You'll see that many of our newest dresses incorporate ruffles because they'revery in demand this year. Whether you choose an A-line or mermaid-style silhouette, the fluffy layers can easily add a dramatic effect. As you can see in the photo featuring our light purple dress, the A-line skirt becomes even more voluminous because of the ruffles. This particular number not only makes a statement, but it also emphasizes a tiny waist—and who doesn't love that?

A ruffled A-line skirt paired with a corset bodice accentuates your hourglass shape even more. It's such a flattering combination! Corset tops are also in right now, so you'll hit multiple trends with this one look!

Barbie totally influenced this year's fashion trends and we're not mad about it! If you want to lean into your girly side, then this 2024 prom dress trend has your name on it.

Let’s talk about Barbie pink. This classic shade is described as a vibrant magenta. However, other bright hues, like fuchsia and bubblegum, also capture the Barbiecore vibe.

When it comes to silhouettes or details, there are no rules for Barbiecore. This trend is all about being unapologetically bold, bright, and carefree. So, if a bodycon dress makes you feel that way, rock it! If you want a big ruffled skirt, you go girl! We encourage you to choose a Barbiecore dress that's true to you.

3. Bows

Bows are everywhere this year—including our list of 2024 prom dress trends! Fashion icons are all over this trend right now and you’ll see them rocking bows from petite ribbons to large, statement ones.

You want in on the trend, too? Then this dress won't disappoint! This green glitter crepe dress features one large bow at the waistline. Glitter crepe is a smooth fabric that drapes beautifully along the body, which allows this bold detail to take center stage.

Bonus points? This dress also captures the asymmetrical trend, which is defined by a slanted hemline or neckline. The most common design is a one-shoulder bodice, as seen here. Asymmetrical dresses were very popular last year, and there are no signs of this trend slowing down.

4. Sheer layering

Sheer layering is one of our favorite 2024 prom dress trends. There are so many ways to take your look to the next level using sheer fabric! It adds volume and unique details without overpowering the other features of your dress.

For example, this blue A-line dress uses mesh fabric to create an asymmetrical neckline with one billowy strap tied in a bow. But because it's sheer, you can also still admire the corset bodice.

5. Sequins

Ah, don’t we all love some sparkle! And what else can give you that perfect glittery glam look but sequins? This 2024 prom dress trend is for those who want to turn heads and shine all night!

The key to capturing this trend is committing to head-to-toe sequins. Don't worry, many dress options embrace these shimmering details. If you're looking for something sleek, opt for black or a gemstone hue. Or if you want something vibrant, choose a bright color like yellow, pink, or red.

This 2024 prom dress trend also encourages sequin-decorated accessories. Look for bedazzled clutches or shoes to complete your look.

6. Strapless

Thanks to the explosion of '90s-inspired fashion, strapless dresses are back! This style is great for emphasizing your hourglass shape because it draws attention to your shoulders. We recommend choosing a silhouette that will accentuate your curves even more, such as A-line or mermaid.

If you're worried that a strapless dress will keep falling down, we recommend choosing a prom dress with a corset bodice with boning. It adds structure to the bodice and ensures everything stays put. Yes, you can throw your hands up in the air like you just don't care!
