Cocktail dresses are designed for formal parities and occasions even semi-formal affairs. Most of them are often above the ankle. While the most graceful one would be touching the ankle with a very long length, it is the so-called ballerina length dress. A dress with ballerina length is particularly suitable for evenings.

A shorter-length cocktail dress is more appropriate for semi-formal occasions, as its less elaborate design could make a swift yet elegant look. It is also a good costume to choose when go to dance. That’s why shorter-length dresses was called “dancing costumes” in mid-20th century.

Generally, cocktail dresses show off women’s graceful body to its perfection. A long cocktail dress with a thigh-high slit makes a subtle appearance of you long slender legs. Its long sleeves could make your silhouette more elegant. With long locks, a well-trimmed designer cocktail dress would make you absolutely gorgeous and breath-taking.
