Undoubtedly, a woman has to work on every part of her body to look attractive. However, at the end it is the dress which if wore properly completes the perfect picture. Of the different aspects of a woman like the hair, or the make up, or the smile, or accessories, it is the lady's outfit that lures and helps gain attention in the crowd. For a party or mutual gathering, a cocktail dress is a must, irrespective of the weather, if its cold weather or some other problem has cropped in.
However, generally women get confused between the dress and the evening cocktail dress, therefore, let us first distinguish the two and clarify this confusion. A cocktail dress is basically meant to be worn to social formal events, such as receptions, office meetings, or social gatherings. Typically, the dresses should not have collars and they come with or without sleeves. The dress is considered to be more elaborate and also more sophisticated than the ordinary dress but it is also less elegant and formal than the usual evening dress.
The benchmark for the cocktail dresses is that they are worn in the events or gathering that begin before evening i.e. before 7 p.m. cocktail dresses are expected to be short till the knee, quite decent, definitely good tailoring and should be of standard quality. These dresses are generally made up of the satin, the velvet ottomans, the stain, the silk or even the lace, means of elegant fabric. Styling in cocktail dress represents elegant and a perfectly feminine look. You should give less importance to the accessories; just a string of pearls will work and add to the beauty. Nowadays, the cocktail dress is addressed for the special events and occasions which make use of the dress code like a family gathering, an office party, reception etc. Andrei Ilie
