Let’s talk about looking your stunning best to create the prom experience that you will remember for a lifetime! The thing about prom is that it is a celebration of the woman you have become. It marks the end of your childhood and the beginning of your adulthood. It is a celebration of puberty with all its ups and downs. It is your grand blossoming. Prom honors the friendships you have made in high school and perhaps the relationship or budding romance you have cultivated with that one special person. It is also a celebration of platonic love however way you cut it. Prom is an exploration of what it means to be formal, fancy and maybe even treat yourself to some luxuries for one evening. Here we’re going to talk about the latest prom dress trends and how you can go about deciding which is best for you:
1. Long Flowing Full-Length Skirts
Increasingly, we are realizing that we can be feminine and elegant while being comfortable at the same time! The great thing about a long, flowing skirt is that it is classically feminine while allowing for a great degree of movement. The skirt flares like a flower when you spin across the dance floor and you don’t have to keep your legs crossed to the nines to be proper when you sit in a generous skirt like this one. You don’t have to take short, mincing steps like you would in a form-fitting mermaid tail. So be elegant while claiming your bodily freedom. It’s your birthright. Tobi prom dresses gets this! These long flowing skirts come in everything from silky shiny to matte material to a thicker form of velvet. A high waist or A-line creates a fabulous curve between your waist and your hips. You can wear your best high heels, or you can let the skirt do the talking and choose a more casual lower heel or flat fit for getting down on the dance floor.
2. Off-the-Shoulder Straps
We love off-the-shoulder straps because they draw the eye to the collarbones and the majestic arc of well-toned shoulders. Off-the-shoulder straps can be thick or thin and they create a gorgeous space for a really radical necklace or a simple silver or gold chain.
3. One-shoulder Top
One-shoulder tops are reminiscent of the togas of popularized in ancient Greece and Rome. They can even be a nod toward the wild archetype of Tarzan of the Jungle when paired with a daring print.
A good strapless gown contains enough structure in the bodice that you’re not spending your entire night hauling it up and making sure that the girls are covered. We recommend shopping carefully for strapless gowns. Whether the dress fits your breasts is going to matter with this style. If you’re larger chested, make sure you’re not under-cutting yourself because it might leave you unsure of how far you can lift your arms up. If you’re not sure, visit our store and an associate can help you out with the right fit and size.
5. Flutter Sleeves
You don’t have to bare lots of skin to be killing it with elegance! Flutter sleeves are all the rage this year. They flutter like the wings of a butterfly and just as they cover the shoulders so slightly, the armholes end well below the armpits, exposing a sexy bit of skin along the side of your torso.
From the short dress to the maxi dress, whatever you choose, be your confident best! Every woman of every build is destined for greatness and the right dress can really help you show the world what you’re made of!
