Stunning Fall Cocktail Dresses That Take Your Breath Away

Put out the appetizers and start pouring the martinis; cocktail party season has arrived. Whether you’re attending a wedding, a formal work event, or a cocktail party at a friend’s home, you’re going to need a stunning cocktail dress. Here’s a rundown of the latest styles of fall and winter cocktail dresses that will take your breath away.


Off the Shoulder Cocktail Dress

Looking sexy over 40 can be a little bit tricky because revealing a lot of skin looks tacky. The off-the-shoulder style solves this dressing problem.

An off-the-shoulder cocktail dress is sexy in a grown-up way. This elegant red sheath is classic and modest, but the shoulder-skimming neckline and flouncy bell sleeves make it alluring. This would be fabulous in winter, especially around holiday time, but red is always on-trend so you could wear this any time of year.

Wrap Style Cocktail Dress

A wrap-style cocktail dress is always très chic and super figure-flattering. This purple number has a faux wrap waist which means you get that slimming ruching at the core, but you don’t have to worry about tugging at a waist belt or about the neckline drooping.

Purple is a regal and spiritual color and looks fab paired with cool silver accessories in the fall. And that satin shine makes it super glam.

Cowl Neck Cocktail Dress

If you are worried about a crepey neck, this cocktail dress will soften that area. A cowl neck cocktail dress is always very flowy and flattering, and in this pretty orange chiffon, the result is a dreamy ensemble. This is a great color if you live in a warmer climate or at the start of fall when we’re in that summer/fall transition period. Nude accessories keep this party outfit looking soft and romantic.

Ruffle Hem Cocktail Dress

Imagine that feminine swish-swish as you sashay into the party room in this bold pink ruffle hem cocktail dress. This little number has a sleek, traditional silhouette and the soft ruffle adds a big dose of feminine fun.

Ruffles are a major trend at the moment, and many gals our age find they can be too little girly. But a cocktail dress as simple and streamlined as this, with just a shot of ruffle at the bottom, is clean and charming.

Are you going somewhere where you need a wow cocktail dress? Which style is your favorite?
