Cocktail Dresses: Find The Right One
Christian Dior was the first to name the early evening frock a “cocktail” dress in the late 1940s, and in doing so allowed magazines, department stores, and other designers to promote fashion with cocktail-specific terminology. Bridging the gap between an afternoon dress and an evening gown for attending balls, came the transitional cocktail dresses, worn until the late 1950s with elbow length gloves and flirty little hats.
Historically, a cocktail dress was of a long length, often touching the ankle. In modern days cocktail dresses are shorter, above the knee. It has to be rather smart, but can be decorated by sequins or lace.
