  1. Masquerade Ball

A Masquerade themed Prom has been popular for years. It just never goes out of style!The thrill of this theme is the mystery of who’s who behind the mask. For this particular Masquerade, Promgirl has selected this gorgeous Teal 2 piece dress (CLARISSE 2 Piece Prom Dress 2837) that really captures the mystery and fantasy of a Masquerade Ball. Perfect accessories to enhance the look, are small studded diamond earrings, a diamond cuff, silver heels with a bit of sparkle, and a mask with an intricate design and a touch of teal or turquoise to match the dress.

                  2. Hollywood

A Hollywood theme is perfect for you and your #glamsquad. Lights, camera, action, this is what the City of Angels is all about! We chose this sophisticated evening gown (CLARISSE Special Occasion Dress M6202) for the big night. It’s a bombshell of a dress, making any girl feel like a movie star on the red carpet. Paired with the black fitted gown are gold heels, gold chandelier earrings, and a simple but chic evening clutch. You’ll look like a glamorous movie star for sure!

3. Gatsby Style

Gatsby Style Dress

The roaring 20’s is an era that everyone adores. Everything was so extravagant and New York City was booming with party after party. Fitzgerald wrote one of the great American novels (and High School English class staple) The Great Gatsby, capturing the essence of this time period. For this iconic Prom theme Promgirl was too excited to put this themed look together! 1920s flapper dresses at the height of fashion were straight up and down column dresses that de-emphasized one’s curves. Not the most flattering silhouette, so we update the look with a trendy mermaid dress by Tony Bowls (TONY BOWLS Black Gown 114746) with an art deco inspired bodice. For accessories, an art deco crystal bracelet, white and black crystal pendant earrings, black strappy heels, and an evening clutch with so much sparkle. By far our favorite Prom theme!

4. A Night in Paris

Oh the romance—cue the handsome Parisian waiter, but back to the theme! Paris is romantic and screams elegance. For this theme, A Night in Paris, picking a dress that shows exactly romance and elegance was a piece of cake! This tulle ruffled tiered ball gown (Prom Gown 17131), is perfect for just the occasion. The dress is paired with Eiffel Tower crystal earrings, a crystal studded bracelet, blush heels with an organza flower, and a blush clutch adorned with lace.

5. Under the Sea

We selected this Sea Green dress (Beaded ALYCE Gown 6193) with a skirt that flows like the waves. The top of the bodice is adorned with crystals that resemble a shell pattern. To capture the Sea theme, we paired pearl earrings, coral heels, a seashell head band, and a shell shaped clutch. This look will be a huge it at your under water dance!
