Christmassy Cocktail Dresses

I was out shopping a few days ago and noticed that the Christmas dresses are all out in force.  I absolutely love this time of year, with rail after rail glistening with cocktail dresses, glittering with sequins and sparkles galore.  That has to be the key thing I look for when I go to buy a dress for my Christmas party – it’s GOT to sparkle!

Christmas is probably the only time of year that we could get away with wearing such a ridiculously sparkly dress, so make the most of it.  We are lucky that gorgeous cocktail dress come in tons of styles and designs – the hardest part is choosing one.  A sequined dress doesn’t just inject a touch of glamour; it also puts me in mind of the Hollywood starlets of the past.  And another thing – cocktail dresses don’t have to be black!  I get so bored when I’m chatting to my girlfriends about our Christmas cocktail dresses and they all begin with “Well it’s black….” So I went on the hunt for a sparkly, sequined dress of COLOR. 

When I typed the words “sequined cocktail dress” into my search engine, there were tonnes of sites popping up, and a lot of them were money-motivated.  The top sites were the ones offering cocktail dresses at around a mere $30, which got my pulse racing  (and so many styles, from retro and modern to racy and demure). I adored the red sequined numbers but was worried I would come across as a bit of a Jessica Rabbit wannabe, so settled with a gorgeous lilac dress with a shabby chic feel – brought to you by Kate Moss no less!  So remember, when it comes to cocktail dresses, black isn’t always best!

    Sequins, cocktail dresses, and empire cut dresses are all dresses that are appropriate for this holiday season. Not only that, but cocktail dresses are perfect for any formal or semi formal event.
