It’s one of the biggest student nights of the year, so it’s essential you find the perfect prom dress for your “all eyes on you” grand entrance.
And to help you out this year we’re going to let you in on a little secret...we’ve quizzed our fashion - forward friends at GlamCorner to discover the hottest formal dress trends that YOU need to know this year, and how to rock them at the best prices!
HOT TREND #1: CUT-OUT, BACKLESS AND SPLIT DRESSES
Our Fave Pick: Skiva, Open Back Embellished Trim - Black
Open Back, Daring Front Split and Diamante Embellishment.
If your vibe is classy and elegant with a touch of edge this is the perfect formal dress style for you.
Choose from a range of design prints and colours, such as soft free-flowing dresses for a more sexy romantic look, or structured, asymmetrical dresses with cut-outs and splits for a stronger, more daring formal look.
Let the designer dress do the talking, team up with simple accessories and strappy heels.

HOT TREND #2: COLD-SHOULDER DRESSES
Our Fave Pick: The Jetset Diaries, Sublime Illusion Maxi Dress
Off-shoulder Ruffles and Sky- High Splits!
Don’t give the latest formal dress trend the cold shoulder...the off- shoulder dress is hot on trend for this year.
Available in various lengths from midi to floor-length gowns and a host of colours and styles, this look is subtlety revealing, yet pretty and elegant.
Accessorise with a simple necklace or delicate choker and trendy earrings if you want a more statement formal look.

HOT TREND #3: ALL THINGS METALLIC
Our Fave Pick: Talulah, Golden Maxi Dress
Plunge V-Neck, Low Back and Thigh High Split.
We love shimmering metallic dresses for a statement school formal arrival!
Glide into your formal venue like a celebrity, whilst your fellow students watch in awe as your dress glistens under the spotlight.
For a more fun and flirty look, choose a sequinned mini or slip style dress. Or for full impact, rent a metallic floor length gown in a choice of colours (peach and rose gold is our fave!).
Top tip - keep the shoes and accessories simple, let the dress shine.

HOT TREND #4: SHEER LACE DRESSES
Our Fave Pick: Elle Zeitoune, Marchesa Wine
Intricate Floral Lace Pattern, Fitted Bodycon, and a Shape that Accentuates the Curves.
If you’re channelling the modern romance vibe with a touch of sheer this is the perfect formal look for you.
Lace dresses will highlight your natural beauty and feminine charms, whilst maintaining an aura of sophistication.
We rate the soft pastel lace dress colours, although a deep burgundy or classic black lace dress with gold accessories is also a timeless look.

HOT TREND #5: NUDE DRESSES
Our Fave Pick: Grace & Hart, Frilling Around
Sweetheart neckline, shoestring straps and floral trim lace.
We may have saved the best till last...
Nude is without doubt one of the hottest 2017 prom dress trends!
With a range of nude dress tones to choose from across tans, neutrals, cool pinks and champagnes, there’s a dress to flatter every skin tone.
Complement the look with gold jewellery and a natural clutch.
Add a subtle touch of colour with a light bronzer and rose pink lippie with a pink blush for a fresh and pretty formal look.
