There is nothing like a late summer cocktail party – drinks and hors d’oeuvres on the rooftop of a lux hotel, a fabulous view of the city. You never know who you might meet at one of these soirees, so it’s always best to be prepared! You’ll want to rock a killer cocktail dress, one that fits and flatters. A classic LBD (little black dress) always works, but what about trying something in white?
White is feminine and demure, but the trick is to toughen up the look a bit with black accessories. Pair white ruffles and lace with black leather stiletto booties. Add a rocker chick black leather clutch to a white dress adorned in sequins. Top a white chiffon dress with a cropped black leather motorcycle jacket. The overall effect is a little bit punk, yet totally feminine and hot right now.
Here we’ve gathered a few white dresses for that chic cocktail party. The conversation is up to you!
1) Alice + Olivia Iridescent Sequin Dress, $594. A simple pair of sexy black stilettos would finish up this outfit.
2) Alice + Olivia Cream Party Dress, $550. A cropped leather motorcycle jacket would look so hot with this dress.
3) Nicole Miller Strapless Tiered Cocktail Dress, $495. Here, the black is already there for you. We’d add a long strand of pearls for a bit of a rebel look.
