Black Tie Wedding: Long vs. Short


Porter Grey one sleeve dress, $128
Halston Heritage dolman dress, $228
Halston Heritage sleeve dress, $144
Sass Bide one sleeve cocktail dress, £780


  1. Well I think all of these are pretty classy but i really like the long pink one. I am going to a beach wedding in September and I'm having a hard time deciding what dress to wear as well!


  2. How fun! I was just looking through lot of possible bridesmaid dresses for my wedding next year and I'm having a black tie optional wedding, but going for long dresses! :) That long coral/pinky one is beautiful!

  3. i love the cynthia vincent & sass and bide dresses.
    i think both long & short work equally well if styled correctly. to me, for a long dress, i would wear simple accessories since the length will automatically take it up a notch. and for short, i would wear bangin shoes with an amazing clutch, great jewelry, etc. just call me the Zoe.

  4. I think you can get away with either. Depends on the setting. I actually have the second long dress you showed, it is one of my all time favorites!!

  5. not very many occasions that you can wear a long cocktail dress too - so I say long!

  6. I almost always opt for short dresses. I'm only 5'1 so I've always felt like long dresses look weird on me.
