Prom Trends
by Holly Becker

Prom styles and trends these days are light years away from when I was going to prom, I mean everything from the colors, to all the tulle, satin and glitter… SO MUCH GLITTER. Today’s prom trends are more red carpet glam, and we are loving it. We talked to area experts as well as did some of our own research and came up with the six top trends for PROM 2017.

Crop TopsCrop Tops

The biggest trend of the season hands down, and you can find two-piece sets in all of our following trends. Crops are edgy and fun, but not for everyone. You can keep this look simple and classic, or fun and unique.


Big and bold floral patterns are everywhere, long and short dresses with classic silhouettes. They are a little old Hollywood meets new age glam. Pair this look with a bold lip and a sleek updo.


Top to bottom sequins, paired with a nude color and illusion necklines is like a second skin. This look is sure to turn heads. If you choose this trend, keep the hair and makeup simple to balance out the WOW factor of this style.


Wine, oxblood, Bordeaux... pretty much anything in the dark red family has been huge all year. This color with all its variations can suit about any skin tone. If you choose this style you have a blank canvas to keep it as simple or as glam as you want.

Cut outsCutouts

This is one of the most flattering trends, cutouts at the waist accentuate an hourglass figure. Deep back cutouts are classy and show off just the right amount of skin. Again keeping hair and makeup simple pairs well with this trend.


This silhouette is making a huge comeback, tight through the hips down to the knees ending in a trumpet skirt. Pair this style with any of the top trends to keep it looking modern.
