A great way to dress feminine for a cocktail party or prom is by wearing a bodycon dress. This will make your curves more obvious. Even for bodycon dresses without a sexy backless or deep V-neckline, the skinny-fit cut just makes them look cautiously sexy. If you are looking for more depth and elegance in your dress, wearing a velvet bodycon dress should be a good choice. For this blog post, I’ve rounded up some of the best velvet bodycon dress outfit ideas and I’m going to share them with you now.

To start the list, I show you a burgundy velvet short sleeve bodycon dress, a very typical bodycon dress that you would normally see at a cocktail party or prom. To style the dress wear it with black heels with ankle straps and a silver cuff chain for a very simple yet elegant look. This relatively demure outfit is perfect for those of you who don’t want to draw too much attention at a party and still want to look good.
