Good news: 2019 has brought some classic and fun choices. Here’s a short list of the biggest trends in fashionable cocktail dresses.

First and foremost: Your best choice is always to wear what’s right for your personal style, shape, and comfort. However, here are some basics that will get you headed in the right direction.

3 Fashionable Cocktail Dresses

  • The Classic Little Black Dress

This one never goes out of style. Ever. The little black dress has been around for generations, although it slightly changes form from season to season. Adding black stockings, a great pair of black heels, and the simplest necklace will create a slimming, striking, classic silhouette.

Whether it’s 2019 or 2025, you can be sure that the little black dress will always be trending.

  • Express Yourself with Bold Colored Dress

If you want to stand out from the little black dress cocktail crowd, why not do it with color? You can add just a pop of contrast by adding a colorful necklace and earrings to a basic black dress or even wearing a great pair of cherry red stilettos.

Or, you can really be daring and go for a royal blue, emerald green, or shocking pink cocktail dress. Would you like a more subtle shade? Try sky blue, heather gray, or beautiful champagne color. And if you’re in the mood for patterns, there are plenty of choices this year, too. Don’t be shy. Why not go for it? Whatever your selection, you’re sure to be noticed.

  • Length and Fit: Maxi, Mini, Backless, and Of-Shoulder Dresses

Regardless of your shape, you’ll be glad to know 2019 has brought plenty of great choices for both length and fit. Want to show off an amazing pair of legs? You’re in luck. There is an array of short dresses, just hot off the runway. Do you prefer a look that covers a bit more? You’re also in luck; soft, draping fabrics with slightly longer hemlines are also big this year.

If you’d prefer a bit more leg coverage, consider sporting an off-the-shoulders or a low back dress — just to keep things interesting. You simply can’t go wrong. Your choices for 2019 are endless. So, go shopping, get dressed up, and head out to have fun. You deserve it!

Black Dress

Accessories for trendy cocktail dresses

It’s always considered fashionable to be understated, but If your personality is bold, go for it. A classic black cocktail dress is always perfect with a strand of vintage pearls. But, there are plenty of other options if you want to dazzle the crowd. A glitzy faux diamond bracelet and a pair of dangling earrings will definitely add attention to your entrance.

Stunning cocktail purses are also in demand this year — from solid satin finishes, soft supple leather, to glitzy sequin finishes, you’ll find them everywhere.

The bottom line is — accessories can make or break a great cocktail dress. So, check out the 2019 selections and find what works best to enhance your personal style. Experiment a bit and you’re sure to pull off a great trendy, stylish look.
