Freshing and Clean White Prom Dresses

White prom dresses were definitely a big trend for the Oscar this year. Stars from the winner Octavia Spencer, Shailene Woodley and Giuliana Rancic, all were stunning to showcase an unltra-glam look by wearing white prom dresses. And our picks for best dressed are the Oscar first-timer Milla Jovovich and fashion darling Rooney Mara. Milla showed off her softer side by wearing a white prom gown with all-over silver paillette detail while fashion Rooney chose a elegant white mermaid gown that featured a plunging neckline and long train. Both of them walked the red carpet with structured and clear looks.


Getting the Look

Inspired by the clean looks, we found a mermaid prom dress that works a similar dynamic. To stay in line with the elegant style of the dress, complete the look with simple accessoises such as a glittering clutch and some simple, yet elegant jewelry.

Tina Fey, Angelina Jolie, Rose Byrne

Classic but Edgy Black Prom Dresses

There is nothing revolutionary about black prom dresses, but Angelina Jolie's Versace prom gown made it one of the hottest Oscar night topics. Besides, Tina Fey totally broke her basic rule for wearing simple and elegant. Instead, the black gown she chose fits her like a glove, and her hair and accessories make it one of her best looks ever. And Rose Byrne's sequined black dress was also impressive.

In addition, we love Jessica Chastain's contrasting black and gold prom dress. The ornate detailing is fantastic and exquisite. While George Clooney's date, Stacy Keibler was eye-catching by her rose detailing gold dress.

A Brief Look into Petite Wedding Dresses


No doubt, every bride-to-be should be aware of her body type before going shopping wedding dresses. Although as much as she might fall in love with those intricate designs and elegant styles, specific body type is a vital element to focus on while petite girls are one of the typical example. However, there are still many modern options for these brides. For this short article, Dressilyme would be sharing some of stunning petite wedding dresses and tips on how to look fabulous for petite brides.


A-line Petite Wedding Dresses

As basic, petite brides should try to get out of ball gown and mermaid wedding dresses since the bell-like skirt or dropped waist pattern can overwhelm the tiny frames and make the bride end up looking clumsy. On the contrary, A-line wedding dresses are the most flattering to petite girls. Simple embellishments such as layers are a great way to add some detail and excitement to an ordinary wedding dress. This dress is pretty elegant, made up of some satin and organza layers. All you need to do is to finish the look with a pair of stilettos.


Sheath Petite Wedding Dresses

Except for A-line styles, petite wedding dresses are a category with wide range of options. The sheath wedding gown is another good choice which is characterized by slim profile that closely follows the curves of the body. It is perfect for petite girls for adding length to the whole effect. Going beyond ordinary, this wedding dress is sophisticated made up of lace pattern. In addition, the spaghetti straps can effortless create feminine beauty.


Strapless Petite Wedding Dresses

Even though sparkling details are not recommended to petite wedding dresses, a small surface beads and gems are terrific for brides to shine through. And what better way to show off your shoulder? The strapless wedding gown already draws lots of focus to avoid too many eyes on your height. Other than that, no waist line also good to create impression of lean and long figure.

Tips for Choosing Petite Wedding Dresses

Considering that statue height of petite bride is a factor limiting selection of wedding dresses, below tips will be helpful.
1. Stay away from dropped waist and mermaid styles which are mostly for tall brides. Go for no waist line or empire waist.
2. Choose uncovered neckline with shoulders at sight, sleeveless, strapless. But don’t exaggerate into making this the focal point since you are the petite bride.
3. Avoid too puffy, bouffant skirts such as ruffled or tulle patterns as they will make you look like a Christmas tree, short and full.
4. Exclude or limit large space of embellishments.
