We have identified some popular trends for Prom 2012 and highlighted some of our favorite dresses below – all at unbelievably low prices, of course!
Give your Prom look a dose of bling with some glitter. Don’t drape yourself in sparkles from head-to-toe. One glittery piece will do the trick – and will set you apart from the pack of boring dresses. Think Octavia Spencer’s sparkly Oscar look.
The elegant color and cut of this Aidan by Aidan Mattox Sequin Sheath Dress offers the perfect dose of sparkle. We love the belt detail too! 45% off original price of $188.00. FINAL PRICE: $102.80 + Free Shipping at Nordstrom.
Skip that boring frock this year and take your look up a notch with embellishments. Think bows, zippers, belts, studs, rhinestones. Think Emma Stone at the Oscars – her bow was the perfect touch to a simple dress. It’s incredible what a difference it makes when you add just one detail!
This Lipsy Frill Shoulder Wrap Dress incorporates two spring trends: bold colors and embellishments. The shoulder frill adds the perfect pop to an already adorable dress. 70% off original price of $98.48. FINAL PRICE: $29.54 + Free Shipping at Asos.
If you’re feeling bold, rock this River Island Body-Conscious Ruffle One Shoulder Dress. Pair with bright heels and natural makeup. 28% off original price of $62.67. FINAL PRICE: $44.76 + Free Shipping at Asos.
TREND: INSPIRATION FROM MOVIES
Whether you want to be one of the zany pack of gal pals from Bridesmaids or draw inspiration from Katniss Everdeen’s Hunger Games gowns, many of the popular styles for this season are pulled from the silver screen.
This One Shoulder Dress by Allure A472 instantly made us conjure images of The Girl on Fire Dress from The Hunger Games. Channel your inner Katniss! 50% off original price of $310.00. FINAL PRICE: $155.00 at Prom Girl.
You could only hope for a Bridesmaid dress this adorable! We loved the flattering body and the sweetheart neck on this Short Shirred Dress. 50% off original price of $48.00. FINAL PRICE: $24.00 at Prom Girl.
TREND: BOLD COLORS
Black is so last year. We love a little black dress as much as anyone but Prom is the time to shine. Rock this season’s bright reds, blues and greens and make a bold statement. Think Michelle Williams at the Oscars. Offset it with neutral accessories and shoes.
