If you want to channel your favorite old Hollywood film starlets on your big prom night, donning a mermaid-style prom dress is the perfect way to do it. This black and red mermaid gown from Unique Prom features a slim fit throughout the bodice and hips and a dramatic flair from the knees down, creating a romantic, retro look that is much more special than more modern dress shapes. The sweetheart neckline adds a bit of a boost to the bust area, while the intricate black beading throughout the bodice and upper legs catches the light and adds even more elegant drama. A slight dip in the back shows just the right amount of skin, and the volume that comes from the layers of chiffon in the lower skirt is ideal for dancing all night long. With a pair of simple black heels and a sleek, sophisticated up-do, this mermaid prom dress is perfect for the girl with unique tastes.
