The Classic Black Cocktail Dress

The Classic Black Cocktail Dress

A black cocktail dress is not just for evening parties anymore, it can be worn to any occasion you can think of and even more! Black is a classic color and one that goes well with just about anything. This color has a classic elegance to it, but can also be seen in a formal setting. The black cocktail dress comes in a variety of different styles, from the elegant full length to the shorter more casual styles and everything in between.

A black cocktail dress is really a versatile dress, suitable for casual daytime affairs, often referred to as casual cocktail parties, at times in the late evening, and with a variety of accessories to compliment the dress. The most common accessories are the matching leather shoes. These are great accessories for this type of occasion because they go well with most dresses. If your dress is to be long, you can still wear the same leather shoes but you can tie them off to make it more formal. One thing that always gets the attention of guests is the color of the shoes; so make sure you get a pair of black for your black cocktail dress.

Of course when going for black cocktail dresses, you don’t want the shoes to be too flashy or you will look over the top. The shoes should be the focal point and your dress should match it well, if you are going with a long black dress, you may want to consider wearing your high heels or even a high-heeled sandal and pair that with your black cocktail dress. A black dress with black shoes can look fabulous especially if you have a nice pair of heels and your shoe rack is bare. Another idea is to match your shoes to your dress, this means that if your dress is short, then go for a pair of black pumps, if your dress is longer, then choose a pair of black flats and you have a great look together. So next time you have a special occasion or are going out on a date, do not forget to add some black to your wardrobe and have yourself a night on the town with your black cocktail dress.
