t’s that time of year when high school hallways are filled with giddy laughs and eager chatting about the big day, yes… prom! For young ladies around the nation, this is their Oscars. Their chance to glam it up and feel like a true princess for one night. Here’s some of my favorite picks to make this a night to remember.
Few things make me happier than a dress with pockets. It can hold all the essentials (which for prom means a phone and lipstick) as well as serve as a perfect for landing place for nervous hands that aren’t quite sure “what do to”. This C/MEO dress has a structured bodice balanced by a fuller skirt creating a chic and comfortable silhouette.
If glam is your jam, then this is your dress. This Dress the Population sequin number is a true showstopper. The figure hugging shape is red carpet worthy, while the leg slit allows for actual dancing.
When I think feminine florals, this embroidered lace corset dress by Blondie Nights tops the list. The fit and flare cut is super flattering on almost all body types and the corset top will make sure everything stays put for a log night of dancing.
This Avery G dress is the best of both worlds. You get the comfort of a short dress and the drama of gown with this jeweled tulle overlay. The bodice has built in padding (adios awkward strapless bra) and the all over sequins add to the princess feel.
For those fashion forward ladies, this Dress the Population fringe dress is a dream. The deep crimson (also available in silver) is so rich, while the fringe has incredible movement for a night filled with dancing.
For those who want to channel their inner Grace Kelly, look no further than this AQUA embroidered bodice gown. The diamanté embellishment looks beautiful set against the blush tone tulle.
Seeing as how prom and festival season sync up, here’s an option for the boho babe. This metallic Rebecca Taylor mini slays with stacked heels and layered necklaces.
This sequin one shoulder mini by Self Portrait is what I like to call a double duty dress. Killer worn with heels for prom, it can also be worn again after with boots and a leather jacket. A dress this fab deserves to be worn more than once
