4 Red Prom Dresses that I Loved in 2016

Red prom dresses are easily the most popular during prom season. When I was shopping for my special event, I was floored by the number of styles that they had available today. Of course, as great as a style looks, it doesn’t mean it’s going to look great on you. I headed over to and got a look at the diverse collection they offered and settled on the following four styles for this year.

  1. Sweetheart necklines. Strapless sweetheart necklines are the best way to accentuate your bust. As a single gal at prom – this option seemed like a no brainer.
  2. Mermaid train. Several of the red prom dresses I looked at sported the mermaid train. This style is perfect if you have a slimmer silhouette because it fits snug against the body through the thighs and flares out at the bottom for a robust hourglass feel. It is super sexy and classy – perfect for prom.
  3. Hi-low Skirts. I definitely have some mixed feelings about hi-low skirts. However, once I tried one on I was hooked. These dresses have short fronts, but are longer in the back, not unlike an 80s mullet. The style seems to work for fashion and lets you show off a cute pair of shoes.
  4. Sleeved dresses. If you are self-conscious about your arms then you will love sleeved dresses. Unlike older styles that looked frumpy and old, the lace sleeve options of today are to die for. They are sleek and elegant while giving you the added coverage you are looking for.

All the best styles of prom dresses are available in red. Be sure to try on a few to see what works for your body before ordering one offline. Keep in mind that the fabric is typically not forgiving so ordering a size up and having your dress tailored to fit perfectly is always a wise idea.
