Hi, my name is Katie Kern with CircaPR, a Fashion PR firm in Charleston, South Carolina and I'm here at Monkee's of Daniel Island to show you how to wear cocktail dress. The materials that you'll need for a cocktail dress are a pair of fabulous earrings, of course a cocktail dress that's going to be at least knee length or shorter and a pair of high heels and that must have clutch. A cocktail dress can be worn to a semi formal or festive events and this is an example of a cocktail dress. Basically, when you think about a cocktail dress, you want to go with something that's a little bit more festive whether it's jewel-tone, sequence, anything that's definitely heavily beaded. When you start with the look, the overall look of a cocktail dress, earrings are definitely a great staple whether it's something that's a stud, a diamond stud or you could do something a little bit more elaborate. It just depends on what mood you're in for that night. The length of a cocktail dress is very important. It's always something that's above the knee or a little bit shorter. You never want to go too short 'cause you always want to keep the dress and the look very classy. When it comes to the shoes that you wear for a cocktail dress, you want to go with the high heel. A high heel is always better because it elongates the legs and it definitely just gives you an overall really good look. A clutch is definitely an essential for a cocktail dress. You have a clutch that you can just put your little items whether it's your lipstick or anything that you have that's in a small little purse. That just helps, you know, brings out the entire look and when you're adding a little accents like little ring, little diamond studded ring, that just brings out the shiny and the glamorous look, the overall look. Again, my name is Katie Kern with CircaPr, and this is how you wear a cocktail dress.
