Blush is undoubtedly one of the biggest fashion trends of the moment. This soft feminine shade has been all over the runways for the last few seasons and is now a ubiquitous color trend that’s infiltrating our technology (the iPhone’s rose gold shade may have even started it all) and even more elements of the design world. In practical terms, it’s a gorgeous and wearable shade that looks modern and flattering.
That’s why we love blush prom dresses! Choosing this color is a simple shortcut to looking fashion-forward for your big night. It also allows you to choose a final look that reflects your personal style because there are many different designs available in this shade.
Effortless to wear, this teams up with all those nude and champagne accessories everywhere, including the trending ‘barely there’ heels that we can’t get enough of! Without further ado, we take a look at the most beautiful blush dresses for prom 2017 that tickle our sartorial senses with their pretty neutral pink color tone.

It’s so unique and timeless – that flattering sweetheart neckline and couture-Esque artfully folded satin fabric make this a ‘forever’ piece that transcends trends. This is the best blush dress for you if you love this color trend but still want to opt for quite a vintage or classic prom look. Pair with sparkling silver jewels and a chignon bun to polish this off with an air of elegance.
Blush A-Line Evening Dress 25660
The A-Line silhouette is famously flattering. With a slim belted waistband, this gorgeous embellished dress is floaty and opulent in equal measure. Adorned with beaded applique that spreads out along the skirt, this stunning look features a fitted bodice with a sweetheart neckline and wide shoulder straps that make it very easy to wear.
The waistline means you’ll show off your slimmest point and subtly create some gentle curves. The floaty sheer skirt flares and the embellished elements pop against the sheer layer. This will look beautiful when in motion!
Team this dress up with gorgeous gold heels and earrings. Add a beige or nude clutch to complete your look. Wavy side-parted hair and a dark smoky eye will add some red carpet inspired touches to this prom ensemble.

This balanced look has plenty of sparkles and is so fashion-forward (plus, it’s going to be incredible in photographs from every angle).
Team this up with gladiator sky-high heels, a beaded clutch, and a half-up braided hairstyle to give this an original and sexy twist. A smoky eye paired with a nude lip will add a dark, glamorous edge. This dress would combine well with a statement manicure too.

This piece also has a dramatic train that will sweep the floor as you enter prom, adding a dramatic focal point that makes this stand out. Make sure you wear amazing shoes with this dress, as the leg slit will put your footwear on display. A pair of nude minimal sandals and a silver mirror clutch give you a Hollywood-inspired final prom look.
Keep hair simple with glossy polished hair, and opt for pink or peach hued makeup. Add coordinating chandelier earrings to draw attention to your beautiful look. Silver metallic nails are easy to DIY and a great choice for this outfit.
