    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.

    Old Hollywood Glamour

    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.

    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?
