Cocktail madness continues. You know what’s a really solid bet for looking glamorous-in-good-taste at a cocktail obligation? Start with a simple sleeveless sheath that boasts a modest neckline and a knee-skimming hem then overlay its pale tawny fabric with black lace. Pro-tip: black lace over flesh-toned fabric equals sexy, but the prim, ladylike cut will keep things demure and subtle, basically inspiring confused erections everywhere.
