As, I sit here and look out the window at all of this snow, it is hard to believe that spring is just around the corner. And with spring comes many exciting times- Prom, graduation, SUMMER...to name a few.
Everyone knows one of the most important things about Prom is your dress- have you started shopping for yours yet? If not, don't worry, there's still time! And if you're local, I know Bridals by Sandra in Nazareth would love to help you find the perfect dress.
Oh and hey- check out the SVP Model Team '19 - they got to model some of this year's hottest Prom trends for our first "official" shoot!
2018 Prom Trends
1. Ball Gowns
Big, full skirts are back! Paris runways were filled with ball gowns this year and they were also spotted all over the red carpet. Now, they make their way back to Prom!
2. Metallic Accents (Sparkles & Sequins)
Metallic shades have set the red carpet alight with glittering tones of gold, silver and bronze. This striking celebrity trend is elegant, modern and so flattering.
3. Head to Toe Sequins
Bring on the bling in a gown embellished with golden sequins or brocade. Metallics are very fashionable, and gold is the hottest choice this year. This universally flattering metallic hue works on all complexions and is just perfect to steal the spotlight. It is also a versatile choice that works well with any hairstyle and makeup. You hardly need any accessories to complete your prom day look, when your dress is opulent with golden details.
A gown with gorgeous trimming flawlessly suits the fanciful occasion and stands out among a sea of dresses on the dance floor. Punctuate your prom style with an elaborate ensemble that overflows with elegance. Try intricate floral stitching if you’re a total romantic, or blend several trends with a lace illusion look for an enchanting entrance they won’t soon forget.
Don't be afraid to rock a bold print to Prom. Floral prints are back this year and bigger and better than ever.
6. Off The Shoulder
Cold shoulders are one of the biggest trends of the moment! The off-the-shoulder look is making its way into formal wear in a big way. For a look that's romantic yet elegant, this is the one for you.
7. Two Piece/ Separates
Incredibly versatile, two-pieces are the way to go if you love unique and customized looks. It allows you to mix and match colors and textures to make your own fashion statement. With the right style of top and skirt, you can create any silhouette whether it is a mermaid, sheath, fit and flare or A-line. You can also pick different colors for the top and bottom. The latest trend is to pair a crop top with a skirt, so you have a separate bodice and skirt that comes together while showing off a bit of skin.
8. Shades of Blue.
Cinderella wore blue for a reason - it's an unforgettable color that looks good on everyone! This color can be paired with endless accents: Try gold for a classic and traditional look, silver for a more contemporary look, or bronze/ rose gold for an antique allure.
