Prom is a special night that highlights your high school experience with friends, dancing, and memories that will last a lifetime. From make-up to shoes down to the pedicure, your prom look should make you feel beautiful. There are so many different types of dresses to choose from and it can be overwhelming, so we broke down the most popular styles below.
Our biggest tip to girls!!! Before you order dress, TRY IT ON! At Oz Boutique, you are allowed to try on as many dresses as you please in order to find the perfect match. Sometimes, what we see online is not how the dress looks on our own bodies. It is important to try on multiple styles to find the one that suits you best!
Mermaid dresses hug your body from neckline down to the torso and then flare out at the bottom, similarly to a mermaid's tail. Mermaid dresses are known to create a beautiful hourglass shape, emphasizing the shape of the hips. Though mermaid dresses may seem body conscious, they are popular among women who want to tighten their figure and the flaring skirt at the bottom makes the upper body look smaller in comparison. Mermaid dresses are elegant styles suitable for all shapes, sizes, and heights.
Two Piece Dress
Two-piece dresses have been gaining lots of popularity the past few years, breaking away from traditional styled prom dresses. Two piece dresses consist of a beautiful top that usually stops mid-torso and a matching skirt that sits above the belly button, around the waist. The top ranges from all kinds of styles like bandeau, high neck, strapless, corset or short sleeves. Two-piece dresses are a great way to add edge to the elegance.
Empire Waist Dress
An empire waist is when the tightest area of a dress’ bodice is right beneath the bust at the bra line, as opposed to the waist. Dresses with empire waists are not mutually exclusive to the other dresses. You most certainly can find a dress that is A-lined with an empire waist, but its unique detail is worth noting.
High-low dresses have skirts hemmed with a long back and shorter front. This fun style takes a spin on traditional, full-length gowns by combining the best of both worlds! Skirts can either stop high above or below the knee, depending on what look you are trying to go for. Unlike most dresses that stop to the floor, high-low dresses are great for showing off your heels and painted toes! It is also popular among girls who want to show a little bit of leg without straying away from the standard long prom dress.
A-line dresses are one of the most popular styles chosen by girls for prom. The dress starts off fitted around the hips and gradually flares down and outward, like the shape of the letter "A." A-line dresses are classic, timeless and come in a multitude of styles. A-line dresses are suitable for all body types as it accentuates the bust, allows for tummy control, and flows elegantly around the legs. This style is sure to make you feel like a princess.
A-symmetrical dresses have a detail on one side of the dress that is different from the other. These details can range from the shape of the neckline to the waistline or even the hemline. The most common feature in an a-symmetrical dress is the one-shoulder design that combines sleeveless with sleeves. A-symmetric dresses add a bit of spunk to a traditional gown and are great for girls who can’t decide between two different styles!
