With the Prom 2023 season just around the corner, it’s time to shop for the perfect prom dress. Before you hit up your local boutiques or start browsing online, a little research goes a long way. Taking note of some of the biggest trends for 2018 will help you figure out what to expect and what aligns with your personal taste too.
For 2018, expect many neutral, muted colors. Shades like light pink/blush, silver, and champagne will be everywhere. This includes ‘nude’, a flesh tone-inspired shade that is peachy and has a barely-there look. Nude dresses often overlay with added metallic detailing such as embellishment or beadwork. This creates an amazing 3D look that is really modern and on-trend for prom.
In many stores, you’ll also notice that velvet is a popular trend for the season. Velvet dresses in all colors are set to make a big impact for prom and have a pretty red carpet look.
Today, we’ll be focusing on nude beaded dresses. These gorgeous gowns create a bridge between The Great Gatsby and the latest Parisian collections fresh off the runway to create an elegant, fashion-forward prom look.
Do not be daunted by nude pieces. They may have a somewhat naked/nude look, but their layers of fabric make them so comfortable to wear, just the same as any other prom dress. They are structured beautifully with tactical design to provide support where you need it. This may be a sheer insert under the arms or at the neckline, making the gown effortless to wear all night long.
Nude Beaded Prom Dresses for 2018
Nude Silver Beaded V Neck Fitted Prom Dress 57612
This plunging v-neck gown combines a nude underlay with sparkling silver beadwork, calling to mind a sparkling diamond. The stunning beads create a unique pattern, drawing attention to the waist and bodice.
This prom dress is for the confident girl to flaunt her shape. It has a fitted look, hugging your body with a gently flared end. This slight fishtail creates a beautiful hourglass silhouette that has such a red carpet vibe.
The plunging v-neck includes narrow embellished straps, and the v-shape is echoed from behind. If you love that 20s Gatsby style and want to steal it for prom, this dress is calling your name!
To accessorize this, add silver or nude heels and a matching clutch. Keep jewels minimal – the beadwork already adds so much sparkle. An up-do hairstyle will show off the v-shaped back detail beautifully and look amazing in photographs.
Silver Nude Crystal Embellished V Neck Low Back Prom Dress 58559
Once again, combining nude with silver to create a gorgeous final look, this daring prom dress is even sexier than the previous style. It features an even deeper plunging v-neckline (held up with a sheer insert), a low back, and, to top it off, a stunning leg slit.
The leg slit draws your eye to the sheer end of this amazing gown. The rest of the dress is beaded with glittering crystals that catch the light and sparkle endlessly. The nude underlay stops at mini length, subtly showing off your legs beneath the sheer material. This is a great option if you’ve been considering a short prom dress and can’t make your mind up.
Your legs will be on show, so don’t forget to add a great pair of heels to complete your look. A simple minimalist pair of sandals in a beige or blush tone is an easy way to style this prom look.
