There's something about prom season that takes me back over fifteen years, when I was going to my own junior prom for the first time. I sort of remember it like it was yesterday. I had so much fun going shopping for beautiful prom dresses with my best friend. I remember us both having certain styles and colors in mind that we wanted to wear, and we spent an entire day just trying on dresses before narrowing it down.
Prom dress shopping can be a lot of fun, but once you stop to look at the price tag, it can also be discouraging. Some dresses will cost you $300.00 or more! If you're looking for cheap prom dresses, I have some fantastic options for you! Prom dresses 2016 season may have already passed by, but now is the time to find prom dresses for next year, if you'll be needing one!
Short prom dresses have really been in style lately. I remember when I went to prom, long dresses were in style. These past few years, short dresses have become very popular. The short dresses are stylish, and tend to be a lot easier to move around in, as well! I love the short style paired with a classic pair of pumps or sandals.
Another prom dress trend to hit the scene recently- red prom dresses. Years ago, pastels were big, and now we're back to jewel tones and royal colors like red, blue and black. Floral prints have also become widely popular among girls looking for prom dresses.
In order to find the perfect dress, you may have to think outside the box, and look beyond just local boutiques and shops. I have acually found that looking for prom dresses UK opens up a whole new world of beautiful dresses I never even knew existed! Style is so beautiful and broad from one country to another, and with shipping easily available, you can select a dress from another country and have it delivered. Just pay attention to sizing, as it may be different than what you're used to in a US dress size.
Once you've worn your dress, you may want to think about saving it for the future. A lot of girls will look for a dress that they might be able to wear for another occasion- such as a wedding, college formal, or special event. If you don't want to hold onto the dress, give it to a younger friend, or think about consigning it to make some extra money. Be sure to take lots of picures of you in the dress, so you'll have some nice memories down the road.
