How to Differ Cocktail Dresses from Prom Dresses?
Some people may ask what the difference between cocktail skirts and prom dresses when they are invited to a special occasion. From their side, they think there is no distinctive difference between these two kinds, thus they usually buy the one they like. Well, both of these two kinds are party wear for girls and ladies. Prom dress, just as the name implies, it is the skirt that worn by girls for their school gathering parties, while cocktail attires are clothes for women when they want to show a simple and stylish look in some semi-formal or formal occasions. So, ladies may have different cocktail clothes, yet girls will only have one prom skirt.
The easily way to differ these two style is the shape. Prom dresses seem to be very youthful and stunning because they are for girls in high school. That can be traditional, like ball gowns, modern and free, while the length can be long or short. In a word, this style helps to show your youthful and innocent side. Cocktail skirts usually to be short and fitted. They are for ladies who want to show the mature side, with elegance and grace. Sometimes, women prefer to cocktail styles than traditional long formal attires when match with men’s black-tie suits.
Just like I have mentioned above, a prom gown will make a girl appear like a princess in fairy tales, while cocktail skirts highlight ladies’ own beauty, which means they help to show women’s individual personality. The former enhance your beauty with simple but beautiful silhouette, while the latter accents your personality inside. Prom is the occasion that gathers so many girls with the same age, so what you wear should be attractive and stunning.
Prom attires are formal, while cocktail skirts are modern and free. Everyone will agree with. As one of the biggest event of the whole high school life, prom needs some formal ideas to show its significance. So what you wear should match with the theme. However, when you are invited to some parties and dinners, cocktail dresses maybe are the best choices. In these occasions, the only thing you need to do is to keep comfortable and show the feminine side. The most classic example is little black dress. I believe everyone loves it.
Then the last difference is something about accessorizing. Most prom gowns are made out silk, satin and chiffon, which are very beautiful. And there is no need to wear many shiny accessories because the prom attire itself will make a statement. The cocktail dress, however, usually needs some stunning accessories, such as jewelries, a clutch or a small bag and a pair of high heels to accentuate its beauty. I believe you will be the center of attention if you choose the right accessories.
