For the effortless bohemian goddess who adores simplistic glamour, a boho-chic prom dress is the perfect choice. From colorful embroidery and intricate beading to lace embellishments, the boho-chic trend is extremely popular this year and can be found from many of the top prom designers. If you weren’t able to make it to Coachella this year, now is the time to unleash the free spirit that you truly are and embrace your inner flower child.

The High-Low
This look tends to resurface onto the prom scene every few years and it is back and better than ever for 2017. A high-low prom dress is perfect for showing off a pair of spectacular heels that would otherwise be hidden with a full-length gown. Whether your personal style longs for a 1950s inspired subtle high-low hem, an overskirt with a peek-a-boo pair of shorts or mini-skirt underneath, or a thigh-high style with cascading ruffles, you will surely find the perfect style with all that this season has to offer.

This trend is everywhere from the runway to ready-to-wear, so it only makes sense for it to dominate the prom scene for 2017. This look is subtly romantic and is available in a variety of styles and silhouettes such as two-piece, mermaid, and long sleeve. You can also ease into the trend by showing just a peek of your shoulders and opt for the cold-shoulder look. No matter your preference, you will surely find plenty of options this prom season.

Pay homage to the classic 1920s era and wear a vintage inspired dress with fringe detail for prom 2017. With every move you make on the dance floor, your fringe prom dress will shake right along to the beat of the music ensuring that you will be the center of attention.
