What is a Cocktail Dress?
A cocktail dress is an ensemble that is suited to semi-dress up parties and occasions. You may wish to wear a cocktail dress with high heel shoes, flats, and even accessorise with a dressy bag or silk scarf.
For your next special occasion, you’ll adore CAMILLA’s alluring range of cocktail dresses. Whatever the occasion, and whatever the dress code calls for, CAMILLA is the ultimate destination for finding cocktail dresses online in Australia.
Mini dresses show off sun-browned legs, perfect for cocktail dresses in Australia, while maxi lengths add a hint of glamour to even the most relaxed events, or take the best of both worlds with an ultra-feminine high-low style.
Whether you want a white cocktail dress with a delicate print or something darker and more evocative, bold graphics or fresh florals, rainbow brights or desert hues, with our wide range of unique and beautiful fabrics to choose from, you’ll find the perfect cocktail dress here.
Go daring with a lower neckline, or choose one that sits higher for a demure touch. For more versatility, choose a dress that can sit as a round neckline or an off-shoulder look, or one with a lace-up front that can be adjusted to suit your needs.
What is the cocktail dress code?
Do you have an upcoming event with the label dress code as ‘cocktail’? A cocktail dress code refers to a dressier appearance than your normal day to day clothes. It is dressier than smart, but not dressier than formal.
Not a cocktail dress woman?
Eschew cocktail dresses while sticking to the cocktail dress code. CAMILLA has plenty of alternatives for you - try an eternally flattering wide-legged jumpsuit or mix and match a gorgeous top and skirt for the perfect evening outfit.
Finishing touches to cocktail dresses.
Dress your CAMILLA dress up or down, and alter the look for every occasion by changing your accessories, shoes and make-up.
Darker colours call for bold jewellery and accessories, while a white cocktail dress with feminine blush tones and soft floral patterns let fine jewellery shine. Finish with heels if you like, or elegant flats if you prefer. Add a clutch or a small drawstring bag to carry strictly the essentials, and a pop of your favourite lipstick and you’re ready to go.
