Here are five dress styles that are appropriate for prom:

1. The Two-Way Dress

We love how absolutely efficient this look is; if you’re not quite keen on splurging on a dress that you’ll only wear a few times in your life, find your go-to neutral cocktail dress and a long skirt in a similar shade.

Find a brooch or a jewel-encrusted belt for the waistline to blend the seams, creating a more fluid look.

Can’t find a maxi skirt in a similar shade? Head on over to the nearest fabric store to create a makeshift skirt (just make sure it holds up to avoid a prom disaster).

2. The Sweetheart Neckline

Who said big fluffy skirts in shades of white were only apt for weddings? We say go for that Disney dress that you’ve been dreaming of since you were a little kid, but make sure to choose one in an off-white shade.

4. The One-Shoulder

You don’t need to bare skin to look glamorous. If you would rather cover up without looking like you walked into a pile of your grandma’s clothes, we suggest going for the classic one-shoulder.

5. The Grecian Goddess

With the current entertainment trend circling around mythical creatures and fantasy dramas, it is no surprise that the fashion industry, especially in the blogging world, would succumb to the romantic braids and flowy fabrics of Hollywood.
