Prom Picks For The Most Stylish Soiree Of The Year

The countdown to Prom has begun. I know it can be quite the journey looking for the perfect and most fabulous frock.  There is budget to consider, age, figure, and appropriateness.  I have seen my fair share of tacky or too trendy gowns, and have always felt sorry for the poor girl wearing it.  I believe that good style can be found at all price points.  You just need a discerning eye, and most of all, know your body type! And what I mean by that is - for instance - a too thin or too heavy arm just isn't a good look in a sleeveless dress. Please use this post as a starting point for your own search for the perfect prom dress.  

Here: 12 Chic Choices For Your Own
Stylish Soiree

Sherri Hill Embellished Silk Dress
This fit and flare style is just as cute as can be.  Think of how fun it would be to dance in? Love the fact that the nude and metallics of this dress was featured so prominently at the Oscars this year. 

P.S. Nordstrom's has free shipping and returns, which makes it a great option for Prom Shopping on line.

Virgos Lounge Raina Maxi Dress with Embellished Shoulder
A pretty pick for those that want to avoid sleeveless. Don't worry, you can show some skin with the scooped back.  See how the chiffon flows on the runway at

Tadashi Shoji
Strapless Lace Inset Pintuck Jersey Gown
High fashion and gorgeous in wild orchid!

Betsey Johnson Illusion Dress
Sheer is another trend for red carpet events. This is a fun frock.  A Betsey dress is always a good choice for a fancy occasion.

Sherri Hill
Sequin Coated Chiffon Gown
I am not big on sequins, as they tend to look cheap unless it is done by an expensive designer, like Donna Karan.  But this color intrigued me. It's happy and bright.  The sequins look rather well done when enlarged.

ABS by Allen Schwartz Strapless Bustier 
Words cannot express how much I love this dress. It's a classic.  I was the only girl who wore black at my prom, back in the day, and I loved that!

Trina Turk Column Dress
Dare to be different! This is a sleek and modern design for the minimalist girl. Love the bold color. Very chic and not very expensive.  See it on the runway at
Saks Fifth Avenue

Free People Spotty Dotty
Perfect for the girl who wants a sleeve and a dress with edge!

Back Cutout Strapless Dress With Shawl
If you are troubled with arms, this might be the way to go. The wrap will cover the part of the arm that needs covering. 

Aidan Mattox
Faux Leather & Tulle Ballgown
One of my fave looks for prom!

Ana's Limited Edition Dress
Dropped waist and drop dead gorgeous. It's only sold on line at Free People, so you won't see yourself coming and going!

Notte by Marchesa Swathed Strapless 
Love this Origami-inspired swathed sheath.  It is sophisticated yet not too overdone for a teen.
Shop Bop

Shopbop offers Free 3 day shipping and returns, too.
