Prom dresses — seams like just yesterday we were buying prom dresses for my little girl — who is now 25. We logged many miles between Erie and Sharon, Pa., to visit The Winner. And local bridal shops also got some of our money — so did websites. Here’s the David’s Bridal take on what’s in for 2014:
Beading – Stones, beads, oversized crystals and mirrored glass will be available on almost every dress. I love it!
Don’t get hemmed in — The high-low hemline takes the worry out of wearing long or short. Teens can have long AND short and tiered cascades and sheer overlays.
Fabrics that flow — Chiffon and matte jersey fabrics, allowing every prom girl to feel like royalty and dance comfortably all night long.
Glamorous gowns – Flattering, dramatic mermaid-like silhouettes are taking over.
Colors – Soft tones of pink and mint green are the coolest color choices, but corals are big– we have at least two of these hanging in the closets at Chez Parker. Orange, tangerine, mango,neon and apricot — orange by any other name — are brightening up the dance floor. Pistachio, honey dew and radiant lime are the new greens. Aqua and turquoise are true blue are .
Ivory and champagne are also the new neutrals. Basically, you can wear any color you want and any style you want. Be comfortable and enjoy the frilly fashions of prom time.
