Short Prom Dresses – A Legs Dream Come TrueJanuary 25, 2013 by Unique Vintage | Prom
Prom can of course be defined by a lot of options: hair up or down? How dramatic of a cat-eye is too much? Is it ever too early for “Spanx?” Before you start your coin-flipping, perhaps we should start with the dress. A Short Prom Dress not only lets the party know you have arrived, but so have your fabulous legs. With the right accessories, a touch of makeup and a curling iron, you’ll soon be ready to stun in a short prom dress this season.
We’ll keep this sweet and short. Literally. A stunning all nude short prom dress with a black contrast is always a winner in our book. A strapless neckline is delicate enough for any type of jewelry statement, but still flattering on so many levels. While the dress may be short, the details within the dress keep is visually stunning. A cascading black lace is lush on top and becomes more quiet as it travels toward the hemline. Pair it with a set of chic black heels, or even a pop of color for a little something extra.
While a tight dress is stunning, there is something timeless about a full-skirt A-Line short Prom dress. Any evening that requires a fair amount of dancing begs for a dress that can move! In a cheeky teal, a strapless look is complimented by intricate bodice pleating. A pleated waist portion of the dress cinches the waist, and nips you in at just the right place. The full skirt with the cut-out ribbon detailing at the hem is the perfect finale for this number. Built to twirl, a skirt with movement is the best for those of you with dancing feet inside your fabulous heels.
And lastly, if Gold is the color of winners then consider this your Academy Award. An all gold short prom dress is perfect for any girl who feels like a million bucks and wants to show it! Intricate beading, a strapless neckline and interesting seaming all adds to this stunner. As an homage to the Roaring 1920’s, beaded fringe hangs from the waistline to the hem of the skirt- for additional movement and detail. The dress relies on beads and sequins, so minimal jewelry is needed for the dress. But shoes! A soft colored shoe is perfect for this gilded beauty, as is a delicate makeup palette. Swing the night away as the shining star of your Prom.
