Modern Cocktail Attire

Modern Cocktail Attire

With the arrival of June comes a whole new season of events - weddings, graduation parties, bridal showers - and with those events comes the need for a versatile, chic new dress. 

We love that rules for event dressing are looser, and you can get creative with not only your dress but your accessories as well.  Instead of a bold necklace, try throwing on a fringe, skinny scarf for a totally modern and updated take on the lariat.  And rather than stick to the basic black handbag, add color, texture and sparkle with a Lucite clutch filled with flowers.

From L to R: Ashlyn'd clutch, Versace Collection dress, Sarah Weinstock french lace starburst pendant, Halston notch neck dress, Shiraleah leopard print clutch, Chan Luu skinny scarf with fringe, ALC "Louise" dress and Claudio Cutuli laser cut leather handbag

Each of these dresses can easily take you from a daytime luncheon to an evening wedding, all you need is a change of footwear and a touch more lipstick.

a midsummer night out

a midsummer night out

Balmy July weather calls for late night drinks and evenings out.  Take advantage of patio culture and schedule romantic evenings with your significant other and of course some girls nights. 

There are no rules when it comes to after work dressing anymore; you can dress jeans way up with heels and a silk top or dress a cocktail or maxi dress way way down with a denim jacket and flat sandals. Don't be afraid to experiment with your styling, and definitely don't forget your accessories and a bright coral lip!
