Social events like parties and weddings often call for cocktail dress codes. For women, this means a glamorous dress, usually around knee length but these days you can get away with wearing a range of lengths. If dresses aren’t your thing you could even get away with wearing a chic tuxedo. Men can wear suits without a tie. There’s lots of room to move with cocktail dressing and it’s an opportunity to get dressed up without the restrictions usually associated with more formal dress codes.
