What exactly is it about summer that we all like, aside the fact that we have a few weeks off from work? Weddings, parties, graduations, and other events abound this time of year, giving you plenty of opportunities to express your personal style and wear the ideal attire. Due to this, one of the most popular dress codes—”cocktail dresses”—is the topic of discussion today.
The cocktail dress was first described as a “short garment that is suited for formal settings” in a 1927 issue of Vogue. As fashion changed over the years, the definition of cocktail dress became a little more lenient. While the shapes and lengths of the dresses you can wear may differ, jumpsuits and blazers are also appropriate for the situation. Let’s assume for the time being that cocktail dresses fall between between daytime and evening attire.
The StyleSearch team has chosen four different sorts of cocktail dresses for you to wear this summer, along with one more piece of advice on the hottest colors for spring/summer 2022. After reading this article, I bet we will have assisted someone in finding an answer to the awful quandary, “What should I wear?”
The classic cocktail dresses
Let’s begin with the traditional cocktail attire. They are typically knee-length dresses, which without being vulgar highlight femininity. The idea is to appear refined and elegant without being overdone. You will probably only wear these traditional formal gowns a few times a year, but they are worth it!
We have selected two outfits for you that are classic in style: Nina presents a straightforward but nonetheless chic appearance in an ivory cocktail dress with long sleeves, loose hair, and minimal makeup. Ilse chose a black lace cocktail dress with the perfect amount of fitting detail.
Spring-summer vibes: floral cocktail dresses
My blog’s followers are aware of my obsession with floral themes, so it would be impossible for me to keep it a secret for the “cocktail dresses” theme as well. What outfit, in your opinion, is more appropriate for this season than a vibrant, happy flowery one?
This design is appropriate for any social gatherings and will never go out of style. Since no one will be able to see the colors of your stunning dress in the dark, it is obvious that you would prefer to wear a floral dress to events that begin in the daylight.
I’ve picked out two flowery dresses for you—a little and a maxi—that are totally different but nonetheless in style. I couldn’t have done better than Lauren’s choice of a one-shoulder, tiny, flowery dress that was really tight but not overly low cut. She also opted to wear a purse and silver heels.
One of my favorite dresses, a maxi flowery dress with puff sleeves, is worn by Milly. If that isn’t amazing taste, what is? She accessorized with a handbag and heels to complement the dress’ soft hues.
A feminine touch: maxi cocktail dresses
I adore maxi dresses, as you might have guessed. For the simple reason that they manage to be both highly stylish and comfortable, those that are slimmer at the waist and have a wider underneath stand out in particular.
Look at how elegant Olga’s maxi outfit is. She picked a blue one, which is a great summer color because it brings out your tan. Her clothing is simple but low cut, so it doesn’t look overdone. To make everything more glitzy, she added a belt.
Maxi dresses are also so lovely that you don’t always need to wear heels; occasionally a nice sandal will do to get you through the evening.
Maria believed me when I said that she would mimic me this summer as she sported a white maxi dress and sandals that matched her bag.
Modern cocktail dresses: the jumpsuits
Although the article’s title refers to “cocktail dresses,” many women today also enjoy wearing pants. As Cher famously stated, “get over it guys, we’re the rich men.” So let’s discuss how jumpsuits have evolved into one of the most popular and frequently worn ensembles for the “cocktail wear” dress code.
Jumpsuits have the advantage of creating alluring looks without showing too much skin. Also important are the fabric and cut, as well as how you choose to coordinate the accessories.
For instance, the satin jumpsuit is one that you simply cannot live without this summer. It is both elegant and light, like the one that Danique is wearing and features a stunning pastel pink color and design.
The first jumpsuit you should have in your wardrobe is a black one. It’s appropriate for every season and event, and it will boost your body confidence and make you feel more empowered as a woman.
Extra tip: the best colors of spring-summer 2022 cocktail dresses
The most crucial factor when it comes to summer clothing is color, so that’s my final piece of advice for today.
Of course, pastel colors are still popular this year; they are timeless. However, if you want to experiment with colors more, 2018 is the year to do it because neon and vivid hues are trendy.
The most significant fashion houses have selected green, orange, yellow, metallic blue, but above all fuchsia and purple for their spring/summer 2022 designs.
