A staple in the wardrobe of the refined and stylish woman is not just the well-known ‘little black dress’. For occasions that call for elegant, chic styling, such as corporate banquets or weddings – an equally special creation is essential. A cocktail dress is perfect for this role.When and how to wear it? What is the difference between a cocktail dress and a ball gown? What dress will be most appropriate for the Mum of the Wedding?
What is a cocktail dress like?
A cocktail dress is a creation that is perfect for a variety of elegant daytime occasions. Its name derives from the traditional parties held in the afternoon, during which drinks were sipped and lively conversation was indulged in.
In these ‘conditions’, the simple, elegant mid-calf length dress presented by Christian Dior in 1948 – worked perfectly.
What else distinguishes a cocktail dress from an elegant ball gown?In addition to the length (usually the aforementioned mid-calf length, sometimes shorter for meetings that allow for such deviations), it is also a small neckline, often exposed shoulders and a cut that allows the beauty of a woman’s figure to be highlighted – and emphasises the waistline and roundness of the hips.
A cocktail dress, like oura Nadia II wedding dress,
is meant to subtly accentuate the neckline and waistline.
The cut, which widens from the waist, also accentuates the beauty of a woman’s hips.

Dress for Mom’s Wedding
In contrast to the chic and often ornate ball gown, for evening occasions – the cocktail dress is primarily distinguished by its sophisticated elegance and class.
Although there are now many dresses that are inspired by the classics, loosely referencing the original – it is worth remembering that the occasion for which we choose the creation is of great importance.Obviously, for less formal, though still professional afternoon meetings – in some industries, we can opt for a little more ‘craziness’ in patterns or colours.
This particular, however, flared creation – the cocktail dress – stands out precisely for the kind of understatement, mystery and moderation it conceals.
When deciding on it, let’s be aware that in this case “less is more”.A perfect example is certainly styling for a wedding and reception. Wearing a sophisticated cocktail dress, will make us look classy and tasteful.
