To happy hour and beyond, these brown cocktail dresses go hand-in-hand with daiquiris, mojitos, margaritas (or even just a refreshing blackcurrant squash). Choose your cut from a slew of designs that touch on trends and tones ranging from demure to statement-making.
OK mixologists, it’s time to pick your favourite flavour: there are tons of hues in this edit of brown party dresses. For a wedding, go ultra feminine in a soft colour and a ruffled cut. Whether it's rippling sleeves or a flamenco hem, silhouettes featuring these kinds of flirty details were made to shimmy on the dance floor with comfortable block heels and nude lipstick. Deep chocolate designs are sleek options for galas. Look out for easygoing shapes with cinched waists that are made to flatter. Satin lace-up heels add the big finish - offset the dress with a gleaming gold or a feminine frosty pink.
Are you a firm believer that more is more? If so, embellished brown party dresses have your name all over them. For a simple yet luxe look, choose a dress with ornate beading. Lift the outfit even more with your highest heels and add a velvet box clutch bag to finish it off. A brown cocktail dress with sequin embellishment is just what you need to light up the dance floor at the after party. Pointed pumps dress your ensemble down by day, while low heels make it ready for taking you through to dawn (Maid of Honour, we’re looking at you). For a subtler take on the embellished look, choose a dress with sheer or lace inserts. Pep it up with a touch of highlighter or pare down the decadence for demure events with a cashmere cardigan.
