Topshop for Prom?

I personally feel that now is the time to deal with the mighty challenge of the prom dress. It’s so difficult to get ‘the one’ as there is so much choice: colour, length, shape, fabric. Considering it’s an organised school event you can’t look trampy.. aaand it’s the last time you see your school year as a whole, so you want to make a lasting impression (especially if you’re leaving). So: what is whorey, and what is wowzas, time to find out…

Topshop have released their new collection of dresses ‘Dress Up Topshop’ – I warn you, some of these dresses are disgusting. To be honest, I was pretty surprised Topshop could do that. It seems they may have really tried to design a prom dress but only managed to create a salmon coloured monstrosity. 

I’m not even going to provide you with the horror that is the yellow version.

But to be honest there is no point me talking about the horrible dresses. They do have some really stunning ones, but remember, some proms are more up scale than others so make sure you cater to your own needs.

This ‘petrol’ coloured vintage dress is perfect for prom. It can be dressed up or down, depending on what your prom evening is like. The swishy-ness of the skirt, the sparkly beading and ruffled bodice add up to make a really gorgeous dress.


This next dress is a bit more prommy. The puffy, tulle skirt and cute black bow waist detail put together with the black and blue spotty pattern make for a very cutesy prom dress. Or if you’re not feeling for the blue, try the slightly safer, ivory. I personally much prefer the ivory coloured version as for me, blue just looks a bit odd.

This dress isn’t from the Dress Up Topshop range but I think it could be a really spectacular alternative prom dress. The shiny, goldy shimmer on the dress turns the dress from a bit dull to stunning. Also, the long and short contrast and ruffles will definitely ensure no one will look quite as hot as you.

This dress can only be worn if you don’t mind getting a bit of eyeing up and general perving – or in some cases mocking – from some male teachers. Seeing as it is tight, sheer and sparkly, best to make sure you’re feeling confident. Anyways, the sparkly tree thing going up the side is really gorrggg, and is just the right amount of sparkliness to liven up the plain black main body of the dress.

When it came to prom dresses, I really though Topshop would come up amazingly with some stunninggg dresses, but so far I have been slightly dissapointed. I think the best option, if you are hoping to get something from Topshop, is to hit the bigger stores; Oxford Street and Knightsbridge. Oxford Street in particular will probably be your best bet, the concessions downstairs next to the shoe section should provide you with above and beyond than six items for the dressing room…

Here’s the best of the rest from Topshop…

Enjoy! O x.x
