This color is often associated with royalty, luxury, and power. Whether you're looking for a light purple prom dress or a dark purple prom dress, your outfit will command the attention you deserve!
Ready to see some stunning options? Here are four regal purple prom dresses that deserve the crown.
💜 Four Purple Prom Dresses That’ll Make You Feel Like Royalty ✨
You're a queen. It's time to find you a purple prom dress to match. Here are four of our favs.
1. Lace-up mermaid dress with leg slit
This purple prom dress is for the girlies with next-level confidence. From the cut to the fabric, all eyes will be on you when you enter the room.
First, let's talk about the cut. A mermaid silhouette is one of our favorites because it embraces a woman's curves. It hugs the body and flares at the knee, enhancing your natural hourglass shape. If there's a time to show off your feminine energy, prom is certainly it. The lace-up back and leg slit make this look extra fierce. You'll love these features if you have a bold and bright personality.
Now, how about that dazzling fabric? Head-to-toe sequins will ensure the light hits your dress beautifully wherever you go. And the beaded bodice brings extra sparkle, making your royal look oh-so effortless.
💞 Style tip: Show off those shoulders and collarbone with a sleek updo, like a curled ponytail. Wear silver accessories, like shoulder-grazing earrings, to complete this luxe look!
2. Asymmetrical mermaid dress with a long puff sleeve
On the hunt for a dark purple prom dress? How about a velvet and sequin dark purple prom dress? Yes, it's better than you ever imagined!
Velvet and sequins cover the entire dress, creating a unique texture that'll capture the interest of all your friends. (Plus, it'll keep you warm. If the evenings are chilly at this time of year, you can rock this dress and skip the bulky coat.)
If you consider yourself a trendsetter, then you probably noticed this purple prom dress' asymmetrical cut. We love the asymmetrical trend, too! It's the perfect way to modernize this regal color. Paired with one long puff sleeve? Uh, yes please! You're going to feel like a model on a runway.
💞 Style tip: This show-stopping look deserves glamorous hair and makeup. Side-swept curls and a smokey eye will make you feel like an absolute queen.
3. Embroidered chiffon A-line dress
Nothing is more regal than gold embroidery. While this purple prom dress brings us back to the basics of royal wear, there's nothing basic about it!
The gold beads zhuzh up the bodice and call attention to the small waistline created by the V neckline and A-line silhouette. If you're looking for a flattering cut for any body type, this one is it.
Chiffon is an airy fabric that's great for warmer weather. If you live somewhere hot, it's a fab choice—you can dance the evening away feeling comfortable. But it's not just practical. It drapes beautifully on the body and looks stunning in photos. Win-win!
💞 Style tip: A dark purple, like eggplant, pairs well with yellow and gold tones. Gold eyeshadow and accessories will enhance the colors of this dress and make this look a total knockout.
4. Satin A-line dress with waistband
We love how many shades of purple prom dresses you can find. If you envision yourself wearing a light purple prom dress, this lilac number has your name on it.
On prom night, we all want to glow, right? Well, this purple prom dress will literally make your skin glow! Its pastel hue will bring out your natural tan. And the satin fabric will enhance the dewiness of your skin. A little pro tip from us? Apply some highlighter to your cheekbones, collarbone, and shoulders for extra shimmer.
This dress also offers an A-line silhouette, which is slimming for all body types. But here's a bonus: the wide waistband. This waistband further cinches the waist and creates an ultra-flattering shape—so you can look and feel your best on this big day.
💞 Style tip: Embrace this whimsical dress by keeping your hair and makeup natural. A pink lip, rosy cheeks, and loose curls are all you need to make a statement.
