What’s the “it” color for prom dresses this year? Here’s a hint: The Wizard of Oz’s jealousy turned his entire city this vibrant hue.
Yup, Emerald green is cropping up in all of this season’s prom gown collections. The rich, lively shade straight from nature beat out the rest of the rainbow as Pantone’s topcolor of 2013 (Pantone, also known as The Color Institute, is the company that defines and influences color trends worldwide). According to Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of Pantone’s research department, emerald is a balanced color, and something to pick up and listen to: ”It’s a color of growth, renewal, healing, unity and regeneration…words we’re all so in need of at this point in history.”

Prom is just around the corner and with so many decisions to make about what to wear, it’s time to get to work, girl! But don’t worry if you’re completely clueless about what color or style dress will look best on you. This Dress Guide is tailored to point you in the perfect direction. Let’s get started!
Match Your Dress Color with Your Complexion
There is a rainbow of dress options available, but it’s important to know which shades best flatter your complexion. And it’s really not that hard to figure out either. Basically, you have a “cool”, “warm”, or “neutral” skin tone. So, what category do you fall under? If you have a cool tone then your skin will have pink or blue undertones and any visible veins will look blue. That being said, colder colors like purples, blues, greens and pinks look great with your skin.
We get it- Prom can be very costly. But it doesn’t have to be! Our Sale Prom section is chock full of fabulous Prom dresses at ridiculously low prices. A good buy never goes out of style, ladies.
