Evening Dress Rules:
Whether it's pleated chiffon or a ruched empire bodice that makes you feel like a princess, there are a few rules to follow when choosing your perfect evening dress. The right fit, the time of year and type of body you have can all be factors in making the right choice for your perfect evening out
- Body Type: Your body type may dictate what type of evening dress is appropriate for your night out. If you are pear-shaped, a dress that shows off your waistline may look nice, while someone who is not as endowed in the chest might want a wrap dress with shirring or gathering over the bust line to create an illusion of fullness. If you have a larger bust, stay away from detail at the bust line and opt for a sweetheart neckline or a dress that is darker on top
- The Occasion: Many fashion rules are mandated by the occasion itself. A festive or semi-formal event calls for a little black dress or a cocktail-style dress. A white tie event is most definitely the night to wear a floor-length gown, while black tie events call for either floor-length or your absolute dressiest little black dress. Accessorizing your little black dress with a set of pearls, a festive hairpiece or the right pair of shoes can dress it up, too
- Time of Year: There's nothing worse than showing up to a party over- or under-dressed. For festive holiday occasions in the winter, wear a little black dress, but one that is winter-appropriate with a cap or 3/4-length sleeve. If you must go strapless or with thin straps, throw on a scarf, gloves or a pair of closed-toe shoes to winterize your evening dress. For something different, opt for a pant suit with accessories for your night out during the winter months
About Evening Dress
- An evening dress is a long flowing women's dress usually worn to a formal affair. It ranges from tea and ballerina to full-length. Evening dresses are often made of a luxury fabric such as chiffon, velvet, satin, or silk. Although the terms are used interchangeably, ball dresses and evening dresses differ in that a ball dress will always have a full, flared skirt and a strapless bodice; in contrast, an evening dress can be any silhouette-sheath, mermaid, A-line or trumpet shaped-and may have straps, halters or even sleeves.
- It corresponds to men's semi-formal wear for black tie events.
History of Evening Dress
- In the Middle Ages, formal dress for women had yet to be developed. Women simply added a train to their kirtle for formal occasions. As centuries rolled by, most dresses were generally very elaborate, but more so for formal occasions. In the 18th century, formal dress started as the mantua, but later developed into the elaborate sack-back dress. Starting with the 19th century, the term "evening dress" began. The fashionable length was ankle-length, but, during the reign of Victoria, the evening dress was floor-length. The styles ranged from having huge sleeves in the 1830s, to off-the-shoulder and with wide flounces in the 1840s, to very low-necked in the 1850s, to having low necklines and short sleeves in the 1860s, to long and lean with a bustle and very short sleeves in the 1870s, to sleeveless, low-necked, and worn with gloves in the 1880s, to having a squared décolletage, a wasp-waist cut, and skirts with long trains in the 1890s. During the Edwardian era, the empire silhouette was popular. Later, in the 1920s, evening dresses were very simple to match the style of the flapper era. Starting with the 1930s, evening dresses began to modernize. Along with the empire cut, over the years the sheath, mermaid, A-line, and trumpet shapes became popular. Also, the dropped waist and princess styles were frequent, depending on the era. Grace Kelly is noted for wearing understated evening dresses. Today, the evening dress comes in any silhouette, and is popular for formal occasions such as the opera, formal dinners, cocktail parties, and wedding receptions.
- Evening dresses can be distinguished from conventional or day dresses by a two primary features. The first is the cut, which tends to be couture and in line with the latest fashions, unless the article of clothing is a ball dress, in which case it will tend to be cut along more classic lines. The second distinguishing feature is the fabric. Evening dresses tend to use luxury materials such as silk, velvet, and taffeta, and they may be richly embroidered or decorated with beads, sequins, jewels, and other ornaments. Wealthy women also prefer to purchase tailored evening dresses, which are designed to flatter their figures. In all cases, evening dresses are designed to be worn with high quality jewelry.
- Evening dresses are typically associated with glamor and luxury, and appear at events like the Academy Awards in the United States, the opening of the society season in urban areas, and formal receptions. In most instances, evening dresses are not designed to be worn more than once, although high profile members of society such as celebrities may auction off dresses which they have worn for charity. In some cases, especially for highly dresses events, well known designers will lend custom or vintage dresses to famous attendees of the event, in order to showcase their design skills, and then take the evening dresses back at the end of the evening for part of a permanent archive.
