I know prom is fast approaching, and I’ve received requests from several friends to share some suggestions for dresses! I plan to split these suggestions into subcategories to make it easier for you to refine your search. I’ll include links for all of the websites on which you can find your dresses, which will be displayed on the bottom of the photos. Above the photos are a brief annotation on important information of the dresses. You will look your best wearing what you feel your best in, because your beauty really comes from the inside! I know I sound cheesy, but it is a cliché for a reason. And that reason would be because it’s true.
The first few dresses are the most expensive so don’t get discouraged!
*If you attend my school, I request you text or email me when you purchase a dress to ensure you don’t end up wearing the same one as somebody else! Let the shopping begin!
To be upfront, this dress is $650. If you can afford this, I highly recommend it, the dress is beautiful and I can only dream of wearing it. If you can’t afford it, we are in the same boat, my friend. If you have enormous calves, don’t fret! This is the dress for you! Just kidding 😉 Mermaid dresses are one of my favorite cuts though! Also, Sherri Hill is a very well-known label and of the best quality. Peaches Boutique
If you have dark complexion, a ripped abdomen, and $225 to spare, you’ve found the dress for you! This dress is great for pear, hourglass, and rectangle body types. It comes in several colors, including ivory, plum, and black which look good with almost any skin tone. For the Sherri Hill, it’s a great price. Henri’s
$300. Sherri Hill. One of my personal favorites. Highly recommend. Prom Girl
Red rose dress from Henri’s $325.
This dress from Henri’s is on sale now for $249! The color reminds me of Açai; Berry cute.
Prom Girl Ok, Ill be honest, I debated putting this dress on here because I may buy it for prom and I didn’t want anyone to have the same dress as me. The red satin is sexy and complements dark skin and hair as seen below. Guess the cat is out of the bag now! $268
This dress is perfect for apple-shaped girls but truly flatters every body type! It’s also great for anyone who is self-conscious about their upper body or wants to show off their legs. With unique sleeves, this dress will make you stand out, and parents will love it because it’s classy not flashy ;). At $177, it’s a fair price.
This dress is classic. At $180, it is expensive for its quality, but the cut makes up for that fault. This dress shows the perfect amount of skin while still leaving plenty to the imagination, and it flatters all body types. The draping over the shoulders really sets this dress apart from the others. You will get plenty of attention and compliments wearing this, plus it comes in an array of colors. This is one of my personal favorites and I would wear it to prom myself. I suggest the navy color for females with blonde hair, the contrast draws the eye. Also, this dress sells out fast, so hop on it while you can.
Prom Girl $298
This is one of the best $200 prom dresses i’ve seen. I may be biased because of my Sherri Hill obsession. Henri’s
Asos I! Love! This! Dress! $53.
If you’re a true Queen B fan like me, you will automatically recognize this dress. It is strikingly similar to the one Beyoncé wears in her Hold Up music video, but a little more “promy.” It’s also only $117 and looks royal on all body types. This takes confidence to wear, but isn’t that what being unique is all about?
This dress speaks volumes about your personality. Whomever wears this is bold and outside of the box. The black makes the dress sexy while the flowers bring a playful, relaxed vibe that lets others know you don’t take yourself too seriously. Also, if you’ve been out of touch with the trends lately, embroidery and roses are super in. This dress draws attention to the legs while accentuating your curves. At $119, this dress won’t break the bank. The longer I look at it, the more I like it. Keep jewelry to a minimum while wearing this, or it will compete with the pattern for the spotlight and confuse the eye. I recommend flat silver rings or sans jewelry.
Rent a dress!!
This is a great idea if you will never wear the dress again and you’re trying to save $$$! Let’s face it, we all have those dresses that sit at the back of our closets, collecting dust, that were a little to pricey to be back there. Let’s not do that again.
Greek goddess dress you can borrow for only $85!
I just discovered this store and they have some cute, low priced dresses! Here are some of the best ones.
This dress is made to look like the emerald Kendall Jenner dress. I fell in love when I saw Kendall wearing it. My only concern is that the fabric might look too cheap for prom.
Another green Windsor dress $69. Over the shoulder is coming back in style and ruffles are a trend you should try.
$59, Windsor. The shoes are Steve Madden. The model’s makeup also goes really well with this dress and gives her a fresh yet put togeather look.
$79, Windsor The rose gold sparkles will make you stand out–especially in photos.
This dress is made by Capulet and is a steal at $120 on Revolve. While it is available in nude and champagne, nude is pictured below. This dress projects and elegant and sultry image and highlights your bust. With its sexy simplicity it gives you the “Oh, I look great? I wasn’t even trying” look.
