Style Stalker: Cocktail Dresses

Going on a lunch date, out to dinner or somewhere fancy? Don't know what to wear? A cocktail dress is the perfect solution to your problems! Its an easy look yet still very stunning. Here are two glamorous outfits to two give you some style inspiration:
Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova's style is fresh and elegant. If this is the look you're going for, here are a few tips: 
1.) A striking design: Embellished designs make the dress pop and draws your attention to the center. 
2.) Pick a dress with an original cut: This dress has a shorter version of a train in the back and I love it! 
3.) Wear minimum accessories: A simple earring and ring work well with this look because the dress is bold.  
4.) Add a colorful shoe: Maria adds ruby red slippers to top off the look. 
Did you notice the hint of red in Maria's earrings matches her red shoes?

Diane Kruger created her own signature look with this outfit. If you're going for a classic look these tips are for you:
1.) Classic and trendy: Diane mixed classic pieces with new trends and that is what drew me to this look. The dress is classic but her spiked shoes are trendy. Remember the spikes and studs article?
2.) Color variety: Diane doesn't just use one or even two colors, she uses variations of the color blue. The pieces fit together because they are shades of dark to light blue.  
3.) Fitted waist: If you want to accent your waist, pick a dress that is fitted at the waist with a flared bottom. I love the bottom of this dress.

Where will you be wearing your cocktail dress?

  5. I like totally and agree. And I think that in order to be comfortable with your style is to wear it more often. So wear your style to the lab on days that you don't have to do anything bloody, muddy or otherwise gross!
