[Editor's Picks Below]

Black Cocktail Dress Report

The classic "Little Black Dress" is a must-have for any woman's closet.  A perfect choice for dinner dates, art gallery openings, evenings at the opera, or that last-minute invitation to an old friend's cocktail party. They're also the perfect choice for formal dinner nights on cruise and resort vacations.  Performers are sometimes required to wear black dresses during concerts, especially in the classical music world.

Younger women often choose chic, sophisticated cocktail length dresses for proms, homecoming and other special occasions on the school calendar with black a favorite.  Cocktail dresses are usually more upscale than their sisters worn as club wear.

More readily available during the holiday season, plus-size cocktail dresses are difficult to find at any time of year. Consequently scooping up one or two to keep in reserve for those special events is a common strategy when just the right one to suit and flatter full-figures becomes available.
