Just about every girl dreams about Prom Night. However, every girl is different and wants to wear something that not only complements her figure, but reflects her individual personality. A designer prom dress will make a girl feel even more special, unique and confident on the biggest night of her life. But, she needs to choose wisely. Here are some pointers.
Buying a designer prom dress is the right decision. Each fashion house employs leading designers whose sole purpose is to design unique, gorgeous and classic prom gowns. It's their full-time job and they believe a woman who wears one of their creations is not only going to look fantastic, but will feel unique, as though the dress was especially made for her.
However, each fashion house offers styles that differ from other fashion houses, so a woman needs to be aware of their particular designs and, more importantly, what style of gown she will be her best in.
If romantic, classic lines are preferred then a Tiffany prom dress might just be the answer. Tiffany creates exquisite traditional gowns that have been adored by women for decades. Many feel that a traditional formal gown is what shows off a girl to her best. Strapless or halter neck bodices with fine detailing to accentuate a woman's shoulders and bust-line; and generous tulle or pick up skirt will enhance any girl's figure, be it petite or voluptuous. As you would expect, Tiffany prom dresses use beautiful fabrics in pastel shades or traditional vibrant colors; patterning is kept to a minimum so that the fabrics shine through.
Mori Lee prom dresses are also favored by women who want that 'princess' look. However, this fashion house also makes more contemporary gowns as well. The collection is called Paparazzi, and like the more traditional styles on offer from Mori Lee, the skirts are still full length but they are more figure-hugging with some designs featuring a split. The colors used are also more vibrant - no off whites here.
At the other end of the spectrum is the Xcite prom dress collection. These designs are for women who want that modern, sexy and forthright look. The gowns are far more risque than their traditional counterparts; they're figure hugging and styled to expose more with daring plunge lines and high skirt slits. Some might argue that Xcite dresses are more appropriate for a Hollywood party than Prom Night, but these frocks have been designed for today's confident young women who are used to wearing clothing that exposes mid-riff and open work blouses strung together with sequins and lace.
For those who want something that is the ultimate in style and sophistication the Jovani prom dress should be the first port of call. These gowns really do have class. The Jovani Prom and Jovani Beyond Prom collections offer some of the most beautiful, sexy, stylish, well-made frocks there are, but each piece exudes pure class. There are more traditional styles as well as more contemporary ones featuring short skirts, low neck lines, lace bodices and tassels.
The Jessica McClintock prom dress has been a favorite for decades and deservedly so. The collection is wide ranging and a woman can choose from traditional to very modern. But no matter what style it is, there is one predominant theme: romance.
Choosing the best designer prom dress is made much easier if you have some idea of what style you want. But if you can't make up your mind then you should start by looking at a fashion house that offers many different styles like Jovani or Jessica McClintock. Better still, go to a boutique that stocks their gowns and try them on and get advice from the fashion advisor working there. Your Prom Night is important so take your time and choose one that makes you feel glamorous and confident from the moment you put it on.
