Why 2012 Prom Dresses? Does It Make A Difference?

When you're shopping for something fashionable like clothing or gadgets do you immediately go and buy last year's model? Of course not! Who goes into the Apple store now and insists on buying and iPhone 4 now that the iPhone 4s is out? Well the same is true of prom dresses and there are a lot of good reasons to focus your search on 2012 prom dresses rather than last year's styles! Let's take a look at some of the reasons:
  • You need to get a unique dress and new, more fashionable 2012 prom dresses have more chance of being unique than 'old favorites.'
  • You can show everyone that you have your finger on the fashion pulse and weren't dresses according to what your mom says 'looks lovely!'

I'm going to talk a bit about each trend and give an example from OuterInner.com's selection of 2012 prom dresses so you can actually see what I mean. To get more details about each dress that you see, just click on its picture:
  • Long Prom Dresses: This is a very typical choice for prom which is, after all, a formal event. Long skirts have a certain elegance that you lose with shorter dresses and so if you want to make an impact and look lady-like then long prom dresses are for you! Check out our long prom dresses blog to get more information and examples!

This lovely long prom dress is a good example as it's sleek, elegant and has a pretty lustre to it. Its silhouette will unleash your inner princess and look at its gorgeous train!  
  • One Shoulder Prom Dresses: A really gorgeous trend! One shoulder prom dresses have a real touch of glamour that will help you stand out from the crowd. They're flirty too, as they show off some skin, without going too far. Don't forget that you need a strapless bra for this style.

So, the above dress shows off the typical one-shoulder perfectly and you can see that it's a little unconventional, but very lovely and like something stars would wear on the red-carpet.  
  • Lace Prom Dresses: Lace is everywhere these days, especially since it was an important part of the British royal wedding last year. You'll see a lot of lace prom dresses this year, and it's a really lovely girly touch.

  • Strapless Prom Dresses: A very fun and flirty look, there are so many lovely strapless prom dresses around that you can really take your pick and pick up an amazing one! They are especially good because they really show off your neckline, shoulders and upper torso in a classy, feminine way. If you have a large bust be careful not to reveal too much!

  • Blue Prom Dresses: "Choose any style as long as it's blue!" That's what experts are saying this year, and blue is the world's most popular color so you won't go wrong with blue prom dresses!

This light blue color is eye-catching and fresh! Much nicer and more fun in my opinion than a darker blue, and prom is formal but should still be a fun time!  
  • Short Prom Dresses: The polar opposite of long prom dresses, short prom dresses are the less serious, more fun cousin of them. Wear a short prom dress if you want to stand out and look different. You'll also find them a lot more comfy if you're going to be dancing! More traditional people might tut, but who cares what they think?! Get more info from our short prom dresses blog here.
