Fun fact: I graduated high school in the year 2000 – so when I heard that Y2K fashions were coming back I figured I am somewhat of an expert. Did I wear a sequin tube top with mermaid taffeta skirt and floating diamonds in my hair… with pride! After perusing many sites for the latest and greatest in prom dresses I found myself humming “Maria, Maria” and wondering if in fact I could still pull off floating diamonds in my hair. And as much as I would love to play dress up for a day and try on all the prom dresses I thought I would spare you. I did however find a few fun trends that my inner 16 year old self is squealing about. Now it’s time to go dig up my prom photos…
Prom Dress Trend: Bold Hues
I still haven’t watched Euphoria, but I think it may be the reason lime green has been trending! These highlighter colors have taken over the dress section and I have to say I am on board. What is a better excuse to try out a bold color?
Prom Dress Trend: Pick a Print
Exploded florals, sequined patterns and intricate lace have taken over. I’ve even seen some fun animal printed patterns in the prom dress section. This is such a fun way to make a statement.
Prom Dress Trend: Classic Black
When in doubt, a classic black dress is always in style. I love the modern details, like subtle cut-outs, that have found their way into prom dresses.
Prom Dress Trend: Blushing
On the contrary soft blush pastels and cool blues are sneaking their way in. Mix in some pretty metallics and this section has me feeling like a girl at an NSYNC concert. I have to go touch up on my Bye, Bye, Bye choreography.
