Every girl wants to dress to impress on prom night. Whether it’s your friends, your family, or yourself, I know you’re looking for prom gowns that put all eyes on you. You want to flatter your figure, stand out from the crowd, and let your personal style shine. There are plenty of great trends this year to help you do that, but one of my favorites has to be backless prom dresses. When done right, low back prom gowns have the power to turn every head when you turn around. Some of the most beautiful looks come from designers we carry, like Flirt Prom and La Femme. Here are a few style tips to consider when shopping backless dresses.
How to look flawless in backless prom dresses:
Buying a backless gown takes a bit of consideration. You need to consider fit, styling, and undergarments in order to complete your prom 2014 style. First, figure out which designers you love. My personal favorites for this trend are Flirt Prom and La Femme
. Next, consider fit. Some prom dress designers forget that the gown’s fit determines the impact of an open back. If the the dress is loose on your body and your back is exposed, you’re looking at wardrobe malfunctions and an unflattering fit. Make sure you have plenty of support in the waist or bust when considering open or low back prom gowns.
Hairstyles for open-back dresses.
If you really want to show off this elegant trend, I suggest wearing your hair up. Your updo style should reflect that of your dress. If you’ve selected a satin sheath dress, try a chic chignon bun. If you’ve chosen chiffon, go for a more relaxed style and wear your hair in a loose updo with curls falling around your face and neck. Dangling earrings bring attention to the neck and back, so start shopping prom accessories to complete your look
You still need a bra for a backless dress.
