How To Pull Off A Cocktail Dress For Daytime

Since the point of a cocktail dress is basically to be able to throw it on and go, we know these flattering finds don’t need much embellishment for night. But ironically, dressing them down can take a bit more…dressing. Still, covered shoulders and flats can work wonders for dressing down a little (brown) dress like this BCBG Max Azria sheath ($232). Check out the options below for two ways to get the most out of your cocktail attire.

Try a piece that contrasts the dress’s feminine, flowing lines like this double-breasted cropped jacket ($550), which has crisp details like an inverted pleat at the back and tab detail on the cuffs. Steve Madden’s Seeri sandals ($49) and this double-chain pendant ($34) give the ensemble a hip, earthy vibe.

For a lighter, whiter look, throw a simple cotton cardigan ($58) over the dress, and pair with shell-and-bead accented sandals ($175) for a hint of beachwear chic. Banana Republic’s Greenwich Rattan Satchel ($178), made of straw and trimmed with leather, completes the summery style.
