Party In Style With Summer’s Sweetest Cocktail Dresses

It’s the last few weeks of this glorious summer, time to put on our cocktail dresses and simply enjoy it. With autumn looming, we want to make the absolute most of the remaining fair weather and celebrate in style. Any of these beautifully sweet dresses will do the trick and have you feeling fabulous in seconds. All that’s left to do is grab yourself a drink and pick out which heels to wear.

Printed Cocktail Dresses That Make A Bold Statement

It may be getting cooler but whilst the sun still shines we want bright, beautiful cocktail dresses that make statements. The striped knit, wrap style mini dress by Balmain certainly ticks all the boxes. The stylish wrap shape is perfectly form fitting whilst the white graphic print on black fabric is truly striking. Longer sleeves are ideal for the slightly less fiery temperatures whilst the shorter hemline gives a subtle nod to summer.

Looking at the A/W 2018 catwalk shows there’s no denying that animal print is most definitely back. The bow detail leopard print brown dress by P.A.R.O.S.H, therefore, could not be more on trend. A sleek boat neckline and flared knee-length skirt keeps this dress stylish in this fearless print. Meanwhile, the bow detail on the waist cleverly adds a touch of fun and whimsy to the dress.

Summer Cocktail Dresses To See You Right Through To Autumn

Something we adore about cocktail dresses is how versatile they can be. We’re happy to splash the cash every now and then on a dress that’s particularly incredible. If that dress can be an investment to see us through more than one season, however, that’s even better. The key is finding those dresses that are adaptable with a simple change of shoes or accessory. Take the Lanora pleated, tiered blue dress by Alice & Olivia. This stunning, deep blue pleated dress with lace trim can be brightened with nude or metallic heeled sandals for summer. Simply add in heeled velvet boots for a more striking, autumnal look.

Similarly, the black velvet cocktail dress by Redemption has long dotted sleeves that, being sheer, are cool enough for summer. Pair this dress with black, low denier tights and heels and the sparkles will see you through to party season!
