Spotlight On: Mermaid Prom Dresses

mermaid style prom dresses

ATTENTION ladies still looking for a prom dress: have you considered the classic mermaid silhouette? If you’re not familiar with this popular style, allow us to give you a ‘lil fashion recap. This much-loved silhouette clings to the body and draws in at the knees, giving a “fin-like” shape similar to-you guessed it!-Ariel herself.

Think of it as contouring for the body, giving your curves a streamlined appearance, balanced by a flared skirt below the knees. Um, can you say pictures, puh-lease? Mermaid prom dresses come in plenty of options; go for a sleek satin style with an elegant hint of shine or opt for a flirty sheer skirt to show hints of leg. Love a good print? Show a bit of personality with a whimsical magenta pattern bearing an off the shoulder neckline.

Keep in mind this style offers a bit more drama than a simple A-line or straight silhouette. But if you’re seeking something that sets your curves on fire, a mermaid dress is an easy winner.
