Neon Dreaming

The year of drab is over. Time to step out in your most all-eyes-on-me neon prom dress. This unique prom look invites some much-needed color back into your world. We’re especially smitten with this Chartreuse stunner, which tops our best prom dress list. Not sure which high-voltage shade is most ‘you’? Read up on the best prom dress colors for your coloring. 

Show Me Some Shimmer 

Get ready to radiate. These sparkly prom dresses will be all over your feed come prom night. Scattered crystals and sequin accents will match your inner shine as you turn heads. If you’re overwhelmed by all the dress ideas for prom, trust us, this one is foolproof. Accent your look with a full ballgown skirt like this Shimmery blue Sherri Hill dress. Want something a little more daring? This sparkly open back gown from Ellie Wilde is, well, wild.  

High Slits FTW

Daring and bold, prom styles dressed with high slits never go out of fashion. They’re a particularly popular prom dress idea this year because of how confident they make you feel. Imagine walking into a room in this light blue strapless Sherri Hill. You can show a little leg anytime you were feeling flirty or be a little more conservative around the adults. Sometimes it’s nice to have the option to be two things at once. 

Lace up Back Ballgowns

Ballgown prom dress styles are so versatile. They can be simple and chic or make a statement. Either way, they’re always sophisticated. If you’re after different prom dresses, give this strapless black Sherri Hill ballgown a closer look. The voluminous tulle skirt sparkles alongside mirror stoned basque bodice, while the lace up back finishes your ‘fit. If you want something a little sleeker, we have a Terry Costa Exclusive that will have you swooning. Check out this post on finding the best dresses for your body type if aren’t sure whether this silhouette is right for you. 

Everything’s Coming up Satin 

Different prom dress styles showcase different features, but these figure flatterers go the whole nine yards. On the left, this one shoulder Morilee prom dress hugs your midline before flaring into a classic mermaid cut. The two-tier skirt adds extra dimension that naturally draws the eye from top to bottom. On the right, a classic pink satin prom dress is the epitome of pretty. 

Insta-worthy Prom Dress Accessories 

Once you find the perfect dress, time to pair it with the perfect prom accessories. Accessories for prom will look different for different prom dress styles, but at the very least, you’re going to need two key things to accessorize your prom dress: a cute facemask and a killer prom heel. 

Some styles of prom dresses require a simpler shoe, while others need a bit more flare. If you want a little lift, you can’t go wrong with this chunky platform shoe.

Up top, you can encourage your peers to ‘spread kindness not germs’ or ‘keep smiling’ despite the weirdness of the world. Of course, you can always go with chicer accessories for your prom dress like this sparkly Faviana facemask.
