Each season, designers put together a collection of designs that are truly one of a kind, but you'll usually notice a handful of similarities from collection to collection. This year, there's a particular body style that has flooded the runway and we couldn't be any more excited about it! From Sherri Hill to Alyce Paris, Rachel Allan, LaFemme and Jovani expect to see dozens of gorgeous mermaid and trumpet silhouettes at Prom 2k17!
Mermaid and trumpet skirts will be a hot commodity this year at prom and we have new variations of this glamorous trend arriving on the daily. It's the perfect body-skimming, form fitting look that outlines and highlights all of your curves without looking too tight or clingy. This makes it the perfect style for girls who want to show off their natural silhouette or give the illusion of an hourglass frame.
The flared or ruffled bottoms on mermaid and trumpet prom dresses give them a little something extra and make them look flawless on the dance floor and in group pics. They also offer plenty of movement and aren't restrictive making them super easy and comfortable to dance the night away in.
One thing we love to see on mermaid gowns is the use of contrasting fabrics to really make the flared skirt stand out. Sherri Hill style #50822 has the perfect combination of a sleek, stream-lined bodice along with a fluffy, tulle bottom that gives it a ton of volume. This is the perfect alternative to a gown that is form-fitting from head to toe!
Layered colors with intricate detailing as seen on Alyce Paris style #446752, are another great option for the body silhouette. Whether it's decked out in lace, AB crystals or beading a mermaid or trumpet style gown can definitely pull off heavy embellishments.
Like to keep it simple? There are tons of elegant options like Rachel Allan style #8208 or Sherri Hill style #50915 that are classic and understated. This leaves plenty of room for accessorizing and lets you really play with your hair and makeup looks.
Whether you're looking for something subtle and sweet or ultra blinged out, we have the perfect style in stock ready for you to try on!
