Nordstrom.com has a search bar you can use to browse the store's cocktail dress selection online. You can then sort the search results by relevance, price or customer rating. Refine the search results by using a series of filters located under the Sort by drop-down menu.
Use the filters to narrow the search results by size, occasion, brand, store availability, price or silhouette. Filters include radio buttons, search bars or both to help you find your desired value or range of values quickly. As of April 2015, Nordstrom offers several hundred cocktail dresses online. Brands include Hervé Léger, Helmut Lang, Adriana Papell and Emilio Pucci.
