The 7 Dresses We're Wearing to Socially Distant Cocktails

Louisa Holmberg | July 20, 2020 | Style & Beauty National

Though our summer soirées may look a little different this season, our get togethers haven’t been cancelled for good. We are, after all, social creatures, and stylish ones at that. Here, seven dresses designed for drinks al fresco...six feet apart, of course.

1. The Slinky Slip Dress


This champagne satin slip dress is everything we want in a summer drinks look: easy to slip on, subtly sexy, and effortlessly elegant. Plus, it’s versatile: wear a white tee and floral face mask for daytime, and pair it with boots and a sweater come fall. Satin Slip Dress, $295, Vince, Shop Now

2. The Chic Shift


Shimmy ready silhouette? Check. Sequins? Check. Bright colors and a fabulous print? Check. This festive frock is *almost* as fun as you are. Pour the martinis and have a ball! Francobollo in Silk Twill, $1,580, La DoubleJ, Shop Now

3.The Boho Maxi


Embrace bohemian style with this printed maxi dress by Sandro. Its deep v neckline and low back will showcase your tan, and its swishy silhouette will sway in the breeze as you sip your aperol spritz. Long Dress in Printed Chiffon, $260, Sandro, Shop Now

4. The LBD


You can’t go wrong with a little black dress. With its figure flattering draping and short hemline (hello, legs!), this flirty mini ensures you’ll have no shortage of suitors when you show up to the party. Whilst the classic red lip would be our natural go to with this look, our 2020 take is a bold cat eye with liquid eyeliner to exchange coquettish glances over your mask. Bonzac Dress, $225, IRO, Shop Now

5. The Vintage Visage


Doesn’t this dress look like it was taken straight out of a Slim Aarons photograph? We’re loving its sunny yellow hue, creative cutouts, and sixties vibe. We’d style it with statement earrings and strappy slides. Bonus points if you wear your hair in a beehive! Colada Dress, $325, Staud, Shop Now

6. The Summer Staple


Easy breezy with hints of eyelet, this mini dress will take you from your daytime stroll to evening drinks with style. We’d wear it with a blue gingham mask for day, and a metallic one to play up your jewelry as the sun sets. Then just swap your sneaks for a heeled sandal and you’re good to go. Bea Dress, $395, LoveShackFancy, Shop Now

7. The Glamorous Gown


Whoever said less is more had not seen this dress by Alice + Olivia. We’ve been staying indoors for months, so why not make a statement with your social debut? With its fuchsia floral print, off the shoulder cut, and asymmetrical hemline, this design just oozes glamour. While donning this gown, staying six feet apart will simply amplify your spotlight.
