15 Cocktail Dresses for Every Summer Occasion

So you've finally set your OOO email, and the only thing left between you and your dream summer vacation is the formidable task of packing your suitcase. Setting aside the essentials is easy, but when you move onto your special-occasion pieces, that's things get tricky.

Instead of drowning in a sea of skirts, statement blouse, and pant suits, we highly suggest you opt for cocktail dresses. Not only do they take up the least amount of space in your suitcase, but they can be easily dressed up or down and worn more than once, depending on your destination.

That's why we've rounded up the best summer cocktail dresses for every vacation. Pair these lovely numbers with sandals, denim jackets, combat boots, or "ugly" sneakers and you'll be one step closer to leaving your overpacking days behind you.

Now the struggle is deciding which one of these will be the sole winner.
