BLACK PROM DRESSES – THE CLASSIC LOOK OF ELEGANCE

Black prom dresses are ranking high atop the list of most requested colors for the 2016 prom season! There is no doubt, black prom dresses exude the classic elegance and confidence we admire most about those we have seen in all of the iconic images of Hollywood starlets looking radiant on the Red Carpet and royalty making their mark in front of the camera alike. How can you go wrong in the most versatile color in the rainbow for accessorizing? You can dress black up or down and every way in between with simple accessories that remain understated or you can take black over the top with contrasting pops of color with your clutch, jewelry or shoes. Black is the color of versatility and allows every personality to make a statement in black. Plus, black is another one of the power colors that makes you feel empowered and we well know that there is no better color to flatter your shape than black. Black prom dresses are the new BLACK for Prom 2016!

BLACK PROM DRESSES COME IN EVERY STYLE OPTION

Now that you have decided that you are going for a black prom dress, the next choice is what style will you pick to wear? Black prom dresses come in all of the various prom dress styles including mermaid, slim line, a-line, ball gowns, high-low and short. Truly there is no one most popular style for black prom dresses because this color tends to look good across all the styles and silhouettes. Although sometimes thought of as a heavy color for a younger audience, we have actually found the exact opposite. All age ranges are attracted to dresses in black because black dresses are the most neutral of all of the colors and tend to make every body shape look flattering no matter the size. We carry black prom dresses in sizes 00-24 regular to 14w-30w in plus sizes for every body shape to look their best.

BLACK PROM DRESSES ARE THE EPITOME OF BALANCE FOR EVERY COMPLEXION

Truly there is no more neutral color than black. Black tends to look beautiful on nearly every complexion from fair skin to dark and everyone in between. Although black prom dresses come from simple styles that have no beading to fully beaded bling bling eye popping styles featuring countless crystal gem stones, black is black – and for that reason, it looks amazing in both simple styles as well as fully crystal encrusted styles on almost every skin tone. The true fun of styling plans for black prom dresses is coming up with the make-up look to truly complement your dress. Black gives you total and complete freedom to go on the more minimal side with eyes and pair your dress with the color pop of red sultry lips or go over the top with shimmer shadows and do the exact opposite with a neutral nude lip. Your make-up options run from high drama to classic and everything in between. It is all about getting the look you’re after. One piece of style advice we can offer is to make sure that you try your make-up look in advance of prom. This will help you make sure that your make-up is on point for your big night!

BLACK PROM DRESSES COME IN COUNTLESS FABRIC OPTIONS

From comfort long wearing stretch jersey fabrics to flowing chiffon styles, black prom dresses come in every fabric option imaginable for Prom 2016. The choice is all about the style silhouette of the dress you are seeking. If you have been dreaming about a gown that is structured and conveys extreme classic elegance, go for fabrics like taffeta, heavy satins and the new fabric on the scene for 2016 neoprene, as those fabrics tend to hold their shape and create structured volume to the dress. If you prefer a fitted sexy look instead, think about jersey knit, stretch mesh or stretch lace fabrics that hug your body and showcase your feminine curves. Stretch fabrics are a great choice if your prom is an all day and into the night event. Jersey and stretch mesh tend to show minimal wear and are super comfortable due to their stretch nature. This can also make a difference if you plan to dance the prom night away under the stars as jersey and stretch mesh tend not to show perspiration marks, especially in a dark color like black. Black prom dresses in flowing fabrics like chiffon and demi-satins can captivate with a simple classic elegance that is only found in those lighter weight fabric choices. It is hard to go wrong with black in any fabric choice, so focus on the style as your first point of selection and go from there.

No matter which style or fabric you choose, if you have questions about any of the black prom dresses in our collection this year, just call or chat us. We are here to help you select the dress of your dreams for prom night and can help with style, fit and fabric questions if you have them!
