ONE of the most important parts of prom is what to wear ... do you wear a dress?

Do you spend loads of money? Do you get your dress custom made? Or do you go high street? Well there’s pros and cons to all of the above, and unfortunately we aren’t genies and we can’t grant your wishes to have the perfect dress that no one else has BUT, we can, at least, try and help.

We hunted high and low for some of the best dresses on the high street, online and in prom dress shops. We’ve divided them into three sections to help you decide the style that fits you best. If this doesn’t help, why not venture online, or try a prom app? Websites like Pinterest can really help you decide what style of dress would suit you, be warned though, you could be there all day looking at the dresses!

All out (more than £200):

The dresses we’ve picked for ‘all out’ are the dresses that are at the pricey end of the price scale, buy they are so worth it! From princess to fitted and Hollywood-esque, they’re all there. If none of these take your fancy, take a look at what else Amy Barker Boutique has to offer online.

High street (under £100):

For many, prom is just another day, it’s a day you don’t want to spend loads of money on, but it’s a day you don’t want to miss out on. There’s loads of high street options for this, we picked dresses from Topshop, Miss Selfridge and Quiz. All of the dresses were under £100 and still looked amazing. Remember, prom isn’t about the price tag, it’s about having a good time!

Bollywood (£100-150):

For the girls that love glitz and glamour the Bollywood look is for you. The dresses we’ve chosen aren’t traditional Bollywood, they are dresses that have a subtle Bollywood theme. For these dresses we’ve picked some from Love Niche clothing, they have a wide range of stunning dresses for a range of prices.

l If none of these have helped, keep an eye out for Spark Proms which will have more dress ideas and store ideas. Remember to have fun with what you wear, you don’t have to fit the norm, feel comfortable and pick something that suits you!
