Designer Cocktail Dresses
Elegant, sleek and perfect for semi and formal occasions, a designer cocktail dress is the life of the party. Typically a knee-length party dress, there are a huge variety of styles and brands of cocktail dresses at thredUP by some of the world's most celebrated designers like BCBG by Max Azria and quirky, fun and chic designer Betsey Johnson.
Always go for heels when accessorizing your designer cocktail dress, and avoid flats. Go for a full-length designer cocktail dress for a black-tie formal event, and a spicy little knee-length number for more casual occasions. Dresses are BCBGMAXAZRIA's bread and butter and a sheer black cocktail dress is sure to turn heads at every event.
Designer A-line Dress
Have you considered an A-line designer dress? A-lines are universally the most flattering style of designer dress. This one dress style flatters nearly every figure and looks good on every unique woman's form. The complimentary cut of an A-line designer dress cinches at the waist to help hide a curvier shape, yet gracefully flares out toward the hem, gliding away from the hips and thighs to gently emphasize a slimmer figure.
The trick to the perfect A-line designer dress is finding the right length. If you're on the smaller side, opt for a shorter hemline and if you're taller than most ladies, go for a mid-length A-line. An A-line designer dress by Betsey Johnson, with over 30 years creating her signature offbeat style, is perfect for the office, or for casual wear with a sleeveless, scoop neckline dress.
The Infamous Little Black Dress
A little black designer dress with a bit of an edge by BCBGMAXAZRIA can always be counted on to deliver a more upscale best-dressed look with hardly any effort at all. Making a little black dress stand out is tricky when you want to shine like a star, so choose a designer little black dress from Max Azria that's guaranteed to look youthful, but not cutesy.
