Prom 2013 Trends

With prom season just around the corner, it is important to follow the trends, yet make them your own. Check out some of the frocks that we think would make a great choice this season.

Sometimes June can get a little balmy, or perhaps your legs are your best asset, so why not show them off with a short hem? Balance the look out with longer sleeves or a higher neckline to avoid showing too much skin all at once. Remember, prom is a time to keep it classy. Try this Sherri Hill dress.

If you love to stand out, there is no better way to garner some attention than with a little razzle dazzle. Strategically placed sequins show movement throughout the body and add that Ms.America glamour. Try this Sherri Hill gown.

Nothing screams femininity like dainty appliques. When strategically placed they can add fullness to wherever they are applied, whether it be the bust or waist. They also add interest and texture to what might be a pretty bland silhouette. Try this Forever Unique dress.

Angelina Jolie made the leg slit famous and you can carry on the torch this prom. Opt for a floor sweeping gown that has a deep peek-a-boo slit on the side. It is elegant, timeless and feminine. Try this maxi dress by Needle & Thread.

Peplum has been all the rage this season, so why not crossover this trend to your prom-wear? This dress, by Georgina Chapman of Marchesa for Pearl (her diffusion line, sold at JC Penney) is the perfect choice. The angled ruffles and short hem draw all the attention to your hips and make your waist look teeny.
