LONG EVENING DRESSES

Long evening dresses are some of the most sought after styles for every type of event from galas to military receptions, theme parties, Red Carpet premieres and more. Long evening dresses meet the dress code of a large variety of social celebration events that call for ladies formal attire. By far, long evening dresses encompass the widest range of gowns in the formal style.

Although the origination of the long evening dress is not exactly known, we do know that women were wearing long evening dresses dating back to the time of the early Egyptians. Originally worn for religious ceremonies, the colors and cloth dictated social status, wealth and rank among the Egyptian citizens. Queen Cleopatra has long been famous for her decorative and elaborate celebration dresses historically documented in the records. The long evening dress became even more prominent in Roman times with the gowns evolving from a formal smock or overdress type pattern to more elaborate long evening dresses in rich colors decorated with embroidery and decorative collars. The Greeks became famous for pairing long evening dresses with significant decorative jewellery and brought about the most significant style that we are acquainted with today, the flowing lightweight chiffon dress that is the most popular of all of the long evening dress styles. Draped in history, long evening dresses have been a staple of women’s formal attire since ancient times.

ALTHOUGH NAMED EVENING DRESSES - TIME OF DAY IS NOT A FACTOR

Many of our customers who visit us in our flagship store location inquire if there is a certain type of dress that is supposed to be worn only in the “evening,” thus, called the “evening dress.” The answer to that question is simple, no. In past historical times, there were certain styles that were only suitable to be worn to an evening event, however, in modern day times, long evening dresses are completely appropriate to be worn any time of day as long as they are suitable for the event dress code or expected event attire.Thus, there is not one style of dress that is only meant to be worn in the evening. In today’s terms, the term “long evening dresses” refers more to the formality of the dress style, not the time of day in which the dress is worn.
