The Flirty Dress
A Cocktail Wedding Dress is generally worn by women at cocktail wedding events and considered a bit semi formal as compared with the gowns. The length of these dresses can depend upon many factors although traditionally it would fall anywhere between knee and ankle.
There once was a time when a dress was considered cocktail dress based upon its length, later, the name became associated with the sumptuousness of a particular dress. Still later, Christian Dior first used the term Cocktail Dress specifically for dresses worn in early evening events.
Traditionally, one of the more favored implementations of this kind of dress has been the little black dress. Still, there is a lot of leniency in what you actually wear as a cocktail dress. Generally, for cocktail dresses, Spaghetti Straps with a tight body is very popular. Nowadays, for the sake of lingerie, the dress straps are a bit thicker. Otherwise, strapless bra is very popular to be worn by cocktail dresses. The Cocktail Dresses needs to be seamless and popular materials for the dress included silk and chiffon etc.
With cocktail dress there are some accessories that are more popular. Generally for weddings, wearing a hat with cocktail dress is almost a must, although the hat must be regular sized. Other than that luxury standard coats are very popular too. For shoes pumps and sandals are both quite popular with the Cocktail Wedding Dress.
Cocktail dresses in general are supposed to be fun and maybe slightly flirty. The Cocktail Wedding Dress is comparatively more formal but still tends to bring out the brighter, naughtier side of a woman. It falls just short of the tea dress which generally touches the ankle. If worn with all the relevant accessories in a tasteful manner the dress has the potential to be used at events and long afterwards.
