Picking a dress to wear to prom or graduation is probably one of the hardest decisions for a teen to make. If you’re someone that still hasn’t found your perfect prom dress, then you’re in luck. We’ve narrowed it down to the best dress trends of this season to make your decision a little bit easier! Not only are these dresses prom-ready, you can also wear them to summer weddings and special occasions.

Romantic Maxi Dresses

In the era of minimalistic looks, the romantic maxi dress includes floral embroidery, lightweight fabric, and a modern edge. These dresses have been spotted on celebrities such as Selena Gomez and Olivia Palermo.
Oliva Palermo was spotted in a one-of-a-kind Valentino silk sequin embellished gown at a Masquerade Ball in New York. This cream silk gown is both elegant and minimalistic.

Selena Gomez showed off her pale pink dress designed by Coach at the 2017 Met Gala. This dress with a slit shows off a modern feminine look. The front long slit is a trend that we’ve witnessed this season and we are absolutely in love with the touch of edge it gives to these dresses.
