3. Pink spaghetti strap mermaid dress

Looking for a Barbie-inspired prom dress? Then of course you gotta go pink. This fuchsia mermaid dress is for those who want to go big and bold.

The mesh corset paired with the flowing skirt gives you structure and softness all in one. The added layer to the skirt will make for cute photos—especially when you’re on the dance floor.

While this color is super on trend today, it will also fit right in at an 80s-themed prom.

When it comes to Barbie-inspired prom dresses, we know you want options this year. This particular style is flattering on any figure. The A-line silhouette is the unicorn of all silhouettes. No matter your body type, it’ll create an hourglass shape.

The detachable puff sleeves, alongside the shimmery fabric, also make this an elegant, royal look. It’s perfect for a vintage-themed prom.

If the above look is sunshine in a dress, this one is giving us sunset! Its warm hue and shimmering sequins will bring out your natural glow. Every hour is golden hour in this dress.

We have to say, this look is all about the details. The illusion deep-V neckline, beaded details, floral sequin designs—together, they take our breath away.

7. Blue A-line dress with sheer bodice

Soft, whimsical, angelic—this light blue prom dress is an absolute stunner. 

We have to take a moment to appreciate the details here. Its 3-D floral appliques are oh-so delicate and pretty. The feathered sheer bodice is super on trend. And the open back? Wowza.

If you’re headed to a fire and ice prom, this look will be a showstopper, for sure!

Prom can feel like a dream. It’s such a magical night. This blue and pink prom dress captures that feeling perfectly. It’s so soft and feminine!

The corset bodice and off-the-shoulder sleeves are ultra romantic, showing off your collarbone and shoulders. The tiered A-line skirt flows gracefully over your hips and legs. You’ll practically glide across the dance floor.

If you’re off to an enchanted forest-themed prom, look no further.

9. Blue mesh mermaid dress

We love a dramatic silhouette. While some mermaid-style prom dresses have a subtle “tail,” this dress brings all the volume.

If you’re looking for a vibrant, head-turning look, this dress is a top contender. This shade of blue is not for fitting in—it’s for standing out. And the deep-v neckline and voluptuous skirt create an hourglass shape that rivals Marilyn Monroe’s.

10. Strapless mermaid dress with layers

This dress is all about the glam—and we think there’s no better place for it than prom.

First, let’s talk about the skirt layers. This dress has them along the waist and sides of the dress, which is both flattering and luxurious.

It’s very trendy, with the corset bodice that cinches the waist. Snag this dress in pastel colors like mauve, peach, and champagne.
