2012 prom dresses trends to target
Click on the picture of any dress to go to the site and get further information, such as color options:
  • Metallic Prom Dresses: Metallic tones are a really important trend for 2012 prom dresses. You should definitely consider irridescent taffeta, which is a fabric which looks metallic and can even change color as you shift under the lights!
  Metallics are blowing up on the catwalk right now, so grab a piece of the action to look quite different to the other girls!

I love this metallic prom dress and its layered skirt. Doesn't it remind you of Madonna's dress that she wore recently at the Grammy's too?  
  • Sweetheart Prom Dresses: A sweetheart neckline is certainly not new for 2012 prom dresses, however sweetheart prom dresses are a trend that continues to be strong. Girls just love that strapless, flirty look!
sweetheart brush train princess 2012 Prom Dresses
This is a real stunner! Ideal for any girl who really appreciates what it's like to look like a princess, the pretty brush train just tops off the whole thing!  
  • Leg Slit Prom Dresses: Another look which has been getting increasingly popular on the red carpet this year, leg slit prom dresses tantalise by showing off a little thigh, but look very classy at the same time! The great thing about this style of prom dress is that it's not quite as conventional as some, so by choosing it you're going to look quite striking compared to the other girls!
Floor-length A-line Sweetheart Leg Slit Prom Dress
The prom dress above may be black, but it's anything but invisible! Not only does it feature an epic leg slit, but it's also liberally decorated with beautiful, sparkling beading.  
  • Tiered Prom Dresses: These attractive skirts look quite cool and different, so if you like tiered prom dresses then you'll be in for a lot of fun with a dress like this!
Sleeveless Empire Tiered Prom Dress
As you can see, the above prom dress has a pretty tiered skirt which has volume, yet is very light too! It's a short dress too which is unusual for prom dresses and another trend to watch, so get on your dancing shoes, because you're going to be a lot more mobile than the girls in their long dresses!  
  • Orange Prom Dresses: Did you know that orange is Pantone's color of the year for 2012? We've seen a lot of celebrities wearing orange and also accessorizing with orange nails and lips, so why not get in with this popular trend and go with ornage prom dresses this year?
Oranges Sleeveless Satin Beading Prom Dress
I think this orange prom dress above is brilliant! Not only is the color so cool, but it also features a leg slit for extra impact!  
  • Hi-Lo Prom Dresses: The important thing to remember when choosing your prom dress is to find one that's individual and quite original. This is why our final trend is hi-lo prom dresses. These interesting prom dresses have a rather unique skirt which is both, you guessed it, high and low! They're definitely going to get you noticed!
Sheath Hi-Lo 2012 Prom dresses
This is a very glamorous prom dress that is characterised by its very noticeable hi-lo skirt that shows off your legs, but is still quite demure! It also has lovely beading as some extra decoration.   So there you have the final 6 of our important 2012 prom dresses trends. Which do you prefer? Do you like any of these trends?
