Fabric & Color
We found that precious luxurious fabrics are on trend for prom dresses 2019, fabrics like satin, silk, chiffon, tulle, lace and velvet. These will be stylish, comfy, and super soft to wear.
How about the color? Black and white are always on trend, classic chromatic options for special occasion wear. The black oozes elegances and mystery, and the white symbolises romance and purity – what a combination! Also trends for prom dresses 2019 are bright prom dresses, they are modern and eye-catching. Or you could choose a neutral or pastel shade dress, and match it with bright colored jewelry, shoes, or a bright handbag.
The world just loves a two-piece beaded dress, they have been a huge trend in 2018, and we see this continuing into 2019! These dresses accentuate the middle part of your body, and the voluminous lower section will add body to that area, balancing your figure wonderfully. We’d recommend simple accessories such as stud earrings with this outfit, as the dress itself will be the main attraction.
Long & Sleeveless dress
Another in style is a long, sleeveless dress with an amazing v-neckline. This dress highlights your bust and appealing waistline. We have seen this dress look fantastic without a neckline and by adding some highlighting powder to emphasise your collarbones. This look is sure to make you feel like a princess.
Flutter-sleeve short dress
Last but not least, the flutter-sleeve short dress will be a total hit in 2019! Though a short dress is not the first choice that springs to mind for a prom dress, 2018 saw this dress crushing prejudices and being pushed by top designers. These prom dresses, particularly lace ones, give a striking look and highlight long legs and your neckline. We would pair it with a v-neckline for even more of a wow factor.
When it comes to accessories, we would recommend a pair of comfortable shoes to match the dress, open toe is always a hit. For the bag, we recommend a trendy small and formal bag, one with a wrist strap for her to hold it safely whilst dancing would be great. Just big enough to carry the necessities.
We also think pairing your prom dress with a light or wrap will look fab. Even if it is unlikely to be cold, it’s always nice to have the option of another layer in case the air conditioning is too high or the evening gets colder than expected. We would go for a light weight chiffon fabric, so it’s easy to carry around.
