When looking for a prom dress, whether online or in store, what should you be considering? One thing that many girls think of first is, do I want a short prom dress or a long prom dress? Traditionally the prom dresses were long, but short prom dresses are just about splitting the show in half nowadays! Long prom dresses are fun for the girl who likes the classic look and wants the full royal experience of a formal dress. Short prom dresses are more for the girl who wants a more casual experience for prom, although some short prom dresses are quite fancy! Sherri Hill makes some fabulous options for prom with short and long version for the same look. One option for some girls is to wear a short dress one year and a long the next. Either way, you must make sure that they dress you get, shows your personality. The possibilities are out of this world.
Another consideration a girl must make is of color. Every color in the rainbow is an option but not every girl can wear every color. Think of a color that you know looks good on you and start there. When in doubt go with black! What if you do not want to wear a solid color? You have a few options: wear a dress that has a few colors combined on one dress or choose a print. Color blocking is extremely popular in the fashion world right now, and prom dresses are always on the cutting edge of fashion! Ombre fabrics are also prevalent in the prom world. Ombre fabrics fade a color, or colors, into other colors. Combined colors on a prom dress is nothing new to the prom fashion industry. Black and white is a staple, as is red and black. Alyce Designs has always had a great selection of multi-colored prom dresses. Prints on a prom dress have been making a scene for the past few years. Every year, the prints get brighter and bolder. What started with animal prints has grown to digital prints that include images of everything you could think of! Tony Bowls, a leader in the prom industry, makes a wide selection of printed dresses for the girl who wants to wear a work of art as a prom dress! Feathers, hearts, flowers, and even sea coral has been used in the printed fabrics for prom dresses. Now, before you get too carried away, some girls may want to check with their date to see what color they want to wear. In the South, some guys want to wear the new camo tuxedoes and the girl will go to prom wearing the neon orange color to go with it! Whatever you decide, remember it is your night too, and no matter what, the hype of that night will one day fade away, but the pictures will last you a lifetime!
