Style Notes chevron icon

Add a touch of drama to your cocktail ensemble with this dress by Karen Millen. Cut in a flattering fit-and-flare shape, it features black velvet applique embroidered onto a fine tulle mesh. Partially lined with a strapless blush pink underlay, the semi-sheer yoke shows off just the right amount of skin. Finished with scalloped cuffs and a Victorian-inspired neckline, rent this for a dinner date.

  • Black velvet applique on fine mesh
  • Paneled skirt with fluted hem
  • Semi-sheer yoke with scalloped cuffs and high neckline

This dress looks beautiful on all body types. The cut draws in the waist and skims off the hips for the perfect cocktail silhouette. Keep it simple with a black heel and a matte black clutch to store all your essentials – let the intricate applique be the focus! Read our blog post for the ultimate cocktail event style guide.
