Cocktail dresses and contemporary co-ords for evening wear are two of the most popular categories for womenswear. Whether it's a family dinner or a wedding party, finding the perfect cocktail dress or coordinate is key. Cocktail dresses are available in a wide range of silhouettes - one-shoulder, strapless, full-sleeved, halter necks and sleeveless and in varied lengths - midi, midis and maxis. They are handcrafted from sustainable fabrics such as silk, viscose, hemp, Tencel, lace and many others.
When it comes to selecting the right cocktail dress, it's important to consider the tone of the event and time of day - whether it’s a brunch, sundowner or late evening. For daytime dressing we’d recommend lighter colours, lighter weight fabrics and bright prints with minis and midis being a favourite. If your sundowner is leading into a late night or it’s a dinner party, we’d suggest opting for our floor length maxis in drapey and free-slowing silhouettes for easy elegance. If you’re one for co-ords, browse our silk section for classics and bold styles. Classics and solids can be dressed up with our statement-making jewels. For printed co-ord sets, you can style it with a modern blazer and heels.
What should I buy for cocktail parties? If you prefer a more classic look, a solid black dress with a flattering cut is a timeless choice. If you prefer making a statement, a printed maxi dress or one with intricate beading or texture is a great option. In addition to the style and fabric of the dress, accessories play a crucial role. For cocktail dresses, a pair of heels and a clutch purse is typically what's needed; however, to elevate your evening look, shop our statement jewelry such as chandelier earrings or a choker.
How often can I wear one style? You should try and style them in multiple ways which will give you the freedom to wear it for many seasons to come. Depending on the dress and the occasion for which you're wearing it, you can dress it up or down with as many or as few accessories as you like. The same would apply to your hair and makeup choices. A semi-formal dress can also be made to look casual with a denim jacket and a cool pair of sneakers or trainers.
Can I wear my cocktail dresses for day time brunches? Yes, you can add some colour to your outfit if it’s a darker shade - may be a scarf or a light overlay. Pair it with easy laid-back sandals and you would have dressed down your style for a weekend brunch!
When buying a co-ord, can I opt for a different size top and bottom? Of course you can. During check out under Special Instructions you can leave us a note with your size preference. Can I customize the lengths for styles I’m interested in? Yes, we can alter the lengths for the styles you’re looking to purchase. If you need to add length to them you’d need to write to us on email@example.com with the style names and your preferred length. We’ll get back to you soon after with the feasibility for the same.
