Trending Spring Cocktail Dresses With Statement Sleeves

Aside from their striking spring shades and intricate applique detailing, these spring cocktail dresses have seriously impressed us with their unique sleeves. For example, the Zayla mini dress by Elliatt. Firstly, this stunning floral masterpiece wows with all-over appliques, a fit-and-flare silhouette, and a playful deep V-neckline. Secondly, the romantic puffed sleeves demand attention and complete its beautifully unique silhouette. We’ll be slipping into this must-have mini every chance we get and plan on styling it with an equally stunning bag and heels. Our advice? Pair yours with the seriously chic La Medusa shoulder bag by Versace and Roman Romance sandals by Aquazzura.

Meanwhile, lovers of sleek one-shoulder silhouettes are in for a treat with the Mercury mini by AJE. Destined to elevate your spring and summer closet, this striking pink dress is exquisitely vibrant and made to be noticed. Additionally, the all-over ruched detail makes for an incredibly flattering silhouette – made more beautiful with heeled sandals. So, we recommend getting your hands on The Attico’s Esther sandals and the white small Horsebit 1955 shoulder bag by Gucci for the freshest spring cocktail party look!

Strappy Spring Cocktail Dresses Will Liven Up Your New Season Eveningwear

When it comes to spring cocktail dresses you can never go wrong with strappy styles. We’ve fallen head over heels for Love Shack Fancy’s Mensa satin mini dress as it perfectly embraces spring and the romance trend! Firstly, it boasts the prettiest floral appliques on soft pink satin. Secondly, the barely-there spaghetti straps and micro mini hemline are a match made in heaven. Attending a spring event that goes from day to night? Wear this dress with the Lidia mirrored leather sandals by Paris Texas and the silver Monaco chain bag by Balenciaga.

Finally, when the event calls for a little sparkle, think outside the box with Cult Gaia’s Bebe short sleeveless dress. This bold blue sequin dress will make a lasting impression and goes perfectly with silver accessories. Simply add the metallic leather wedge sandals by Magda Butrym and knot leather clutch by Bottega Venta for date nights, parties, and everything in between.
