What’s Trending for Prom 2019

Prom 2019 is upon us and the trends are as gorgeous as ever! The Outer Banks Wedding Guide is here to show you which trends are most popular for 2019 prom season. From elegant ball gowns to simple pastel pieces, there is a lot of unique styles to choose from while deciding what’s in for this year. We even will touch base on some hair styles that are in for the 2019 prom season.


Whimsical floral prints, floral embroidery, even two-piece floral print sets are trending. With floral prints, you can add a pop of color with your shoe choice that matches the floral print in your dress. Have fun with it! You can’t always rock vibrant purple heels, but if your dress has purple floral patterns, then it could really help bring out the stylish details of the dress.


The flowy, floor-grazing appeal of a maxi dress is undeniable. Maxi dresses are typically form fitting at the top and cut to flow loosely over the body at the bottom. We seem to be seeing a lot of this particular dress style in solid hues. Some hues that are really popular are mauve, blush, pastels, jewel tones, and light greys/denim blues. These are just some examples. Any color you decide to go with will look amazing and show off your personal style. A wrapped maxi dress is really popular this 2019 prom season as well.


If you want to make a bold statement and turn heads, a sleek side slit dress is the perfect choice! “A slit instantly adds drama and just enough of a flirtatious element to any dress. Not only is this right on point for 2019, but it’s a timeless look that your future (likely more stylish) self will thank you for when looking back at old high school photos.” According to Sadie Murray, a style and beauty expert and founder of The Go-To Girlfriend. http://www.thegotogirlfriend.com/


Sequins have come a long way. You used to only see them covering the entire gown but now they’re offered in a range of cuts. Some dress have sequins and rhinestones that only decorate the bodice, the close-fitting upper part of a dress, covering the chest and back above the waist. It’s the glitter that matters.


What better way than to look like a princess than to get glammed up and wear a ballgown to prom this year. This formal dress style is the classic fit and perfectly flatters every single body type. According to celebrity stylist and fashion expert Ali Levine, ballgowns are making a big comeback for 2019.

Most likely you will be ordering your prom dress from an online boutique. If that’s not the case for you, then there are a few local options. Here on the OBX we’re slightly limited to formal wear stores. We like to keep it casual around here. Luckily there are a couple of local stores to shop around for a prom dress or a tux on the Outer Banks.
