It’s official: you're no longer a high school student. Whether you’re leaping with excitement or crying with nostalgia, you can be sure that your final night out will be one to remember. Purple prom dresses are at the top of our wish list, but how you wear them is up to you. Embrace the traditional in a floor-length gown, or celebrate the end of an era with knee-skimming skirts.
Embrace the fairytale with these purple prom dresses
Recreate the magic of far-off lands with ruffles and frills. The subtle, pastel hues of these purple dresses for prom are a great way to create a princess-inspired aesthetic. Pairing a classic purple prom dress with whimsical accessories or a floral blazer will give a pop of contrasting colour and make you feel like you’ve jumped right out of a picture book. If you’re not really the fairy-tale type, you can toughen up a lacy dress with a leather jacket or studded boots for a real good-girl-gone-bad look.
Purple prom dresses: a timeless choice
This range of evening dresses includes styles that span the decades. If you’re looking for Old Hollywood glamour go for a structured or off-the-shoulder style and pair it with a matching necklace and set of earrings. You'll feel like you're starring in a black and white film in no time. Skater dresses are contemporary classics: give yours an uber modern feel by cinching your waist with a white belt and adding a splash of bright lipstick - just remember to sip your drink through a straw to prevent smudges. Or pair one of these purple dresses for prom with some low-top trainers for a formal take on the sports luxe trend.
