Baby Blue Cocktail Dresses and Baby Blue Party Dresses

Choosing Between Baby Blue Cocktail Dresses, Baby Blue Formal Dresses, and Baby Blue Evening Dresses

There are many different styles of baby blue dresses out there for you to choose from. They are not all short baby blue dresses or baby blue baby girl dresses. This is a common misconception, since these are two types of dresses you most often associate baby blue with.

Another misconception is that there is actually a difference between baby blue prom dresses, baby blue bridesmaid dresses, baby blue formal dresses and baby blue evening dresses. Most often these terms can all be used interchangeably, and it becomes more a matter of personal taste than style.

While baby blue cocktail dresses may seem different, they can often pass as baby blue party dresses or baby blue prom dresses as well. Semi-formal baby blue dresses cover a whole range of these styles from prom dresses to cocktail dresses. It is best to use your instincts and wear the dress you will feel comfortable in and that you think is perfect for the occasion.

It can really be confusing, so knowing that there isn't too much difference and to just use your intuition is your best bet. If you don't think a short cocktail or party dress is formal enough, opt for dresses deemed long baby blue evening dresses or baby blue formal dresses.

  • If you're going to a somewhat formal affair, opt for shimmery fabrics of baby blue dresses and tailored fits.

You most likely will not want to go too long unless it is a black tie affair. Choose a shimmery, luxury scarf or wrap to compliment the baby blue dress with accents of pearls or diamonds. Look for baby blue cocktail dresses.
