Select Perfect Cocktail Dresses for the Parties

Cocktail dresses are often suitable for cocktail parties, semi-formal, or black tie occasions. These dresses might vary in length or style, but the basic design is often the same. The ankle-length cocktail dresses are mostly termed as evening gowns, and dresses above that length are called as tea length dresses. Ankle-length dresses are often a better choice for formal and official parties, however; a tea length dress is the best option for most of the semi-formal parties. Despite of the fact that the length, fabric and style depends upon the personal choice of a person, but still there are always some other factors that must be taken into the account while selecting a dress.

Cocktail parties are often themed parties, and people are mostly asked to dress in a certain way. A person should thoroughly read the invitation to find out, that if the party has a theme or not. If the cocktail party's host is asking you to wear a red dress, then it is just rude to wear a blue dress, and you might end up looking weird instead of different. So select the cocktail dresses according to the theme of the party. If the party does not have a theme, then you can wear whatever color you want.


Cocktail dresses can be of different types. A skirt or a tea length dress or might be a full length gown, it always depends upon the type of the party. Skirts and full-length dress gives you a very formal look, and are best suited for official cocktail parties. A heavily beaded jacket over a skirt will give a very stunning look without disturbing the formal touch of the dress. Avoid using a dress with shiny sequins work on formal parties. At semi formal cocktail parties you can wear all the fancy dresses with whatever length you like, just not a dress which is too short for the party. An A-line tea length dress with a bit of sequins work will look gorgeous, however; if the dress is not that heavy you might need to wear a nice bolero jacket to give it a complete party dress touch. A floor length ball gown will also look great, although; it is more of a formal looking dress.


The fabric of the dress might vary according to the weather, or the time of the day when the event is going to happen. If the party is in the early afternoon then it is better to wear a dress made up of light fabric like jersey or lace. While in the late afternoon or evening parties, dress made up of chiffon, organza or silk could be worn easily.
