Velvet is back as a trending fabric and this is set to continue for the seasons ahead. Velvet pieces always look formal and sophisticated – and this navy gown is no exception. Its cap sleeve cut is the epitome of understated chic.
The sleeves are covered in swirls of embellishment, adding a luxurious and sparkling touch. The design is otherwise a smooth navy blue shade. This dress gently hugs your shape with a flared end and short train from behind.
This piece is designed to show off your figure in a subtle, sophisticated way. It lets the statement velvet take center stage, allowing this fluid fabric to work its magic unharnessed. A focus is placed on creating an hourglass look that is so flattering.
Team this gown with a pair of sky-high silver heels and a mirror clutch. Add a smoky eye and a statement hair look such as a braided crown. This will also team up with a bold lip color such as a red-tinted orange lipstick.
This plunging halter dress takes glamour to new heights. Its a red carpet silhouette that has so many gorgeous features. This show-stopper should be photographed from every angle when prom night rolls around!
The bodice is accented with gold beads which again feature in lines that run down the back. The bodice includes a dramatic diamond-shaped cut-out with sheer panel. From behind, there’s an open back, with the gold bead-work shining on the straps.
This daring navy dress is sexy and confident. The clever design creates lines that have a stunning slimming effect on the eye. It flaunts your figure while remaining easy to wear.
Team this up with cat-eye eyeliner and a glowing complexion. Add a loose up-do that best displays the backless feature of this dress. Then, classic gold heels and a clutch are all you need to complete this outfit for prom.
With the new ‘Wonder Woman’ movie smashing records, we want a slice of some super-hero style for ourselves. This dress features a long sheer cape, giving this gown a fantastical and unusual twist. It will set your prom look apart on your big night.
This piece includes a jewel-encrusted high neckline from which the cape drapes gracefully. The bodice includes a middle triangle-shaped cut-out that drops to the waistband. The design is pleated all over, creating even more amazing flow and movement.
The skirt drapes from the high waistband, meaning it highlights your narrowest point. The pleated deep blue fabric will look almost oceanic as it flows across the dance floor. This is given a further layer of depth with the addition of the sheer floor-length cape.
Team this up with silver to match the neckline embellishment. A pair of silver chandelier earrings is all the jewelry you need. Add metallic minimal silver heels and a reflective silver clutch to complete your prom look.
There’s something about fit and flare silhouettes that we can’t get enough of. They are just so universally flattering and create a beautiful, feminine shape. This navy blue gown is all the explanation you need.
The figure-hugging fitted bodice features light blue lace teamed up with sheer paneling. That includes a plunging neckline and a round, plunging back. The skirt half then flares dramatically from the waist. It includes a sheer overlay which adds another dimension to the overall look.
This easy-to-wear prom dress stands out as unique with its contrasting lighter bodice and lace work. The skirt is artfully crafted to add a traditional formal ball gown element. It all combines together so harmoniously.
Play up the light blue bodice by adding sky blue heels and a matching clutch. Opt for a deep navy eyeshadow and loose, side-parted curled hair. A sparkling blue manicure and a bracelet complete this dress perfectly.
If you’re looking for something alternative albeit fashion-forward, opt for a two piece. This still ticks the boxes for prom – it’s a formal look consisting of a cropped top and long gown-style skirt. This navy embellished design shows just a flash of midriff.
The top is encrusted in glittering bead-work. It includes a lace overlay and sheer panels. It has so many gorgeous rich details and is the focal point of this look.
The skirt half has a sparkling belted waist and flows beautifully to the floor. It even has a side split to show off some leg that adds a high dose of sexiness. The fabric is slightly ruched at the waist, which means it’s so flattering too.
Team this up with bronze heels and a bronze clutch with shimmering accents. Add contoured cheekbones and a red lip to add to the glamour. Sleek, straight hair and a ring set on your fingers are unique finishing touches.
