GREEN WITH ENVY: STAND OUT IN A STRIKING GREEN PROM DRESS
Choosing a color for your prom dress is one of the first steps to finding your perfect outfit. And if you’re here, it means you’re made your choice and you’re interested in a green prom dress. Hooray! You’ve reached a major milestone in your search.
Green prom dresses are a great choice. This color is having a huge moment in the fashion world. It’s cute—and trendy!
Ahh, but now you must pick a shade of green. Who would’ve known there were so many decisions to make?! Not to worry, we’re here to help by showing you some of our favorites.
💚 Six Green Prom Dresses in Six Gorgeous Shades 🍀
From dark green prom dresses to light green prom dresses, find six striking options below.
1. Forest green prom dress
Our first green prom dress is a deep shade of forest green. And it dazzles with glitter crepe fabric and sequins!
It’s your prom after all, so we encourage you to embrace the embellishments—sparkles, feathers, beads and all!
This forest green prom dress offers a trumpet silhouette, which means it flares at the mid-hip (versus a mermaid silhouette, which flares at or below the knee) and enhances your curves. If you’ve got it, flaunt it! The mesh layers add volume and make these shapes even more dramatic. Va-va-voom!
2. Olive green prom dress
This green prom dress glimmers in an olive green shade. It’s a beautiful choice if you want to accentuate your tan.
Here, you get a mermaid silhouette, which flares at the knee, as we mentioned. The bonus? A slit on the skirt. It allows you to show off your legs and gives you more room to walk and dance freely. (Yes, it’s multi-purpose!)
We love that this olive green prom dress offers a unique texture. Sequins on velvet? Nobody else will be rocking a fabric like this one! If you’re worried that you’ll be warm in a velvet dress, have no fear. The slit and spaghetti straps will ensure you keep cool.
3. Emerald green prom dress
Emerald green prom dresses are some of our favorites. We love gem shades. They’re so regal and luxurious. Channel your inner queen in this one, ladies!
This green prom dress is made of satin. Its smooth and shiny appearance—paired with gold embroidery—will truly make you shimmer beneath the lights.
Now, let’s talk about that ruching at the hips and back. This helps cinch and slim the waistline, drawing attention to an hourglass shape. (Hello, Marilyn Monroe!)
Since you’re interested in green prom dresses, we know you’re a fashionista, so you’ll love the asymmetrical neckline. Show off those shoulders and complete the look with some gold shoulder-grazing earrings.
4. Sage green prom dress
Sage green prom dresses are effortlessly cool. They’re perfect for the girlies who want an understated yet glam look.
While this color is not as bright as other shades, it’s definitely striking—especially with silver sequins on top. It really makes the metallic design pop, don’t they?
The asymmetrical neckline and mesh skirt also add drama to the look. They create unexpected shapes that will definitely turn heads. Don’t go simple with your hair and makeup for this green prom dress. Our recommendation? A slick-back hairdo and bold eyeshadow.
5. Hunter green prom dress
If you love the sage prom dress above, you’ll adore this dark hunter green prom dress, too.
Thanks to its dark hue, the beaded design on the bodice is prominent and eye-catching. We love that it flows into the skirt and accentuates the waist.
You know what also accentuates the waist? The silhouette! A-line dresses flare out at the smallest part of your body, which guarantees a flattering figure. To make your hourglass shape even more dramatic, look for a skirt with billowy layers.
With a slit on the skirt, you have to promise to strike a pose and show off your shoes. We recommend a shimmering silver pair for this look.
6. Mint green prom dress
Yes—there are light green prom dresses, too. If pastel shades are your jam, you’ll love this mint green prom dress.
Light shades of green are always popular during the spring and summer months. Prom is no exception. They bring out your natural tan and make your complexion look incredible.
This time of year, we also gravitate towards florals. Perhaps that’s why we’re in awe of this floral embroidery. It’s so chic and feminine.
What makes this dress unique? It’s a mock two-piece dress! Yes, you get the daring look of a two-piece gown but with extra coverage. It’s the best of both worlds!
