Prom trends 2013

2013 is a big year for the prom dress with the UK's and Hollywood's young elite setting the bar very high when it comes to this season's event fashion. From Oscar-esque metallic evening gowns and catwalk inspired crystals and lace to bright whites and daring splits here's Team LBD's picks of prom trends straight from the red carpet... TREND: METALLIC MISTRESS Oscar-worthy golds and Sci Fi silvers on the slinkiest of cocktail dresses and ankle-grazing evening gowns make up one of our favourite prom trends this year. This is a great trend for your prom because it's the perfect way to show off some glitz and glamour without having to wear top to toe sequins. It's snazzy but chic all at the same time. Tone down the shine and keep your look grown up with black accents or accessories and go easy on the jewellery. FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF: Taylor Swift and AnnaSophia Robb. GET THE LOOK: HMH Couture Cleo Strapless Maxi Dress in Gold, £140; HMH Couture Orla Dress, £55; Kelly Ewing Lily Dress, £150. TREND: LADY IN RED This awards season anyone who was anyone coordinated their dress to the carpet in ravishing red. SS13 prom nights across the country will see the effects of this hot red carpet trend with floor-length scarlet gowns and our favourite ruby red retro-inspired A-line dresses. This year the young celebs have been working their statement red frocks with matching red shoes and lips or with subtle gold or silver detailing and subtle black accessories. This look is perfect for partying past prom night too! FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF: Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Selena Gomez. GET THE LOOK: Ruby Ray Beautiful Chiffon Dress, £155; Gorgeous Couture Eva Dress, £238; Kate Fearnley Long Buttercup Dress in Red and Pink, £180. TREND: DAZZLING WHITE The Grecian girl gone prom look is going to be huge for your end of year celebrations this year and you've got the Golden Girl of pop and the red carpet Taylor Swift to thank. But white isn't just for slim and leggy songstresses; a full-length white halterneck dress is perfect for adding height and minimising width for shorter, curvier girls too and whatever your shape or size white looks great with sun kissed skin and metallic accessories. FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF: Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lawrence. GET THE LOOK: Roc and Doll Fun and Frills Dress in Cream, £175; Rise Fashion Maggie Dress, £80; Lipstick Boutique Isabelle in Cream, £95. TREND: MY SWEETHEART The sweetheart neckline is a classic prom trend that is making a comeback for 2013. The elegant and feminine detailing alongside the slimming quality a dress with boning and bustier effect offers is an excellent choice for girls of all body shapes. Team LBD recommend choosing a sweetheart neckline dress in a bold, bright shade (or the celebs choice, sleek black) or teaming it with edgy heels and jewellery to stop it looking too Disney Princess. FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF: Carly Rae Jepson and Katerina Graham. GET THE LOOK: Kelly Ewing Ashleigh Dress, £150; Ruby Ray Floor Length Ombre Chiffon Dress in Blue, £230; Jarlo Delilah Dress in Turquoise, £87. TREND: COLOUR-POP From highlighter pen yellow to cotton candy pink the young, rich and famous fashionistas are injecting a bit of fun and a lot of colour in to traditional prom dresses this season. And we love it! Team your colour-pop prom hue with a sleek and sophisticated design so as not to look too fancy dress and team with high fashion heels and minimalist jewellery and you'll be looking as hot as the likes of Moretz and Michele! FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF: Chloe Moretz and Lea Michele. GET THE LOOK: Gorgeous Couture Bailey Maxi Dress in Coral, £214; Ruby Ray Summer Dress in Pink, £170; Elliot Claire Yellow Printed Evening Dress, £265. Shop all prom dresses here.
