Evening Wear – Cocktail Dresses

Cocktail Dresses: All Eyes on You

Light up the night in Fall’s most attention-worthy styles. As the social season draws near, we have rounded up a stunning selection of cocktail and evening dresses for potential parties this season that will require a standout dress. From weddings to work parties, Valentine’s Day dates and holiday events – get party perfect in this season’s bold styles.

This fall, designers have added opulence and glamour to evening looks through the use of intricate embroideries, opulent floral details fit for royalty, Moroccan style fabrics, dramatic lace and embellishments. You’ll see eye-catching contrast, sultry glittering-one shoulder dresses that inspire a double take and well-placed sequins that catch the light with every twirl. Go off-the-shoulder and on the A-list or embrace the edge in a high-neck, leg baring dress. Sparkle and shine in Fall’s favorite wine hue. Open backs are balanced by chic sleeves.

Get armed for the evening – from a quiet flutter to a bold sequin, this season’s sleeves command our attention. Illusion mesh and statement making sequins are sheer genius on many of fall’s richly detailed cocktail dresses. Long sleeves perfect the high slit, jacquard pops with classic knit sleeves and half sleeves create full impact.

We’ve found some huge savings to kick off your weekend! Find our list of the best online sales at the bottom of this post.
