Whether you get to go to prom this year or not, we all get to dream about a starry night, butterflies in our stomachs and the look in his eye as we walk down the stairs. Embrace these trends for prom or for any special evening. Anything that shines (metallic or sequin) will have you sparkling all night long. Raspberry, like Rihanna’s ruffles, or coral shades are deliciously divine. Long maxi dresses are in, but so are short cocktail dresses. Ultra feminine silhouettes with ruffles, pleating and floral embellishments make you feel like prom royalty. And if you want to be the classic beauty, opt for black and tuxedo white.
1. BCBGMAXAZRIA One Shoulder Dress:
Coral confection. This dress satiates so many cravings: hot coral color, on-trend asymmetrical cut, and stunning drapes and pleating. Pair with a metallic sandal to wow at the dance or cocktail party.
2. ONE by Contrarian Babs Bibb Maxi Dress in Raspberry:
Prom queen. This gorgeous maxi is cut with a bib front which leaves a sexy open back. Its silk charmeuse fabrication falls elegantly to the floor. The deep raspberry color is spring verging on summer, a tangy hue that complements sunkissed skin.
3. Alice + Olivia Rigby Sequined Tube Dress:
Sparkle, shine, and steal the show in Alice + Olivia’s gold sequined dress. Red carpet worthy, its figure-flaunting tube cut has a leg-baring short hem. Pair with black heels and keep jewelry to a minimum to let this dress have center stage.
4. Thread Short Strapless Double Ruffle Dress:
The LBD is always appropriate, whether it be for the big dance or an evening wedding. This LBD has a youthful air that comes from puckered sateen and a flouncy double ruffle. Pair with an oversized cocktail ring, statement earrings and a metallic clutch.
5. Alice + Olivia Everly Poof Skirt Dress:
The black and white of it. Inspired by the tuxedo, creamy white is cut into a sleeveless boatneck bodice and made fun by a poof skirt accented with black under ruffles. Playful for prom, but also a fun choice for a girl of any age.
