Mon Cheri is a fashion design house with a respected name for special occasion dresses, and their collection of cocktail dresses is one Madame Bridal, one of America's best prom dress websites is excited to offer to our valued customers.
Short, sassy, trendy dresses are in hot demand for stylish girls planning a scintillating look for upcoming parties, the school prom or the homecoming dance. Every girl wants to look gorgeous when there is an exciting evening in her social calendar. Mini cocktail dresses and short cocktail dresses are a popular choice for modern girls opting for a less formal look for evening wear.
Dresses with above the knee hemlines offer the freedom for girls to kick up their heels and have fun. Short cocktail dresses are less restricting than long gowns and can be more easily worn for a host of different occasions. They are versatile enough to see girls through from the early evening cocktail hour right through to the last dance at the hottest nightclub, as they look perfectly in place in both settings. Short hemlines are also a great pick for summer dresses as they are so cool, in both the temperature and fashion sense.
The Mon Cheri collection is vibrant, young and exciting, with styles that tempt and promise to flatter the figure. Girls that are drawn to the classy look will love the classy cocktail dresses in this collection and girls that like to keep it simple will find that the simple cocktail dresses in this line are deceptively sensual.
One of the most enduring and popular styles is that of strapless cocktail dresses with a fitted silhouette and a mid-thigh hemline. Mon Cheri creates this style in a number of designs, each offering a different look. The designers surprise by recreating this style in beaded jersey, in patterned sequin, in embroidered lace over a nude lining and in satin embellished with lace appliques. A neat twist on this design is the addition of a detachable A-line filmy overskirt.
The Shorts by Mon Cheri collection invites girls to bare as much leg as they dare in a short dress or a two-piece ensemble with a high-thigh hemline or a more demure just above the knee finish.
Choosing the length to suit is just one piece of the hemline puzzle as there are choices to be made between handkerchief hemlines, high-low hemlines, and scalloped, layered and sheer hemlines. Silhouettes do not raise so many choices as these short designer party dresses are either fitted or A-line.
Cocktail dresses with an A-line silhouette are a fabulous choice for girls that adore pretty dresses and plan to dance. They often like the appeal of a breezy short skirt, while short fitted dresses can project a sexier image. Another popular style in the Mon Cheri collection is a straight strapless bodice atop an A-line skirt with the swirl factor.
Mon Cheri creates these stunning short cocktail dresses in an enticing cocktail of colors. Naturally the collection includes striking examples of the must-have black cocktail dress, and it also experiments with refreshing colors such as aqua and gold, fuchsia and turquoise, red and lilac.
