We’re always staying up-to-date on the latest prom dress styles here at DressProm and this year we’ve noticed a big shift in the fashion industry toward shoulder-bearing frocks that show just a bit of skin. Off-the-shoulder and two-piece styles are the perfect way to show off your collarbone and shoulders if those are your best features and they look perfect with a statement necklace or a long, wavy hairstyle. Here’s everything you need to know about these sultry prom dress styles.
This particular style is halfway between a dress with sleeves and a sleeveless dress. It features anything from cap sleeves to long sleeves to spaghetti straps, but the sleeves are pushed off the shoulder and situated a bit lower on the arms to create an off-the-shoulder effect that many girls love.
Designers like Blush and Mori Lee are particularly fond of the off-the-shoulder look for its young, sexy style and its versatility. These big name dress brands create glamorous prom dresses featuring off-the-shoulder bodices decorated with swirls of sequins, edgy gowns with long, tight sleeves and off-the-shoulder tops or even boho-style frocks with off-the-shoulder sleeves with bell shapes at the ends.
If your belly is your best feature, show it off in a fun, classy way at the prom with a two-piece dress that shows just a peek of midriff. These unique and modern styles are best for daring girls, as they really lean more toward the contemporary look than the traditional.
Some two-piece dresses feature tank tops in a matching pattern or a solid shade that pairs well with the skirt, while others come with elaborately decorated bodices covered in beading, sequins and embroidery. DressProm even carries two-piece prom dresses with long sleeves to balance out the shorter length of the top portion. Prom dress designers like Rachel Allan and Faviana particularly love the two-piece prom dress trend.
