You probably know this, but the 80’s are back, so it’s no surprise that everything in fashion is a bit more extra. Voluminous tiered skirts. Shiny satin. Ruffles on ruffles. Pops of neon. And on the print spectrum, larger-than-life florals. As prom gets closer and closer, we’re keeping our eyes peeled for this fresh take on floral prints. Rather than dainty and delicate, the new way to wear them is bold and in-your-face. Interested? We searched our collection and picked a beautiful bouquet of oversize floral print prom dresses, just for you.

Let’s get one thing straight: large floral prints don’t necessarily have to be loud. If you’re more of a neutrals gal, ease into the movement with a muted color palette, like greyscale, navy and white, or soft pinks. On the other hand, if you’re ready to fully bloom, opt for punchy reds, pinks, or even a funky striped pattern (hey, it’s not every day you get to go to prom, right?) One rule of thumb: if you’re on the petite side, go for a fitted or high-low dress as to not overwhelm your smaller frame in too much fabric. Taller ladies can play around with virtually any oversize print, so have fun with it!

Lastly, keep it modern with a simple hairstyle, like a sleek pony or soft curls to avoid looking like you stepped out of an 80’s prom catalogue (nothing that resembles a perm, thanks!) Appearing playful and flirty is what this trend is about, so don’t take yourself too seriously and above all, have fun!
