Fabulous Cocktail Dresses to Fit Any Season

cocktail dress
It was during the late 1940s, when the fashion term “cocktail dress” was coined. This was referred to clothing worn on parties, where people socialize with each other. Christian Dior, one of today’s prominent fashion designers, was the first to use the term to classify evening dresses that women can wear on semi-formal occasions and cocktail parties.

Cocktail dresses have been extremely popular amongst most women of all shapes and have created a sense of signature in all gatherings and occasions. They come in a wide array of styles, designs, shapes and lengths. Not to mention the “black dress” that becomes a trademark for cocktail parties and other socializing events.

Is this your first time to get an invitation on cocktail parties? If so, you need to at least know the basic "dos" and "dont's" when wearing a cocktail dress. When it is a cocktail party, you should avoid wearing a sequined gown with some Elizabethan embroidery, as they are too formal for such an occasion. Sequenced gowns with laces and long gowns with some diamonds in it are classified elegant social dresses fit for formal gatherings such as weddings, anniversaries, and engagements, not for cocktail parties. The ideal would be cocktail dresses that stop above the knee. Choose a material that would make you feel comfortable like satin and silk.
