Shop Now: Sexy Cocktail Dresses


When the heat and humidity hit, jeans take a backseat to sundresses for our everyday uniform. But much as we love a cute and casual little dress, when it comes to cocktail hour, the bar must be raised.

Chiffon, crepe, silk, georgette—these cocktail numbers are perfect for for after-dark engagements, particularly when paired with a killer heel and some statement jewelry. Constricting? With ever-climbing summer temperatures, no thanks—but that doesn’t mean they can’t be sexy.

Try Lanvin’s pleats of gold or a plunging cowl-necked option from dress master DvF. Theory’s flowing maxidress may be a summertime go-to, while Zero+Maria Cornejo’s printed tunic dress is a funkier take on after-five fare.
