for teenagers and women who have petite bodies. Taylor Swift is the star known for constantly sporting a sweet and innocent feminine look with her curly and bouncy hair, sweet face and adorable attitude that matches her natural style.
· Sexy and Edgy – To grab this style, black and red are obviously the colors to go for. This style is usually minimal on accessories and less fabric since it shows sexy patterns and the skin of the wearer itself. Allowing the wearer’s sexy figure do the talking with a sexy dress that hugs the curves is the trick in successfully pulling off this attire. Most prominent stars that wear sexy cocktail dresses are Britney Spears, Halle Berry, and Nicole Scherzinger.
