With prom only a few weeks away, we’ve pulled together a collection of prom trends that are totally #promgoals! Scroll through to see the dresses we love and how we’d style each of them for the big night!
There’s no escaping the cold shoulder trend, but when it’s this fab, why would you want to? We’re totally loving an all white moment, but it’s the details in this dress that have us head over heels. Delicate pleating on the waist and bust is super flattering and the draped cold shoulder style is sweetly chic. Add that to a sweeping skirt and this is the dress fairy tale prom nights are made of!
If there is one night you can go head-to-toe fabulous, it’s prom! Sequins are always a great choice for making a statement, and the sleek silhouette of this dress keeps it from being OTT (not that being over the top is ever a bad thing when it comes to your wardrobe). A deep neutral metallic such as this one looks amazing with cool-toned smoky eye makeup, sparkly silver jewelry and swept back hair.
Prom is meant for dancing and enjoying the night with your besties, so a relaxed dress in a lighter-than-air fabric is the perfect choice for wherever the night leads! This dress looks super glam because of the luxe gold fabric, but the comfortable silhouette will keep you ready to party all night. Pile on the accessories for picture taking, as seen here, but a dress like this stands out all on its own.
Lace and Legs
Who says you have to go full-length to be formal? Sheer lace detailing and a sophisticated plunge neckline keep this dress from being too casual for the most dressed up dance of the year. Higher hemlines mean you get to play more with your footwear and show off a little leg. Plus, they have the added bonus of being totally rewearable more often than full-length formal wear – for those of you graduating, a dress like this would be awesome for college formals and mixers.
Chacha all night in this swingy stunner, perfect for kicking up your heels (maybe in a contrasting color or fun metallic?) and twirling across the dance floor! Dresses in bold hues are a surefire way to stand out on prom night. Black, neutrals and metallics are gorg, but if you only have one night to go all out, why not do it in a bright, bold way? Beyond the bright color, this dress has major back appeal, perfect for an over-the-shoulder Insta shot.
This dress goes all the way up and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Hitting on a few fun prom trends, this velvet version brings the attention to your beautiful face and sexy shoulders with a high halter neckline. Velvet is luxe all year long, but the open back and double side slits will keep you cool in the springier weather.
Wallflowers, step aside: this floral printed two-piece dress is not for blending in! One of the prom trends we totally love is a two-piece dress, and it gets even better in a bold print that reminds us of spring and sunshine. A dress like this is sure to be unique on prom night, and any girl who loves a little non-traditional fashion will live for this full-on floral moment.
We can’t wait to see what you are wearing on the big night! Which of these prom trends is your fave? Tell us in the comments and post any pics with #lovelulus so we can see!
