From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A cocktail dress or cocktail gown is a woman’s dress worn at cocktail parties and semi-formal or “black tie” occasions.

Historically the length of a cocktail dress is long, often touching the ankle. When it is about 5 cm (2 inches) above the ankle it is called tea length and when it is almost touching the ankle it is called ballerina length, although ballerina length dresses usually fall into the evening gown category. New Styles Short Dresses.

The modern definition of a cocktail dress is commonly taken to mean a shorter dress above the knee. It must be smart, such as the little black dress, and may have sequins or lace as a feature.

At semi-formal occasions, a less elaborate, shorter-length cocktail dress may be worn. Prior to the mid 20th century this type of dress was known as ‘late afternoon’. When gentlemen are in business suits, ladies also wear dress suits or “good” afternoon skirt and dresses.

Evening gown

Evening wear, sometimes also known as court dress based on its creation at royal courts, for women has its origins in the 15th century with the rise of the Burgundian court and its fashionable and fashion-conscious ruler Philip the Good. Wool, in various weaves, was the most dominant fabric for dresses, and the ladies of the court often simply added a train to their kirtle for formal occasions. Rich fabrics and fibres were usually the domain of the nobility, and clothing was still used as an identifier of social rank and status. The dawn of the Renaissance slowly changed the rigid social rank system, and allowed wealthy Patricians and merchants to visibly display their success. The art of weaving silk was firmly established in the Mediterranean around 1400, and as a result, silk weaves became fashionable for those who could afford them. Dresses for court balls and similar festivities were often made of intricately woven silk and trimmed with expensive furs to highlight the wearer’s social status. READ MORE
