Cocktail Dresses

John Marine | 12:03 AM | |
Any dress can make a girl feel beautiful. When the occasion calls for a night out in colder weather times, cocktail dresses are great to get all dolled up in. These evening dresses are popular for party time or nights out. Though they are lovely any time of year, they surely become popular in cold weather times. Sure enough, the style gets hot when wearing a cocktail dress on a cold night. This blog post is dedicated to the girl who loves to dress up for a night out. Get all dolled up for this one. It's party time!

This is the *OFFICIAL* 300th post to "StyleSpace by JBM!"

Cocktail Dresses

Time to talk cocktail dresses. Here's one for you:

^ from: - Cocktail dresses can warm up the coldest of nights with their hot style. These dresses are popular in cold weather times, but they are beautiful all year 'round.

A true girly-girl can feel beautiful by wearing a dress as beautiful as she is. This is apparent whether wearing a lovely daytime dress or a glamourous nighttime dress. Or maybe one wears an amazing dress that can be taken from day to night with a few different items. Regardless, cocktail dresses are some of the most famous and trendiest party dresses a female can wear. Their namesake comes from the fact these dresses are named after various cocktail drinks. For the girl who just wants to look and feel beautiful, one can not go wrong sporting a cocktail dress. I don't drink or smoke, so I can't speak to any level regarding alcoholic drinks or stuff like that.

Most cocktail dresses fall down to inches/centimeters above the knees. They may have have an A-line (nowadays referred to as "skater") sort of look and feel, or they can be a bit more form-fitting. What makes cocktail dresses so popular are really just how beautiful and flowing they can be. Any girl who wants to look and feel pretty on a night out would look and feel her absolute best in a cocktail dress. Cocktail dresses can be adorned with sparkly accents, ruffles, high-low/mullet designs, and many more styling touches. These dresses can also come in a multitude of colors. They can have satin, silk, and lace among other materials. You can look fabulous in them even if you're petite or curvy.

Any dress that makes a female feel as beautiful as she looks is certainly a winner to me, and cocktail dresses certainly are winners. Dressy pumps and dressy sandals are usually complimented with cocktail dresses. I would imagine you'd have to find some warm tights in case it gets cold. I do not recommend the style advice in this sentence, but one stylist would suggest pairing fishnet tights and combat boots with cocktail dresses when I saw a YouTube video on cocktail dresses. Uh, no. To me- no combat boots, no sneakers... don't ruin the beauty and elegance of a cocktail dress with something trashy or overly casual. I might give a pass to dressy gladiator sandals. Maybe go with sneakers or something if you want something more comfortable to walk in besides dressy shoes, but keep the casual shoes at home with cocktail dresses. A cute touch you could add to a cocktail dress would be a bolero jacket in case of cold weather. A bolero that nicely matches a cocktail dress is better. You have a number of options to style such cocktail dresses. To me, it's all about being and feeling glamourous.

Cocktail Dresses: Final Thoughts

When it comes to glamorous dresses, cocktail dresses are fun and stylish for the lady all ready for a night out. These are fun dresses for occasions ranging from proms to parties and things like that. One really can't do any wrong styling cocktail dresses. So once you get all dolled up and get ready to have some fun when night falls, go find a cocktail dress as fabulous as you are. Feel as beautiful as you want to be. Just go have fun and score yourself a sweet cocktail dress!
