Country style is coming in strong! You can spice up any plain cocktail dress with a pair of cowboy boots and a jean jacket! It puts the “rugged” cowboy spin on dresses that are brightly colored and fun.

We paired this cocktail dress with a dark jean jacket and a favorite pair of cream-colored cowboy boots to bring down the tone of the dress.

Now, whether you're having drinks with the girls or on a date with your man, to feel sexy, confident and stylish when you go out, all you need are a few accessories and a bit of bravery. Couple a mint-colored, lace cocktail dress with a Mykonos Blue leather jacket and black pumps. Mykonos Blue is one of the season's hottest colors, and it's sure to catch more than a few eyes. Wear it to make a simple outfit slightly more daring.

Complete the look with black pumps and a cute clutch to carry your essentials. This outfit is all about accessories, so keep things simple, daring or a combination of the two.
