On Wednesdays We Wear Pink: 4 Pale Pink Prom Dresses You’ll Adore
Ahhhh, pink. The color of love, magic, and all the sweetness in the world; girls are groomed to love the color pink from a young age. Princesses in our favorite Disney movies swing down swaths of their own golden hair wearing primarily pink dresses, and waltz around a ballroom while their blue dress is poofed back to perfect pink by a magical fairy. We dream of pink clouds of cotton candy at the state fair, pink bicycles with magenta streamers blowing in the wind, hot pink sparkly shoes and beautiful blush bows in our hair. Many of us grow out of our love of pink and move on to other hues, but many us do not. For these dedicated pink-aholics, there is only one hue for the prom dress she has always been dreaming of – pink. This blog post is for you, pink lovers – we salute your obsession with the world’s girliest, most feminine hue. We’re a bit partial to pink ourselves here at JVN, so get ready to think pink as we run down the list of our favorite pink prom dresses for Prom 2017. From barely blushing to cotton candy pink, our affordable yet stylish prom dress picks are going to rock your (very pink) world.
Dress #1: Pearl Embellished Blush Pink Prom Dress by JVN – JVN98420
This prom dress is one of the sweetest, most delicate designs for prom 2017. It’s a great pick for ultra-feminine types who want to look ethereal and beautiful at the same time. The long flowing skirt is simple and understated, but the bodice of the dress is embellished with pearls of different sizes, layered on top of a mesh effect. This dress is also perfect for girls who want to stay covered up and modest, but still make a style statement at prom. The sweetheart neckline gives the top of the dress visual interest, but it doesn’t reveal cleavage thanks to the light pink layer of
mesh that goes all the way to the shoulders and neck.
The pale blush color looks good on most skin types unless you naturally already have pink skin undertones. Gorgeous brown and tan olive skin tones naturally pop against the pretty light pink, making it a perfect pick for bronzed goddesses. We love the idea of wearing your hair up with this dress since the bodice goes all the way to the neck. The dress is fairly conservative, so we love the idea of juxtaposing the gown with a loose, relaxed bun and a few hanging tendrils. Pair the dress with metallic accessories – a champagne colored clutch and simple strappy heels would complement this look nicely. For accessories, you can either accentuate the pearl bodice by donning a pair of large pearl studs, or play up the metallic accessories with dangling gold earrings.
If the last prom dress was ultra-conservative, this one is va-va-voom. Sultry sirens who pick up this pink dress will love how it hugs and flatters their curves. It’s a perfect pick for ladies who love their top half, but feel more comfortable with a skirt that flows over the hips and thighs. The tulle skirt on this dress creates a beautiful movement while walking into a room or busting a move on the dance floor. What we love most about this dress is the unique way the appliqué is overlapped on the bodice to create a beautiful floral pattern. It’s girly and sexy at the same time – perfect for taking prom by storm.
If your skin tone was too pale for our first blush dress but you love lighter shades, you will positively glow in this cotton candy pink. Blondes happen to look especially radiant in this color pink, and it’s a dress that definitely brings out a girl’s inner princess in all the best ways. Accessorize this pink prom dress with a dainty gold necklace and sparkling gemstone earrings. A statement ring that matches the earrings is a nice touch for a fairytale look. Finish your ensemble off with a pair of peep toe pumps in a nude or gold color.
Floral fans will be giddy with excitement over JVN’s latest ballgown – the base color of the dress is a gorgeous light pink and the skirt features the loveliest oversize florals in a range of pinks and green. This ballgown silhouette is another more conservative, modest pick for a prom dress. It looks great on a wide range of body types, and helps camouflage any trouble spots in the hip and thigh region with the flowing ballgown skirt. The waist is nipped in and accented with a band of the same floral design that accentuates the skirt.
What we love about this gown is that although it’s a more conservative, modest prom dress, it’s still very much in vogue thanks to the trend-forward oversize florals. What would make it even more of a standout pick for prom is adding some gorgeous floral-inspired accessories. Consider finding a clutch that picks up on the floral element, perhaps a grey subtle floral pattern or a clutch that has a rhinestone flower at the clasp. Carry this theme through your other accessories as well – rhinestone studs in the shape of a flower or leaves and scrappy heels that wrap around your ankles like vines continue the floral homage and play up the uniqueness of this dress. Throw hair up simply in a soft chignon and go retro with a classic black wingtip liner and bold false lashes to match. A pretty pink lipstick or gloss plus flawless skin finishes off this gorgeous look.
Dress #4: Sleek Blush Pink Jersey Illusion Prom Dress – JVN25139
If you love pink but dislike frills and ballgown skirts, this sleek blush pink little number has your name on it. This dress is simple and sleek with a high neck halter top and a body-skimming jersey fabric. Although it’s simple in design, it’s anything but boring thanks to the eye-catching illusion mesh cutouts in the dress’s design. The peek of skin from underneath the light pink mesh creates a visual interest that is hard to rival. And the best part? The jersey and mesh materials are insanely comfortable and keep everything in place, perfect for dancing the night away to all your favorite DJ tunes.
Thanks to the sleek design of this gown, you can go a little louder with your choice of accessories. Large bejeweled earrings, bold cuffs and dramatic makeup will take this look to a whole new level of fabulosity. Pairing this dress with sky-high stilettos will further lengthen the leg and give you supermodel stature. Feel free to go bold with your shoes, it’s fun when a pop of pattern or unique design peeks out from below the simple skirt. Stick with a sleek prom hairstyle for this dress to play up the fashion-forward simplicity of the design. Volume on top with slicked back sides is very high fashion, as is a high ponytail that has been straightened from top to bottom.
