Taffeta designs are made in ruched bodices with bow or rosette designs on the side with side drapes such as styles 07807 and 37061.

What will be the most popular color for a prom dress in 2024?

apricot the color of 2024

Back in September, the color specialists from WGSN and Coloro declared Apricot Crush as the official color for 2024. Apricot Crush is a versatile color that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

For a formal event, pair it with other rich colors like black, navy, or emerald green. For a more casual occasion, pair it with lighter colors like white, cream, or light blue. As we saw in the New York fashion show in September, Apricot Crush has been popping up on the runways and in fashion magazines, indicating that it is a trending color. It is a warm, optimistic, and flattering color that is trending more in the fashion industry.

Even before Apricot Crush was named the official color in 2024, Jovani was ahead of the trend. We already included dresses in similar hues like apricot, cafe, champagne, and light gold in our 2023/2024 line.

The beautiful Jovani 02445 dress sparkles with its glittery mesh and decorative details. It captures the essence of warmth and celebration. Its shimmer mirrors a gentle starlight, adding a touch of magic to any special occasion.d

Now that “Apricot Crush” is named the color of 2024, we’re excited to use this bright, happy color in our new dress designs. From sleek sheath dresses to flowing ball gowns, expect to see a variety of styles shining in Apricot Crush.

At Jovani, we love to celebrate what makes each person unique and always keep up with the latest styles. Using the year’s color, we help ensure you’ll look super trendy on your special night.

We want to keep making outfits that are both trendy and classic.

A Look Back: Prom Dress Evolution Through the Decades
 Jovani Vintage Design

Looking back at the progression of prom dress fashion over time is inspiring as we welcome the latest trends for 2023. Prom styles started fairly restrained, with high necklines and longer skirts popular in the 1940s-50s.

By contrast, gown cuts became much bolder during the sixties and seventies. Hemlines got shorter, and designs more daring than ever before! In the 80s, we saw many different colors in fashion. Moving to the early 2000s, clothes kept classic shapes.

But they added a fun twist. They did this with cool details on the material or by adding cutouts.

Reflecting on Style Evolutions: From 1940s Prom Dresses to Modern Jovani Creations:

In fashion, the 1940s and 1950s were defined by an air of refined elegance. During these decades, prom dresses often featured longer hemlines, extending to the floor or tea-length.

This was a time of modesty and simplicity, largely influenced by the war rationing that required styles to be understated. Even with these changes, the dresses always stayed classy. They often had pretty ruffles. They also used delicate tulle decorations. And, of course, they had classic bows.

Styles from these past decades have lasted. They’ve even inspired modern designs. These older fashion parts are used in new ways today. This shows how fashion can be timeless and always come back around. Fashion keeps changing, and so does Jovani.

We’ve added new, bold designs to our collection. You’ll see dresses with fun cut-outs, sparkly decorations, and many bright colors. And we don’t just stick to one style or length. We want to offer a variety of choices because everyone is unique and has their taste in fashion.

So, while Jovani keeps changing and creating new styles, we’ll always remember where we came from. We’ll keep blending the old and the new, creating dresses that make everyone feel special and stylish.

Bold and Bright: 1980s to Early 2000s Prom Fashion

The 1980s and early 2000s were pretty exciting times in fashion, especially for prom dresses, and Jovani was at the forefront of those trends. When it comes to prom dresses, many people know the name Jovani. That’s because Jovani makes designs that fit the style of the time.

In the 1980s, Jovani’s long prom dresses reflected the bold, daring style that was popular then. Bright colors were everywhere, and polka-dot prints were a big deal. Imagine stepping onto the dance floor in a dress that sparkles in neon pink or electric blue, covered with fun polka dots.

Imagine that dress with an oversized bow on the back or at the waist. That’s the quintessential 80s Jovani prom dress for you!

In the 1990s, the style started shifting a bit. The bright, in-your-face colors from the 80s started to fade away, and darker colors, especially black, started to come into fashion. Picture a long, elegant black dress that goes to the floor.

It’s sleek and slim, just like a sheath, and it’s adorned with a touch of fur, maybe around the neckline or the sleeves. This style is more sophisticated and less playful than the 80s but still has a big impact. It’s a dress bound to make you feel glamorous and elegant on your prom night.

As we entered the early 2000s, Jovani prom dresses showed more creativity and flair. The color palette expanded once again, and beading became a big trend. This wasn’t just a couple of beads here and there, but rather intricate designs that covered entire sections of the dresses.

These designs looked great with creative hairstyles. Some people chose fancy updos, while others went for loose waves. To add more sparkle and glamour, they also used glittery hair accessories. All these elements together completed their beautiful prom look.

That’s how Jovani prom dresses evolved from the 1980s through the early 2000s. Every era had its special fashion trends. But one thing remained consistent. Jovani excelled at creating dresses that turned heads and made prom nights unforgettable. Their unique designs always captured people’s attention, leaving a lasting impression.

Are Sequins in Style for 2024?

In 2023, a star of the show in fashion, especially for Jovani, was sequin dresses. Sequins are small, shiny discs sewn onto clothing to make them sparkle and shine. These dresses lit up the room with their glimmer, making the wearer stand out and shine like a star!

One of the showstoppers was a blue and multicolor sequin dress style 3192. Now, imagine a dress covered with these shimmering sequins in various colors. When the light hits the dress, it creates an explosion of color, just like a rainbow.

Another stunning sequin style that Jovani introduced was 07068, made with stretch sequin fabric. This fabric can stretch and hug your body perfectly, ensuring a great fit.

This dress was form-fitting, meaning it closely followed your body’s shape. A highlight of this design was the high feather slit on the floor-length skirt. This meant the dress had a cut or opening that went up the leg, adding a dramatic touch.

These dresses made a big splash in 2023, and the good news is that Jovani isn’t stopping there! They’ll continue to design more gorgeous sequin styles for those who prefer a touch of glam in their wardrobe.

Whether heading to a dance, a party, or any special event, you can look forward to shining brightly in a Jovani sequin dress.

In conclusion, the Jovani 2024 fall collection is set to showcase a stunning array of unique and captivating designs.

Drawing inspiration from fashion trends, celebrity styles, and customer preferences. Jovani is committed to creating dresses that will make you feel confident, stylish, and unforgettable.
