The Kay Unger cocktail dress is one of the more refined and sophisticated dresses a contemporary woman can wear. Often the designs are stylish and enchanting without standing out inappropriately (you won't see any massive, colorful bows or outlandish pattern combinations).
The Kay Unger pleated silk dupioni dress is one that should be in every woman's closet. It's a gorgeous Empire-waisted dress that, in a deep navy, could be worn to a lunch at the Ritz-Carlton or dinner at the Four Seasons. It's quite possibly one of the most versatile cocktail dresses on the market and it's only $300.
Another magnificent Kay Unger cocktail dress is the Phoebe Couture strapless silk bubble dress. Worn in a colorful sheen, the ruffled front offers a playful yet sexy alternative to a longer gown. The hemline is about 21 inches from the natural waist so it's just sexy enough for late afternoon rendezvous that might go all night.
