Prom 2012: A Vintage Extravaganza

 Prom 2012 has many trends associated with it, including one-shoulder dresses, high-low hemlines, lots of satin, lace, sequins, bold colors, daringly mini lengths, oversized bows, deep-v necklines, sleeves in all different lengths, and ruffles. If you really want to have a unique look for the night you’ll never forget, try utilizing vintage resources! I mean, do you really want to look like a belly dancer on prom night (see below)? Many schools are cracking down on risqué prom looks this year as retaliation against the prom dresses that appear to be bikinis with a skirt. Be sure to check your school’s regulations before purchasing a gown. Some schools do not even allow backless dresses. Be a classy lady on prom night – vintage dresses are so right now for the true fashionista.
