The definition of prom is promenade: a formal ball held for a school class toward the end of the academic year. However, our society's definition is so much different. The definition for us is, time of year where you get to where an amazing dress, do your hair and makeup, get a date, and hopefully become prom queen/king! Which definition do you like better? I believe you chose letter B. To help you get the amazing dress, I'm going to show you options for a lot of different types of girls styles.

Feminine: Lanvin's beautiful Ostrich feather-trimmed georgette gown($6,720)is sure to make your girly personality shine in this gorgeous floor length gown.
Sporty: This loose jersey maxi dress ($795)by Philosophy di Alberta Perretti is perfect for the sporty girl who wants to be able to move around freely at prom, yet still look amazing.

Punk: This two layer sheer tulle dress($1,335) by Emilio Pucci is perfect for a great dress with that much needed edge to make yourself different than the rest of the girls at prom


Modern: This patterned stretch-jersey halterneck maxi dress($400) by Milly is very in style this year for prom season.

Classic: A beautiful old hollywood glam type of dress is Tibi's Rosette-embellished silk-charmeuse gown($945)
Flirty: This short and flirty Ava ridged satin dress ($600)by Marc by Marc Jacobs is perfect for prom and dancing in.

Romantic: This romantic niji crepe and lace dress($2,970)Erdem is sure to make you the center of attention in the best way possible.
Daring: This Zac Posen angelica crepe-jersey gown($2,255) is a bold color that will show off your personality in a daring way that most girls would be jealous of your confidence. 

Glam: This sequined silk-chiffon dress($6,995) by Stella McCartney has the glitz and glam for potential prom queen because you will definitely look like the queen of the ball.
Sultry: This short lace-sleeve jersey mini-dress($425) by Helmut Lang is perfect for the one who wants to show a little skin in a classy way.
Colorful: You want your ball gown to be chic with a pop of color so you stand out. This adorable folded rosette silk-crepe gown($4,590) by Valentino is perfect for that.
Simple: Jonathan Saunders sequined silk crepe and satin gown($2,335) is perfect for the girl who wants to just be gorgeous.

  10. Thx for your comment !

    The nail polish looks a lot pinker in the pic than its actual color... do you use base & topcoat bc it might help to stop the chipping and also only apply a couple of coats.

  12. really nice post :) My favourite is the punk one, "a great dress to make yourself different than the rest of the girls at prom". . love it! great blog

  13. i LOVE that helmut lang dress! i'm a sucker for black lace, what can I say? <3


  14. Thank you for checking out my blog and for saying hi. I really appreciate it :)
    I'm more into the tube top satin dresses that cut above the knee and are a bit poofy at the bottom for prom dresses.
    I like the pattern on the Milly dress - very summery. I wouldn't wear the dress at that length on myself since I can't pull off such a long dress, but it would be nice to wear on a casual spring/summer day :)

  15. thank you for your comment:)
    love your blog, follow you!

  16. wow, you really touched all the bases! :)

  17. thank you !
    i love those prom dresses

    shame really
    love your blog
    shall we follow eachother?

  18. Amazing dresses! I like the Sultry one best. Wish we would have a real prom here in the Netherlands. We just have erm.... kind of a dance.

    As pretty as

  19. im loving these dresses ! the punk is deff. my fave :)


  20. Oh thank you Samantha for checking out what style of dresses I would typically like :) Yes I do like that Camilla and Marc dress - especially the layers. It's very girly. Love it!

  21. i wish i could wear the Lanvin dress to my prom, sadly its way out of my price range... you have an awsome blog btw! :)

  22. I think Modern may be my favorite look - it makes me think of Nicole Richie's style. Absolutely stunning!! :)

  23. Prom.. Wow. That was so long ago. I wish I could go back in top and go to prom again. {*HAHA} Dressing up and getting your hair and make up done was definitely a lot of fun. Shopping for the dress was crazy!
    There are definitely a ton of options for girls to choose from. Awesome post.

    Btw, thanks for stopping by my blog. =]

  24. That Zac Posen dress is something special. The colour is so vibrant, but the cut of the dress so sophisticated and sexy.

  25. I love the Tibi dress :)
    Personally, I was gonna go with something like Marchesa light grey Embellished silk-chiffon gown, but it's difficult to find a decent knock-off. And I really like most of the shorter Dakota Faning's red carpet looks :D

  26. The punk one is the hottest of the bunch! I probably wouldn't have worn that to my prom though back then haha

  27. I'm glad you like my blog :)

    I love your selection, i think my favourite dress is the 'punk' one ^^

  28. awwwwwwwww i've never been to a prom :( we don't have such things in Italy (and now that i live in Belgium, i'm not much surprised we don't have proms here neither)

    love the flirty dress, absolutely adorable *.*

  29. My favourite's the Emilio Pucci 'punk' dress...although my prom dress was gold and Grecian like!
