Every year when prom season rears its fabulous head, Little Black Dress is overloaded with beautiful dresses that wouldn’t look out of place on the red-carpet. The typical prom attire has evolved from Barbie-esque sugary shades and Big Fat Gypsy Wedding shapes over the years, into an ‘anything goes’ uniform, but of course in elegant moderation! Whether you’re a ladylike modern-day Hepburn or sassy real-life Jessica Rabbit, we have five prom-proof outfits to inspire you this weekend as the big day draws closer!

Classic

If your style is all about exuding elegance and styling yourself in timeless pieces, then a floor length cream number like the Chi Chi London Imani Dress in Cream, for £52.99, will do the trick with plenty of prom-glamour in the form of gold sequins. The demure high-neck oozes sophistication, whilst the cinched waist and plunging neckline will still flaunt your figure. Opt for vintage inspired earrings and matching gold accessories for a classic look Grace Kelly would be proud of.
