Bright Colors and Long Dresses Are This Year's Prom Trends

When it comes to prom, it's all about the dress. Yes, even above the date! While some prom goers are aiming to make a statement in their fashion-forward frocks, others are hoping to achieve a timeless look they'll still love years from now. No matter the final outcome, there are three things to consider when finding the perfect prom dress - color, texture and length. The industry experts at Donna Morgan share the hottest prom trends sure to be found in every high school gymnasium this year.

When it comes to creating a sophisticated look, girls are opting for champagne toned gowns or going classic with a black and white theme. These are sophisticated choices that will create a timeless look sure to stun. Prom goers looking to spice up the night are most commonly choosing rich jewel tones, with shades of blue and green as a close second. Still holding strong as the most popular prom dress is pink. From blush to fuchsia, pink is here to stay.

Another hot trend you'll see at 2014 proms all over the country? Texture! And even more specifically - lace. Lace has gained popularity in all aspects of fashion, so it's only natural the sweet and romantic designs will be making a splash at high school's biggest night. If not in lace, girls are likely be in chiffon or tulle. These fabrics tend to make for more simple silhouettes, allowing fashionistas to dress them up with accessories. With the increased popularity of statement jewelry, girls are choosing simpler styles to complement their accessories.

After the color and texture have been chosen comes the next big decision - long and flowy? Or short and sassy? While short dresses have been very popular the past few years, the trend is shifting back to long gowns. Flowy dresses are also essential (versus tight fighting sequin dresses), as they allow girls to be comfortable on the dance floor all night. Donna Morgan CEO Kathleen McFeeters says, "When it comes to picking the perfect prom dress, it is important that comfort is also factor. That is why this year, our dress collection has various options for every girl to make their dress not only look fabulous but feel it too!"

Whether you are dressed in a long, romantic dress or keeping it short and chic, prom fashion this year will not disappoint! 2014 is all about glamorous fabrics and shades, making proms all over the country a night to remember.
