1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Tootsie Dress – Â£69
I am in love with this cocktail dress! As a boyish figured girl it’s essential for me find dresses the creates shape and the fitted waist with a flared skater skirt certainly would do that. The blue pattern is so beautiful and just when you think it can’t get any cuter you see the bow belt. It manages to ooze class and sophisticated while still being really fun. Plus I already own the perfect shoes and clutch bag to pair the dress with so it must be fate, right?
2. McQ by Alexander McQueen – Â£49
No list of dresses could be complete without a classic little black cocktail dress. The peplum shape makes it incredibly flattering, particularly to add the appearance of curves. The paneling detail gives it that extra oomph. I feel like this dress is quite flirtatious but still very classy.
3. Jovani Blue Sequin Dress – Â£59
I’m like a magpie to anything sparkly so imagine my delight when I saw this gorgeous boutique cocktail dress! It’s the kind of dress that would set you apart from the crowd and definitely turn heads. With so much sparkling on the dress there is no need to fuss about finding matching jewellery which makes it easy to style.
4. Rag and Bone Niki Flared Dress – Â£49
This probably the most simple of all the cocktail dresses online but it would be amazing for showing off your figure. The bright jungle green colour is what attracted me first then up close I love the detailed texture. Perfect for seamlessly moving from day to night!
5. Alice and Olivia Papina Dress – Â£49
The shape off this button up cocktail dress gives a nod to era’s once gone and the cut out detail brings it back to modern times. Pretty with a twist. I love that the big skirt would be perfect for dancing. I know I wouldn’t be able to resist twirling all night!

1. Carven Voluminous Skirt Dress – Â£59
Carven fluttered on to my radar a couple of years ago and this is a perfect example of why I love their cocktail dresses. The full skirt has a flattering 50’s flare without being too dressy- perfect for lunch with the girls.
2. Erdem Garzoni Dress – Â£109
Dark and deadly florals feature heavily for A/W13 and I plan on adding a bouquet or two to my wardrobe. No one holds a candle to Erdem when it comes to floral cocktail dresses – utterly beautiful.
3. Helmut Lang Shale Draped Dress – Â£49
Any girl with curves knows draping is her friend. Helmut Lang weaved his magic and creates form flattering cocktail dresses in cool palettes of smoky grey and subtle greens. Love!
4. See by Chloe Shirt Blouse Dress – Â£69
Most days I have to be prised out of my pyjamas, so this ‘off to bed’ trend is a firm fave of mine. The See by Chloe silk cocktail dress has the same relaxed vibe.
5. Â Issa Zebra Knit Dress – Â£49
Animal print is a tricky beast to tame, you can go from classy to brassy quicker than I can say ‘Liz McDonald’ (can’t beat a spot of Corrie). Personally I stick with zebra print as it’s easier to wear and mix with other pieces in my wardrobe.
