Short Dress or Long Dress: Tips for Getting the Right Look

When you have an upcoming event, one of the decisions you will need to make about your dress rental is whether to wear a short dress or long dress. Although there are some general etiquette rules about dress length, these are changing, and women are more likely than ever to rent the dress they want instead of what tradition says they should wear. As you confront the conundrum of short vs. long, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Understand the Basic Rules
Generally, cocktail dresses are short, while formal gowns are long. This means that if you are invited to a cocktail party, most women are likely to be wearing short dresses, while women at galas are likely to be wearing long dresses. For prom, homecoming, and other school dance events, both long and short dresses can be acceptable. There is a wide range of ways to interpret these rules, but if you want to adhere strictly to dress code norms, follow these guidelines.

Consider the Event
Sometimes, you will know how much leeway you have in choosing a short or long gown by considering the event itself. If you are attending a cocktail party hosted by someone with very traditional tastes, a modest cocktail dress that is knee-length to midi at the longest is probably a safe choice. If you are attending a fashion-forward gala, you may be able to forgo the traditional long dress for something more creative. The host, location, season, and type of event can all shape your decision about wearing a short or long dress.

Experiment with Style
An anything-goes vibe has crept into fashion, giving when the ability to express themselves when they dress for events instead of sticking to rules that could feel outdated. An ankle length dress is not out of the question for a cocktail party anymore, and a short, formal dress can work at a black-tie event. As long as you respect the occasion, get the look that works for you.

Deciphering the Dress Code on Your Party Invitation

Getting a party invitation is exciting—until you see the dress code and start to wonder what to wear. No one likes going to an event and finding out that they’ve made the wrong choice with their attire, but we’re here to help. Once you get a grip on the dress code for your event, use the Lending Luxury site to find cocktail dresses, couture gowns, or whatever type of dress rental you need, at a price that won’t break your budget. Here is what you need to know about dress codes you may see on party invitations.

Cocktail attire is one of the trickier dress codes for women to decipher, because it can mean different things to different people. Typically, cocktail dresses are shorter than formal dresses, and can range from short to midi. Cocktail occasions are perfect for the classic LBD, but there is also plenty of leeway to show your personality in your attire. Sometimes, the season or occasion will influence your choice of cocktail dress. For instance, you may pick a dress in a metallic shade for a holiday cocktail party or a sleeveless A-line for a summer event. Heels or dressy flats can work for cocktail attire.

Formal attire—or black tie, as it is sometimes called—traditionally calls for a long dress, though now on occasion, it is not unheard of to see someone dressed in a very formal shorter gown. Men are called on to wear tuxedos to black tie events, so your dress should be similarly formal. This is a great opportunity to wear a couture gown. Heels are generally a must.

White Tie
White tie is the most formal dress code. Short dresses are not a fit for a white tie event. Instead, women should wear long dresses and long gloves—usually white—that reach their elbows. Couture gowns, your best jewelry, and heels are all appropriate for white tie events.

Lending Luxury makes it easy to find the perfect dress rental for any occasion, from debutante dresses to cocktail dress in Tampa, FL. Learn more about our selection and how to start renting high-fashion dresses by calling (800) 403-9848.
