Can you believe that prom season is on it’s way? My school never held a prom so I’ve not had the experience of getting glammed up for what should be the best night of my school life, but I’ve seen so many TV shows, films and even have a lot of friends who have attended prom all around the world and so I live it vicariously through them all! Despite not attending my own, I know very well that finding prom dresses can be a major task to tackle! I also know that they can be pretty expensive, but a beautiful dress doesn’t always need a big price tag. Here are 9 pretty prom dresses that won’t break the bank.
Back Lace Bardot Skater Dress
A little black dress is perfect for pretty much any occasion! This is such a simple yet elegant dress and pretty easy to dance the night away in! I really the detailing! Pairing this with a cute clutch and some sandals (or flats if that’s more your style!) would look stunning and a bold red lip.

Maya Cold Shoulder Sequin Detail Tulle Maxi Dress With Ruffle Detail
This is such a cute dress! I really love this colour and the sparkly detail is so pretty. This is a real pretty princess dress perfect for living out your Disney princess dream for the night. I’d rock this with a gorgeous updo maybe with a flower pin which matches with the corsage and droplet earrings.

Long Sequin V-Neck Open Back Dress
You’ll be sure to catch people’s eye in this dazzling dress! Channel your inner Jessica Rabbit and watch as you sparkle under the dance floor lights! Teaming this up with silver or gold would give you a million dollar look – without even a fraction of the price!
Available from PromGirl for $89.00
Sheer Sequin Design Bodice Long Prom Dress
For a more light-weight I think this is perfect! I love the mesh detailing and is ideal for you to base your accessories – particularly jewellery – on. Strappy shoes are perfect for showing off through the side slit, too.
Available from Simply Dresses for $99.00
B Darlin Trendy Plus Size High-Low Dress
This royal blue dress is simply stunning! I’d wear a high low dress if I couldn’t decide between a long or short dress. Also great for showing off a gorgeous pair of shoes. Black or silver accessories would really bring this outfit together and the neckline is calling out for a statement necklace of sorts.
Available from Macy’s for $99.00
Premium Corsage Strap Prom Dress
I love the colour of this dress, it’s so beautiful! The one strap covered in flowers is super pretty, especially if you don’t have a corsage or have one which can match. I love a good sweetheart neckline, especially if you want to highlight that part of your body (which for me is a definite yes!) and is a great place again for a statement necklace.
Available from ASOS on sale for $30.50 down from $103.00
Speechless Short Sleeve Party Dress
I love this red dress! To me it says “red-carpet ready” and has classic Hollywood darling written all over it. It’s simple but still eye catching and would go well with some bold jewellery, such as multiple bracelets or a big necklace.
Available from JC Penney on sale for $83.40 down from $139.00
Special Occasion Pink Floral One Shoulder Chiffon Gown
This is such a gorgeous and summery dress! I love floral patterns and I think this is great for those of you who live in hotter areas to stay quite cool, especially for outside photos. Going back to the corsage, it’d be great to find one which matches the flowers’ colours on the dress and match your accessories to those tones, too.
Available from Torrid on sale for $75.97 down from $128.00
Hell Bunny Aberdeen 50s Dress
For all my alternative girls! If you’re not looking for a dainty, girlie dress then here’s one I think would look amazing. I love plaid pattern and this retro 50’s style is just gorgeous. You could team this up with chunky wedges, sneakers or combat boots and a cute choker! It’s a great look that says “I’ve made good effort here, but I’m more of a punk princess!” A dark makeup look would also work really well here, you can get quite dramatic with it.
