Prom dressing was something I’ve looked forward to since I was in the 3rd grade. I have 10 Things I Hate About You to thank primarily for that. That midriff-baring, princess-skirted prom ensemble that Bianca wore was something I wanted more than most 6-year-old girls want a pony. It was a big thing. And though the style tides had changed by the time prom came around for me, I still treated my ensemble like I was going to the freakin’ Academy Awards. True story. And after I was dressed to some nineties high-school movie nines, nothing could trample my spirits.
When it comes to finding the top dresses that will make you the talk of the school, Macy’s mstylelab is here to make the search a one-stop operation. Because it’s not just a dress you need. There’s shoes! A bag! Jewelry! Gah! Kind of stressful.
Luckily, Style Lab experts Dana and Joslyn give us a rundown of leading looks for this year’s prom season. If you’re the a flashy, glam-rock chick, “shine on” with some dresses that will have you glimmering like an adorable disco ball. More into old Hollywood? Give ‘em a good “back story” and showcase the back of your gown with inventive cutouts or embellishments. Or if you’re more into a bold chromatic statement, have a “bright idea” and go for a gown with a vibrant hue to match your bubbly aura.
For all these looks and more, check out the Macy’s mstylelab website! And get excited. Because you’re gonna dance your face off, and you’re gonna look real good doing it!
