Prom Dress Trends for 2013

What are the Hottest Prom Dresses of 2013?

2013 Prom Dress FashionEvery spring brings with it a promise beyond better weather: that the year’s style trends will be better than the year before. This year proves no different, especially when it comes to prom styles. We have more than a few to choose from here at Nitsa’s, and our knowledgeable staff is up-to-date on the latest trends. Stop by and let us help you find the perfect dress to complement your unique style. But first, take a look at what’s trending for 2013:

Ombré: It’s not just a hairstyle. This season, pump up the wow factor without all-over sequins or off-the-wall prints, and opt for a dress with not-so-subtle shade variations. It’s a great way to update the traditional longer-style prom dress. Ombré is also a great option for elongating shorter torsos as the gradient draws the eyes down.

Short and Sweet: Short styles are in the hot seat this year, but short doesn’t mean any less sexy. Add drama by choosing a dress with all-over sequins and long sleeves, or go girly-girl with a soft pink solid dress with sweet cap sleeves. Peplum is a great add-on for girls looking to add curves.

Cut It Out: More often than not, showing just a little skin is sexier than showing a lot. Capitalize on this maxim with the season’s trendy cutout style. Pair with a high mesh or lace neckline to continue the less-is-more illusion, and you’ll have one of the most subtle sexy looks around.

The Long and the Short of it: Can’t decide between the traditional long gown, and the season’s lean toward shorter styles? Now you don’t have to: The high-low (short in front, long in back) or illusion (short dresses with a long sheer overlay) options give you the best of both worlds while keeping you perfectly on-trend.
