If you’re the kind of gal who likes to stand out from the crowd, check out these fabulous prom looks that are something a little bit different. Crop tops, cutouts,and vintage are just a few details that make unique prom dresses. Or for something even more different try a jumpsuit or suit. Here are some alternative prom styles for 2014.
1. Donna Karan Tuxedo Jacket and Wide-Legged Pants – Possible worn best by style icon Lauren Hutton, the white suit is a unique formal look that has been seen on the red carpet over and over and over again. If this DK combo is out of your price range, here’s a more affordable version. Or find a cropped white blazer to pair with these fabulous peplum pants.
2.Sasha Jumpsuit – With a structured split sweetheart neckline and a tied sash at waist, the top of this prom jumpsuit could be a dress but at the bottom, there is all the comfort of pants. The Fug Girls would never approve but prom is your party so rock out in a romper if you want to. Check out the rest of the Nasty Gal site for lots more unique and fashion forward looks.
3. Sherri Hill Two-Piece Dress – Another 2014 trend with vintage roots is the crop top. These belly-baring ensembles have been seen on more and more celebrities. Keep the look formal and demure by keeping the naval undercover with a touch of skin peeping out on top. And no, you don’t need to have six-pack abs to rock this look. Known for her curvy style, Mindy Kaling looked amazing (but not courageous) in her 2-piece ensemble.
4. Strapless Trumpet/Mermaid Prom Dress – If you’re going to go vintage, go really vintage! There are lots of retro ball gown silhouettes out there but there’s nothing more dramatic than the fitted trumpet dress. The texture of applique bodice, beaded belt, and ruching complete this stunning vintage prom dress.
5. BCBG Victoria Sleeveless Tied Dress – Cutouts are hot right now (Emma Stone got it just right here and here)! If a crop top is too much for you, this is classy way to show a hint of skin. With a high-low skirt, this dress hits two major dress trends of 2014.
Now the only question left is what prom hairstyle to wear? Check out these vintage and unique updos. Or let your outfit do the talking and wear hair down and straight or in this major hair trend, loose waves.
