How to Choose a Prom Dress
Veronica Delfino: With so many beautiful dresses it’s hard to choose just one. Hi I'm Veronica with WatchMojo.com and today we’re looking at the latest trends for this year’s prom. So what are the popular trends this year for prom?
Cathy Wilson: Trend in particular is really strong whether they're an animal inspired with zebra or floral they're really great when they're combined together. The red carpet look is ever popular. We offer dresses that are long and glamorous and satins that are unbraid. Our glitter dresses are really pop. The run way look as well. And then we have a baby doll look that short and it kind of replaces a long ball ground, a lot of tool and very princessy. We can't forget black and white. Ever classic and it’s really where the dots, polka dots work well.
Veronica Delfino: Are we seeing any past trends that are still popular this year?
Cathy Wilson: The Cinderella look that continues from last year. The girls really looked like that princess look and rosettes continue from last year.
Veronica Delfino: Now and so many beautiful dresses what's the best way to choose one for you? It’s important that you're going to be comfortable in the dress. Bring your mom or a girlfriend, a trusted girlfriend when you're trying on the dress. It’s great to have appropriate underpinnings and shoes when you're trying on a dress and you have to love it.
Cathy Wilson: So now you have some different dresses to show us.
Veronica Delfino: Yeah, a couple of great looks. Let’s go take a look. This is a perfect dress this season. It’s offering the Cinderella pick up look. It’s got the glitter and with all that’s going on with the bow and glitter you really just need a little bit of accent of the bracelets which helped the pink and pearls pop. We talked about red carpet glam. This is a perfect dress for it. It’s long, brushing details, really exaggerates the body. It’s got Rhine stone detail, a nice halter neck line and you’ve got additional bling of a ring.
This dress has a lot of great things going for it. First of all it’s figure flattering. It’s got the great purples we spoke about the yellows. It’s got some reds in it, blues. We chose earrings with just a little bit of the color of the dress just to bring out the purple and then of course we can't forget the ring.
