Trend #2: Metallics

Metallic dresses have been popular for quite some time, and 2020 is no different. This fashion-forward and modern sheen will help you stand out from the crowd with the glamour it offers. This Sherri Hill 52702 is a rich metallic fit and flare silhouette. The plunging v-neck and thigh high slit create visual interest, while the sheen illuminates from every angle.

Trend #3: Sequins

Sequins were trending for homecoming, and now they’re even hotter for prom season! What makes sequins so popular is their uniqueness; they can create a pattern, a gradient, or just add some sparkle to a look. The possibilities are limitless, especially when you mix sequins with metallic colors. The perfect sequin dress to help you make a statement at prom is Ellie Wilde EW119025. This style shows off an allover sequin lace, a deep v-neck with an illusion panel, double cross back straps, and a horsehair hem with a sweep train. With all these details, every part of this dress is appreciated and noticed!
*Available in red, royal blue, wine, and turquoise

Trend #4: Flowy A-Line Silhouettes

If fitted dresses aren’t your thing and you’d rather go for big and flowy, you’re in luck because the A-line silhouette is a major trend for the 2020 prom season! These dresses are feminine without compromising the comfort and support everyone craves for prom night. A great choice is Sydney’s Closet 7258, which showcases a deep v-neck with a lace bodice and a beaded waistband. A-lines are a timeless silhouette that are sure to demand the same attention when you look back at photos.
*Available in black, red, and royal blue

Trend #5: Red Carpet Glam

Don’t just be prom ready, be red carpet ready! This trend is all about showing off your silhouette, looking bold, and often including a thigh high slit. A night under the lights requires glamorous details like sparkling sequins and dazzling beading. Sheer skirts and panels also add an extra wow factor. The go-to for this trend is Jovani 02047, which has everything you’d ever want in a prom dress like a beadwork that cascades down the sheer skirt of the gown. This style also shows off an open back, plunging neckline, and a thigh high slit. If you’re red carpet ready, there’s no doubt you’re prom ready too!
*Available in light blue and lilac
