Outfit Inspiration for Summer Cocktail Parties

While the distinction may be very subtle, the mode of dressing for a summer cocktail party greatly differs from that of any other season. Summer cocktail parties are the perfect occasion to break out your favorite white day dress and embellish it for a night look. Normally one may gravitate towards a tight LBD or a sequined dress for such a gathering, and fail to recognize that even the simplest of dresses can be perfected by the addition of fabulous accessories. 

Our summer cocktail look has been based around a summer palette of cream, gold, and bronze. We've selected a Vero Moda tube party dress paired with Christian Louboutin 120mm Follies Fishnet Pumps with a gold heel and a dark orange sole. While the lace and skater skirt of the dress constitute a day look, the stilettos transition the dress to evening wear. 

As you can see, this look would not be complete without the addition of Shop2Chic jewelry and accessories! We've selected a statement necklace and a designer-inspired beige envelope bag. Statement necklaces are the perfect way to highlight the cut of your dress, whether it be a low or high neckline. The bluntness of this necklace counteracts the casual quality of the dress, making the outfit more appropriate for an evening of sipping cocktails and socializing. The envelope bag has a golden trim and chain to match the necklace and base of the Louboutins. In an outfit like this you'll be even more weary not to spill your cocktail!
