Finding the most beautiful Prom Dresses can be hard work, especially when you don’t really know where to start. You know what the other girls are wearing, but you want to stand out from the crowd. You want to wear something that definitely suits you, stands out, but is still beautiful and appropriate. It’s hard to know how to get it all just right … right?

If you want only the most beautiful Prom Dresses for your big night, you’ve come to the right place. We have 31 designs that we think you’re going to love. There is something here for everyone, regardless of what size, shape, or style you’re looking for.

1. LONG DEEP RED DRESS

One of the most important pieces of advice you’ll hear whilst on the hunt for the most beautiful Prom Dresses is to get yourself booked in with the store you’re going to be buying it from as early as possible. They’ll need to get your measurements, and you can try on a few dresses that are already there to get a good idea for the kind of thing you want. You’ll also come across a few dress designs that you already have spotted online – styles you wouldn’t have thought of. Just like this beautiful deep red long dress, for example.

2. LONG BLACK GOWN

It’s really easy to see a dress online, or on the rack, and fall instantly in love with it, but you must remember that what looks good on the hanger (or on someone else) might not necessarily work as well for you. Flip the coin around – there are dresses that look horrendous on the rack that will look beautiful on you. Listen to what the sales girls (or boys) are saying to you. If they’re urging you to try on the dress, just try it on. They know what they’re talking about more than you do, and once again they might point you in the direction of something absolutely stunning that you might not have already thought of.

3. ELEGANT NAVY BLUE DRESS

When you’re wearing a dress as stunning as this elegant navy blue dress, you need to have the right ‘supporting cast’. By that, we mean you need the right underwear. Trust us when we tell you that the wrong underwear is the quickest way to completely ruin the silhouette of this dress, of all of these most beautiful Prom Dresses, in fact.

4. TWO PIECE LIGHT BLUE DRESS

What about a two-piece design? You might not have considered it when you first started out on your adventure to find the most beautiful Prom Dresses for your big night, but there’s something very cute, girlie, and super elegant about the look. If you really like your stomach, why wouldn’t you want to show it off?

5. SHORT LIGHT PINK DRESS

Most girls go long with their Prom Dress, so why not opt for something short instead? This tutu-inspired dress is so pretty and elegant, it doesn’t need long length on its side. You’ll also find that these dresses work really well if you’re lacking in length. By that, we mean you’re a little on the short side. Don’t worry, we are too!

6. LONG BLACK TULLE DRESS

If you’re going strapless, remember that you’ll need to go shopping for a backless bra. If you’re quite busty this can be hard work, and those see-through straps are never as see-through as they pretend to be. The good news is that you can get lots of structured underwear now that DO offer support when you need it the most. The best thing you can do is try different underwear on under the dress – take it with you when you go for your fittings. If it doesn’t work, you’ll still have time to shop around for something else.

7. WHITE HIGH LOW DRESS

Uneven hemlines are a really big deal right now. Although they seem quite casual in comparison, this photo shows that you can wear them as Prom Dresses too. It’s just a case of finding the right ones for you. This dress is beautifully nipped-in at the waist, which helps to create curves if you don’t already have them. Practical as well as pretty … Who’d have thought it?

8. SEXY Prom Dress

Check the rules before you turn up to your prom in a revealing most beautiful Prom Dresses like this. The last thing you’ll want is to get kicked out before you’ve even had a chance to enjoy the night. If you do want to go for something quite daring like this beauty, there are ways that you can alter it to have it slightly less revealing. You could have your seamstress put a panel of lace in a contrasting (or the same ) colour, adding a bit more dignity to the occasion.

9. LONG BURGUNDY DRESS

Before you head out on your hunt for the most beautiful Prom Dresses money can buy, make sure you actually get the money part figured out nice and early. What’s your budget? We know you want to look a million dollars, but there’s no need if your mom and dad need to remortgage their house … is there? You don’t need to spend a small fortune on Prom Dresses these days, and there are some really great stores out there, especially online, that offer amazing deals combined with stunning designs.

10. BLACK MERMAID DRESS

If you have more of a fuller figure, a bustier or corset style dress is a really good idea to keep everything in check. Not only will they help to bring you in at the waist, creating that enviable hourglass figure, they’ll also allow for some cracking cleavage. If that’s the sort of look you’re going for. Just remember not to put too much on display. You want classy after all.

11. OFF THE SHOULDER Prom Dress

If you don’t like your stomach, opt for a dress with detailing and pleats across the front. This will help to mask it, as such, and also to draw attention away. The same approach applies to any area of your body that you’re not overly confident with. Strapless dresses can have straps applied, and you can even add capped-sleeves in the form of lace or material to cover arms if you don’t like them. A shawl or shrug is also great for that. (Trust us, we know.)

12. BLACK MERMAID TWO PIECE DRESS

If you are buying a dress online, make sure you do your research first. This is an important dress for you and the last thing you’ll want is for it to turn up and look NOTHING liked you had planned. Make sure all the measurements correspond, and ask for measurements if none have been provided. You can tailor a little yourself at home, or by paying a seamstress to do it for you, but  buying from a dodgy site will leave you looking less than desirable.

13. SHORT FLORAL DRESS

A Prom Dress doesn’t need to be worn just the once. This design, for example, could easily be worn to a wedding, and might even double-up as a Bridesmaids dress, if you’re shopping around on a budget. If you’re going to a summer prom, opt for dresses that you CAN wear again, and the expense won’t be quite as shocking.

14. BLACK MIDI DRESS

Make sure you pick the right dress for your size. We know you’d like to pretend you’re a size down from what you really are (because we do that too), but an ill-fitting dress will not be flattering. Worse than that, you won’t feel good in it. Don’t you want to feel a million bucks? Figure-hugging dresses can easily be taken in a tiny bit if necessary, so always opt for one size bigger than smaller. There is nothing flattering about a too-small dress. If you’re that worried about it, just cut the size tags out. That’s what we do!

15. LONG VELVET DRESS WITH SLIT

Remember that your accessories are going to be really important, and this definitely applies to the footwear your pair with these most beautiful Prom Dresses. If you’re wearing heels, you might need a slightly longer length on the skirt of your dress. Make sure you account for this is you turn up to your fittings wearing a pair of sneakers or flat ballet pumps!

16. LONG, OFF THE SHOULDER RED DRESS

If you’re planning on having alterations made to your dress to ensure that it fits just perfectly, make sure you leave plenty of time. As a general rule these alterations will take two to three weeks, especially if a little more altering is required. Do not leave things too late, otherwise your gown won’t look anywhere near as amazing as this stunning creation.

17. LONG MINT DRESS WITH STRAPS

A high empire waist is a great look for girls who considered themselves to be “apple” shaped – carrying the weight towards the middle of the body. The long and loose length at the bottom will allow the fabric to give over your curves, and nothing will stick or cling. All in all, we think this is a great choice. And we’re totally in love with that mint colour too!

18. TIGHT SWEETHEART DRESS

Figuring out the right underwear for a sweetheart dress can be hard work, but we’ve done the research so you don’t have to. There are a few different options here.

You could have bra cups sewn into the lining of your dress if you want some support without the actual support.

You could also go for a long-line and strapless, but full-supported, bra. A longer length will generally mean it’ll stay up easier. Having a bust doesn’t mean you can’t go strapless, you just need to know how.

19. MODEST MERMAID DRESS

You don’t often get the opportunity to dress up like a real princess for the night, so really make the most of it. Treat yourself, if your budget will allow, and go for the while works – nails, hair, dresses, etc. Your hair is important, by the way, and the detailing of your dress will usually depict how your hair should go. A very detailed back, for example, is wasted underneath a mass of hair extensions. The details only count if people can see them …

20. RED DRESS WITH LONG SLEEVES

If you don’t like your arms, just wear sleeves. Covering up one part of your body just gives you the opportunity to show off another. If you like your midriff, for example, you could opt for a cut-out gown, just like this stunning red design. The glittery waist helps to nip you in at the waist, and there’s the right amount of under-boob to make the whole thing sassy and sexy. What do you think? Would you rock the sleeved look?

21. WHITE OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS

Short girls should definitely opt for a shorter length, mostly because all that material will just drown you otherwise. Slightly above the knee is a really good option, but you’ll want to check the rules for your prom first. Some say that you MUST wear a long skirt. Alternatively, opt for a dress with an uneven hem. The shorter length at the front still gives the illusion of you being ‘longer’ (like a shorter dress will achieve), but it still has the long and glamorous length at the back. It’s a winner all round!

22. SPARKLY TWO PIECE DRESS WITH A SLIT

It’s a brave look, we know that, but not completely unachievable. The floaty skirt, for example, makes it great for covering up the legs if you don’t like them, but the slit allows for just the right amount of sexiness. And if you quite like your arms, you have the perfect opportunity to show them off. That material just looks super lush too. Honestly, we can’t wait to get our hands on it.

23. BACKLESS SEQUIN DRESS

There are a few things you’ll need to know before opting for a backless Prom Dress. Firstly, finding the right underwear will take you a little while. Secondly, it’ll be a bit chilly from time to time. Thirdly, it’s bold and brave and you need to rock it if you’re going to rock it. And here’s how …

Use wrap-around bra-strap converters to make this dress easier to wear, whilst still giving yourself the support you need. Then you can wear some of your favourite bras without too much hassle, and you’ll find the confidence to wear glamorous stuff like this more often!

24. BLACK & GOLD

It’s very Egyptian-esque, Cleopatra-like, if you will? And that’s just why we love it, if we’re being honest. It would give you the perfect opportunity to really rock this black eyeliner flicks, and to pile on the gold eyeshadow that you’ve been dying to find an opportunity to wear. It’s just one night – rock it like you mean it!

25. LONG WHITE Prom Dress

It’s almost Wedding Dress-like, and that really does make a statement when you’re on the hunt for the most beautiful Prom Dresses for your big day. We’re in love with the hemline of the skirt, and we can’t help but think it looks a little bit like the petals of a flower. It’s a great dress for tall and slender girls, and will even fake curves if you have none to speak of.

26. BLACK SEQUIN DRESS

We think Jessica Rabbit would love a dress like this, a sassy little number that sparkles in all the right lights, for all the right reasons. You might think that rocking sequins is hard work, but you just need to do it with confidence. The black colour instantly makes it easier to wear than, for example, a bright red Jessica Rabbit-style dress, and as long as you keep everything else relatively muted, you’ll be on to a winner.

27. BURGUNDY DRESS WITH AN OPEN BACK

Another open-backed design, this totally falls in trend with the cage and gladiator-style bralettes we’ve been wearing since last summer. And that deep red shade? Yes, we’re definitely in love with that too. It’s very Hollywood glamour, especially with Hollywood glam makeup. Think big red lips and black eyeliner kitten flick and you have about the right idea.

28. UNIQUE LIGHT BLUE DRESS

If you’re a “pear shape”, a dress like this is a great design for you – fuller at the bottom and more fitted at the top. Your slender top half just begs to be adorned with the beautiful lace patterned detailing on this – one of the most beautiful Prom Dresses we’ve ever seen. What do you think? Would this dress be at the top of your list?

29. OPEN LONG MINT DRESS

Got a booty to be proud of? Do more squats than anyone else you know? Hell, rock that booty with a dress that rocks it for you. This open long mint dress is perfect for accentuating all your best curves, and even better than that, it’s still dignified and sophisticated too. Sexy, sassy, and just a little bit sweet – we love it, what about you?

30. SIMPLE, LIGHT PINK MIDI DRESS

This one gives you a modern take on the most beautiful Prom Dresses, a structured and tailored number that is very similar to a lot of the structured styles offered by designer, Victoria Beckham. It’s a look that means business, especially with those perfect shoes. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, this is definitely the way to do it.

31. BLACK LACE DRESS

The cold-shoulder trend is another trend we’re all loving right now, and this black lace dress, with all it’s elegant cut-outs, is a perfect way to rock the theme for a summer prom. Nipped-in waist, check. Beautiful mid-calf length that’s super flatting for basically everyone, check. Cut-out shoulders, covering bingo-wings yet showing off collarbones, check. It’s got everything you could want from your Prom Dress, and it’s a dress that could easily be worn for other occasions too.
