We really believe that choosing your Prom Dress is the first big dress decision you make.
There will be other dresses you will be expected to choose for birthdays, weddings or cocktail parties, but there is something so very cool about the prom dress. It may not be so important and life-changing as THE wedding dress, however, I think it’s one of the dresses you will definitely remember and think about for a very long time.
Therefore, the choice is not easy, especially as there are so many note-worthy options out there and they all have to be matched to your body shape, of course.
I think that 2012 is definitely the year of the maxi dresses. Prom maxi dresses have the allure of Red Carpet gown and I think they are the ones that capture best this moment. You can always wear that sexy mini dress, but there are not too many occasions to shine in a long princess dress.
So I’ve picked the best Prom Dress styles for 2012, all maxi, all charming! Take a look!
The CORAL Sensation
We all know what a big success the Pantone Color of the year was, so my first choice of fabulous prom dresses at David’s Bridal would be the Coral Dress. You can go either for a princess strapless gown or chose one with thin straps. I love these 2 dresses: one in a stronger tone and one in a peachy coral. Also the embellished corsets are really amazing.
The Printed Princess
There’s nothing more exciting this season than print! I know you’ve seen it by now on practically everything, but I think that a maxi dress is the perfect way to show off a beautiful print. Whether you go for floral or abstract, animal print or digital, print can most certainly make you turn heads! Not to mention that is the most figure-flattering type of dress. 😉
The Glittering Star
Beaded and embellished dresses are probably the most glamorous choice for Prom. They have an elegant appearance and they will make you feel special in any type of event. Because the embellishment is quite heavy usually, try to choose a fabric which highlights your body shape and that has a nice drop. I love the Diva dress on Gold below, but you can go for beading only on a limited area – such as the corset.
