Top 5 Modern Metallics: Cocktail Hour

I don’t know about you, but sometimes seeing a metallic dress makes me want to shout, “Cocktails?! Cocktails?!” in the Las Vegas-waitress singsong tone. But these elegant frocks are not of your Caesar’s Palace cocktail-waitress variety. More genuinely cosmopolitan than The Cosmopolitan, they are meant for drinking cocktails, not serving them.

1. Rachel Zoe Daria Metallic Dress: Box-pleats give this sweet creation ample ladylike flounce, while the short hemline brings some sauciness.
At Neiman Marcus for $425.

2. Trina Turk Metallic Melange Dress: Limestone metallic-threaded jacquard might read girlish sparkle, but the silhouette of this dress is all woman.
At Neiman Marcus for $298

3. Stella McCartney Metallic Bustier Dress: This is the ultimate. It doesn’t get more exquisite than Stella’s peplum- and sweetheart-detailed creation.
At Neiman Marcus for $3,445.

4. Girl. By Band of Outsiders Tiered Floral-Print Dress: Bring a sense of ‘20s joie de vivre to the party, along with a bohemian edge, thanks to the floral pattern.
