Let's Get The Party Started!

Top cocktail Dress styles to get you dancing til dawn

You’ve got the invite, you’ve saved the date, now you’re all about perfecting your party look. From cocktail dresses and little black dresses to eveningwear classics and all that shimmies in between, take a look at the top party dress styles that’ll get you set to dance ‘til dawn.

For The Frill Of It

The bigger the frill, the bigger the thrill – think dresses with full skirts and ruffle hemlines to create a look of feminine wonder. A ‘Frills and Thrills’ style dress is all about movement, whether it’s the vivacity of a frilled skirt as you sashay to the buffet or a pop of print in the afternoon sun.


DRESSES To twirl In

Maximise your twirl potential with the sassy Maree Dress in Navy. A wrap dress style, Maree's cocktail look holds at the waist with a belt tie. The queen of fit & flare dresses, this wrap dress is fitted through the bodice before kicking loose over the legs with an A-line skirt that drapes to the knees.

Style Tip: Bring dark shades and solid colours to life with accessories that pop - think bubblegum pink, cobalt blue or a glitter of metallic silver or gold.

Dresses In Print

A wrap dress with 3/4 sleeves, the Oona Dress fits and flatters when you’re ready to let loose! Elegantly framing the decolletage, the wrap front creates a sensuous sweetheart neckline while fitted sleeves streamline the arms. In the opulent Tassel print, with it's flashes of lipstick red, bubblegum pink and glitzy gold, the Oona Dress is fun-loving and fancy free!

Wear for afternoon and sunset events and play up the Tassel print's pops of colour. Or create an eye-catching cocktail or evening look with glamorous gold accessories.

Style Tip: Crank up the music, karaoke those classics and make your getting ready rituals part of the fun!

A classic cut, the Oona Dress translates perfectly from 'popping in print' to 'timeless elegance' in black and navy. A fit and flare dress, Oona's designed to flatter every size and curve. From playful pockets and the luxurious tucks that finish the 3/4 sleeves to the demure midi-length hemline, every detail has been curated to ensure an elegant dress whether you're petite or plus size, curvy or sleight, small or tall.

The Red Carpet Reveller

The mood of the ‘Red Carpet Reveller’ is all about occasionwear that oozes A-list glamour. Give the occasion some old-school style and play up your curves because this look is all about womanly charms.


Channel some Sharon Stone-style sex appeal with the crisp cut of the Etta Dress. A fixed-wrap dress, Etta is designed to flatter. A crossover front securely contours the bust while a sunray of ruching through the waist veils the tummy. Dress the straight skirt and sleek ¾ sleeves with sharp stilettoes and a burst of bold lipstick.

Curvaceous Glamour

A wrap dress with straight-cut, tulip hem skirt, the Heather Dress is a sassy dress that works for weddings, cocktail parties and fabulous going out style!

With long slender sleeves, the Heather Dress is the ultimate proof that dresses with sleeves can absolutely be sexy. Powering up the shoulders, gathered sleeveheads add definition to slim the silhouette and balance curves. Ruched details at the cuffs meanwhile add a little touch of 80s glamour to coax out your inner diva.
