Prom Dresses: The Long and Short of It

In this blog, we ask and answer the question: should you wear a short or long dress to prom? Most of the time, it all boils down to your preference. Yet, some factors come with each one you consider. Check out some of them below.

Short, light, and fun

When you prefer the short dress as your prom outfit, go for whatever makes you feel playful! With short dresses, you can quickly move around and show off your dance moves. With this type of dress, you are also not afraid to show some skin. And, if paired with the right high heels, you are well on your way to having a fun night out with your friends and school peers!

We can recommend some short dress styles:

  • Baby doll dress
  • A-line dance dress
  • Off-shoulder party dress
  • Halter-top short semi-formal dress

We also suggest letting your hair down (literally!). Don’t forget to accessorise!

Long, formal, and classy

When you choose a long dress to wear for your upcoming prom, you are probably going for an elegant and traditional look. But just because you want something traditional does not mean it is boring. With the many styles of gowns and long dresses you can select from a dress shop these days, you will indeed find something that gives off a unique and dramatic statement.

We recommend the following: 

  • Two-piece ball gown
  • Mermaid dress
  • A-line gown
  • Open-back or strapless gown
  • Sheath long dress

We also suggest tight hair buns, sparkly jewellery, and comfortable high heels (since you don’t need to show them off that much, anyway!).
