Prom 2020 is now just around the corner. To pick a dress for this special night, you should be aware of the top fashion trends. Prom dresses are evolving fast. Now, you can get a red carpet inspired look with the latest design features. Before you buy your dress, it’s a good idea to know the top styles for the upcoming season. This will help you look stylish if you want to be on-trend. These are pretty design elements that are set to be the most popular. You can still pick a dress shape that flatters your body type perfectly. This is just as important as looking trendy.
Most notably, Prom 2020 is all about elegance fused with a glamorous twist. That means that dress silhouettes are quite simple and refined. The beauty is in the details. Sequins, velvet, embellishment, and applique all add a luxurious and full-on glam feel. The dress design is also key. Features such as spaghetti straps, which were a big trend in the 90s and early 00s, are increasingly a favorite as these eras become a big point of inspiration. A backless dress is another top option. This is a great way to show off some skin that looks sexy but not over the top.
As always, there are some styles that always win out, season after season. Mermaid dresses continue to reign supreme and are a top choice for prom goers. This is a classic silhouette that never fails to impress. It’s also famous because it’s so flattering.
Read on to discover the top 5 styles to look out for during Prom 2020.
#1: The Fitted Velvet Dress
Velvet instantly adds texture and sophistication. This gorgeous fabric has a very pretty way of highlighting your figure, while it’s also quite forgiving. As the early 00s return into vogue, velvet is back with a bang – and it looks better than ever. Teamed with a new modern cut, velvet looks fresh and exciting. This can include embellishment, any neckline type, and color. Velvet looks best when it’s quite bodycon and fitted. As seen on this hunter velvet prom dress, velvet looks amazing with a gently flared end and a touch of sparkle. Pick a color such as navy, red or green to really make an impact on your prom night.
#2: Simple but Elegant
Going simple is a good choice for prom. Simplicity just means clean lines, fuss-free detailing and a gorgeous cut. The key to choosing the right one is to focus on the perfect fit. The color should also be striking and make a big impact. Simple designs have the advantage of being quite timeless and elegant. That means you’ll proudly look back at your prom photos in years to come! This red prom dress has spaghetti straps and a flattering wrap style front. The wrap opens up to a high leg slit, which adds a touch of red carpet glam. From behind, the low v-shape also shows off some of your back. What really makes this dress stand out is the color. The bold red shade is sure to turn heads. The stylish silhouette highlights the waist and is also easy to wear.
#3: The Metallic Ballgown
The ballgown style has a traditional prom feel. However, this A-line silhouette looks fresh when teamed with metallic. Shades of silver and gold instantly look modern. You can also find many stylish chiffon and tulle options in this style. This can be teamed with a sheer bodice or floral applique for a unique look. Ballgowns look gorgeous with a sweetheart or v-neck. This teams up well with an on-trend off-the-shoulder cut. As our multi-color metallic ballgown demonstrates, this classic shape can look stylish in many ways. The A-line silhouette is a great choice for many body types and works well as a plus size gown too.
#4: The Sequin Prom Dress
There’s nothing more glamorous than sequins! It’s the best way to sparkle from head-to-toe effortlessly. Sequin dresses can be found in many shapes (mostly form-fitting) and with a variety of necklines. You can even find dresses with reversible sequins that look very textured and luxurious. Wearing a sequin prom dress will make you feel red carpet ready. You can pick just one color, such as subtle black, or go for a multi-color or even metallic option. We love this style when teamed with a simple halter or spaghetti strap v-neck. Keep the rest of your details very simple and minimal to allow the sequins to shine the most!
#5: The New Mermaid
The mermaid silhouette is faultless. It’s comparable to that perfect girl who gets straight As and knows how to contour perfectly. The mermaid dress is a design that’s all about flaunting your curves in all the right places. It makes a gorgeous hourglass shape that suits most women. The fitted bodice and top of half of the skirt should be figure-hugging. The flared tail adds a dramatic finish and balances the silhouette out beautifully. For 2020, this classic style can be found in many new finishes. From sheer layers to glitter fabrics, there is a mermaid dress out there for everyone. That includes many gorgeous color choices. Blush is a favorite for 2020. You can also pick burgundy, navy, white, etc. The best idea is to go with what suits your skin tone.
