For 2018, look for figure-skimming silhouettes embellished with intricate sequins and beads. Spaghetti straps and original cutouts mean dresses are more diverse than ever. Now, let’s take a look at the Top 5 Prom Dress Trends for 2018.
Trend #1: Metallic Magic
The red carpet has been filled this year with metallic tones of gold, silver, and bronze. There are metallic shades for every skin tone so it’s a great look for everybody.
Trend #2: The Open Back
The most on-trend way to show skin for Prom 2018 is with a plunging open back. Open back dresses can look conservative while still being sexy. The key to rocking this look is to highlight it! Keep your hair to the side or put it up in a bun.
Trend #3: Soft Pastel
If metallic shine and style isn’t your thing, look to soft pastel colors as a trendy alternative. Blush, lilac, mint, and pale blue are all great choices.
Trend #4: Cutouts & Strappy Details
Other ways to make your dress your own are with cutouts and the unique use of straps. Spaghetti straps are on point because it gives a 90s vibe. You’ll be right on trend when the DJ plays Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s 90s themed “Finesse”. Mix straps with an open back dress or one that has sheer panels. Sheer panels allow you to show your midriff, sides, or back while holding the dress together.
Trend #5: Velvet
Velvet is a wonderful fabric for a dress. It can be worn and look classically timeless, or can go more vintage. The texture is great to the touch and it looks great in pictures. The secret to velvet is picking the right color. Look to colors like hot pink, deep emerald green, or regal navy blue when finding the perfect dress for you.
