The great thing about prom dress ideas is that there are so many styles to choose from. Many of these girls can get inspiration form just about any runway, movie, magazine or celebrity. Even though this is the prom and you will do just about anything to have the most impressive dress at the event, you still need to choose a dress that suits your body type. If you are short, a knee-length prom dress can do you justice while taller slim girls look great in long or short dresses. Luckily, there is an array of popular dresses, so the majority of girls find something more than suitable.
Choosing to recreate a dress off the runway for your prom can be very daring. Although you will be sure to have the latest trends it is not always a good idea. Most runway dresses are very bold and some can look like nothing you've ever seen before. When deciding to go this route, make sure you choose something that is wearable and will not get a lot of bad stares. A very simple dress can really bring out your beauty. You want to be remembered for how great you looked, not how ridiculous. Some designers choose to make statements and they use the runway as a platform to be creative. However, there are designers that do create dresses that are appropriate for proms and do set the up and coming trends. Just be careful not to get confused between the two.
Magazines are also a great place to get prom dress ideas. Some of the most popular dress styles are taken from fashion magazines such as Vogue, Seventeen Magazine and Elle. They will usually display designs that are trendy at the moment, will be trendy very soon, or possibly retro styles that are still in. You will also get an idea of what not to wear. Even supermodels can look bad in some dresses.
