Picking the perfect prom dress is no easy task. As well as wanting to look your very best (after all, an Instagram lasts a lifetime), you need a dress that’ll work equally as well on the dance floor, ensuring comfort from dusk to the early hours of the morning. So whether you’re after a statement-making style or something more understated, get inspired for your big night with our top six prom dresses for 2018.
1. Twilight Sky
Dressing for drama? Hand-embellished using traditional artisanal techniques, this floor-length navy gown makes a show-stopping choice for prom night. Finished with a defined waist for the most flattering fit, this twilight-toned piece is detailed with a sheer mesh neckline and a scattering of hand-stitched sequins for a subtle shimmer. Wear yours with a chic up-do.
2. Blush Hour
Soft pink continue its reign as one of fashion’s most ubiquitous colours, evoking a sense of modern femininity. Take it to prom night with this floor-sweeping style in barely-there blush, decorated with sequinned pink florals across the bodice. We like how the criss-cross back straps reveal a glimpse of skin.
3. Screen Siren

Designed for a flattering fishtail silhouette, this dancefloor-ready design is finished with a low back which complements both loose ‘dos and tousled buns. Wear yours with a tonal clutch bag.
