When you're next reviewing the vast collection of outfits in your wardrobe, chances are there'll be row upon row of skinny jeans and leggings, but few precious cocktail dresses. It's true they're not everyday wear, but following on from the massive trend for maxi dresses in the past few years, they are back in a big way. Banish all thought of 80s shoulder pads, velvet, and the fearsome ladies of Dynasty. These cocktail dresses are fresh, on-trend, and fabulous. Next time you're invited to a dinner party, cocktail bar, or dance, forget the pleather leggings or onesie, and make the dress the center of your evening outfit. If you don't fancy a big frumpy ballgown for your prom, summer ball or other big event, turn the tables and pick a look that's perennially chic: the cocktail dress. Remember the classic LBD worn by Holly Go-lightly in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany's? Audrey Hepburn was wearing a cocktail dress as she gazed wistfully into Tiffany's window on Manhattan's 5th Avenue in that iconic scene (pearls, elbow-length gloves, sunglasses and croissant are optional extras). Modern cocktail dresses channel that classic Audrey aesthetic, while lending you a sleek, modern look that's not too "done". For a modern take on the trend pick a white dress instead, team it with an up-do, leather jacket and sky-high heels for a look that's pure urban class and perfect for daytime too. No matter how you wear it, a cocktail dress should be part of every wardrobe.
