Chic Cocktail Dresses for Any Wedding

An invitation to a wedding can be a surprisingly tricky affair where fashion is concerned. Of course you always want to look your best, particularly on the most special day of a loved one’s life, but overshadowing the bridal party is a cardinal sin, so some sartorial restraint is advisable. The cocktail dresses at ShopBop are inspired by the freshest designer looks of the season, giving you the fabulous flair expected of a fashion forward femme without making your statement of style too loud for the festivities.
Nicole Bakti Evening Gown 
This beautiful full length evening gown features a streamlined silhouette perfect for accentuating the hipline and is rendered in the striking midnight blue that has become this season’s go-to interpretation of black as neutral color. Don’t worry about fading into the background though; this eye-catching piece also features a gleaming custom embellishment at the waist as well as lace detailing for added visual interest.
Elegant Sparkle Bodice Dress from Night Moves by Allure 
If the vibrant palette of springtime is more your taste this season, this piece from the well-known design house brings the color with its rich peach tone while its ample flowing pleats ensure that there is plenty of it to appreciate. Finished with eye-catching sparkle detailing, this dress is impossible to miss yet appropriate for a variety of occasions.
Jovani Evening Dress 
This timeless feminine hue gets a sophisticated treatment in this piece from Jovani, offering pearl-look beading at the torso for texture and shine while a keyhole bust draws the eye toward the upper body. Designed to closely hug the contours of the body with its slender cut, this style of cocktail dress is perfect for showing off subtle curves.
Eliza J Embellished Tiered Chiffon Halter Gown 
For weddings in warmer temperatures, you’ll need a more weather-appropriate piece, and this stylish cocktail dress from Eliza J is designed as just that. It features a loose, flowy silhouette for all day comfort at a spring or summer affair, and its bold neckline is a showcase for shapely shoulders.
Tadashi Shoji Lace Overlay Dress 
Another excellent warm weather option is this piece, featuring a deep blue overlay with a nude-tone backing for stunning contrast. Its' fun lace detailing puts a modern twist on a classic style element while its mid-thigh cut gives it a flirty character simply made for the singles table at this year’s receptions. 
The start of spring is the beginning of wedding season, and for the most fashionable ladies, that means finding the right looks for the big day ahead of time. While it’s true that wedding guests should never overshadow the wedding party, there’s no reason why you can’t be the best dressed guest.
