Trendy Styles

Interested in the most popular dress styles for the prom season? If you are hoping to be the belle of your ball or queen of the court, take a look at some of these newest trendy styles.

Bright, Bold Colors
The light pastels and washed-out whites of past proms are out, and this year it’s time to stand out and shine in a bold color. Not only are bright colors eye-catching and attention grabbing, they also tend to draw out attractive features and bring color to the face. Bright oranges, pinks, and yellows will definitely be present in the prom court this year. If you are not quite ready to stand out completely in a bright colored dress, try adding a colorful sash, pareo, or other accent to your prom dress to jazz up your style.

Star-Studded Gowns
Sequins, rhinestones, beads, and jewels are all the rage this season. A dash of glittery extras is the easiest way to add some terrific style to a plain dress. Plus, nothing catches the light and draws eyes like flashy jewels. A sparkly tiara is the perfect accessory to a star-studded gown. This year, indulge all of your princess dreams with a bejeweled prom dress.

Hollywood Style
If you have ever caught yourself drooling over a stunning dress on your favorite Hollywood actress, this is the year for you. The hottest dress styles from the red carpets are making their way into high school proms throughout the country. As you watch the A-list celebrities at award shows this year, take down notes on your favorite dresses and see if you can’t replicate the fashions with your very own diva-style prom dress.

Wedding Dress Trains
You may have been planning your wedding since you were six years old, but this is the year to get a real taste of the matrimonial glamour. Prom dresses are including trains of all lengths for sensational style. Choose anything from a small duster to a full-length chapel train and have your date treat you like true royalty. Nothing says prom queen like an attendant carrying your train.

Short, Full Skirts
If you have ever dreamed of being a prima ballerina, this trendy dress is definitely the style for you. To find this style, you will want to look for dresses with knee-length, poufy skirts and snug bodices. The tight bodice will show off your beautiful waist and upper body while the full skirt is flirty and fun. For extra party style, look for a dress with a tulle overlay in the skirt.

Feathery Details
Dresses with feathered or lacy details on the skirt or bustline will be taking the prom court by storm this season. Feathery details are a funky alternative to sequins or other, more classic niceties and they are a perfect complement to your own unique style. Look for a feathered gown with an asymmetrical, ruffled hemline for an edge over the style competition.

Tie-Dyed
You know you secretly loved the casual, devil-may-care look of tie-dyed t-shirts when you were a little girl. Luckily for you, the tie-dyed look is back and it’s not just for t-shirts anymore. You can find prom dresses in a literal kaleidoscope of colors for every body type and shape. If you like the idea of a tie-dyed gown, wear strappy gold or silver sandals with your dress to step your style factor up a notch.

Asymmetrical Hems
If you can never quite make up your mind between a short skirt and a floor-length ball gown, why not go for both this year? With a high-low cut dress (high in front, long in the back), you can have a dress that both sweeps the floor and shows off your sexy legs. You can be sure that all eyes will be on you in this unique, flattering style.

We are sure that one of the styles above will be perfect for your prom this season. Still, it is important not to choose a style simply because it is trendy and popular. Be sure to choose a style that complements your own personal taste and comfort. There is nothing more beautiful or stunning than a girl who feels comfortable in her own skin.
