Prom season is upon us. I have fond memories of all three prom nights I went to, particularly of my last prom where my sister and I got to wear a long evening dresses, and I had mine in my favorite color – purple. The previous prom night’s I had danced the night away in short dresses, but for the last prom I was going to attend I felt that a long evening dress was the most appropriate fit for me - as I was no longer in high school, an adult, out navigating this thing called life.
Long dresses exude elegance and have you ever noticed when you move in them, it looks so seamless. That is part of the reason I love long dresses, but the best part for me is how much taller they make me look and feel. I would say that may best combination are black evening dresses, as they make me appear slimmer and taller.
Red evening dresses are also on my list of favorites as the color red as it exudes sexiness and boldness. The great part about prom, apart from the dancing and food, is the fact that you can push the fashion boundaries with a creative dress, be it in design or color. So, why don’t you make it a bold color, like red? In my head, I am channeling Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren and Jennifer Laurence in Calvin Klein.
You may even decide to switch it up a bit by selecting evening maxi dresses, which are also very flattering for plus size women. Here are a selection of evening dresses UK and plus size evening dresses that you can peruse through below for some more ideas.
