“You can never go wrong with a simple and elegant column gown. Covering up can be sexier than anything.”

“I love an uber-feminine dress. Wear it with fierce metallic heels and a box clutch to balance out the girl-factor.”

“For an understated alternative to festive sparkle, go with a high-shine leather option in an unexpected color.”

“A dress in a bold print with an interesting hemline is perfect to dance the night away in!”

“When only full-on glamour will do, go for a cocktail dress or gown with dramatic volume, print or color.”

Bonus Option! “An evening jumpsuit is a great alternative to a cocktail dress – it’s my dinner party outfit of choice as it’s comfortable but also chic.”
