The perfect evening gown for that grand entrance we dream of is a romantic ball gown. It’s the dream of walking into a room and feeling like a princess. Or an effortless twirl across the dance floor that makes you feel like teen royalty.
Wearing a dress with a ball gown silhouette to prom has become extremely fashionable. The increasing popularity of ball gown prom dresses is a major change in prom attire trends.
The classic look of a ball gown comes in many forms, fabrics, and textures. With off-the-shoulder designs and gowns with expansive sweep trains, your princess dreams will come to life wearing a ball gown.
The most iconic cut for a ball gown is the strapless version. A strapless ball gown creates a beautiful décolletage.
V-necks and one shoulders can help make a broad shoulder line or full bust appear smaller.
Recently, raised necklines with collars or bejeweled accents as well as sheer coverage with appliqués and/or beading have been rapidly growing in popularity.
Brocade fabrics shot with metallics lend themselves to a vintage look. Lace is being added for accent and all over looks to create a feeling of romance. Velvets add sumptuous elegance.
For pear shaped girls, ball gowns are the best silhouette for flattering your your figure, as they will accent your small waist and swath the fuller part of your body in sumptuous yards of fabric.
If you have an hourglass shape or are a little thick in the middle a ball gown can help define the waist. Your torso will look slimmer in contrast to the fuller skirt. For a particularly flattering look, consider a style with a beaded belt or waist cinching details.
The ball gown silhouette is also flattering for girls with narrow hips, as it can provide a curvy look.
Reusing Your Ball Gown
Since ball gown dresses are the most formal silhouette, this makes them perfectly suited not only for your prom but also for the other dressy special occasions you will be attending in the future.
