But before we delve into must-have outfits of summer, let’s unravel the mysteries of cocktail dresses. 

What are Cocktail Dresses?

As per the standard definition, a cocktail dress is an outfit, usually a short one, suitable for formal occasions.

In Jean Arthur’s words from The Ex-Mrs. Bradford, it’s something to spill cocktails on. Are they? Seriously? 

Of course not.

Sadly, there isn’t one definition to describe these outfits. But the good news is that you can define them to suit your personality and taste of fashion. You can wear cocktail dresses for weddings, formal occasions, birthday parties, office events, and where not.
