Short Formal Dresses

Cocktail parties, semi-formal celebrations, homecoming dances, memorable birthday parties…whatever the upcoming occasion may be, women and girls of all ages love short dresses that let them show off their legs and exude a sense of fun, fresh style. The Val Stefani Celebrations and Val Stefani Cocktail collections include a variety of short dresses that are perfect for a guest of a wedding, a girl heading off to a big dance or semi-formal prom, or a woman attending a chic cocktail party with colleagues and friends. Streamlined in a lace sheath or embellished with beading in a flirty two-piece silhouette, Val Stefani makes it easy for every woman to find her ideal cocktail dress.

Depending on the silhouette and styling, short dresses can look just as elegant as full length gowns, and they offer the versatility to be dressed up or dressed down to suit different types of parties and events. From short sleeve designs to long sleeve looks to strapless styles that can be accessorized with matching jackets, short semi-formal dresses come in every silhouette from heavily embellished designs with flared skirts to two-piece looks that let you show some skin to simple and sophisticated sheaths that offer classic, timeless appeal. Available in a variety of neutral hues and vibrant colors with or without embellishments, our short cocktail dresses blend timeless style with contemporary charm, making them perfect for the modern woman.
