At Rent Frock Repeat we believe the cocktail dress should be versatile. The connotation that cocktail dresses are only appropriate for the bar scene is just not true anymore, at least not with our designer dresses. We have number of cocktail-style dresses that are so much more than a one-hit-wonder for a single night out. Style these designer rentals thoughtfully and you can attend just about any event seamlessly.

This Metallic Tweed with Back Cut-Out Dress by Christian Siriano (Project Runway Winner) is a dress that speaks to all women. It has many appealing features, such as it’s front piping detail and it’s diamond cut-outs at the back. The champagne colour is a great neutral colour without being too bland. This is a number you can dress up easily or wear to work. It’s crewneck and mid-sleeves are modest and will accommodate a professional occasion.

While this dress has a classic shape it can be a part of a really fun and playful look. To achieve this, accessorize with the colour turquoise – it’s pairs well with the champagne and has a whimsical feel to it. For a night out try something bold like these Perelli Turquoise Sandals by Aldo.The stiletto heel, fun colour, and peep-toe are all ways to give this dress some pizazz.

If you can find a necklace to match bonus! This EVANGELINE NECKLACE by Towne & Reese matches flawlessly. It’s a statement necklace that isn’t too over-powering. If this isn’t enough bling for you feel free to add a cocktail ring that matches the gold hardware. We love this funky Gold Feather Open Ring by LeiVanKash.

If you want emphasis on these bold accessories we suggest slicking your hair back so there’s no distraction. A sleek high ponytail reads high fashion while a low ponytail reads more formal and sophisticated. Choose to go bold with the eye make up or lip colour. Winged eyeliner, or if you’d rather, a neon pink lip. Try Smashbox’s Be Legendary Lipstick in ‘SHOCK ME PINK’ for a show stopping colour.

If you are looking to achieve a more professional vibe begin with suede booties like this pair by Gianvito Rossi. You also pull off a bib style necklace in a gold hardware. The web design in this Scalloped Necklace by Oscar de la Renta is perfect for work. It’s subtle and not too flashy. A gold tone watch to match would be a nice touch. This Gramercy Mini Pavé Crystal, Mother-Of-Pearl & Goldtone Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch by Kate Spade is a great balance between feminine and powerful. It is beautifully detailed with shimmering crystal hour markers.

Keep make-up subtle and opt for a berry lip colour. Try Tarte’s Lip Tint in ‘Tempted’ for a perfectly matte lip. It has the moisture of a rich balm, so it won’t dry out quickly. As for hair a sleek, low ponytail or bun would be work appropriate and would allow a statement necklace to be seen. A glossy, straight do would look stunning as well.
