Are you looking for a beautiful dress for your next cocktail party or even a formal event? If you’re bored with all the costumes or sexy dresses you see everywhere at cocktail parties, you’ll probably like what I’m going to talk about today, the cape dress, something unique and beautiful. The coolest and most obvious feature of a cape dress is the fact that the cape dress covers your arms without actually having sleeves. To show you how to style it, I have collected some really nice cape dress outfit ideas and I am going to show it to you now.
Black cape shift mini dress with strappy heels
A cape dress is something very unique and beautiful in itself. To build a great looking outfit, you don’t have to complicate things at all. Just wear a nice pair of shoes and an optional necklace. As an example, you can wear a black cape sheath dress with black strappy heels for a simple yet elegant look.
Navy Cape Sheath Midi Dress
For a slightly more casual look, you might want to choose a pleated cape dress. For example, here is a navy blue cape midi dress that looks nice and casual. Just pair it with light pink open toe heels to complete the outfit in a feminine way.
White cape shift dress with light pink heels
If you want to look beautiful and stand out at a cocktail party, you can either wear something very sexy and fancy, or you can wear something counterintuitive and refreshing. For example, you can wear a white cape shift mini dress with light pink heels for a feminine and refreshing outfit.
Blush pink lace mermaid dress
As you have seen from the previous outfits, turning a cape into a mini or knee length cape dress is very natural for fashion designers. Having a maxi cape dress is counterintuitive, but nonetheless, this particularly blush pink mermaid dress is a rare and beautiful exception. Simply pair it with a silver open toe ankle strap to complete the outfit.
Black semi-sheer V-neck cape mini dress
If you’re familiar with cocktail dresses, you should already know that the fabric or texture of the dress makes a big difference. For example, if you want to look feminine and elegant, a black chiffon v-neck mini dress is a great choice. Pair them with black suede ballet flats for an extra sophisticated touch.
Royal blue cold shoulder dress
For those of you who go to cocktail parties a lot, having a variety of styles is a lot more fun than sticking to the same black cocktail dress every time, even if the black dress suits you well. Here is a cocktail dress that looks really bright and should create a new style for you. It’s a royal blue cape dress with a cold shoulder. You can simply pair it with white heels to complete this eye-catching outfit.
Navy Deep V Neck Wrap Cape Mini Dress
Here’s a more mature look. At first glance, it’s also like wearing a navy suit. It is actually a very classy and elegant navy cape mini dress. You can simply pair it with black open toe heels with ankle straps to complete the outfit in a simple and elegant way.
Red cape shift dress with black ballet heels
Looking minimal or simple doesn’t mean you can’t be eye-catching. One way to really shine, among other things, is to wear something light, like this bright red shift dress. You can simply wear it with a pair of black ballet flats and a statement necklace to complete this minimalist and attractive look.
Blue mini dress with open strappy heels
Sometimes the subtle difference between a decent outfit and a good one lies in a few subtle details. One detail to pay attention to is how the shoes are paired with the dress. A pair of blue strappy sandals paired with a blue mini cape shift dress is chosen as a good example of wearing the right shoes.
White pleated chiffon maxi dress with silver sequin details
While this pleated white chiffon maxi dress is probably not formal enough to be worn as a formal wedding dress, it should be perfect for wedding photos. The dress has some silver sequin details that make it more elegant and attractive. Just pair the dress with silver open toe heels and you can take amazing photos.
Semi-Sheer Cape Dress with Brown Belt

Gray cape midi dress with faux neckline and white heels
Although many dresses have been mentioned that are cut very similar to this gray dress, the use of colors for this outfit really makes this outfit stand out from the rest. For this outfit, the gray cape dress is paired with white heels and a light pink leather clutch for a fresh and minimal look.
White Lace Cape Boydcon Midi Dress
This dress is also a two-layer dress, with the inner layer being a white mini dress and the outer layer being a semi-sheer lace cape dress. You can easily combine this beautiful dress with heeled sandals to complete the outfit.
Neon pink cape dress
The easiest way to create an eye-catching look is to wear shocking pink. For example, you can wear this shocking pink dress with light pink pointed toe heels to look feminine and pretty.
