Black Cocktail Dresses

The ultimate closet staple? The little black cocktail dress. Whether you prefer fitted bodycons or A-line shifts, discover plenty of dresses in the dark, go-with-everything shade.

Desk To Dinner
After work cocktails doesn’t require a wardrobe change. Make your black cocktail dress work overtime by pairing it with work-appropriate add-ons.  Layer a simple sleeveless dress with a matching black blazer and heels. For evening, ditch the jacket and accessorize with a statement necklace and bold lipstick.

Black-Tie Beautiful
Undeniable elegance is easy to achieve with a black cocktail dress. For old-school glamour, slip into a fit and flare from Lauren Ralph Lauren. Something more fitted? Calvin Klein and Tahari ASL have plenty of slim-fitting sheaths. Or take a twirl in an A-line cocktail dress from JS Collections.

Girls’ Night Out
Out on the town with the ladies? This is the perfect opportunity to try dresses with daring details. Fall in love with Maison Jules (only at Macy’s) and Free People dresses punctuated with lace overlays. For flirtatious necklines and hemlines, look to Adrianna Papell, Jessica Simpson and GUESS. Want to shine? Step into the spotlight with beaded or studded designs from kensie, or our exclusive Thalia Sodi and Bar III collections.
