FASHION | #PromPredictions

*Post written in association with New Look but, as always, all views are my own!* If there's one thing I quite regret it's not going to my school's prom. Don't get me wrong, me and my friends had a fab time but part of me really wishes we'd gone all out in amazing dresses. I'm not even the girliest girl but even I can see there's something dreamy about prom night!

As you can see in the past dresses have been all long and flowy but personally as pretty as they are there's no way I'd be able to have a stress-free night wearing one...we all know I'd be tripping all over the place! If I had my prom night this year I'd 100% be going for something short and sassy. New Look have a gorgeous range, my particular favourites are the monochrome dresses (which is set to be a huge trend this year!)

I think that these days we're a lot savvier when it comes to shopping, I don't think people will be spending a fortune on prom dresses they'll only wear once...they'll be going for affordable options that can be worn again and again! I think my favourite here is the first one...I'm obsessed with strappy necklines!

What did you wear to prom? Or what are you planning to wear?

  3. I think I would go simple but with a fuller skirt a little like the stripe dress above! Ohhh wish I had an event to go to so I could dress up! X great post

  4. Love how you sourced photos from the red carpet... fashion always trickles down that way. I love that high neck bodycon dress.

  7. If I had a formal to goto I would go for old glamour. I love the retro style dresses. :)/Madison

  9. For sure! I totally think that prom dresses will be a lot simpler. Of course there will be the traditional people but more people will be savvy with it. My prom dress was $13.00! I'm such a trend setter haha. ;)

  10. I love the one on the left! Oh and I wore a long red dress (wouldn't to that again!)

  11. I never went to prom either but I love prom dresses. I love the collection of the new look dresses, especially the middle one! x

  12. The black and white dress you picked is lovely. I have to admit when I went to my prom I wore a bit of a princess dress as I thought it'd be the only opportunity I'd get to wear one but looking back on it now I wish I'd worn something like this, something a bit more me :) xx

  13. I didn't go to our prom, I was never really into school discos or dances so didn't go!
