2016 Prom Dress Trends: Mermaid

If you dream of having a prom gown worthy of an under the sea extravaganza, step into the 2016 season in a showy, curve hugging mermaid style dress. This is a head turning silhouette with enough grip to make even the “Little Mermaid” blush. These evening gowns follow your figure to the mid thigh or calf and then flare out at the bottom for a flirty skirt that will glide gracefully across the dance floor.

Sequins, gems, tulle, satin, and taffeta are all highlighted in in mermaid style gowns. The simple elegance of the style provides a wonderful blank canvas for each girl to find their signature look. Dazzle in a sophisticated number drenched in jewels or keep it classy with minimal beading but eye-catching prints. From flowers and polka dots, to damask and chevron, a mermaid gown will show it off to perfection.

Two-piece mermaids were abundant in the collections last year and this season is no exception. Sherri Hill has gowns laden in rhinestones and flanked with bold colors accenting her crop top mermaids. If classic is more your style, Alyce Paris keeps it simple with easy to wear designs that exude timeless fashions mixed with today’s edgy crop tops.

This is the style for the girl who wants to make a statement and do it with class. While this silhouette is not for the faint of heart, it screams elegance at every bend of the bodice. Walking into prom, jaws will drop, eyes will bulge, and you will be fighting off the compliments. If you’re a curvaceous girl dying for a gown that will get everyone talking, you “mermaid” for these gowns!
