Saying Yes to the Dress: The Best Cocktail Dresses for Wedding Season

Cracking cocktail dresses

It’s notoriously difficult to find the right one when there are so many cocktail dresses out there, but Stylight have compiled everything from LBD to neon skater dresses to help you look picture perfect for whoever you’re trying to impress!

Where did the term cocktail dress come from?

Although cocktail dresses are now suitable for many different occasions, they were originally worn exclusively at black-tie events, the ankle lengths of the hems reflecting the formality of the party. Hemming the line with evening dresses, longer length gowns are referred to as ballerina length, whereas those which rest an inch or two above the ankle are known as tea length. In the 1940s, Christian Dior began to refer to his shorter late afternoon length frocks as cocktail dresses, and that title stuck. Now a cocktail dress can be worn to both a wedding and a party, despite them resting at polar ends of the formality scale.

Famous cocktail dresses

Audrey Hepburn made Holly Golightly’s Givenchy little black dress the most iconic cocktail dress of all time, the famous opening titles scene resonating with viewers since it was released. Today, A-list stars rely on a classic cocktail dress to get them through movie premieres and award ceremonies.

How to style cocktail dresses

A cocktail dress is often a standalone piece, only needing a pair of high heels and a smile to complete your outfit. But if you’d like to wear something a little more alternative you could add a leather jacket and heeled boots, or prioritise practicality and cover up in the cooler months with a shawl and a slick of nude lipstick. Whatever kind of party you have coming up, Stylight will be able to offer a wide range of cocktail dresses to match your mood, and then provide you with inspiration for the perfect finishing touches from the top of your head to the tips of your Mary Janes.

Saying Yes to the Dress: The Best Cocktail Dresses for Wedding Season

Have a million wedding invites piled up on your desk this season? Wedding season can be as chaotic as fashion week, however, there’s no need to dread what to wear with an arsenal of cocktail dresses at hand.

We wouldn’t want you to outshine the bride, but there there is still a duty to fulfill your role as most stylish guest. Here, we’ve compiled different types of cocktail dresses that will take you from the ceremony to the dance floor with ease:

Take the Plunge

It’s better to leave some things to the imagination, and a cocktail dress with a V-neck does that with subdued sexiness. The revealing neckline becomes a blank canvas for necklaces of all lengths and shapes to embellish. The bride may be dripping in jewels but that doesn’t mean that you can’t, too.

Cinched In

Forget your wedding date, a belt is the ultimate soulmate. Whether it adds an extra detail to your cocktail dress or nips you in at the waist, a belt is there to show you off and flatter you in all the right places.

Bedazzled

Shine bright on the dance floor with a bedazzled cocktail dress. Avoid resembling a disco ball by keeping things simple with a neutral clutch and strappy nude heels and proceed to twist the night away with the bride and groom.

All Ruffled Up

If there’s any ornament that embodies romance, it’s ruffles. Stick with blush and nude hues to fully embrace the femininity of a ruffled cocktail dress. Pair it with a lacy shawl or fitted beige jacket to stay warm and prevent any cool temperatures from halting you to continue celebrating.

Nifty Shifty

A shift dress will allow you to save room for cake all while remaining comfortable and stylish. It’s a traditional, loose-fitting cut, but a graphic print or eye-catching pattern will upgrade the simple shape.

It may not be your wedding just yet, but for now a cocktail dress will be your trusty wingwoman in surviving the wedding season.
