Jovani Cocktail dress 171097 - Jovani 2012 collection
I don't know about you, but when I think 'sweater dress', I automatically think of a slouchy knit creation (perhaps designed more for comfort than standout style), perfect to throw on over a pair of leggings and boots for a comfortable look that doesn't look like you just slept in it.Maybe it's not your go-to dress-to-impress outfit, but definitely stylish in that effortless sort of way, and certainly more on the casual end than, say, evening wear. However, believe it or not, this season's sweater dresses are stepping it up a few dozen notches in the direction of 'upscale', with the help of show-stopping sequins, dramatic details like ruffles and beading, and sexy figure-hugging silhouettes that you normally might not find on your average knitwear piece!Read more about this cozy cocktail style by clicking over to our friends at TheFind!

Every female wants to ooze classic sex-appeal, but sultry sophistication can so easily take a wrong turn. It's easy to over-step the boundary from sexy to trashy or, on the opposite end of the spectrum, stuffy and matronly (God forbid!). With David Meister and his collection of sensually sophisticated cocktail dresses, you'll always look seductively appropriate! A sheath dress is always classic with it's feminine silhouette and longer hemline, but a plain black sheath is something we've all seen a million times. David Meister cleverly takes this favorite shape and adds interesting necklines and enticing details like off-shoulder looks and flattering ruching. Sumptious fabrics and eye-catching colors and prints only add to the va-va-voom factor. These dresses are perfect for any evening event and are quickly becoming a celebrity favorite, guaranteeing heads turning in your direction and looks of envy all night long! But don't just take my word for it! Click on the slideshow to see some of my favorite sexy and sophisticated cocktail dresses by David Meister!
