Black Cocktail Dresses, Always in Style


We are wanting a dress with glamour and punch this New Year's eve. Designers are showing styles that seem so retro that we found a few in the shop to fit the bill.
All are black, of course, since that seems to be everyone's first choice. But these are not your average "little black dress".

This first black velvet dress from the 1980's has a magnificant bow that is accented by rhinestones in front where the long chiffon cascade scarf flows out from the empire waistline. An entrance making outfit if ever there was one!


A round cut-out back high lights the second dress. This 1980's velvet is ready for parties. That striking back emphasis is perfect for ballrooms and hotel lobbies. Tangos and slow dancing would show off this feature as well.

The third outfit bears a striking resemblence to the famous white dress Marilyn Monroe wore over the air vent in "The Seven Year Itch". That icon of glamour was designed by the costumer and fashion designer Travilla. It is still a very wearable classic today. With the halter neckline and Grecian waist ties our slinky black jersey version is a perfect fit for showing off curves this New Year's eve.
