Max Studio Silk Chiffon Cocktail Dress

Max Studio Silk Chiffon Cocktail Dress in Black

This Max Studio Silk Chiffon Cocktail Dress is a baby doll style little black dress. Sleeveless, it has asymmetrical stretchy satin shoulder straps for an eyecatching necklin. The straps also edge the bodice and wrap around the waist. The bodice is ruched and the skirt is light and floaty, made from light-as-a-feather soft silk chiffon.

It is fully  lined and is short, falling to mid to upper thigh, although it will look slightly longer on a girl of average height than it does on the leggy model to the right.

It fits true to size.

Fabric and Care: 100% silk; dry clean only.

Style note: This is a gorgeously flattering little black silk dress that would be perfect to wear for parties and soirées over the festive season. Easy to accessorise, complete the look with black stiletto heels and a matching clutch. The model has accessorised with a pair of black evening gloves to make the dress her own and worn dark tights, but it would look equally good with pale or nude tights if you have the legs for it.

Mango have an amazing collection of party and cocktail dress for the new 2011 Autumn Winter season. There are more than sixty dresses to choose from, ranging in price from just over £20 up to £180, so there really is something to suit all tastes and budgets.

In this article, I’m going to describe some of my personal favourites from the collection. However, if you want to browse them directly yourself at Mango, here’s the link: Mango Party Dresses

Mango Wrap Silk Dress

Be pretty in pale peach with the Mango Wrap Silk Dress, a sleeveless wrap dress in silk which has a v neck and v back and falls to about knee length. There is pleat detail to the front with ruffle embellishment to the shoulders.

On the waist, there is a belt which is embellished with a series of shiny stud appliqué detail. The belt can be removed for an alternative look.

I like this dress because it’s a flattering and easy to wear style, yet very pretty and feminine. Complete the outfit with a pair of nude heeled court shoes.

Mango Sleeveless Leather Shift Dress

The Mango Sleeveless Leather Shift Dress is a sleeveless, above the knee leather dress which has a scoop neck, concealed back zip fastening and panel detail.

It’s a smart and sexy style, and perfect for on and off duty looks. Complete the look with a pair of towering black leather heels and a mini gold box clutch and you’re sorted for your night out.

Mango Vintage Style Dress

Mango Vintage Style Dress

Mango Vintage Style Dress

The Mango Vintage Style Dress is an interesting style. Far from being vintage, to me it has more of a futuristic look about it, with the metallic sequin embellishment to the shoulders and waist. I love the way the sequins give the dress an almost armoured look, when it is in fact lovely and soft.

The dress has cap sleeves, a v neck  and falls to just above the knee.

Complete the outfit with a pair of nude heels, such as Mango’s Shiny Pumps in shade “make-up”, and the Hard-structured clutch handbag in gold.

Mango Strapless Mini Dress

Mango Strapless Mini Dress

You gotta love the Mango Strapless Mini Dress, a white bandeau style mini dress with black stars embellished with shiny black sequins.

Being monochrome, it will go with anything accessory wise, although I think it would look good teamed with Mango’s black leather peep toe platform court shoes and the black Channel style quilted handbag.

Vince Ring Sequin Tunic Cocktail Dresses from my-wardrobe.com

my-wardrobe.com have a range of cocktail and party dresses for the new season that will make you look absolutely gorgeous this festive season. Glam and glitter is in the air, inspired by the current desire for everything 1970s. There are sequins and lurex prints in abundance.

Also big this season are leather looks, as part of the new “fetish” trend. Check out the leather dresses by Theory and the strappy bondage inspired boots by Bionda Castana. Lace is also big news, so if leather is not your thing, check out the feminine lacy ensembles, mostly in dramatic black, that are big with designers such as D&G and Love Moschino.

My Favourites

If you’re after glitz and glamour though, I’ve picked out three of my own personal favourites for the new season.

Vince Ring Sequin Tunic Dress

The Vince Ring Sequin Tunic, pictured above right, is a tunic which has been embellished all over with large, ring shaped sequins in antique silver and gold. It’s so easy to wear – it just pulls on over the head to fit, and it is fully lined. You can cinch the waist for a different look if you choose.  You can also wear the dress on its own, or over leggings so there are lots of options. Don’t expect it to stay on the shelves for long.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Panther Lurex Shift Dress Marc by Marc Jacobs Panther Lurex Shift Dress

I’m a fan of Marc by Marc Jacobs anyway, but I have to say, that this lurex panther dress ticks all my boxes. This navy jacquard dress has a funky all over panther design in bronze, making this a shift dress with a difference.

Team it with towering metallic heels and a clutch for an enviable cocktail outfit.

Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Sequin Dress Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Sequin Dress

This Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Dress is perfect for the party season. The all over shiny sequin embellishment gives the dress a great texture and a look of pure luxury, and a simple pair of black heels completes the look perfectly.

I like the multicoloured sequins – they are different shades of purple and black and there is an exposed silver coloured zip fastening centre back. The dress is also a little stretchy for a perfect fit.

Alice by Temperley Cocktail Dress

Alice by Temperley Cocktail Dress in Black

This Alice by Temperley Cocktail Dress is a sheer black dress with tapework and silver sequin detail. The sleeves,  upper back and shoulders are completely sheer, but the dress has a black slip lining to spare your blushes.

The dress is an empire line and sits above the knee at about mid thigh; it has a zip fastening at the side and fits true to size.

It is available in UK sizes 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14

Fabric and Care: 100% polyester; lining 95% polyester, 5% elastane; dry clean only..

Style note: This little black cocktail dress is a confection of sheer detail, sequins and tapework patterns, all in an empire line dress which is shaped to flatter virtually every figure. No, your tum won’t look big in this dress 🙂 Complete the look with pale tights, vertiginous stilettos and a silver box clutch – the Halston Heritage Susan jewelled clutch would look good.
