6 Floor Length Dresses to Rock at Prom
Written by Project Inspired | March 26, 2013
Last week when we shared our favorite knee length prom dresses, several girls requested that we round up some floor length options. Long dresses are definitely a popular prom choice–the longer length has a more formal feel than shorter styles.
Not into these particular picks? Jenna-worthit13 made a great point in the comments when she said she got her dress at Goodwill for $20. Buying used is an awesome option–try searching through thrift stores and secondhand shops like Plato’s Closet for your dream dress! Post-prom, remember that there are places online where you can sell your used dress or donate it to a local organization.
Check out our six picks for longer prom dresses below!
This gorgeous strapless, taffeta gown has a rhinestone belt along the waist, layers of pleating and a bow that ties at the center back. We love the shape and how über-dressy it is. You’ll feel like you’re at the Oscars! Not comfortable with strapless dresses? A simple, cropped cardigan can solve that problem. (Unique Vintage, $39)
Blue is popular prom choice, and we love the cheery tone of this particular shade. The flattering mermaid style may look a little uncomfortable, but is actually great to dance in because of the full bottom. We love the tulle peaking out in the skirt of this taffeta creation, plus the mismatched floral and thin straps. (Unique Vintage, $69)
Like a more flowing dress? A Grecian style might be a good choice for you. This gown has an empire waistline, beaded collar neckline and flattering, gathered bodice. Not into classic black? They also have the dress in royal blue. (Unique Vintage, $59)
Like a really romantic look? We adore the soft shade of purple, the asymmetrical ruffles at the skirt and blinged-out bodice on this spaghetti-strap gown. (Macy’s, $68)
While white might be too bridal for some, it’s a popular formal color choice that looks stunning on dark-haired girls. This sweetly romantic halter dress features beaded trim along the neckline and a short waterfall gather at the middle. (JCPenney, $45)
… and one more, for the girls with a little bit of spunk. You would definitely turn heads in this dress, which features large, colorful sequins throughout and a purple chiffon empire waistline. It’s not for everyone, but perfect for the right gal! (Unique Vintage, $69)
