Those BIG, PUFFY ball or wedding dresses are no longer "IN STYLE" for Prom! Unless, of course, You're having a theme prom and that's what You're required to wear!
But if You aren't! The prom fashion trends for this year is taking You from... down the aisle... to RED CARPET!
So if You want to be IN STYLE at Your prom this year, try one of My most wearable trends for the 2013 Prom Fashion season:
Prom Queen: Gold Metallic
Nothing says, "Royalty, look at Me!" like a touch of gold! You've seen it worn by some big names on the red carpet, such Beyonce and Taylor Swift. Gold metallic dresses is one of my most wearable trends for the 2013 Prom season because it can be worn on any skin tone (dark, medium or light). Also, the metallic color is neutral and can be worn with many colors to accessorize and compliment an outfit. You can rock this trend with a matte red lip or a black clutch.
Battle of the Shimmer: Sequins
Its prom time, and every girl wants to "shine bright like a Diamond!" While sequins and embellishment is a traditional touch on most prom dresses, this season's Prom queens have two options to wear it: ALL OVER or ONLY ON THE BUST.
Prom is the perfect occasion to be over the top in an all over sequin dress. I chose this trend for the girls like myself who love a pop of color in their life. No matter what color you chose to wear on prom night turquoise, pink, or purple, it still looks sassy, sexy, and sophisticated in an all over sequins dress.
Also, for the girl with simple taste, such as an easy hair do and minimum make-up this trend is perfect! Because she can be true to her silent self and let her dress make the statement!
Only On the BUST
Now, for the girl who wants to shine beyond her dress, embellishments only on the bustier is the right choice! Upper sequins does give your dress some sparkle but allows you to go overboard on hair and make up and accessories to your wrist and hands.
Also, for the small chested or straight shaped girl, an embellished bustier creates volume to the upper body and defines your midsection and bust.
Prom Date? The Sweetheart Neckline
The sweetheart neckline has to be my MOST FAVORITE trend for this year's prom season. It has a look of effortless class, while creating subtle drama to any dress. The dress could be simple or complicated but this strapless, heart shaped neckline mixes sweet and innocent with sexy and sophisticated. Also, this trend is popular in many different style dresses this season to flatter any body shape.
The Big Reveal: High & Low
My last pick for this year's prom trend is the High-Low or Illusion Skirt. Prom is two events in one... a Formal Dinner and a Big Party. And this is why I like this trend because you have 2 dresses in 1 for your 2 events in 1 night. The longer (low) part of the dress is appropriate for an elegant formal dinner, while the shorter (high) part of the dress is comfortable for a club/dance floor party. Its also a very youthful and fun style for your age.
You'll remember your prom night forever, so why not make all your friends remember you too! Choose one of my Prom 2013 trend picks and woo your date, arrive in style and steal the Prom Queen's spotlight (unless you're the Prom Queen yourself)! I hope this post was helpful! Enjoy your Prom Night, Beautiful!!
