While many people like to dress sexy for cocktail parties and proms, you can dress low to stand out from the crowd without showing a lot of skin. A good option is to wear a green velvet dress. Not only is the color of dark green or emerald green deep in itself, the velvet fabric adds another dimension to the depth of the dress. For this blog post, I have collected some of the best green velvet dress outfit ideas and I am going to share them with you now.
Emerald Green Velvet Flare Dress with Converse High Top
Most green velvet dresses are suitable for cocktail parties and proms. But I’ll start off the list with a little surprise by sharing this casual outfit with you. To achieve this beautiful casual look, you can wear an emerald long sleeve velvet dress with a pair of black and white high-top converse. It’s a minimalist casual outfit that looks super chic and is perfect for dating and dining.
Green high split velvet maxi dress
Now let’s move on to a dress that you can wear elegantly to a prom or a cocktail party. It is a green velvet high split maxi dress. It also has a sexy deep V-neckline. To style this dress elegantly, wear a pair of silver open toe heels to complete the outfit.
Strapless green velvet midi dress
Sometimes you don’t have to have the perfect body figure to look sexy. If you have nice shoulders and collarbones, you can probably pull off this green velvet midi dress for a sexy look. Wear it with a black choker and black gladiator sandals to add a classy touch to the overall look.
Green long-sleeved skater dress with a deep V-neckline
When you cut a skater dress it looks kinda cute. But when it’s a dark green long sleeve green velvet skater dress with a sexy deep V-neckline, it becomes a very feminine and sexy dress. For the shoes, wear silver heels with open toes and ankle straps. Finish off with a gold statement necklace for a slightly powerful and aggressive look. This is the perfect outfit for bosses and managers when attending an official company event such as an annual dinner.
Knee-length wrap dress in green velvet
If you like dresses with creative cuts, here is one you might like. It’s a knee length green velvet wrap dress that also features a subtle high cut. Like many other wrap dresses, this wrap dress is a deep V-neck dress. You can simply wear it with black heels.
Green velvet midi dress
One of the reasons I really like the midi dress is that it’s usually an understated yet gorgeous dress that’s perfect for introverts to a cocktail party. Still, this deep V-neck green velvet midi dress isn’t that understated. Combine the dress with pink heels for this elegant look.
Green velvet maxi dress with silver collar
The green velvet maxi dress is quite similar to the previous one except that it is a maxi dress. But this outfit is a better demonstration of what accessories to wear with the dress. To style the dress, wear it with silver ankle strap sandals and a silver choker to add character to the outfit.
Green three quarter skater dress with high boots
Having just shared some cocktail party dresses with you, let’s look at one that you can wear more casually for scenarios like dating and girls’ night out. Here is a green three quarter skater dress that looks pretty and elegant. Pair it with pink heels for a pretty outfit. But let’s make the outfit look more feminine by wearing black suede over the knee boots.
Green wrap skater dress with a deep V neckline
To style this green long sleeve deep V-neck skater dress, you can wear it with a pair of silver open toe heels. Wear a long statement silver necklace to take this outfit to the next level. This is one of those outfits that feels just right for a cocktail party. It’s neither overly flashy nor overly sexy. It’s spot on.
Green Velvet Skater Dress with Silver Heels
If you’re not in great shape but still want to look good for a cocktail party, no problem, especially if you still have nice legs. Let’s wear this green long sleeve skater dress that covers everything but the legs. Wear silver open heels to complete the outfit with elegance.
High-split, floor-length wrap dress
Up to this point I have always recommended that you wear the silver heels to match the green velvet dresses. I really think this is the best option but the pink and nude heels will work as an alternative. For example, wear a green high-split maxi wrap dress with nude heels for a relatively demure look.
Cold Shoulder Green Velvet Bodycon Dress
If you want to look sexy for a cocktail party but think even a strapless dress is way too far out of your comfort zone for you? How about a cold shoulder green velvet bodycon dress? You can wear it with black suede ankle strap heels and a silver statement chain for that understated sexy look.
Deep V neck fit and flare dress with black choker
When wearing a deep V-neck dress like this fit and flare dress, wearing a necklace is usually a good idea to balance out the sexy cut. Alternatively, you can also wear a choker. For this outfit, a black choker and a pair of black open toe heels are chosen to pair with the beautiful green dress.
Green velvet shift dress with felt hat
Here’s a more creative way to style a green velvet dress. In this case it is a green velvet shirt dress. Wear it with a white fedora and a pair of black strappy ballet flats to complete this refreshing look.
Green sweetheart neckline midi bodycon dress
For those of you who have beautiful curves, here is a dress that will make you stand out from the crowd at a cocktail party. It is a green bodycon midi dress with a sweetheart neckline. Just pair it with light pink heels to complete the outfit.
I hope you enjoy seeing all these beautiful green velvet dresses. They really aren’t that difficult to style and they are definitely not difficult to create. Let’s try them on and have fun styling.
