What Does Cocktail Attire Mean For A Woman?

Cocktail attire for women is considered outfits you can wear to parties, happy hours, or semi-formal occasions. The main difference between formal and cocktail attire is cocktail outfits can be more casual-chic and not as dressy as formal wear. Semi-formal dresses including mini and midi styles, jumpsuits, catsuits, rompers, fashionable tops, dress pants, and faux leather pants are all cocktail attire options. You can wear cocktail attire to a wedding as a guest, such as a chic jumpsuit, a flirty romper, a satin midi dress, or a ruched mini dress. For a more formal wedding, women should lean more toward a long dress rather than a short sexy cocktail dress. Along with floor-length dresses, other women's apparel that is not considered cocktail attire includes denim, shorts, sundresses, or attire that would be considered even too casual for work.

Can A Woman Wear Pants For Cocktail Attire?

Women can definitely wear pants for cocktail attire, as long as they are more of a dressier style and are not denim. Women’s pants for work, such as slacks, dress pants, and faux leather pants can all be worn to a cocktail party. Style pants with a chic top like a wrap-front blouse or an embellished crop top and finish your cocktail look with strappy heels. A jumpsuit can also be cocktail attire. With either a wide leg or a tapered leg style you capture attention with your chic one-piece look. Discover one shoulder, cold shoulder, and sleeveless jumpsuits as your new go-to cocktail staple. Explore trendy features on pants like paperbag waist, skinny fits, and tapered hems that make them dressy attire. Tie front and belted waists are a trendy feature on women’s pants and jumpsuits that make them a stylish option for cocktail parties.
