Channel Your Inner Princess with a Ballgown Prom Dress
Unless you’re a lover of the limelight, a ballgown prom dress can be intimidating. Its grand, full skirt feels ideal for a fancy night out, but girls with a more minimalist fashion sense may be reluctant to try this lavish silhouette. But as they say in fashion and in life, you’ll never know unless you try! If you’re still in the running for finding that perfect prom dress and have debated on wearing a ballgown before, slip one on during your next round of prom shopping. Who knows; it could be love at first fit! With its full skirt and figure-hugging bodice, a ball gown style works for all body types, especially if you’re tall, as the grand shape balances out a long frame. But petites, have no fear! Ballgowns are flattering for you too; just look for an A-line style with a skirt that’s not as full. The Camille La Vie collection offers a range of beautiful ballgown prom dresses that give off that “I just stepped out of a fairytale” vibe. Ready for a happily ever after evening (and plenty of twirl-worthy Boomerangs?) Explore stunning styles in both shiny satin and ballerina-esque tulle, with a variety of gorgeous necklines like strapless, spaghetti strap, illusion, and more flattering cuts. And we know you’ll fall in love with the pretty embellishments; find luxe beading, chic applique, and rich embroidery, among other standout details. Whether you’re a limelight-loving princess or prefer to look chic on the sidelines, browse a variety of ballgown prom dresses that are made for an unforgettable evening.

No worries; a timeless column or ballgown silhouette with simple detailing is a look that stands the test of time. Eager to discover your dream dress? The Camille La Vie prom dress collection includes a blend of both trends and classics at fabulous value. We broke down some of the most popular prom dress styles so you can shop for your desired look without breaking stride. Scroll below and prepare to score an A+ in prom fashion.More
Illusion Prom DressesAn illusion prom dress bears a sheer, mesh-like fabric somewhere within the style, usually in the bodice. This look is super popular in the Camille collection and is stylish, sophisticated, and great for showing peeks of skin without looking too revealing.
Corset Prom DressesIf the term “corset” has you thinking of fashion from hundreds of years ago, you’re correct! However, this old-school style has found its place in modern eveningwear, and a corset prom dress makes for a totally unique look at formal. But what exactly is it? This type of bodice is structured and a bit stiff, often with a lace-up back, like the dress above. Because it’s formfitting and highlights your upper body, a corset is usually paired with a full skirt.
Halter Prom DressesChances are you know this one! A halter prom dress wraps around the neck and flatters the back and shoulders for a flirty finish. Shop this style if you are looking to show a bit more skin, as a halter bodice typically has an open or cutout back.
Lace Prom DressesFeminine and oh-so sweet, you cannot go wrong with a lace prom dress! Whether it’s pops of lace or full body detailing like the style above, this classic fabric is a mainstay in formal fashion. This prom season, slip into a lace dress for a look everyone will covet.
Sequin Prom DressesIs that a sparkle in your step…or is it just your dress? (We think it’s both!) Made for the gal who lives for the limelight, a sequin prom dress is meant to dazzle. Hoping to ease into the look with a little less…. shine? Shop Camille La Vie to find subtle sequin detailing or a fully sequined bodice paired with a solid skirt. Now where’s the party?
Off the Shoulder Prom DressesThere’s just something about an off the shoulder prom dress that hints at Old Hollywood glamour. Highlight your arms and neckline with any off the shoulder prom dresses from the Camille La Vie collection. We just know the paparazzi will be waiting.
Strapless Prom DressesA strapless prom dress is a timeless choice for your formal celebration! Leaving the entire neckline on display, a strapless style pairs perfectly with a statement necklace or chandelier earrings that just graze the shoulders. Browse endless strapless prom dresses of varied colors and styles with Camille La Vie!
A-Line Prom DressesIt’s in the name, no? An A-line prom dress is all about the silhouette, i.e., a skirt that mimics the shape of the letter “A.” Narrower on top and slightly flared down below, an A-line style is a classic form of eveningwear that flatters all body types. Discover countless A-line prom dresses with Camille La Vie and prepare for a picture-perfect prom night!
