1. Red Velvet Cocktail Dress

When red is the color of Santa’s velvet suit, it is no wonder that red velvet cocktail dresses are the first ones to get snapped up. But bright Christmas red is only sometimes the most popular shade; for a more sophisticated look, most mature women prefer a quieter, more refined version of red and lean towards burgundy or wine.

For example, a gorgeous wine-colored velvet dress is very flattering at any age. This toned-down red is easy to wear, and the beautiful wrap style is a great way to show off your waist. Long sleeves look elegant and are hard to find, and modest knee length is modern and flattering.

2. Green Velvet Cocktail Dress

Christmas Tree Green is the other obvious color for a velvet dress this time of year. This gorgeous green velvet off-the-shoulder dress is elegant and alluring. The wide neckline creates the illusion of broader shoulders, making the hips and waist look more balanced and giving you an hourglass shape. Pair it with silver heels and a bag for a cool, icy winter look.

Blue Velvet cocktail dresses are harder to find but worth it if you snag one. This deep blue color feels rare and unique, embedded with tiny, shiny crystals. Navy blue is a great choice for gals our age as it is just as slimming as black but softer on the complexion.

This wrap style is feminine and elegant, and in deep blue velvet, it takes on a magical feel. This flowy shape creates a definition and shows off your curves. Blue velvet reminds me of a winter night. Did you see the blue velvet cocktail dress I like to wear at Christmas?
