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 very 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 still gives you the ability 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 of those nude and champagne accessories that are everywhere right now, 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 are tickling our sartorial senses with their pretty neutral pink color tone.
Bow down – this regal style ballgown has the traditional princess vibe with a modern twist. The clean lines of this dramatic silhouette draw attention to this sharp design. Free from embellishment, this dress plays with minimalism but with statement layers that add that a jaw-drop moment when you first catch a glimpse of it.
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.
The A-Line silhouette is one that’s 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 this will subtly create some gentle curves. The floaty sheer skirt flares and the embellished elements really 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 you look. Wavy side-parted hair and a dark smoky eye will add some red carpet inspired touches to this prom ensemble.
Prefer a more form-fitting look? This jersey blush prom dress is all about showing off your curves and letting your figure shine. The embellished bodice is glamorous with silver and gold sequin embellishments.
The back of this dress has crossed straps over an otherwise open back, while the skirt half skims your hips and flares towards the end, creating an hourglass silhouette that is so complementary. This balanced look has plenty of sparkle 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.
Bring a high dose of red carpet glam to your prom look with this thigh-high leg split dress. With a stunning plunging neckline (that features a sheer insert so it’s easy to wear) and beaded waistband, this sophisticated blush look has glittering waves of beautiful embellishments and an open back that’s giving us modern Gatsby vibes.
This piece also has a dramatic train that will sweep the floor as you enter prom, adding a dramatic focus point that makes this really 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 will 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 beauty look. Silver metallic nails are easy to DIY and a great choice for this outfit.
The mermaid silhouette is a favorite for prom – and for good reason. This hourglass creating style is just so flattering and looks amazing on any body type or shape. This particular blush mermaid dress is a fluffy marshmallow-y dream that has so many amazing features.
From the sheer short sleeve bodice that’s embellished with sparkling beadwork, to the tiers of light horsehair trim on the tail, this dress is a work of art! This light and delicate look has that on-trend nude illusion look but you’ll find this piece so easy to wear on your prom night.
Team this up with a clutch and heels that coordinate with the embellishment detail. Keep jewelry minimal and let the dress do most of the talking as there’s already so much going on that catches the eye. Add natural glowing makeup and a ballerina bun – refined beauty will keep focus on the dress.
