Prom Dress Trends
From short prom dresses to princess ball gowns, you have an endless number of options when choosing your prom dress! Some trends come and go and some last for years. Whatever your choice is, make sure that you feel confident and content on your prom night.
Illusion gowns and dresses have been and continue to be very popular. They create the illusion of showing skin but still keep that mystery by using sheer fabrics and beading. These can be a great way to feel sexy without being over the top. They can also be used on any body type. Find a dress with illusion cutouts on the parts of your body you feel best about. You can cover your arms but accentuate your waist. You can find dresses with illusions at the neckline, sides, waist or just about any combination.
Two piece and crop top dresses are a more recent trend that create a youthful energy and can be both fun and elegant at the same time. If you feel great about your waist and want to show it off, this might be a great style for your prom dress. In addition to deciding on the cropped waist, you’ll need to make a few other choices: do you want the top to be strapless? Do you want the skirt to be fitted or flared? And you’ll have great options for colors, embellishments and fabrics as well.
For a girl who has to have a princess ball gown, nothing else will do for her prom. This has been a classic style for decades. You still have many different styles to choose from within the ball gown trend. You’ll find tulle skirts, beaded and silk skirts with everything ranging from dramatic to simple. Whatever your choice may be, take the accentuated waist with a full flowing skirt and you’ll be the belle of the ball.
A short prom dress adds an element of fun and style. Not to mention it can be easier to bust a move in a shorter dress! The flared skirt and fitted bodice have become a fashion statement from red carpets to high school proms.
You’ll have many other considerations to make such as whether you want your dress to be strapless, form fitting, simple or blinged out and, of course, what color it should be!
As you decide which dress is best for you, make sure that you can sit, stand and dance in your prom dress. Move around when you try it on to be sure that you won’t be uncomfortable all night long. Print pictures of dresses you like the best to guide your search when you hit the stores. Having an idea of which style you’re interested in will keep your search focused and will allow store clerks to be able to better help you in your search.
