Browse our collection of high-end gowns and find the perfect one for you to stand out from the crowd. As you browse, keep in mind the following 10 trends for 2019 prom looks:
1. Floral Details
One of the subtler trends for prom 2019 is small floral detailing. Of course, dresses splashes with blossoms are still beautiful too, but this trend is all about accentuating the bust and waist with ornate petals to give that soft, feminine, romantic look.

3. Rose Gold
There’s no denying that rose gold has been a major trend for quite a while now. From jewelry to handbag hardware to marble stationary sets, rose gold is everywhere. There’s a good reason for it too — rose gold is flattering on nearly every skin tone, giving that flushed, sweet look.

A long-time classic gown material, velvet is lux, elegant and warm. For anyone looking to dazzle and feel comfortable while they do it, this is for you. Also, it can be quite warm so it’s great for anyone going to prom in cooler climes.
Whether picturing a Hollywood star sheathed in silver or an Amazonian warrior in bronze hardware, there’s something so fierce about metallic gowns. Going for gold, silver, chrome or bronze is always a great choice which will shimmer in all light levels.

Overskirts add a flair of drama to any look. Widening out at the waist to trail behind you like grande dames of old, overskirts let people know you’ve arrived. The full skirts are also excellent for balancing wider shoulder or fuller chests.

7. Stylish Slits
Who doesn’t love to show a little leg now and then? A tasteful slit running up the side of a dress can be the perfect, elegant way to show off a bit of skin. It’s also great for allowing movement, meaning you can dance the night away in comfort.

8. Two-Piece: Top & Skirt
A trend that has emerged over the past few years and is still going strong is the two-piece gown. Featuring a form-fit top and then a skirt, this design shows that peep of upper midriff skin that makes it a little sexy while still retaining a certain modesty.

9. Illusion Panels
Sometimes it’s about pretending to show skin, when you’re really not. Illusion panels are great for upping the smolder factor without actually showing off more skin. Whether they’re in a plunging V-neckline or down the sides of a dress, illusion panels are sheer brilliance.

10. Ombre Sequin
This trend is actually a combination of two: shimmering sequins and two-tone ombre. Visually stunning and unique, your outfit is sure to stand out from others in the best way possible. Why choose one color of sequins when you could have two?
