Correctly placed cut-outs can be chic and sleek. See Faith’s sexy shoulder slits as evidence.
With a simple cut and color, fabric takes center stage. Experiment with otherwise hard-to-wear picks like velvet.
Make your LBD stand out from the crowd with unique touches, like Courteney’s bell sleeves.
When it doubt, pick proper-yet-playful. This option gives plenty of coverage, but stays flirty with a sheer neck detail.
Genius construction, like the barely-noticeable gather at Diane’s waist, makes for a figure-flattering silhouette.
A sexy place to flash a little skin? Your shoulders. Leave ‘em bare with a halter neck.
Re-purpose a cocktail frock by pairing it with a cardigan.
A plunging neckline gives this simple shift a dose of sex-appeal (those legs don’t hurt, either.)
The tiniest of cap sleeves gives this would-be simple shape a lot of style points.
Long-sleeved black runs the risk of looking too school marm-ish. Keep the look light by using plenty of sheer, feather-weight fabrics.
The sitcom mom gives the one-shoulder trend a twirl-literally.

Certain frocks, like the classic shirt-dress, work at the office or a cocktail party. Note Tilda’s tricks: satin adds glam and an attention-grabbing necklace kicks things up a notch.
Shine lovers rejoice! Recent trends brought sparkle out of the cabaret and into cocktail hour. A simple shape gets loads of pizazz when done up in sequins.
Designer knows best. Mimic your favorite shape, like this oversized shirt look, in a luxe fabric.
Make anything as chic as a little black dress with tips for making inexpensive clothes look pricey.
