How to Find the Perfect Prom Dress

Prom dresses come in just about every color and style you can think of. From satin mermaid silhouettes and shimmering two-piece dresses, to tulle ball gowns and classic A-line dresses, the possibilities are endless! Finding your dream dress can seem like an overwhelming, almost impossible task, but we’re here to help simplify your search. Here are a few tips on finding the perfect prom dress to dance the night away in:



Color

Let’s start with the basics: prom dresses are made in every color of the rainbow. Having so many beautiful options to choose from, the first step to narrowing them all down is to select a color that best suits your features. Neon dresses make tanned skin pop, while pastel dresses pair well with fair complexions. 



Silhouette

When selecting a silhouette, we recommend opting for whichever you feel most comfortable in. If you’re looking to flatter your curves, opt for a mermaid or fit and flare silhouette. If you are doubting whether you’ll have enough mobility in a fitted silhouette, opt for an A-line or ball gown. The key here is to consider how you’ll want your dress to fit according to what your plans for prom are. If you’re looking for support, you may want to lean towards a dress with sleeves to keep it from shimmying out of place as you dance the night away. 



Textures

Textures can transform any silhouette in a number of ways. For a glamorous, red-carpet-ready type of look, look for a prom dress with feathers, sequins, or beading woven throughout its design. If sophisticated elegance is more your style, opt for a satin gown with solid, smooth texture. For more youthful, flirty tastes, we recommend prom dresses with floral appliqués, lace, or fabric slits.
