    Polka Dots

    In the mid-1800's, polka dots found their way into the fashion industry, mainly appearing on accessories such as handkerchiefs, bow ties, and scarves. It wasn’t until the 1920’s that the trend truly began to play a featured role in fashion. In the 1920's we saw Miss America, Norma Smallwood, photographed in a polka dot swimsuit and Disney’s Minnie Mouse in her infamous red polka dot dress and matching bow. Polka dot dresses hit peak popularity in the 1950's and the spotty motif has maintained a special place in retro fashion with its playful, charming, and light-hearted allure. This year, polka dots are back in a big way, from being featured on the runways at New York Fashion Week to being a staple in the wardrobes of Hollywood Elite actresses, such as Alison Brie and Brittany Snow. For a classic and playful prom look consider a Polka Dot Prom Dress.

    Jumpsuits

    During the disco era of the 70's, jumpsuits were a nightlife staple of trendy nightspots such as Studio 54 and the Cotton Club. Many will recall Farrah Fawcett in her deep-V cut emerald green jumpsuit in Charlie's Angels. In recent years, jumpsuits have seen a spectacular resurgence, in both evening wear and street style. Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence are just two, of the many Hollywood starlets, that have embraced its renaissance. Now, in 2020, we're seeing the one-piece silhouette gaining massive popularity as a chic choice for fashion-conscious prom goers. Jumpsuits can flatter all body types and come in a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from. The prom jumpsuit is just as formal and appropriate as a dress for the special event but can make a fashion statement like no other garment due to its glamorous yet edgy nature.

  • Prom 2015 Trends To Get Excited About!

    It's officially Prom Season again! All of the new Prom dresses are here, and this year's styles are just stunning. From sparkles to lace to two piece to ball gowns, there are so many gorgeous new looks to choose from that it almost makes it impossible to pick just one. While it can be hard to narrow it down to just one dress, there are certain things you can keep in mind and look out for to help narrow down your choices. One of those important 'check list' items is what's on-trend during a given season, which is what will be focused on here. There are five trends in particular that are set to be very popular for Prom 2015. If you want to ensure you're dressed just like celebrities and red carpet fashion this prom season, start your prom dress search by choosing from one of the below five trends!

    1. High Necklines

    Necklines can be overlooked at times, but they are are big contributor to framing your figure when it comes to choosing just about any outfit (from a prom dress to a work outfit to your causal every day clothes). When choosing a neckline, factor in your bust size, neck length, height, and even the shape of your face.

    High necklines have become popular lately because of their glamorous look and flattering attributes. For one, they make accessorizing easier since many have glitzy beading around the neck that mimics a necklace! In particular, look out for the high neckline halter tops that are gracing this year's prom dresses; they are considered a universally flattering neckline.

    Mori Lee 97052 High Neckline Halter Top Dress

    Mori Lee 97052 is an example of a high neckline halter top dress that would flatter just about any figure. It's a beautifully beaded high neck evening gown with a sexy open back and flowy chiffon skirt.

    2. Sheer Dresses

    Sheer dresses, also known as illusion dresses, were one of the hottest trends of 2014, and will continue to be at the top of the trends list for 2015. Sheer is all about showing off some skin in style and class, and this year's Spring 2015 dresses definitely achieve that.

    What's particularly great about the sheer trend is that you can rock the look as much or as little as you find comfortable. There are dresses that incorporate sheer from head to toe, and then there are dresses that only have sheer in certain areas, like on the bodice.

    Jovani 1255 Sheer Prom Dress

    Dress designer Jovani is all about sheer dresses this year; their Spring 2015 collection is full of a variety of sheer dresses. As an example, Jovani 1255 is a sheer dress that's great for just a little bit of sheer in a traditional ball gown prom dress look. This strapless ball gown features Continue reading
