Rhinestones Are a Girl’s Best Friend

Rhinestones and beading are reaching a whole new level with intricate designs featuring geometric patterns. Clear and colored gem stones off all sizes will come into play creating colorful beaded gowns with a fresh new take on bejeweling.

Highs and Lows

The high low skirt is making its mark on gowns too. This unique dress style has been seen all over the red carpet worn by Hollywood’s elite. Now it is your turn to slip into a high low cut-out dress with an ombre tone that gives you a chance to proudly strut those legs!

Crop Tops and Floor Length Skirts

This is hands down the “it” style of prom season. There are an endless array of styles to choose from so every girl can have her own unique take on the crop top gown. The little bit of midriff that peaks out hits right at the most flattering part of the natural waist creating that beautiful hourglass effect.

Cocktail Hour

The shorter the hem, the easier it is to dance the night. At least, that seems to be the idea behind wearing an ultra-glam cocktail dress to prom. Lace, rhinestones, A-line skirts, tulle—you name it, any style can be cocktail-ified.

Illusions

With a sheer mesh panel that covers up a plunging neckline you have the illusion of baring it all with a more modest approach. Whether it is complemented by intricately placed beading or strategically cut jersey fabric in a floor length cut, the illusion dress is sexy and sleek.

Sleek and Simple

Keep things simple and elegant with fitted styles that have minimal beadwork or gemstones, if any. These gowns bring focus to the body’s shape and curves.

Prom 2017 Color Trends

When you have settled on a style, it’s time to choose the perfect color. This season the hottest colors are Red Emerald, Black, Royal Blue and Silver or Platinum.

Bright Floral Prints for Prom

Oct 4, 2016

Floral Prints for Prom

Floral prints are a timeless design that will not disappoint. Now, there is a difference between timeless and dated. Timeless is forever. Years from now when you are looking through all your prom pics there is one thing that will standout: your dress. When you go with a stunning floral print, you will never have to worry about cringing with embarrassment when it is time to reminisce.

Push aside thoughts of Grandma’s curtains and imagine gorgeous floral prints and appliques in vibrant colors and luxurious fabrics. Yes, that’s fabrics, as in more than one. Satin, tulles, jersey, lace, and neoprene are a few of the fabrics floral dresses are crafted from.

With floral prints there are a few different categories these dresses fall into. Each one has its own special allure that will appeal to different personality types. You will get everything from strong and statuesque to sweet and feminine. Here are few styles to consider:

Dramatic and Dark

Glide onto the dance floor drenched in mystery with dark floral prints. Dark floral prints over a deep red is one way to go—especially if becoming one with the night is on your mind.

The classic black and white combo is another fantastic dramatically dark option. A tulle overlay and the plunging sweetheart neckline softens the whole look.

Short and Sweet

Short floral printed dresses and short floral rhinestone dresses are the fun and flirty option. They have a higher hem that is perfect for dancing and showing off cute shoes. Going with floral gems, you have the extra fun of sparkling with every twirl.

Roses Are Forever

Roses are a classic symbol of beauty and elegance. Be a beacon for romance in a red rose floral print or brighten things up with the essence of spring with light pink roses and sweet meadow flowers.

Floral Appliques and Embellishment

Maybe prints aren’t bold enough for your evening look. Floral appliques add texture to a two dimensional design. For a softer, pretty in pink look, tulle flowers with gem stone centers will do the trick. For beauty queens in the making a lemon and ivory gown with yellow gem stones and black lace flower appliques should peak your interest.
