Sadly, I never had a prom when I was at school. I went to an all girls’ school up until I was 16 and was the only girl in the midst of boys when I was at sixth form (seriously) so sadly a prom was never on the cards. That doesn’t stop me, however, completely lusting over New Look’s range of pretty prom dresses though – despite the fact I’m 24!
With prom season almost upon us I thought this was the perfect time to write a wishlist of my top 5 New Look prom dresses…and yes I will be purchasing one! I have three weddings to go to this year, perfect excuse right?!
1. Shell Pink Lace Shoulder Prom Dress
This little number is so pretty. The soft pastel pink colour will suit so many skin tones and the black detail gives it an almost Parisienne feel. The belt will nip those in at the waist that need it and the lace sleeves are not only trés chic but also give a little extra security to those self-conscious about their upper arms.
2. Black Embellished Lattice Waist Prom Dress
Who doesn’t love a little black dress? The lattice waist and embellishments are super cute and the simple shape and spaghetti straps mean this simple little number can be accessorised to the max. Think killer heels, a chunky necklace and a little clutch – amazing!
3. Mint Green Embellished 2 in 1 Maxi Dress
Quite frankly, what’s not to love about this dress? It’s beautiful. The pastel mint green colour is just dreamy and the embellishment on the top means it has just the right amount of sparkle without looking like you’re a disco ball. Plus, a floor length skirt? Er, hello Cinderella dress!
4. Coral Strappy Embellished Waist Prom Dress
The embellished waist is back again! If you fancy a little bit of a bolder colour then this coral dress is a must. The floaty skirt is super girly and the neckline is so unusual and pretty with the little V-shape dip. As New Look described it, it’s a ‘classic with a hint of embellishment for an updated look’. Exactly.
5. Peach Halterneck Embellished Waist Maxi Dress
My absolute favourite of New Look’s prom dresses. Look at it. It’s just beautiful. There’s nothing I dislike about it – the halterneck looks super flattering, the peach colour is fit for a princess and the embellishments mean you’ll stand out from the crowd. No accessories needed, just a sparkly clutch and some silver shoes and you shall be the belle of the ball!
All of New Look’s prom dresses are priced somewhere between an amazing £29.99 and a super reasonable £59.99 and are available now both in stores and online. There’s a dress for every single one of you prom princesses and you’ll be sure to look a million dollars! ♥
