Cocktail dresses are the perfect solution for a variety of events. Whether you need something to wear to an elegant night out or want to celebrate a special occasion looking fabulous, the many choices of cocktail dresses will give you plenty of options when you want to dress up. For plus-sized figures, there are many options of dress shapes and designs to flatter the figure.
A black dress is a classic every woman should have in her closet, and this basic dress looks great for any occasion. To slim the figure, look for a dress that cinches in at the waist and features an a-line hem, which will balance out wider hips. Minimize the appearance of the arms with a sleeved-dress – many elegant options include lace sleeves to dress up the look and slim the entire body. Opt for a dress that falls at the knee and a pair of heels will complete the outfit.
A classic black dress is an economical purchase because you can wear it for virtually any event and change the look around using accessories, such as shoes and jewelry to dress up the look. A chic faux fur wrap or pashmina add a beautiful touch when the weather turns a little colder.
For more festive events, look for a cocktail dress in a deep jewel-toned shade. If you are planning to attend a holiday party, look for dresses in shades of silver, gold or red to look festive, but elegant. For women who are heavier on top, a dress with halter top-inspired straps will offer support to a large bust and accentuate the neckline. If you want to show off your arms, any cocktail dress that is strapless will accentuate the shoulders and décolletage. Consider adding a wrap to the dress if you love a strapless gown, but do not wish to show off the arms.
When looking for detail on the cocktail dress, sequins, beading and ruching are all elegant ways to enhance the look of the gown. An alternative style, the wrap dress, is a flattering dress to every body shape and offers a beautiful neckline to show off statement jewelry. Pair a wrap dress with heels to create an elegant outfit for any occasion.
No matter what your size is, there are plenty of beautiful options so you can look and feel your best whenever you head out for a special occasion or event.
