Knowing the trends for prom dresses before buying one gives you an idea of what you might want to look for. Do your research and see which styles you will be most comfortable in and you’ll feel like a star on your special prom night. It’s never too early to find out what’s in style for the coming year.
Simple prom dresses just won’t do for this coming prom season. Bold is the adjective of the season. Everything from the length of the garments to the cuts showing a little skin to the details reflects this characteristic. It does not mean you won’t find something to wear if you are faint of heart. You might be pleasantly surprised with the way designers incorporate these details to gowns already on the market previously.
Bold colors have been very popular for a few seasons now, but this season takes it to a new level. You will find combinations of vibrant colors such as yellow, red, and violet on dark neutral-tone fabrics. You can sport this trend by looking for prom dresses with baroque print and combination of these bright colors located in areas you want to highlight. If you want to be much bolder, try a dress with an animal print, which is yet another trend for this coming season.
If you’re not one for color, then you might consider the finish of your gown of choice. Gray is very prominent on the runways, which is perfect for those of you who may not want to wear color. Designers spiced up this look by using metallic fabrics to construct their classic-cut garments. Going for mermaid prom dresses with extra shine lets you stand out as a fashion-forward young lady on your prom night.
As with all garments, you may choose to take it up a notch and go for gowns with very bold details. Going for a full-length ensemble with a low V neckline or a full-length one-shoulder dress is the easiest way for you to follow the bold trend. Choosing gowns with cut-outs or mid-thigh slits also fits the more confident and adventurous ladies. Try these garments on before deciding on one to make sure it covers and supports your body in all the right places.
Designers also add unexpected elements on some dresses, such as studs you will expect to find in a rocker’s cuff bracelet or a big flower to accentuate the waistline.
If you’d rather go for something simple and still be able to show a little boldness, try this: Find a sleek full-length strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and a slightly flared bottom in one of this season’s trends, white. Add big, chunky accessories in bold colors or with bold designs. This works as an alternative to wearing gowns with bold color.
Play around with your choice of prom dresses and make sure to have fun with all the selections out there. Fashion has always been experimental, and because of this, you now have many options for your special night. Choose one that you feel works best for you and suits your tastes well, and you’ll really feel like a star in your prom.
