The fabric of your dream prom dress is just as important as the style and fit, and velvet prom dresses are dominating every collection for Prom 2018. The days of velvet being only a fall or winter fabric are behind us as this gorgeous textile is definitely one of the most fashion forward trends this prom season. There was a hint of this trend last year as well as a spike of velvet homecoming dresses during the fall, but your favorite prom dress designers obviously couldn’t get enough of this luxurious fabric.

Velvet prom dresses are perfect for the fashion forward girl who could care less about the “fashion rules” that others cling to. From crushed velvet 2-piece prom dresses to mermaid dresses with a velvet bodice, top prom designers such as Sherri Hill, La Femme, Alyce Paris, and Morilee Prom all flawlessly execute this trend. One of the best things about velvet prom dresses is that the fabric shines and makes a statement all on its own without the embellishments. If you are looking to turn heads in a dress that is elegantly designed and unlike what the majority of your peers will be wearing, this trend will have the style that you are going for. Make a dramatic entrance and stun everyone around in a glamourous velvet prom dress for prom 2018.
