If you’re going to a cocktail party anytime soon, this blog post should give you some cool insights into what to wear to it. For a fresh and youthful look, there’s nothing quite like a sleeveless mini cocktail dress. On the other hand, if you want to look ladylike, mature and elegant, you should choose a cocktail with sleeves instead. Styling is in fact not that difficult. It is enough to simply combine it with a nice pair of shoes. However, choosing the right dress for your body type and character is not that easy.
