The cocktail party. It's your time to shine with as much gusto as possible - to wow the crowd, make an entrance and light up the room as soon as you set foot inside. Essentially, it's your night to act out that red carpet fantasy you've fantasized about for so long. Whether you're headed to an actual red carpet event (lucky you!) or to a formal event at a swanky hotel, you've got to have the right dress for the occasion.
Now is the perfect time to slip into something soft, seductive and brazenly red. This Calvin Klein Beaded Jersey Gown ($178) is not only apt for the season, it's also surprisingly comfortable thanks to its forgiving, relaxed material. Who knew a gown could be so easy to throw on?
