When your invite’s dress code says "cocktail attire," this means a shorter party dress. Cocktail attire is much more casual than white or black tie and not as dressy as formal attire. You can wear a party dress on a night out on the town, to homecoming, and even to the prom. Shop our selection now!
Designer Party Dresses: Things to Consider
Party dresses incorporate a broad range of looks. These include colorful or festive dresses, textured or printed dresses, nifty two-piece numbers and obviously, the classic little black or little white dress.
So how do you decide what to wear? If you’re going to a party, think about what the host might wear. If she is elegant and creative, wear a trendy little number to echo her vibe. If she’s more conservative or older, choose a classic LBD or LWD. You could go for a knee-length dress or mid-thigh length piece in a solid color like navy blue or teal. The Dress Warehouse has a vast array of options when it comes to designer party dresses on sale, including all of the above suggestions.
What other options do you have? There are a few types of cocktail party dresses, including lace dresses, dresses with embellishments, and A-line dresses. Lace dresses are fun, feminine, and perfect for dates and casual daytime weddings. Embellished dresses are festive and playful. A-line dresses are classic and glamorous. You can choose an A-line with spaghetti straps, strapless, or cap-sleeved.

Or, channel your inner diva with a bold, figure-hugging, drop-dead gorgeous mini dress. Shatter the night in an electric blue body-con number, sparkling from front to back with a plunging V-neck for good measure.
Accessorizing Short Mini Dresses
Mini dresses are short enough to express your beauty, so you can wear them with flats, especially if you’re tall. Experts don’t recommend pairing a mini dress with very high heels because they heighten the bum. This makes the dress look even shorter, bordering on skimpy. 2-inch heels are best for a chic, yet comfortable look. Your choice of shoes should also depend on the style and color of your dress.
If you want to distract from the length of the dress, pair it with statement jewelry and a belt. Feel free to accessorize with an opulent necklace or bracelet or an elegant pair of diamond drop earrings. On the other hand, tone down the jewelry if the dress itself is glittery and flashy.
