Every woman should have at least one cocktail dress that can be worn to any party. Of course, it’s better to have more than one frock, that’s why I decided to create this post and share with you different designs that are versatile and make any lady look special and stand out from the crowd, no matter if it’s a wedding or a fancy party.
I personally like cocktail dresses with open shoulders revealing your back, hands or neckline area. Just make sure, you don’t show too much skin, keep away from transparent skirts, provocative mini skirts or sexy cut-outs. I do recommend to keep the right balance and let elegance control your body. Avoid vulgar or perverse designs, otherwise you gonna look cheap and weird. The color palette can be chosen by your personal preferences, starting from LBDs, blue to red and neon pink colored dresses. Anyway, I do recommend to take a close-up look through these ideas below to choose your favorite cocktail dress for the upcoming event!

How To Choose Shoes For A Cocktail Dress
Sometimes it’s quite hard to find an appropriate footwear to wear with your favorite cocktail dress. I think you should always stick to the following rule: wear shoes that match your dress color, or at least one of its colors. Here we see a nice example, where a two-color dress (black-gray-white) matches gray color pumps.
