It may still be cold and blustery outside, but that doesn’t mean that prom night and the prom shopping season aren’t right around the corner. Take a walk through any of your favorite department stores and you are going to see the first signs of the upcoming prom season…right now there are already dresses, bags, shoes and accessories making their first appearances in all of the best shops (online and in the “real” world).
The first prom dresses to appear on the racks are often a sign of what the entire season is going to look like, and if you were to take a preview today you could sum things up in a few short words.
The Summary Details
What are those few short words that can describe the current trends in prom dresses? They are: short, sequins, color and netting. This year’s batch of prom dresses are all about the glamour that comes from the glitter and sparkle of sequins, but they are also about the contemporary cut and look of popular celebrity gowns too.
Consider the different gowns from Sherri Hill…they personify the words we mentioned. From a sheath of brown and turquoise sequins in a gorgeous sunburst design to an ultra-sexy mini dress with a single sleeve and thousands of glittering jet black and gunmetal beads, the trend is always towards sleek, lean and sexy.
The Short and Long of It
In addition to the trend towards mini dresses, there is a wonderful multi-hemline style too. You might call it flamenco or you might call it princess, but the basic fact is that the dresses are sexy and short at the front with a gorgeous “swooshing” tail at the back!
Of course, we also mentioned that netting and loads of color are part of this year’s trends in prom dresses too. This unique fabric can be found in the Jovani line of gowns that are full of patterned fabrics, bold colors, unique combinations, and all of the other materials we mentioned.
Their Long Sweetheart is a perfect example of the multi-hemline, and their Royal Glitter Cap Mini is covered in bold blue, white, and sheer beads and sequins. It has a netting bodice and back that are super sexy and yet totally appropriate for any prom. Their Mermaid gown is probably the epitome of all of the trends with a sexy, clinging bodice, floor length skirts, silver sequins from top to bottom, and gorgeous black netting skirts that give a beautiful silhouette.
The Princess in the Mini
Not interested in “vamping” it up for the prom? That’s okay, you can still stay with the trends as you glam up like a princess. Jovani has a White Sequin Mini that is absolutely adorable with a silver bodice and white netted skirt, but Sherri Hill also does princess nicely in the Black Mirrored Mini too.
Other brands to explore this season include Silent Kiss and Sky as they also use the lovely colors, sexy cuts, and fantastic fabrics that are the hottest options for those hoping to start some trends, stop their date in their tracks, and enjoy a comfortable and totally stylish prom night.
