Having just launched their AW15 collection, full of new season LBDs and festive show-stopping dresses, Little Black Dress is always ready to party, whatever the occasion!
So what is a cocktail dress? Emma Nattrass-Daniels, Team LBD’s Content Manager, explains that for her, a cocktail dress is “a dress that is both fun and fabulous. It HAS to have a quirky, fun little edge, like a feather trim, a slight sparkle or an unexpected frill. Cocktails usually mean an evening out with the girls to a cool new bar, which is always fun, so you have to up the ante with your dress choice”.
Cocktail dresses no longer indicate a formal affair, rather a fabulous occasion to dress up and get out of your usual 9-5 attire. An excuse (if ever we needed one) to buy a new dress and heels and head out on the town and sample fresh new cocktails or savour tasty classics in great company.
There’s always an excuse for a cocktail or two, but with London Cocktail Week, we have a whole week of cocktail dress worthy events.
Accompany your Saturday Absolut classic cocktails masterclass with a timeless black cocktail dress. A simple shape with a surprising sheer panel or fun embellishment leaves you to concentrate on mastering the art of the perfect Cosmopolitan or Martini. Or impress attendees at the fitting Cocktails at Tiffany’s with a twist on the little black dress. Hosted by the LCW Boutique Cinema, the ‘Cocktail Senses Cinema Club’ will be screening the ultimate fashion flick Breakfast at Tiffany’s whilst surprising viewers with culinary treats and cocktails to match moments throughout the film.
Or match the decadence of the 1920s inspired Tanqueray Art Deco Bar with a flapper infused cocktail dress, we appreciate any occasion whereby a flapper dress is required – it’s the epitome of fabulous!
