Girlies, who’s going to prom soon? A lot of women wince when they look back at their prom photos (ask your mom or aunt!). Why? Many of us wore trendy dresses that have since gone out of style–WAY out of style! So, our advice for first-time prom goers is to keep your dress classy and simple while still putting your personality into it.
For those in warmer climates, you might buck the floor-length trend and go for something shorter. Or, if it’s a little chilly where you are during prom season, you can always consider tights and a wrap.
Check out our five picks for shorter prom dresses below!
This dress is perfect for a lady who likes coverage up top and some flounce in the skirt! Red is a timeless dress color, but the Peter Pan collar and pleated skirt give the look a fresh nod while keeping it classy. (ModCloth, $40)
This knit shift dress screams romance and is effortlessly elegant and ladylike. The intricate lace neck is a unique look that will surely make you stand out in the crowd–in a good way! (ModCloth, $55)
If you’re thinking, “This is prom; where’s the glitter!?” then this dress might be the best choice for you! The periwinkle shade definitely screams “prom,” and we love the taffeta lining and glittery mesh skirt. It’s also available in champagne. (JCPenney, $25)
Who’s ready to dance? You’ll look great on the dance floor in this flared dress. Check out that gorgeously eye-catching red rosette strap! Scared the stripes make it look less formal? Check out the ModCloth page, where members who have purchased the dress have posted photos of themselves. Nearly all of them are at formal events–and looking fab! (ModCloth, $58)
If you really want to sparkle from head to toe, this gorgeous ombre black-to-blue party dress might be for you. Not many life occasions call for this much glitter, so take advantage of the chance to wear something shiny! A black cardigan or bolero would be the perfect (modest!) finishing touch. (JCPenney, $25)
