Prom Outfit Ideas 2015

The end of the school year is fast approaching, and I’m sure that many of you will be starting to think about what you’re going to wear to Prom. Today I thought I’d put together 5 outfit ideas that I would love to wear if I were lucky enough to be heading to an event like that this year. As always, I hope you guys will like them!

Prom Outfit Idea featuring a Gold Dress1 | 2 | 3 | 4

The first outfit I’ve put together I definitely think screams ‘glamorous event’. It consists of a sequinned rose gold maxi dress with a zig zag pattern from Quiz, which has flattering V-neck and open back for added glam! I then paired it with some super stylish nude heels from Office, with a single strap at the toe and an ankle buckle fastening.

I felt that this look needed minimal accessories, so I chose a matching rose gold envelope clutch from Next and a gorgeous rose gold plated Riva Diamond Hoop Ring from Monica Vinader. I think they compliment the dress beautifully.

Prom Outfit Idea featuring a Little Mistress Dress1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Next up, I found this gorgeous cream and black embellished dress from Little Mistress. I just love the bustier detail on it. I would pair this with some black strappy heels that I have in my collection. They’re from New Look and are the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever owned, despite having a 4 inch heel! The first time I ever wore them I was on my feet for a good 3-4 hours and I didn’t complain once … Nathan was really impressed.

Again, I don’t think this dress needs too many accessories to go with it, but I’d add this glittery box clutch from ASOS to jazz it up a little more, and a gold captured heart ring from Pandora.

Prom Outfit Idea featuring a Black Cocktail Dressone shoulder dress | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Black cocktail dresses are perfect for prom as they can make you look instantly slimmer and give you a major confidence boost. This one shoulder chiffon cocktail dress from Cheap DressUK really caught my eye because as well as being absolutely stunning, it is also made-to-order, so you can be sure that it’s a perfect fit! I think a simple, yet elegant pair of strappy sandals like these ones from Office would compliment it wonderfully.

With a dress like this I think it’s alright to go a little more OTT with accessories, so I chose a black clutch bag from Kurt Geiger, which has a ‘dazzle’ effect on the closure, a pair of stunning Riva Diamond Hoop Earrings from Monica Vinader and a statement knot cuff from Jaeger, which is actually made from polished brass!


Prom Outfit Idea featuring a Blue Cocktail Dress1 | 2 | 3 | 4

If you’re after a more affordable outfit for prom than the ones I’ve put together above, I would look no further than high street stores Quiz and New Look. Blue cocktail dresses uk are a great alternative to black, and one that I am loving right now is this little aqua number! It is made from a beautiful mesh fabric, and features a ruffled skirt design. The bodice has an intricate sequin embellishment over the mesh to give it a burst of glamour… this dress is bound to be an eye catcher!

I think that silver goes really well with aqua, so I would add a pair of sparkly court shoes with a cut out detail on them and a silver Czech Diamante Stretch Bracelet, then mix up the colour just a little by carrying a cream pearl flower box clutch.

And last but certainly not least, I went for a maxi panel dress by Wal G. It is actually a mini dress, with long panels down each side so it looks more like a maxi. It’s a very simple, yet clever idea, and it looks really glam! If I was wearing this to an event I would definitely wear a nice pair of nude platform shoes with it, like these ones from boohoo.

To accessorize this dress I went for an elegant looking satin clutch bag from Quiz, a stack of beautiful entwining silver rings and a pair of statement stud earrings with blue crystals, both of which were from Pandora.

And there you have it, 5 outfit ideas that are perfect for prom this year. I’d love to hear your thoughts on them.

Are any of you guys off to prom this year?

      Thank you Laurel. Prom wasn’t something we did over here in the UK when I was at high school so I never got to experience it. Which probably explains my obsession with it now! LOL X

    Beautiful gowns and accessories! I just wish they were more modest. I know that most people wouldn’t hesitate to wear them, but my religion promotes more modest attire.

      Thank you so much for your feedback Kerry. I never thought of that when I wrote the post. I plan on doing more posts like this though, so I will most definitely keep that in mind next time I put one together 🙂 X
