It’s the holiday season, a time marked by parties and get-togethers with friends, family, and coworkers. If you’re planning a festive night out on the town, you’ll want to look your best, and nothing gives you more confidence than a fabulous dress. These days there are endless options, and many of them feel like they’re designed for a younger crowd. To help you find the perfect dress for your occasion, we put together a list of our favorite cocktail dresses for older women.
We started by considering the categories we wanted to address with our list. Off the shoulder, glittery, glamorous… the options were seemingly endless. When it came right down to it, though, we decided that our favorite (and the simplest approach) was to consider long-sleeve vs. short-sleeve dress options. With the cold weather outside, it seemed a great way to allow some flexibility in your dress to suit the weather and will enable you to show off a beautiful new shawl or cardigan. Also, by not limiting it too much, you’ll see we found a wealth of fabrics, fits, prices, colors, and, well, everything in between.
Before you head out to the store to wander the aisles for hours, check out our top cocktail dress options. You’re bound to find something that makes you look – and feel – your very best.
