Choosing a prom dress is no easy feat, but we’re here to make it easier. We’ve provided multiple silhouettes that you should definitely check out as you search for the perfect prom dress.
Most of us generally go to prom once and for some of us it will be the only time to get dressed to the nines. You definitely want to find the perfect dress that fits your frame and body type. We’ve provided a lookbook to show you all silhouettes you can choose from. Some styles we hold are flowy, mermaid, A-line/ball gown, sleek sheath, cocktail, bodycon, and fit & flare.
Flowy dresses are usually made of light fabrics, such as chiffon, that will give you wonderful movement when you walk around or spin while dancing. This is a great option for girls that want a sexier look, but without the skin tightness of a bodycon dress.
Mermaid dresses are fitted on the top and then flares out around the knees. This gives the illusion of a taller build, accentuating the legs with a dropped down bodice and the flare of the skirt. When it flares out at the bottom, it can give you the drama of a ball gown without hiding the curves.
Ball gowns are the ultimate fairytale dress. The way it moves and poofs out will give you a princess moment. Dresses of this shape usually have a fitted bodice and a full skirt. This dress can be great on anyone, though it may overwhelm a petite frame. A-line is the ball gown’s flowy sister. A-line dresses also have a fitted bodice, but then they flare out naturally at the waist. This will give you an “A” shape. This silhouette will also look good on anyone.
A sleek sheath dress is a form fitting silhouette. It will give you a narrow shape that flares straight down starting from the neckline. If you’re looking to achieve an hourglass shape, this is an excellent choice. Pairing this type of dress with a belt of some sort will give you the ability to make this dress your own style.
Cocktail dresses are known to be shorter dresses. They allow you to show off your legs and they’re fun and flirty. The hem usually falls right above or below the knees showing off the perfect amount of leg for the catwalk strut. This is a dress for a girl that loves some height to her step.
Bodycon dresses are tight and fitted to hug your figure and make you feel fierce. It will highlight your long legs and accentuate the natural curves of the body. This dress will also make you booty look good while dancing with friends.
Fit & flare dresses do what they’re called. They’re fit at top and then they flare out at the mid-thigh. This silhouette will show off your waist, giving you that hourglass shape. This style dress is often confused with the mermaid style but the difference is where the flare starts. Fit & flares are great for the shorter girl the skirt starting at the mid-thigh will elongate the look of her legs. This prom queen will be walking tall tonight.
