Be the Belle of the Ball

Be the belle of the ball at your prom!  When you think of a standard prom dress, usually the first thing that comes to mind is a full ball gown that you always see in the movies.  This is a classic prom style that has been around for a long time and isn’t going anywhere soon.  Ball gowns come in many different colors and styles to choose from.

The most common type of ball gown is the classic princess dress.  Channel your inner royal in a gown with a full tulle skirt with sequin and bead embellishments.  This is the ultimate girly prom style.  A modern twist on the princess gown is a printed ball gown.  Prints have become increasingly popular for prom and are now being incorporated onto ball gowns.  If you want to show off some leg, try a short dress with a tulle skirt.  This has the same elegance as a ball gown but in a shorter style for a fresh, new look.

Can’t decide if you want to go long or short? The Faviana collection offers convertible ball gowns.  This way, you can start off your prom night in a long full gown for pictures and your grand entrance, then remove the skirt and have a short, fun party dress to dance the night away in!  You can also wear the long style for prom night, and if you have another event coming up, don’t buy another dress, wear the short version.  It is two dresses in one, offering two unique looks that you can wear depending on which is more appropriate for the occasion.

If tulle isn’t your thing, you can wear a full skirt in a taffeta dress.  Taffeta is a great fabric for prom dresses because of its beautiful iridescence.  On the Emmy’s red carpet, Glee star Naya Rivera wore a shimmering gown with a full skirt and high slit making her look like a total glamour girl.  Tulle is no longer the only choice if you are looking for fullness in your gown so look into alternate fabric options.

There is a gown out there for every girl no matter what prom look you are going for.  Faviana offers a wide selection of ball gowns in all different shapes and colors.  Dress like a true prom queen in a ball gown and you’ll be turning heads all night!
