Out with the mother-approved, extremely boring prom dresses and in with the mermaid style, custom-made, see-through gowns that are making adults silently wish for a prom do-over. Just in case you haven’t been paying attention, prom style has evolved. Prom is now a fashion extravaganza that allows young women and men to tap into their inner style beast and show their unique, red carpet-worthy looks off to the world.
The Fashion Bomb Daily team was eager to see how this year’s prom goers were slaying their fabulous frocks. We did a call, and you guys answered. Check out some bomb 2017 prom styles below.
Chelsey Robinson @chelsy_chanelxoxo and her date @gro2th from Lee High School in Huntsville, AL personified “prom goals” as they posed fiercely in pink. Chelsey’s date looked cool in a navy blue suit and a pink bow tie while Chelsey filled her pink mermaid style dress out perfectly. The top of the dress is see-through with an embroidered design covering the front of the dress. Popping!
Alexis and her date have to be the cool kids in school because it definitely shows through their prom pics! This gold and silver A-line dress matches Alexis’ skin tone perfectly. We also love how her date wore a traditional tux and metallic sneakers. So unconventional and fly!
Can we get two snaps and a circle for Miss Bailee @bailee_mm from Ensworth High School in Nashville, TN who worked this flower print mermaid style gown?! Most ladies go for the traditional solid prom prints, but Bailee took another route. I love this print for prom Bailee!
This cutie @_.k.money._. wowed us in this two piece royal prom ensemble. The gold detailing popping off of this blue is eye-catching. This is such a classy choice for prom!
Okay can I get a prom do-over?? If the answer is yes, I am wearing this exact dress! Tally @_tally from Lee Magnet High School in Baton Rouge, LA gets a standing ovation for for this mermaid gown with beaded detailing. It’s not too much, but definitely not too little. It’s the right amount of fabulous! Tally and her date OJ were on point!
Kiara @kiashelia and her date @realjasondailey were super fly in silver! Kiara stunned in this mermaid style, beaded mesh gown designed by Anita Rivers @classicroyalty. I love the slightly puffed sleeves on this dress which adds some vintage glam to the look. Get it girl!
Desire’ @dezhopkins from Lake Weir High school in Florida turned heads, I’m certain, in this lovely sequenced, long sleeve gown. The over-the-top pony tail tops the entire look off. I’m in love with this fierceness!
Thanks to these fly prom styles I am currently side-eyeing my old prom pictures (yuck!). It’s hard for me to choose my favorite look so I’m going to put that pressure on you guys. Which one was your favorite prom look and why? Sound off below!
