Of course no prom dress roundup would be complete without plenty of sparkle! Sequins, paillettes, and hundreds of beads—you love sparkling in the spotlight. From sparkling on a bodice, to all over spangles, this look is sure to get you noticed! 

Neutrals

We love this look! It’s so classic and we can’t help but think it was inspired by The Great Gatsby. Adding plenty of sparkles, beading, and amazing detail keeps these gorgeous dresses looking fresh, unique, and totally red carpet worthy.

Color

We shared how much we loved bright dresses, and we are loving that all things colorful are right on trend. This prom dress trend is perfect for those girls who would choose a yellow, coral, or spring green over a neutral any day! We especially love this trend when paired with an embellished bodice—it’s so fun and flirty! (Bonus: That’s the gorgeous Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo in the Sherri Hill, so you know this dress is hot!)

Sleek Silhouettes

We love seeing all the pretty silhouettes our prom girls choose. Sleek silhouettes were a definite trend this year—a beautiful way to show off your pretty figure! Extra details like a high slit, embellished halter, or pretty ruching really makes this look look even more tailored.

PROM Trend Alert: Blush!

We posted this gorgeous Sherri Hill Prom dress over on our Facebook page and…no surprise here…you guys LOVED it! Blush is a huge trend this year and for good reason. It’s such a beautiful color that looks pretty, feminine, and sophisticated. And there are so many different ways to wear it! From short dresses, to lace gowns, we’ve rounded up our favorite blush dresses. If you’re looking for something perfectly pretty and stylish for Prom, this post is for YOU!

Lace Gown

Lace and blush come together in these prom dresses for prettiness. Corset styling, rich embellishments, beading, and sexy cutouts are just a few things that make these blush lace gowns stand out even more. Perfect for that classic Prom look! We’re especially loving Sherri Hill 4311 (center) because of the gorgeous hand beading in blush. 

Sequined Gown

As if we didn’t love blush enough, the sparkling sequins on these gowns make us swoon even more. Perfect for adding a little pop! to an otherwise demure gown. Sequined dresses can add just a little sparkle, but we are really drawn towards Shail K. 3338 (center) because it really makes a statement! You’ll have no trouble shining in a gown like this!

Short Dress

And for those of your who love to rock short dresses to Prom (so do we!), these blush dresses are for you! Perfect for showing off an awesome pair of shoes, great legs, and making sure you can dance all night! We’re feeling partial to Sherri Hill 11092 because of the gorgeous contrast between the blush and black lace.

Celebrity Style Matchup: Beyonce’s Grammy Awards Dress

Of course Beyonce was one of our favorite looks from the Grammy Awards on Sunday. After performing on stage, Queen B looked fierce as ever in a gorgeous sheer and white lace gown. 

If you’re in the mood to show off in a fierce way, this post is for you! We’ve rounded up nine of our favorite dresses for those who want to bare it all and those who want to keep their lace look a little tamer. Check ‘em out below and tell us which look you’d love to rock on your own special night.

Not Afraid to Show Some Skin

These gowns are for those not afraid to show some skin. Like Beyonce, you know you look great and you love to show off! 

A sheer plunging neckline mimics B’s look in gowns from Mac Duggal {left}and Sherri Hill {middle}. A bit of corset structure adds support to your lace look in another great Mac Duggal gown{right}. Adding a touch of tulle gives you your own spin on her gorgeous look! 

A Little More Coverage, Please

You’ve got great fashion sense and awesome self-confidence, but are looking for a gown with a little more coverage. 

Two amazing gowns from Jovani give that “nude” feel with pleeenty of coverage. We especially love the Jovani with long sleeves. Perfectly trendy and modest. Sherri Hill {middle} gives the perfect blend of sheer and lace with a beautiful sheer neckline, lace sleeves, and daring slit. 

Love the Look…in a Short Dress

If you love the floral lace and sheer look, but want something short and flirty, these fun dresses are for you!

Each of these Sherri Hill dresses capture that sheer and lace look in a pretty mini dress. Perfect for showing off a great pair of legs and great shoulders! B would definitely approve!

Sarah Hyland choose a pretty pale pink hue for her dress. Its simple silhouette gave her lots of freedom to play with her hair and makeup—the perfect balance.
