prom dresses

Confession time: I have a not-so-secret obsession with Prom Dresses. I love the high drama they convey in either long, full, floor-sweeping skirt version or super-short, barely-there, micro-mini style. I love the over the top embellishments which range from the kitschy {feathers, organza, insane ruffles} to the downright glamorous {give me rhinestones, sequins, and tulle ballerina skirts any day!}, to the undeniably sexy {hello low-cut backs, thigh-high slits, and tongue-in-chic sheer panels}.

I love the way that the jaws of handsome, suited-up boys carrying corsages and high-hopes {mixed with sweaty palms} for the evening drop at just one look at you in your chosen dress. But most of all, I love the uncanny ability that a simple prom dress has to make any girl feel unquestionably beautiful – be it the super shy girl in homeroom who typically retains wallflower status, or your slightly nerdy 20-something English teacher who is dressing up for the first time {to chaperone, mind you}. Simply magical, don’t you agree?

With prom dress shopping season in full-swing {pick up any teen monthly for pretty proof}, I’ve found myself returning to PickeDresses time and time again – not because I’m shopping for a prom dress myself {I wish!}; rather, because prom dresses serve as perfect formal attire inspiration for high school teens or adults who are browsing for ultra-femme ensembles for black tie affairs {now, if only we could browse for dates as easily}. I’ve combed through page after page {after page after page after page} of prom dresses to uncover my Top 3 – I hope you adore them as much as I do!

Sheath/Column Straps Court Train Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses {$174.48}
Jaw-droppingly gorgeous, yes? If Carrie Bradshaw’s Naked Dress and Britney Spearsnude bodysuit with well-placed rhinestones {2004 music video for Toxic} had a love child, this dress would be it. But seriously…the rhinestone embellishment coupled with the champagne-toned chiffon is just stunning!

Sheath/Column Jewel Ankle-length Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses {$150.30}
That thigh-slit though…sheer-paneling, thigh-slit, rhinestone embellishment, exposed back – this dress basically features some of the sexiest details imaginable wrapped up in one. gorgeous. frock. What’s so incredibly brilliant about this piece is that, while being obviously sexy, it’s executed in a tasteful {yet still daring!} way that feels completely sophisticated as opposed to being over the top.

A-line Sweetheart Floor-length Tulle Appliques Prom Dresses {$152.50}
Appliques aren’t typically my thing, but on this dress? Love to the tenth power! They add such dimension to the sheer overlay; while pairing beautifully with the embellished sweetheart bodice.

Which style would you choose for your big night?
