Cocktail & Semi-Formal Dresses

Shop Forever 21's semi-formal and cocktail dresses and find the perfect outfit for your next special event! Our collection has a variety of styles for you to choose from, so the perfect dress is only a few clicks away! No matter if the occasion is a swanky social soirée, posh party, or a holiday work party; we have just the right semi-formal dress to give your style that oomph you have been looking for. Make a glamorous entrance in a slinky bodycon dress, enliven cocktail hour in a flirty ruffled gown, or keep the wedding reception classy in knee-length velvet.

Embrace satin fabrics, strapless necklines, and sequin lace, since cocktail hour is the perfect time to ride the line between sexy and professional. Another way to change up your looks is to experiment with proportions! Choose a maxi dress featuring a side slit or a mini dress with a high neck and long sleeves. A classic little black or white dress makes an elegant choice by creating sleek monochrome lines. On the contrary, opting for a red maxi dress or a bold gold print will make for a lasting impression. Grab a cute clutch and accessorize with statement jewelry to complete the look. From dazzling drop earrings to layered high-polish necklaces, we’ve got just the touch of glimmer you didn’t know you needed. For shoes, put on some classic pumps or barely-there strappy high heels. Then, just sit back and let your style do the talking while the compliments come rolling in!

And while Forever 21 cocktail dresses are perfect for parties, we won't bust your budget with over-the-top prices. Our deluxe looks are made for thrifty shoppers, so you can dress to the nines at any fancy function without breaking the bank. And what is more fashionable than that?
