The prom dress for 2016 is all about subtle detailing, chic and delicate embellishments and neutral color palette.
Vibrant colors – According to color trend experts, brighter the better. Ombre is huge this year, from nail polish to hairstyles to prom outfits. It can fade from one color to another or show lot of variations in one color. Neon hued clothing are an excellent way to make a statement. Purple, coral, shades of green and blue are in vogue. Pastel colors like mint and nude pink continue to rule. Classic colors like black and red are still going to grab the attention of the buyers.
Lace – Lace brings elegance, poise and a stroke of femininity to your prom dress. High lace neckline or lace overlay can add a prominent feature to the outfits. The color is no longer restricted to white or ivory, bold colors have already made their way.
Hemlines and silhouettes – Fit and flare dresses that go from a short front hem to a floor length dress are a good choice. Gowns and mermaid dresses flaring out from the knee are in vogue.
High slit – High slit dresses can make you look sexy, sophisticated and chic. And this year it seems to be inching higher and higher.
Sheer illusion – Chiffon and jersey are hot materials for 2016. Illusion fabrics are see-through material without having to expose the skin. Every designer has added this design to their new collection that gives us exposed necklines and sheer bodices.
High-low dresses – A high-low style, short in the front and long in the back or a mini skirt with an overlay, is a good selection for prom night. This style has been around for years and continues to remain popular. It can have a different color for the lining, a print underskirt or a sheer train can make one feel like a princess.
Short skirts with see-through overlay – The blend of party dress and gown is much in demand this year. The neat look can make one look fresh and sexy, thus showing off one’s long legs.
Peplum skirt – It suits all body types. It is fun, sophisticated and unique. It first gained an impetus last season with Peplum top and the recent popularity of this style on the red carpet has made it an attractive dress for prom!
