The most magical evening on any high schooler’s calendar is right around the corner. So, it makes sense that you’re beginning to consider the latest prom dress trends. Styles are eclectic and full of personality this year. Lacy and flowy gowns. Sleek mermaid silhouettes. Beautiful ballgowns with layers of tulle. Boho-chic maxis. Floor-length halters. Short prom dresses. The options are endless!
There’s so much variety in prom dresses nowadays that teens can pick whatever appeals to their personal sense of style. Non-traditional outfits like two-piece sets with cropped tops are increasingly popular. So are pantsuits! Fit-and-flare and A-line dresses for teens will set them up to dance the night away.
Popular Colors for Prom Dresses
Some hues are classics. Red prom dresses and black prom dresses show up every year. The understated glamour of a white prom dress is another timeless look. Some teens are picking Barbie pink or other vibrant colors, from spicy tangerine to energetic green, while those who prefer more muted colors can keep it fresh with watery aquas and dreamy lilac.
No matter the color of the prom dress, remember that shimmer is always in vogue. Go for the glistening glam of sequins or the subtle shine of satin. Create a princess vibe with layers of beaded lace or embroidery.
Accessorizing Your Prom Dress
We’re big believers in the mantra that shoes can make or break the outfit. Not just for the dance floor, today’s shoes for prom are anything but matchy-matchy. It’s easy to find stylish sling backs or stilettos you’ll gladly wear again. For jewelry, pick pieces that complement the neckline of the dress. If it’s heavily embellished, choose an understated necklace or delicate chain. If your dress is a solid color, go for it with dazzling rhinestone-covered pieces.
When choosing a perfume, make sure other care products complement it. You don’t want a wonderful scent to fight with your soap or shampoo. If you’re experimenting with cosmetics, do a trial run of your makeup before the big night so that you know how to nail the look you’re going for.
