Prom season is upon us, which means it’s time to start dress shopping! It’s been a while since I’ve been to prom, but I still remember how giddy and eager I was to find the perfect gown. I wanted to find one that felt like me, one that embodied my personality and made me feel beautiful.
The search was not as easy as I thought it would be. So, to make your dress hunt a little easier, I’ve compiled research on the latest prom trends and styles and put together a list of the top looks of 2017.
From classic silhouettes and bare-shoulders to two-tone fabrics and floral prints, these trends will blow you away! Take a look, get started on your search and remember to have fun in the process!
Feminine + Flirty
Trends to look out for: floral prints, two-piece gowns, straps, full skirts, two-toned fabrics, slits, back details, high necklines and delicate beading.
I love this two-piece, A-line gown with floral embroidered bodice by Sherri Hill from Glitz!.
Also check out these options: A blue, two-tone, two-piece gown with high-neckline by Rachel Allan (left) and a blue, two-piece, floral gown by Rachel Allan (right)—both from Glitz!.
Another favorite? This floral, A-line gown with lace-up back by Faviana from Glitz!.
This elegant, delicately beaded, A-line gown by Sherri Hill from Glitz! is also just about perfect.
Finally, I adore these choices: a floral, A-line gown by Teeze Me (left) or a fitted, lace gown by City Studio (right). You can find these at Macy’s.
Classic + Glamorous
Trends to look out for: classic silhouettes, subtle details, strapless, high-necklines, sleek fits, long sleeves, lace accents, elegant bead work and textured skirts.
Try this classic, strapless, A-line gown by Sherri Hill from Glitz!.
Other options: try a lace, two-piece gown with slit by Xscape from Nordstrom (left); a black + white, A-line gown with high-neckline by Blondie Nites from Macy’s (center); or a lace, two-piece gown with long sleeves by Aiden from Nordstrom (right).
