Cocktail hour!

Exams are now over (for those of us studying anyway) and we have a long and beautiful summer ahead of us.

Now seems like a better time than ever to round up all the girls and get the cosmopolitans in! What to wear for the evening? A cute cocktail dress seems more than fitting.

Scouring the internet, I have found a lovely selection from Designer Desirables, in colours and styles to suit the most hard to please lady. It is time to get those pins out girls and this is for women only!

They offer a huge variety of A - Z brand names. The prices are reasonable, with lots of affordable and designer labels to suit any budget. You can shop by department, brand, trend, colour and they even have a section dedicated to items that are £50 and under, what a steal! While additionally offering free next day delivery!

Searching for my perfect dress I find there is lots of peplum on offer, proving to be a very big trend this summer. The beautifully fitted, stretch midi pencil dress seems to be just perfect for a sophisticated evening.

The navy Tempest Sira Dress has an open back with lovely cream satin lining, offering a classic contrast and a clinched in peplum waist, finished off with long delicate satin ties to the back, creating a sophisticated vintage look to suit any occasion.

The Designer Desirables own Gold & Black Sequin Embellished Skater Dress offers a sparkling mini style with a flattering rounded neck and capped sleeps. The waist is fitted to compliment, and it has a low back to elongate the shortest of ladies! The best part? It is covered in glittering gold and black sequins, you will be sure to stand out with all that shimmer.

The Pretty Dress Company Harvard Jade Green Arrowhead Neckline Pencil DressThe Harvard Jade Green Arrowhead Neckline Pencil Dress by the Pretty Dress Company is pretty and practical. Wear it during the daytime at the office then switch your heels to something a little fancier and you have the perfect cocktail dress! It is a soft green stretch material with a complimenting arrowhead shaped neckline, showing off all of your best assets while looking as presentable as ever!

Traffic People Dress Feathers At Dawn Sonny Silk Printed DressI just adore the Feathers At Dawn Sonny Silk Printed Dress by Traffic People. I am a big fan of long sleeved dresses, just as pretty, but giving you a bit of added warmth and comfort on a chilly night. This multi colored feathered design features a crossover gathered body and a deep v-neck design, letting the dress do all the talking, only minimalistic accessories needed here! Draped pleats run throughout  and it it features delicate and elegant  3/4 sleeves. Another perfect daytime to evening example.

Jessica Wright Melanie Lace & Peplum Navy Midi Dress
Another navy number comes with the glamourous Jessica Wright Melanie Lace & Peplum Navy Midi Dress, offering a pencil shaped skirt and beautifully detailed and pleated peplum waist. The lace detailing is wonderful following right down to the dresses 3/4 sleeves and high neckline. However, this cocktail hour choice is for the daring as the dress features not only a plunge neckline but a low V back also! Another statement, now all you have to decide is which you would like to make!

What do you think of these dresses? Do you have cocktail nights with your girl friends?
