For the second feature of "Dress Kode" I decided to feature a look that would be perfect for a cocktail dinner. If you're anything like me, you prefer something a bit more chilled for the holidays. Sometimes a dragged out event is unavoidable but you can't deny that it feels more "financial year end" than year end function or Christmas party for that matter.

A few drinks here and there, a floating fusion dinner and light conversation (non-work related) is the perfect end to a trying year. What to wear? No need to go long on this one (unless you want to of course), I suggest that you stick to midi-length cocktail dresses, elegant jumpsuits or an extraordinary blouse with clean-cut pants. It's the perfect occasion to dress up a little more than usual and finally showcase the outfit you've been dying to find an occasion to wear.
