Cocktail Dresses

Make your next night out even more special with one of our formal dresses. Filled with designs to impress, the collection focuses on luxurious fabrics, flattering tailoring, and the delightful finishing touches that ensure each piece is extra elegant.

No woman’s wardrobe is complete without the ever-popular Little Black Dress. We’ve taken this evening staple and given it an elevated update, ensuring that it is perfect for sophisticated dinner parties and black-tie events alike. Browse the selection of Instantly Slimming formal dresses, complementing the favorable monochrome palette with built-in shapewear designed to help you look and feel amazing. Modest florals give these fancy dresses a feminine flair, as do delicate materials, such as chiffon and lace paneling. There’s a wide choice of necklines, including striking cold-shoulders and charming V-necks— all pair beautifully with our range of occasion necklaces.

Sophisticated Pops of Color

Our collection of formal dresses perfectly demonstrates that evening wear can involve vibrant colors and still be refined. Explore sweet pastels and cool blues seen on flowing silhouettes and figure-hugging sheath dresses. Many are enlivened by feminine details, like ruffled hemlines and trims. Shimmering fabrics in metallic tones make for an alternative way to stand out, as they bring a little extra sparkle to a high-end occasion. Heighten this glamorous aesthetic by opting for floor-sweeping cuts, pairing them with dazzling diamond earrings and a sequined clutch bag. Our colorful pieces are also perfect if you’re aiming to be the best-dressed wedding guest. Midi lengths with modest sleeves and necklines will take you from the ceremony to the reception with ease. Select a dress in a warm, soft tone when heading to a summer wedding, and look out for subtle prints that add a touch of interest.

Crisp White & Black Cocktail Dresses

Just like their black counterparts, white cocktail dresses have a timeless elegance. They are especially favorable in the warmer months, and are a great choice for lively garden parties and other alfresco celebrations. A classic fit-and-flare style cuts a feminine profile, ideal for pairing with cream patent heels and a slender bracelet watch. This easy-to-wear color also makes more adventurous styles completely versatile. Our white jumpsuits, for example, are a great alternative to formal dresses because they are sharply-tailored to fit in with an elevated dress code. Style them just as you would a fancy summer dress— with strappy sandals and glossy pearl earrings.
