Cocktail dresses and accessories that'll wow at the wedding

Bridal season is upon us and according to United States wedding statistics published by the website, 2.6 million nuptials are expected to take place throughout the year 2022. This growth in wedding events is a direct reflection of postponed or newly initiated marriages deferred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It was only two years ago when we wouldn’t dream of participating in group gatherings or even small celebrations for that matter. Now that pandemic restrictions have eased, people are chomping at the bit to socialize and of course, jump the broom.

The increase in weddings and other social events naturally sparks an uptick in the need for fabulous cocktail dresses and other accessories to wear. Sure, you could make due by pulling something to wear from deep inside the back of your closet but who wants to do that?

Oversized scarves are a great addition to a cocktail dress as a shawl or train.

Hell, it’s been two years since anyone has seen us in an ensemble that didn’t include fleece joggers or yoga pants so in celebration of our new found freedom to accept invitations to special events, women are hunting for cocktail dresses and accessories that wow at the wedding.

And there are so many cocktail dress options to choose from. Woman can choose from an array of high/low hemlines, soft cotton candy colors, Bridgerton floral prints, lace or sequins and iridescent satins. There are fit and flare silhouettes, pencil thin bodycon designs or sleeveless tank dresses with scoop necklines or low plunge. With this breadth and depth of assortment, there’s generally no mention of our need for comfort chic.
