    Everywhere she goes she leaves a little sparkle! When it comes to the glitter trend, all that glitters is truly gold. This fashion trend proves to be both lasting and widely applauded.

    Ruffles Galore

    Ruffles are another trend that is back from the 80's. This trend is revisiting the runway in the form of ruffled collars and shoulders, tiered ruffled skirts, and ruffled slits. Many designers have added a ruffle to their designs as an accent while others have featured ruffles as the main event. If you want to add a little 80's inspo to your prom night consider one of these fun Ruffle Prom Dress styles.

    Yellow is always a popular spring color; however, lately, we've seen yellow in all seasons and in all shades. From Marigold to Saffron, all the shades of yellow are fashionable this season. The spring runway shows were filled with optimistic shades of yellow. Some have even referred to "Spongebob yellow" as the color of the season. If you're looking to don the color of the season, consider a Yellow Prom Dress for 2020.

    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.

    Shine brighter than the stars with the glamorous styles of Old Hollywood. Today's fashion continues to be inspired by Hollywood's Golden Age. From Rita Hayworth's black strapless 'Put the Blame on Mame' gown to Marilyn Monroe's unforgettable 'Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend' pink dress, old Hollywood has been setting the standard for glamour.  See your name in lights when you walk the red carpet in a floor-length gown of satin, velvet, or dazzling sequins.

    Floral Prints

    Flower motifs may just be the most popular of the spring 2020 prints. The spring runways were filled with small and large florals. For prom 2020 we are seeing romantic floral prints on flowing chiffon dresses, delicate floral embroidery on tulle ball gowns, and gowns accented with three-dimensional floral appliques.

    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. Check out this selection of Prom Jumpsuits:

    Pleats

    Believe it or not, the technique of pleating garments began in ancient Egypt and was used to decorate the tunics of its rulers. Pleats, which were made by hand, symbolized power and wealth. In 2020, pleats are popular for fashion purposes as well as their ability to provide freedom of movement to the wearer. So, lucky for you, you won’t need to be a ruler to rule Prom 2020! Pleated dresses are all the rage this prom season and there are numerous options available from top designers such as Sherri Hill and Alyce Paris. Will you rule prom in a Pleated Prom Dress?

  • Nikki Novak in Sherri Hill at the 2019 Golden Globes

    Awards Season always has us dreaming of the Prom Season ahead. This year's Golden Globes especially had us thinking prom because of one particular actress' perfect red carpet look. If you can't guess, or didn't get to watch the 2019 Golden Globes, the actress we're talking about is Nikki Novak! The actress stunned us on the red carpet by wearing one of our favorite designers: Sherri Hill!

    A post shared by Sherri Hill (@sherrihill) on


    This is an extra special Sherri Hill dress, too, because it's one that you can wear to prom. She is wearing Sherri Hill style 52448, a brand new dress that's available for Prom 2019! The gown features delicate floral details that we're obsessing over. Nikki wore the Light Blue color, but this gown also comes in Coral, Light Green, and Yellow - all colors that remind us of the warmer spring months to come.

    Since Sherri Hill 52448 is such a unique, stand-out look, we recommend keeping the accessories minimal, just like Nikki did on the Golden Globes red carpet. It can certainly be fun to wear a pair of stand-out heels, though, like Nikki's sparkly heels, since the overskirt is see-through! Grab a pair of heels similar to Nikki's with Jupiter by Touch Ups.

    If you haven't heard the name Nikki Novak before, Nikki is known for movies The Holiday, The Bucket List, and Any Given Sunday. She is also a Fandango correspondent and film correspondent for The Today Show, Access, E! News, and Extra. Keep a look-out for her on more red carpets - you never know when you might catch her in another Sherri Hill dress!

  • Bat Mitzvah Dress Testimonial: Jessi Kaplan

    Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are a very special celebration time for a family. It's the celebration of the coming of age for young boys and girls, so are certainly the best of occasions to rock a fun party dress!

    Jessi Kaplan, from South Florida, recently celebrated her Bat Mitzvah, and she did so in style. She rocked two gorgeous looks from RissyRoos.com to celebrate the special day: one for the Bat Mitzvah service and one for the party. Jessi's not the only gal of honor who rocked a Rissy Roo's dress at her Bat Mizvah, though - her mom, Randee, did, too! Check out what Jessie and Randee wore to celebrate the special day, and what Randee had to say about the looks, below.

    "I just wanted to thank you so much again for all of your help with the dresses for Jessi’s Bat Mitzvah! If you get an influx of South Floridians ordering Bat Mitzvah dresses for kids and moms now, you’ll know why! I know a lot of people and everyone has been asking me where I got our dresses! Thanks again for everything!
    xoxo, Randee"

    For Jessi's Bat Mitzvah service, Jessi wore Sherri Hill style 51521 in gold, a lace v-neck a-line dress.

    Sherri Hill 51521

    Sherri Hill 51521 features a sheer lace bodice, with a sweetheart neckline, opaque bra cups, lace tank straps, and an open square back, with a zipper closure. The beautiful short a-line skirt features an opaque underlay and scalloped hem. To top it all off, the entire dress is sprinkled with delicate jewels.

    Sherri Hill 51521

    Sherri Hill 51521 was the perfect choice for a glamorous look that's still conservative enough for a Bat Mitzvah service. Plus, the gold of the Sherri Hill dress perfectly matched Jessi's talit.JVN by Jovani JVN54472

    When it was time to celebrate the special day during Jessi's Bat Mitzvah party, Jessi went full-on glam! She wore JVN by Jovani style JVN54472, a shimmering two-piece party dress.

    JVN by Jovani JVN54472

    Jovani JVN54472 is a colorful show-stopper dress that is covered in dazzling sequins and accented with a floral embroidered pattern on the crop top and on the hip of the skirt. The bodice has two on-trend features: a high neck and an open back. Our favorite part of this dress, though, is another trend - the ombre effect of sequins that gives it such a stand-out look!

    JVN by Jovani JVN54472

    How cute are the pink knee-high socks that Jessi wore for her party? The socks are such a fun (and comfortable) touch!

    Jessi's mom, Randee, was dressed to impress for the Bat Mitzvah party, too. Randee also wore a Jovani dress to the party. She wore Jovani style 58646, but with a twist - she cut the floor-length gown to be a short dress! Check out the dress on our website to see it as a floor-length gown. It's a perfect choice for prom!

    Jovani 58646

    Jovani 58646 blossoms with a floral print, made entirely of sequins, that couldn't be more gorgeous. The halter has a deep plunge neckline and halter straps, and the square back has lace-up corset details and a tie closure.

    Jovani style 58646

    We love that Randee topped off her look with such fun floral high heels - it was the perfect touch to the Jovani dress!

    We're so glad to hear that Jessi and Randee had such a fun time at Jessi's Bat Mizvah and loved their dresses! Congratulations, and we hope you remember this special day for many, many years to come, Jessi!

  • Giuliana Rancic Rocked Sherri Hill at the 2018 Golden Globes

    The 75th Golden Globe Awards was held on Sunday, January 7th in Beverly Hills, California. The vibe was much different than past award ceremonies. The 2018 Golden Globes, which honored film and American television of 2017, did much more than honoring celebrities. It was the first awards ceremony to take place after many Hollywood sexual abuse cases have come into the news as of late, and the awards ceremony made sure to take the time to address the issue.

    Everyone dressed in black in solidarity with people who have been victims of sexual abuse. There was also talk about Time's Up, Hollywood's new initiative to get victims of sexual harassment in low-income jobs legal help. It also has a goal of pushing anti-harassment legislation.

    The most talked-about moment was when Oprah Winfrey took the stage. She was on stage to accept the Cecil B DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. It was a special moment, as she was the first black woman to take home the award. In her acceptance speech, she honored the past, and urged all to be hopeful for the future. If you missed the moving speech, watch it below.

    Oprah's speech was so powerful, and to see all of the celebrity women walk the red carpet in black added to the special meaning behind this year's Golden Globes. This year's ceremony was a show of power, not the usual fashion.

    With that said, we saw one celebrity walking the Golden Globes red carpet in one of our favorite designers. Of course we got excited over it! Giuliana Rancic rocked a Sherri Hill dress! She wore Sherri Hill style 51735, in black a conscious choice to support the #MeToo movement and women empowerment.

    The E! News host always has great style, so it was no surprise to see her rock a Sherri Hill gown. The top of the sparkling gown features a criss-cross neckline and keyhole. The bottom of the gown runs straight from her waist to the carpet. It was a classic silhouette, with just enough glamour for the perfect red carpet presence.

    While this dress looks beautiful in black, and had a very important meaning behind the color for Giuliana, this dress also comes in many other colors. You can choose to rock it at prom in Rose Gold, Gold, Jade, Navy, Purple, Red, Royal, or Black like Giuliana.

  • Watch The Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2018 Runway Show

    We may be going into the cooler fall and winter months, but dress designer Sherri Hill is in full Prom 2018 mode with steaming hot new looks. While the new Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2018 Collection isn't available yet, the designer held their runway show on Tuesday, September 13, 2017 as a preview of what's to come.

    The entire show was streamed live on Facebook, and we are obsessing over all of the new styles! If you missed the live stream, watch the entire Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2018 Runway Show below.

    It looks like fringe is coming back in full-force with Sherri Hill for the upcoming season. So many looks featured chic fringe detail that we can't wait to get our hands on. Other than fringe, there were lots of bold colors, unique patterns and embellishments, florals, jumpsuits, dresses with capes, and lots of sparkles.

    The gorgeous new Sherri Hill dresses are not the only reason that we loved what we saw on the Sherri Hill Spring/Summer 2018 runway. We also loved who we saw on the runway! In case you missed it, actor Jamie Foxx's daughter, Corinne Foxx, was one of Sherri Hill's models. InStyle went behind the scenes to show the 23-year-old transforming into a bonafide supermodel. Watch the video below.  Continue reading
