Celebrities aren't the only ones opting for hip-hugging styles. Dresses that accentuate a girl's curves are hot for nights like prom. If comfort isn't important, don't be afraid to try a tight mermaid prom dress.
While long, flowing dresses are still the preferred style for prom, short dresses are becoming more and more popular. If you'd rather stay cool with a shorter dress, don't be afraid to try it. It's a unique alternative for a rather stuffy night.
Beads and sequins seem to be all the rage for prom 2013. Whether they're used abundantly or in small doses, they add flare to any dress. Both floral and graphic prints are being used on prom gowns in a fresh new fashion. They can add style to a rather boring or plain dress and can easily make you stand out in a crowd. Animal prints are also being carried over from last year.
