Anyone who has ever been to prom night knows that it is not about what you do at the prom, it’s about what goes on after. In fact, from the way proms are portrayed in American culture, it might be disappointing if your prom night turned out anything less than a version of “American Graffiti,” complete with cruising, drinking, crashing, and fumbling around in the backseat. Of course, we all know that, however we end up spending this right of passage, it will end up memorialized in selfies and Instagrams, so what you wear will be just as important as what you do while you are wearing it. Here are some 2017 prom styles that will ensure your dress, as well as your night, will go down in history.
The High Halter Neck Line
If you want to steal the show at the prom this year, try a high halter neckline, low cut down the bustline to the navel. Not for the faint of heart, try a long Jovani fitted ensemble in a creamy white or midnight blue with strategically placed see-through lace and glittering beads.
Short and Flirty
Just because its formal doesn’t mean it can’t be short. Why not be bold in a short taffeta dress? Try a Sherri Hill with high halter neck and beaded bodice flaring into a pleated skater skirt.
If you want to be very on trend this year, go for a two-piece gown with midriff exposing top and fitted skirt. You can pull off a Primavera Couture dress with a bead embellished crop showcasing a high neckline and hip hugging jersey skirt with a matching belt or an A- line skirt for a classic silhouette.
Mermaid dress with tulle skirt
For something sexy and classy, don a dreamy Morilee strapless mermaid dress. Complete with a floral embroidered dotted bodice, this figure hugger flares daintily into a tulle skirt above the knee.
Long and slinky
You can never of wrong with something long, slinky, and shiny. A classic version by Sherri Hill features a v-neckline and thin straps with a long train to make a stunning entrance. The iridescent sequins in alternating linear patterns will guarantee a glittering evening.
Of course, there is no girl who has not wanted to dress up like a princess at one point in her life, and why not use prom night to take advantage? Go ultra feminine in a jewel embellished bodice with a multi- tiered organza full-length skirt. Try a pretty pastel for a true Cinderella look.
Channel your inner Scarlet O’Hara with a traditional Tiffany prom dress with a plunging v- neckline. Dainty straps complement a lavishly embroidered bodice and the satin A- line even features side pockets for quick cell phone access.
