Image for Where Can You Wear a Black Cocktail Dress

We are now entering the final stretch before Christmas. It is no longer too early for Christmas jumpers, it’s time to embrace to Christmas tunes, and there is no point resisting the tins of Quality Street any longer. In this final push before Christmas there are also office parties, nights out, family gatherings, and Christmas get-togethers, happening left right and centre. 

This time of year brings a whole host of fashion choices for women attending all different kinds of Christmas events. Whether it is a Christmas jumper party (which have soared in popularity in the last few years), or a formal Christmas ball, there are always new and exciting pieces available on the high street to help you get prepared. Is your outfit ready for a night out with the girls? Have you got your dress for the office Christmas party?

If you are still undecided about what to wear to all of your Christmas social occasions, then read on for some inspiration.

As there are so many occasions to look forward to over Christmas, it can be a little overwhelming to think about getting your hands on a new outfit for every one, but there can be a simple solution that will see you right through Christmas, and even New Year. This solution is choosing the right dress, or more specifically, a black cocktail dress

Dresses are great to wear for any kind of party or gathering, but black cocktail dresses have a classic, sophisticated, elegance that will allow you to wear the same dress almost anywhere. A lot of women dream of finding their perfect little black dress, but maybe thought it was too difficult, or never foresaw a need to own one, but this festive time of year is the perfect excuse to add a bit of flair to your wardrobe. 
At first thought, a black cocktail dress may seem a bit over the top for some occasions, but if you start thinking of it as a normal black dress, then you will realise that it can be adapted for almost anything. For example, you can go with the traditional formal look by putting your hair up in an elegant chignon, adding delicate silver jewellery and matching black heels, or you can layer it with a soft waterfall blazer, fashionable statement jewellery, and flat pumps.

Classic black cocktail dresses are always associated with glamorous and sparkling occasions, certainly appropriate for the festive season, but there is no reason why black cocktail dresses can’t also serve as a simple but stylish outfit for more informal occasions. If you really want to tone down the formality, make sure you opt for a cocktail dress that doesn’t have too many embellishments and isn’t a maxi length, or conversely you could amp up the glamour by choosing a dress with beautiful lace and diamond-style accents. 

As mentioned before, black cocktail dresses are a perfect choice for the Christmas period, no matter if you are attending a formal Christmas ball, a meal with your work colleagues, or both. Accessorize it how you want, and as long as you feel comfortable, then a black cocktail dress could be your style saviour this season
