Prom Gowns and Wedding Attire
The prom and wedding 2020 season are upon us. It’s never too early to start dreaming about dresses! There are many hot trends for the season that you should be aware of if you’d like to look swank for your big occasion.
#1: The Jumpsuit
Retro jumpsuits have seen a surge in popularity and 2020 looks to be their ruling season. If you want to slay prom night or the wedding reception in one of these powerful, glamorous one-pieces, a jumpsuit looks just as formal and appropriate as a dress; but makes a chic impact as it is still unexpected.
Look for a slight 70’s vibe with an off-shoulder cut and pair it with black heels, a smoky eyeshadow, and slicked-back hair.
#2: Red-Carpet Dresses
Be inspired by the glam from red carpet events and awards shows. The red-carpet look is all about being bold.
Details should be lavish, luscious and glamorous – think sparkling sequins and dazzling beadwork to catch the light.
To nail this style for your event, look for unique elements such as a shoulder ruffle, fringe or stone embellishment. Add accessories and makeup inspired by your favorite star to get it right.
#3: The Classic Ballgown
This classic A-line silhouette is back in fashion for fancy events. Much like a princess-style shape, this gorgeous style will make you feel very formal and dressed-up.
For 2020, the ballgown has been given a makeover and includes many savvy designs features such as floral applique, sheer bodices, lace-up backs and more. Gone is the ballgown gown as a dated or boring option – it can be just as unique.
Pair this style up with loose hair, a statement pair of earrings or a choker necklace, and ivory heels. Add some glowing makeup with a strong highlight that brings out your natural features.
4: Metallic Dresses
Metallic gowns have been strutting their stuff for seasons and aren’t going anywhere for 2020. This highly glamorous look is all about sparkling bright and standing out from the crowd.
New for the 2020 season, you’ll find almost every color of the rainbow available in metallic fabric or embellishment such as royal blue and ruby red options.
Wear your chosen metallic gown with simple accessories in black, white or nude. Keep makeup toned down, although a bold red or pink lipstick can add a gorgeous pop of color.
#5: Sequin Dresses
Competing with the metallic trend, sequin dresses are a hot favorite for the 2020 season. Glitzy and glamourous, these gowns allow you to feel like a diva as you pause for a pose.
Sequins can add a unique twist to any look. They can include a pattern or gradient, be reversible or iridescent. The options are limitless!
When wearing a sequin dress to your special night, opt to amplify the glam with metallic accessories and matching jewels. A chignon bun or loose wavy hairstyle is the perfect unfettered hairdo to complete your outfit.
Gowns, gowns, gowns…. the choices are astounding. Enjoy selecting the one that is right for you.
