Mini Glitzy Cocktail Dresses For Date Night

Whether it’s a romantic evening for two or a date with friends, these glitzy cocktail dresses are all you need for your evening out. Firstly, we’re loving the Sara floral sequin mini by Helsi. Mixing things up with a chic shade of deep purple, this dress is the perfect switch-up from your usual black or red date night looks. Additionally, thanks to its expertly tailored fit, it’ll accentuate your figure beautifully. Lastly, we’re powerless to resist the all-over floral sequin detailing, gently puffed shoulders, and open back. Just add heels for a truly memorable date night look you’ll want to wear again and again.

Meanwhile, if it’s a sleek new LBD you’re looking for, Rococo Sand has you covered. Their Ciara short dress is not only one of the prettiest little black dresses we’ve seen so far this year, it’s also made for fall and winter weather. Therefore, we guarantee you’ll fall just as in love with its long cuffed sleeves, ruffled shoulders, and flattering pleated waist as we have. Not to mention, that adorable flared mini skirt was made to compliment and draw attention to your choice of designer footwear! Our advice? Pair yours with coordinating heeled black sandals for the ultimate color block ‘fit.

Glitzy Cocktail Dresses To Wear Now And Throughout The Festive Season

Remember, you certainly don’t need to save your glitzy cocktail dresses for the festive season. That said, some on the list are so perfect for upcoming holiday parties on our calendar, we fully plan to wear them now and then! For example, the Roxana mini dress by Sabina Musayev is the festive frock of our dreams. Firstly, it has a gorgeous plunge v-neckline, long puffed sleeves, and a flattering twisted bodice. Secondly, the flared mini skirt with a pretty flounced hem was made for swishing, dancing, and celebrating! Pair your with equally dramatic heels for an unforgettable after-dark look this fall and winter.

Meanwhile, if something a little sultrier and slinkier fits the bill, look no further than Bardot’s Stasia sequin cocktail dress. From the chic corset style top and barely there spaghetti straps the bias cut silhouette and ankle length skirt. Everything about this dress exudes glamour and luxury and we can’t wait to slip into it every chance we get!
