Floral patterns are classic that often get re-created with modern twists, and floral-patterned dresses are definitely something you can expect to see a lot of this year.

Though any color dress can be made to look chic on the right person with the right accessories, there seem to be certain color palettes that get popular on a yearly basis. This year, pastels are a big hit – blush pinks, sky blues, baby yellows, and lavender, for example, seem to be the choice of many designers. Pastel-colored dresses make for a delicate, feminine aesthetic that is easily complemented by light jewelry and natural hair. Wearing one of these shades is an easy way to look effortlessly elegant on the biggest night of the year.

Shorter dresses are perfect for girls who want to look cute and flirty or even retro, and as an added bonus, you get to show off your shoes! No more hiding your kicks behind the drape of a gown. Some girls prefer these dresses because they're easier to dance in, and others just like to show off their legs. Don't have any hang-ups about whether or not a short dress is formal enough; you can jazz up a dress of any length with the right jewelry.

So, what do you think? Are you going to wear any of these trends to prom this year?
