Every girl needs one and high school fashionistas are no exception from the allure of the timeless LBD, exemplified by the eternally chic Kendall Jenner, who had our LBD Kendall dress named after her. Its sweet skater skirt provides a young and flirty edge while the trendy spaghetti strap cami top keeps it current.

The ultimate trend for all-out glamour is perfect for fashion magpies. Go metallic and you can’t fail to shine!

For those who love a print, floral is perfect for standing out without losing the softness and femininity. Taylor Swift is the obvious inspiration for this trend, with the Nataliya Couture Brianna Dress in Blue mirroring her vintage 50s style to perfection and acting as a great statement look for an alternative to the traditional one-piece dress.

90s Prom Gal
This look is based on the adorable pastel and feathered girly styles seen in such classic 90s films as Clueless and Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion, still eternally replicated by the fashion set including Rihanna and Charli XCX. The model has been styled in none other than the LBD Gwyneth Dress, based on Miss Paltrow’s iconic Ralph and Russo Oscars gown.
