Black prom gowns elongate the body, making you look sleek and sultry in a form-fitting style or a dreamy wisp of smoke in layers of chiffon. Black lace, intricate beading and embroidery and shimmering sequin patterns add feminine, ladylike elements. For a simpler look, clean and smooth satin is classic in black and illusion panels give the suggestion of skin while keeping an air of mystery.
Find a retro and vintage-inspired black prom dress from some of the century’s most fashionable decades. Beads, fringe and art deco design dominated the flapper dresses of the 1920s-30s. These styles are perfect for Gatsby proms
, as well as A Night in Paris
. Polka dots circa 1950 are fun without looking like you’re ready for your first day of elementary school. You can also still shop by color and print! Bright colors and patterns in either the bodice or the skirt really shake things up if you can’t decide between black and that hot pink number.
The beauty of a black gown is that it matches everything. Pairing accessories like shoes and clutches is a snap — simply pick your favorite accent color and run with it. Jewelry, too, can go as simple or as intricate as the rest of the dress allows. It doesn’t matter if your dress has a lot of details or very few, something small and minimalist really turns the attention to your gorgeous black dress. Or take it the other way and add a statement necklace or brilliant diamond cuff to highlight against your minimalist dress. Just avoid pairing a big, bold necklace with an already big, bold detailed bodice. Black and gold is a classic combination, but black and silver will have you sparking like the night sky.
