With wedding season upon us it’s time to invest in a few cocktail dresses. Here are a few of our favorites that will guarantee that the bride won’t be the only one turning heads!

Pictured above, clockwise, from left:



Ammara’s Mosaic Dress would be perfect for a garden wedding. We love the cheery colors and classic cut.


Shoshanna’s Cecile Lace Dress is a beautiful coral color with a nude underlining. The scalloped edges are extremely feminine and perfect for a more formal affair.


The Lora Dress by Alice + Olivia is a flirty metallic number with a drop waist. There is a sheer panel in the back that makes it even edgier.


The Peony Dress by Jules Reid has a classic pouf silhouette that looks great worn with a belt. We’ve found that this shape flatters most body types, so find your best belt and throw it on! The bonus is the large side pockets– perfect for stashing a lipstick and some money for the valet.


The Jacquard Dress by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent has vivid stripes that accent a floral-print jacquard dress. It is styled with an open back and softly pleated skirt and would look great with either strappy silver heels or a more casual wedge.


A metallic print intensifies the glamorous feel of this romantic one-shoulder Rayna Dress. Delicate pleating lends a Grecian look to the bustier bodice, while dense ruching gives the skirt volume and movement. What’s not to love?
