Cocktail dress code etiquette is a way of stating the dress code that is suitable for the evening; more formal than casual clothes and less formal than evening wear (i.e. black tie).
Traditionally, a cocktail dress’s length is to the knee, but of course you can go for something a little shorter if you wish.. Short, strapless styles can also look great!
I came across this beautiful lace dress in Kabuki Boutique recently. The scalloped neckline is super feminine - I adore the strong cobalt blue colour and of course, the sparkle!
All that lace, sparkle and scalloping sounds a little over powering but teamed with a simple pair of shoes and hat, I think it's perfect :-)
For the hat, I decided to keep it all blue. I went for a simplistic style with these new type swirls I'm loving at the minute!
What do you think?
Here are some other dresses I fell in love with from this brand (Pictures below)
They're perfect for any occasion; whether it be a cocktail party, a wedding, a black tie event or if you're just looking for an excuse to dress up!
I hope you liked this post!
