5 little black dresses for formal night on a cruise

On most cruises there is likely to be at least one formal evening that requires you to dress up.  Some people dread formal nights as it can be quite tricky, especially for first-time cruisers, to decide what to take with you to wear.  I love dressing up and believe that you can never go wrong with a little black dress for formal cruise nights so I’ve compiled a list of five little black dresses that are perfect for cruising.  The best thing about these five dresses are that they are all £50 or less, so it’s clear that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to look good!  I love a bargain, here are my top five picks.

Sequin Flapper Dress, £19.10

Add a little sparkle to your evening with this sequined formal dress.  I can just imagine wearing this dress whilst sipping a bellini in one of the ship’s cocktail bars.

Elegant V-Neck Vintage style dress, £25

This little black dress is ideal if you prefer to cover your arms but don’t want to have to pack a shrug or wrap.  The peplum accentuates the hips and cinches in at the waist for the perfect hourglass silhouette.

Velvet Lace Cold Shoulder Dress, £50

This is a beautiful take on the little black dress, with its intricate pattern design it will make you feel sophisticated and I love the cold shoulder detail.

Off Shoulder Cocktail Dress, £25.99

I think this dress would look amazing with a statement necklace.  Its timeless glamour means that this little black dress could be worn on more than one cruise without it dating, just simply update with accessories.

Batwing Embellished Cocktail Dress, £50

This little black dress is surprisingly flattering for most body shapes and is sure to add glitz and glamour to your formal evening.  The batwing sleeve has a breezy, elegant flowing feel but it still says ‘I’m ready to party’ – don’t you think?

Are you ready for your next cruise’s formal night?  Remember, little black dresses don’t have to be boring; sparkle and detail can make your outfit look amazing and you can customise your look by adding a few simple accessories.
