Prom season is right around the corner, and here at Birchbox we’ve been reminiscing about our own prom experiences. The consensus? We’ll always laugh about the semi-regrettable styling decisions we made as teens: the streaky self-tans, the crunchy curls, and (most memorably) the pouffy princess dresses that wouldn’t look out of place on Toddlers & Tiaras.
Not sure what kind of dress you’re looking for? Click through for our top picks!
If your style is sweet and girly…
Go for a classic floor sweeper in a subtle muted shade. We love ModCloth’s Evening of Effervescence dress ($94.99; pictured at left), which is made with free-floating layers of champagne chiffon. The diagonal, one-shoulder neckline begs to be complemented by a statement necklace.
If your style is elegant and ladylike…
Choose a tea-length gown like the Winter Waltz Dress in Ivory ($199.99; pictured at center). The black bow adds a whimsical touch, and the full skirt will inspire you to twirl around the dance floor. Add discrete pearl earrings, and you’ll be all set.
If your style is trendy and bold…
Aim to stand apart from the crowd with a daring strapless number like our personal favorite, the Good Vibrancy dress ($82.99; pictured at right). The ruched fabric will emphasize all the right curves. Wear it with a silver metallic clutch and sky-high heels.
