The American phenomenon of the end of school ‘prom’ hit British shores around a decade ago in full force and now attending your school prom can be a year in the planning. From hair and make-up, to accessories and shoes it’s every teenager’s finale as a high school student before stepping out into the big wide world.
Nowadays girls searching for their prom dress can take as much time and effort as searching for a wedding gown so its best to start planning for your big night in advance. This seasons trends for prom dresses include cut out cold shoulders, strong block colours, fishtail skirts, exposed backs and delicate embellishments – all oozing sophistication and glamour for young prom queens.
Silhouette shapes are in this season, the Salvador gown from Tariq Ediz is a classic example of this – the beautiful material contours the body with a mesh overlay across the chest. For something more unique the Romantica has a separate top and skirt ensemble which flatters the figure as it skims down to the floor with a skater skirt hem.
If you want to add some bright colour to your gown, opt for ‘Malini’ a sunflower yellow gown with full graduated skirt and dipped exposed back. Alternatively, bring some tropical flavour to your look with Sylvia – a sleeveless plunging v-neckline dress. Pinched in at the waist by a contrasting belt, the bold floral print will make any prom queen stand out on the night.
