Every school year, prom dress styles change drastically. If you are a high school girl who is going to be attending your prom this year, you may be wondering what type of prom dress trends you should expect to see when shopping. Here is a list of the most popular 2010 prom dress trends.
Long vs. Short Prom Dresses
For the past few years, short prom dresses have been in. This year, the trend is going to be all about long prom dresses, however. While there will still be some short dresses, they are not nearly as short as other years. A lot of mid-length dresses, which fall just above the knee, are also going to be in this season. In addition, most of the prom dresses for 2010 are going to be sleeker. If you wear a puffy prom dress, you are likely to stick out at your prom this year. Since puffy dresses are often referred to as â€œprincess dresses,â€ you may be getting just what you are asking for.
Open Back Prom Dresses
One of the most popular prom dress trends for 2010 is open back dresses. Some of them may dip low and others may have a design, such as a crisscross. Think Kate HudsonÂ and the gold dress she wore inÂ the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. These dresses will look best on girls who do not have very much back fat, however.
Prom Dresses With Ruffles
There is no doubt that ruffles are going to be one of the biggest trends this season. This is especially true for shorter prom dresses, but there are also going to be quite a few longer prom dresses with a design that consists of ruffles. Another trend with ruffles is going to be an asymmetrical design, in which the prom dress looks like there is one leg not covered by the dress.
Floral and Polka Dot Designs
You are going to be seeing a lot of polka dot and floral designs this prom dress season. The floral designs are often going to be bright and colorful, much like what you would imagine a bathing suit to look like. Whatâ€™s interesting about the polka dots is that they are not going to be in the form of black and white necessarily. The dress may have polka dots in the same color or in silver.
2010 Prom Dress Color Trends
There seem to be three main colors this season which you are going to see a lot of. They are a bright shade of blue or turquoise, red, and purple. Coral is also going to be a fairly popular color trend. You may seem more black prom dresses than you have in recent years.
These are just a few guidelines that you should take into consideration when choosing a prom dress this season. Remember that most girls are only able to go to one prom, however, so it is important to choose the dress that you absolutely love!
