Most popular trends for prom dresses:
Bright and vivid colors and accessories. Grab the attention of the crowd with bold and vibrant colors since they’re a major trend. Imagine a neon coral, electric blue, or bright fuchsia. These types of colors work well as solids or you can wear exciting prints and patterns, such as a floral dress or an animal print style. Complement your bold colors with chunky beading, like a statement-making necklace or bracelet cuff with rhinestones. Alternatively, if you’re looking for colors in romantic and softer hues, pink blush tones and nudes reflect a calm feminity.
One-shoulder dresses. One of the top trends is definitely the one shoulder prom dress. They’re very prevalent amongst celebrities and are a favorite on the red carpet as the style creates a statuesque silhouette that flatters your curves and draws the eyes toward all of your flattering and stylish features. Opt for shorter length if you're looking to showcase your long and leggy stems while creating an interesting assymetrical look at the top, or slip on and try long prom dresses for a more dramatic and floor-sweeping look that's equally just as red-carpet ready.
Strapless dresses. A few special neckline trends are emerging this season like a pretty strapless & sweetheart neckline will showcase your beautiful features and are very popular this season. If you're looking for a sweet and demure style that highlights lovely, feminine qualities such as your collarbone and shoulders, strapless prom dresses are a highly recommended option. And with the variety of fits, shapes and lengths, the fashion dress selections are seemingly endless. Try a strapless empire long dress for a Grecian goddess look, a short bodycon strapless short dress to amplify your sultry, sassy side or perhaps a strapless A-line long dress for a more classic and timeless style vibe.
High to low prom dresses. Get the best of both worlds with this hemline style (short at the front and long at the back). It’s a dress length that’s very reminiscent of those seen on designer runway shows. It also allows you to showcase a killer pair of heels. And if you're looking for a hot dress style that's very much on-trend for this year's prom, hi-lo dresses are certainly the way to go! It's versatility allows you to wear this style for virtually all occasions both day and evening. You can combine your fun and sassy side while combining a more dramatic aura at the back if you're in the mood to wear something reminiscent of a sweeping dress with slight train.
Frilly short dresses. Another gorgeous trend is a short prom dress that shows off a bit more leg. You can try a demure A-line style with perhaps some mesh wire hemlines or go for a fierce bodycon dress. If you're looking a dress shape that's more flared dresses with a mirrored corset bodice are a highly popular fashion option. It combines a fitted and structured shape around your torso and wispy A-line skirt hemline comprised of tulle. And if sleek and body-skimming is what you're after, strapless short dresses are great options to accentuate your curves and showcase your legs.
