We Love: 10 Draped Cocktail Dresses

Friday December 3, 2010 by Hafsa


Shopping for special occasion dresses is fun but can be challenging to find something you'll be able to wear again.  We've covered fabric trends of Velvet and Gold Brocade which are hot for Holiday 2010, but for a truly transitional look we're looking to the draped styles that the Spring/Summer 2011 fashion weeks tell us will stick.

A.F. Vandevorst, Doo.Ri, Elie Saab
Halston, Vera Wang, J. Mendel 

Play with textures and fabrics for a fusion of soft femininity and edgy-chic:
Emma Roberts, Freida Pinto, Rihanna (in Lanvin)

We're taking a rich colour and sumptuous texture approach to this trend for Holiday 2010:

Arden B. One Shoulder Mesh Drape Dress US$49.99 (sale), Alice + Olivia One Shoulder-Draped Mini Dress US$185.50 (sale)

Toga One-Shoulder Cocktail Dress in Cream US$42, B.Darlin Draped One-Shoulder Dress US$69

Asos Heavy Drape and Fold Body-Conscious Dress US$112.06, DKNY Slinky Drape Front Dress US$99

TIBI V-Neck Drape Dress US$430, Rachel Pally Cowl Dress US$198

I really like the Halston and Freida Pinto one. They look so goddess-y like, so so pretty!
