Prom designers showcased a number of beautiful, unique dresses that used unusual fabric and design elements to create chic fashions that will be all the rage come Prom 2015!

Timeless Classics: After seeing a resurgence of lace fabric and embellishments in the 2014 collections, I can safely say that lace is here to stay! The feminine and delicate prom styles created with lace fabrications and appliques were shown in many shapes including mermaid, column, ball gown and a-line designs. By incorporating lace into these prom dresses, designers are able to add a true touch of elegance and sophistication. Many of the traditional prom styles that we have come to know and love are still being shown on the runway. Dresses that feature low backs, cut-out sides, or high front slits, as well as dresses made with chiffon skirts, illusion fabrics, and sequins remain favorites amongst prom goers. The quintessential prom looks, including full skirts and lines, also had a minor presence on the runway this season.

Hot Now: Necklines are getting higher! This trend started with celebrities and was definitely reflected on the runway. Not only did I see a lot of halter necks, but there were many dresses made with wide straps and necklines completely covered with illusion fabric and embellished with rhinestones, appliques, or both. Prom dresses using champagne and nude fabrics are quickly becoming a designer favorite. Other popular colors include navy, jewel tones like cranberry and emerald, as well as black. Although these are traditionally fall favorites, prom designers have fallen in love with these more sophisticated hues for spring.
