Prom Dresses: Find Your Style

What's your prom style? Whichever prom dress you choose, you know you don't want to blend in with the crowd, and with these looks, you can show off your individuality. Best of all, every prom dress below is under $50, so you can splurge on accessories to make the look all your own.


Pretty in Pink for Prom Jump Girl Women's Junior One-Shoulder Dress Steven Women's 'Prosprus' Gold Metallic Platform Pumps Carlo Fellini Gold Mesh Chain Strap Clutch Charming Life 14k Goldfill Fuchsia Pink Crystal Briolette Earrings Goldtone Princess-cut Pink CZ Cocktail Ring Goldtone Textured Dotted Hole 5-pc Bracelet Set


If prom night is the night to show off your feminine side, go for a pretty-yet-bold pink one-shoulder dress. Glimmering gold accessories show that you're ready to party. Start with metallic platform pumps and add a mesh clutch. Keep the gold going in your jewelry, too. A stack of gold bangles (worn on the bare shoulder side), a pink CZ cocktail ring (on the other side), and pink crystal earrings are the perfect accents.


Dark Romance for Prom Dylan & Rose Junior's Black Lace Cut-out Back Dress Liliana by Journee Co Women's 'Gossip-1' Bow Accent Platform Heels Glitzy Rocks Sterling Silver Garnet and Diamond Heart Earrings Glitzy Rocks Sterling Silver Garnet Bracelet Valencia Flower Faux Leather Clutch


If your idea of romance is on the darker side, try a black lace dress with a cut-out back. Black tones down the sweetness of bows on your platform heels and flowers on your leather clutch. Accent your romantic look with blood red garnet jewelry: a garnet and sterling silver bracelet and diamond and garnet heart earrings.


Trend Setter for Prom Wishes Junior's Slate Blue Party Dress Gold over Sterling Silver Multi-layered Curb Adjustable Necklace BCBGeneration Women's 'Jodeci' Heels Betsey Johnson Rosetone Tiger Fashion Ring Dasein Rhinestone Bow Clutch Glitzy Rocks 14k Yellow Gold 5-mm Peridot Stud Earrings


If you'd rather set trends than follow them, start your look with a slate blue party dress and add on unexpected accessories to make a style statement. The sweetheart neckline adds curves to your shape, and it's perfect for a multi-chain necklace. You aren't likely to see anyone else at prom wearing two-tone heels, and a Betsey Johnson two-finger tiger ring is sure to set you apart. Add more vibrant color with a bright green clutch and peridot stud earrings.


Glamour for Prom

If you prefer to keep your look sophisticated, start with a glamorous teal dress with a jeweled belt and add sparkly accessories, like silver and taupe platform pumps and a metalized clutch. Diamond jewelry always brings the glamour. Diamond hoops will be gorgeous with a sleek up-do, and a diamond tennis bracelet finishes of the look.
