So, you’ve been invited to a cocktail party and you’re trying to find the right dress. Something fancy (but not like an evening gown) something form fitting (but you want to be able to sit down!). Cocktail dresses are a perfect mixture of class and sex appeal. Drinking a martini by the bar while wearing a slinky little number will certainly make heads turn. Either you’re in a smoking hot ruby red off the shoulder dress, or maybe a classy subtle silver midi, cocktail dresses give you the opportunity to play around with sexy shapes and interesting structural details.
