As prom season is in full swing, there are some styles and emerging trends for this season to make you feel picture perfect for the big event. From off the shoulders, to empire waists to sequins and fit and flare, there are so many options and you are guaranteed to find the one to fit your body shape. It’s a case of choosing what you feel comfortable in.
The emerging trend is the bohemian look
One emerging trend for this year is the bohemian-style dress, featuring loose-fitting material and flowery prints which are colourful. You can look effortlessly chic in the light fabrics which create flowing shapes.
Young women like to emulate the celebrity look, so red carpet inspired dresses often appear at proms. Bold pinks to pale blush shades and nude pink puffy dresses featured at the Oscars in perfect harmony with Lady Gaga’s all black look. Voluminous princess gowns and silver sheens also reigned.
Mauve is proving to be a popular choice, coming in a variety of shapes and necklines, while burgundy is also making an appearance. Gold and silver jewellery go well with this deep colour which is versatile.
Young women love to shop for prom dresses as this is just as exciting as the actual event. Ranges are available from quality suppliers such as axparis.com/collections/prom-dresses.
According to Fox 35, an American teenager created a prom dress, made entirely out of duct tape. It took Christina Mellot who is 17, over 80 hours to create the purple gown.
Opt for an off-the-shoulder look for glamour and sophistication
Those who feel a little more daring can opt for an off-the-shoulder look with a dress featuring either prints or embroidery. The shape of the dress shows off the neckline and shoulders, and it allows you to look glamorous, confident and sophisticated.
Yellow is also set to feature on the prom scene. A light, sunshine colour, it exudes happiness. Not an easy colour to wear, women are teaming the colour with accessories, such as light silver jewellery, and topping it off with a spray tan.
Floral styles are making a comeback this year. From pretty pastel shades representing summer, to bold black and red combinations which are wintery, all flowers are in bloom for prom season. Slip on a pair of heels to complement your dress and you will feel fabulous.
