A great way to dress feminine for a cocktail party or prom is to wear a form-fitting dress. This will make your curves more obvious. Even for figure-hugging dresses that don’t have sexy backless or deep V-necks, they only look cautiously sexy with the skinny-fit cut. If you are looking for more depth and elegance in your dress, wearing a bodycon velvet dress should be a good choice. For this blog post, I’ve rounded up some of the best outfit ideas for bodycon velvet dresses and I’m going to share them with you now.
Burgundy short sleeve velvet bodycon dress
To start the list, I’m going to show you a burgundy, short-sleeved, velvet bodycon dress, which is a very typical bodycon dress that you would normally see at a cocktail party or prom. To style the dress, wear it with black heels with ankle straps and a silver cuff chain for a very simple yet elegant look. Relatively low-key, this outfit is perfect for those of you who don’t want to get too much attention at a party and still want to look good.

However, to wear this stunning outfit you should be someone who tries hard to be in good shape.

It’s the perfect outfit when you just want to look good but don’t want to shine too much at a cocktail party. One thing I really love about this outfit is that you don’t have to show any skin at all and you can still look your best.
