What Is a Cocktail Dress?

So what is a cocktail dress? It's that go-to piece for cocktail parties, semi-formal gatherings, or those fancy black tie events. Typically, these dresses hit knee-length or higher, but you'll see some that grace just above the ankle – those are your tea-length dresses. And then there are the ones that sweep down to the ankle, affectionately called ballerina length. The idea here is elegance – think less formal than your full-blown evening gown but a step up from your everyday outfits.
