It’s the season of parties and celebrations, weddings and festivities. Think of all the cocktail parties you will need to sprint off to while making sure you stun people at each one of them! That’s a lot of work, and it’s best you begin preparing early.
Cocktail parties are all about the glitz and the glamor, the sexiness and the sensuous appeal. It’s all about the expensive clothes and stunning accessories. Bold, sexy and extremely feminine. With fashion evolving with the seasons, it also helps to know what’s in and what’s ‘so last year’. Here are our top five ultimate party looks which you can flaunt this year.
The quintessential LBD:
LBDs (Little Black Dress) have been around since the 1920s, when Coco Chanel first published a picture of it and introduced it to us. You can never go wrong with an LBD. Accessorize them with a pair of stilettos and gorgeous neckpieces and you are good to go. And of course, subtle makeup.

The upcoming jumpsuits:
Jumpsuits have suddenly garnered so much attention, it will be a sacrilege to ignore this trend. Jumpsuits look sexy and naughty and are available in so many different styles, it’s mind-boggling. Jumpsuits require minimalist jewellery – a dazzling bracelet or a pair of dainty earrings is usually all that it needs.

The ethereal gowns:
You can never go wrong with a gown. But for cocktail parties, stick to demure, fish-tail, mermaid style gowns, which are more body hugging. Flared gowns may not be the best choice for cocktail parties. Chunky necklaces with sweetheart necklines or gorgeous earrings with a one-shoulder gown – what could go wrong? Absolutely nothing!

The glitzy anarkalis:
The best thing about Indian attires – you can go big with jewellery. The bigger, chunkier, heavier, the better. For cocktails parties related to weddings, anarkalis suits are one of the best options. They are glitzy and elegant without being too OTT. Wear earrings like balis and jhumkas with them and fashion your hair such that your face and the earrings are highlighted.
