Formal dresses, like the name suggests, are dresses worn for a formal occasion, such as a dinner, ball, wedding or other social event. Formal dresses are generally classed as evening wear, although can also be worn in the day if the occasion calls for it. Formal dresses are more sophisticated than normal day dresses and tend to use more expensive and luxurious fabric such as silks, satins, tulle and taffeta to create a draped effect or more fixed shape depending on your taste. Generally speaking, the longer the dress the more formal it is, and the dress code for many formal balls normally calls for an ankle-length or floor length dress to match the male's tuxedo.
