What is a Ball Gown?
Definition of a ball gown: A ball gown is floor-length dress to be worn to formal, black tie and white tie occasions. It is the most formal (and fancy!) type of dress, and traditionally has a full skirt and fitted bodice.
Because of their dressy nature, ball gowns are usually crafted in luxurious or expensive fabrics like silk, taffeta and velvet, and may be trimmed with pearls, precious gems or intricate, hand-stitched embroidery.
However, with the rise of fast fashion and the desire by more people to emulate the looks of the runway and the red carpet, gown-style dresses are also available in more affordable fabrics and styles from stores like Macy's, Bloomingdales, Cache and more.
Ahead, learn a bit about the history of ball gowns and when they are commonly worn today.
