For Prom 2011, the fabulous factor centers on high-voltage dresses guaranteed to pump up the fashion volume.

It’s the best of times; it can be the most stressful of times—Prom season! Finding that perfect dress is always the highlight of shopping for Prom night. But it can be tricky staying up-to-date with the hottest Prom dress trends, even for fashionistas in the fast lane.

“For Prom 2011, the fabulous factor centers on high-voltage dresses guaranteed to pump up the fashion volume,” says Phyllis Brasch Librach, president and founder of Sydney’s Closet®, a niche fashion company that designs, manufactures and sells plus-size Prom dresses. “Striking one-shoulder silhouettes and traffic-stopping prints are in big demand.”

This year, even Cinderella gets a fashion jolt, says Librach. “Look for classic ball gowns to get an instant update with multi-colored layers of tulle over eye-popping print skirts.”

To make shopping for a prom dress less stressful, the fashion pros at Sydney’s Closet share these top 10 dress trends for Prom 2011:

1. A Rosette-y Disposition: fabric twirled into floral rosettes adds a trendy, feminine accent for a prom dress blooming with style.

2. Prints Charm-ing: capture your Prom date’s heart wearing multi-color tulle layered over novel graphics or muted florals for an up-to-the-minute Princess look.

3. Easy Breezy: free-moving chiffon or satin dresses in relaxed silhouettes exude a soft, graceful look.

4. One-Shoulder Starlet: make a dramatic entrance wearing this Hollywood design right from the red carpet.

5. Shady Lady: eye-catching ombré fabric subtly progresses from light to dark for a super-sophisticated impact.

6. Untamed Glamour: tiger and zebra stripes, leopard and giraffe spots – oh my! Animal prints show off your wild side before you even hit the dance floor.

7. Cut it Short: whether it’s a poufy skirt or a flowing baby doll, hems above the knee show off your sexy legs and hike up the fun factor.

8. Candy Land Colors: bubblegum, grape, lemon drop: great fashion taste comes in delicious colors. Yum!

9. Painted Lady: splashy patterns fresh off a painter’s canvas create a Prom dress that doubles as a work of art.

10. Flower Power: buds bloom in all sizes and vivid colors for that very girly look perfect for Spring!
