The PB Guide to Prom Dresses

Evangeline Pink Beaded Lace Maxi Dress

Prom season is may seem like a lifetime away but when it comes to the biggest event of the year, preparation is key! Choosing the perfect outfit can seem daunting – there are so many different types of prom dresses – so we’ve put together the ultimate guide to help you pick your dream dress!

What type of prom dress should I wear?

We know every girl is different – there’s no right or wrong when it comes to prom! Wear whatever makes you feel confident and comfy, whether that be a vintage style skater dress, a princess ball gown or a sleek Oscars-worthy look.

Still weighing up your options? Let’s run through some of our most popular prom styles:

Prom dresses with straps

If you don’t feel comfortable in a strapless prom dress, then there are plenty of prom dresses with straps to choose from. We love this black and gold prom dress – the sheer bodice and sequin detail is super pretty.

Prom dresses with lace

There’s nothing more classic than a lace evening dress. From full lace skirts to more subtle details, lace prom dresses never go out of style.  We love this black lace fishtail prom dress – it’s got all of the wow factor whilst still being totally wearable.

Black Lace Back Maxi Dress

Prom dresses with sleeves

Most proms take place in summer, but you just never know with the British weather! Sleeves can still be super glamorous – more room for sparkles, after all. Our fave is this champagne sequin long sleeve prom dress – give us all of the glitter!

Which colour should I choose?

As you’ve probably guessed, we love pink here at PBHQ, and this hot pink sequin prom dress is a firm fave with our babes.

Can prom dresses be short?

Of course they can! If you’re worried about tripping on the dance floor, then you can rock a short prom dress instead. This rose gold sequin skater dress is on of our bestselling styles and perfect for prom, thanks to the layered satin skirt and sequin bodice.
