Knee Length Evening Dresses
An evening gown is a long flowing women's dress usually worn to a formal affair. It is generally floor-sweeping. Evening gowns are often made of an elegant fabric such as chiffon, velvet, satin, taffeta, silk, or charmeuse. Although the terms are used interchangeably, ball gowns and evening gowns differ in that a ball gown will always have a full, flared skirt and a strapless bodice; in contrast, an evening gown can be any silhouette - sheath, mermaid, A-line or trumpet shaped - and may have straps, halters or even sleeves.
Select knee length evening dresses and gowns that fit you properly by taking your own measurements with a tape measures – when your knee length evening gown is too loose, it will slip around all night and when your knee length evening dress is too tight it looks unflattering; and be bold when you buy knee length evening dresses because you can wear any color you want and include dazzling details such as rhinestones and a dramatic slit up to your thigh; and while black is a traditional evening wear color, step out of the box and grab attention by choosing bold colors such as red or electric blue.
Evening dresses and gowns can be formal or fun, depending on your destination. Shop around our vast selection of evening gowns to find something sexy and sparkling to show off your special sense of fashion and appeal.

More Info About Evening Dresses
In the Middle Ages, formal dress for women had yet to be developed. Women simply added a train to their kirtle for formal occasions. As centuries rolled by, most gowns were generally very elaborate, but more so for formal occasions.
In the 18th century, formal dress started as the mantua, but later developed into the elaborate sack-back gown.
Starting with the 19th century, the term "evening gown" began. The fashionable length was ankle-length, but, during the reign of Victoria, the evening gown became floor-length. The styles ranged from having huge sleeves in the 1830s, to off-the-shoulder and with wide flounces in the 1840s, to very low-necked in the 1850s, to having low necklines and short sleeves in the 1860s, to long and lean with a bustle and very short sleeves in the 1870s, to sleeveless, low-necked, and worn with gloves in the 1880s, to having a squared decolletage, a wasp-waist cut, and skirts with long trains in the 1890s. During the Edwardian era, the empire silhouette was popular.
Later, in the 1920s, evening gowns were very simple to match the style of the flapper era. Starting with the 1930s, evening gowns began to modernize. Along with the empire cut, over the years the sheath, mermaid, A-line, and trumpet shapes became popular. Also, the dropped waist and princesse styles were frequent, depending on the era. Grace Kelly is noted for wearing understated evening gowns.
Today, the evening gown comes in any silhouette, and is popular for occasions such as a state dinner or evening party.
