Formal Cocktail Dresses

When a big event comes along, it’s important to have the right style of dress to really make the occasion special. There are many choices in formal cocktail dresses to choose from, what matters is that the dress she chooses highlights the event perfectly. The dress  must also have a look and fit that shows her off at her very best.

There’s a certain amount of freedom even in formal wear these days. For some events, a long gown seems just right. For others, a dress in a shorter length might be the perfect choice for really kicking up her heels and doing the town.

There is also a range in the kind of feeling a formal dress conveys, and a lot of that comes down to the choice of color. Whether she wants to make a statement that’s understated in neutrals like black or white or beige, or kick it up a notch in a vibrant shade of purple or green, what matters is that she wears her party dress with the confidence of knowing she looks great, just as she is.

BCBGMAXAZRIA has beautiful dresses in a knee length style that will show her off at her very best. These dresses have a swinging pleated skirt that’s ultra flattering, along with a fitted, belted waist. These halter dresses show her off from top to bottom, beautifully. Flirty and fun, she’ll be the belle of the ball in a choice from this line.

Anne Klein knocks it out of the park in satin party dresses that have a ruffled edge that drapes down from a gathered waistline. These satin dresses will have her turning heads as she reaches for a canapé appetizer. Pair one of these pieces with high-heeled pumps for a knock'em dead look.
