The long awaited prom season is fast approaching. Although you’ve probably been thinking of what you’re going to wear for a while now, take my advice to make sure you stand out from the rest of the crowd.

I’m a big fan of the lace look this season. There are plenty of ways to wear this classic style and still look elegantly chic. This blue gown from Catherine Deane has a beautiful silhouette that is form fitted but still tasteful.

You can also embody the lace look in a shorter dress that has a younger feel to it. I love white lace because it looks beautiful on almost any skin tone and has a youthful feel to it. This dress from Keepsake is a great find, great quality though very reasonably priced.

If you want to pick a dress that will stand out from the rest definitely look into For Love & Lemons. This red cocktail dress is adorable and unique from any other prom dress I’ve seen this season. It embodies the lace which I love with a color that pops and will stand out in any photo.

Elegance is always key when it comes to prom. This Grecian look is beautiful, classy, and always a classic when it comes to black tie affairs. The dress from Twobirds is great with a cinch at the waist that allows you to show off your figure while the silk fabric keeps the looks tasteful and classy.

The black and white look is always a safe bet but try spicing up the dress’ style to do something different. This design from Elizabeth and James is a great look with the high neckline but short cut that keeps the dress flirty and fun.

This black dress from Rachel Pally is another way to embody black and rock a high neckline that still looks sleek. The dress’ form fit keeps it youthful while elegantly classic.

Last but not least you cannot go wrong with a great red dress. This dress from ONE by Contrarian is a classic black tie style that you can re-wear for many occasions after prom. It’s elegant cut with a sleek open back is timeless. It also comes in a variety of colors so you have multiple options to choose from.
