Five Prom Dresses Under $100

Prom is coming up sometime in the near future and ever since I was little, I've been dreaming about my perfect prom.  And though I'm not really that close to my prom, I figured that I might as well plan some prom outfits for you guys.  Enjoy!

Dresses can be a bit pricey, so today, I decided to make a budget-friendly post, so all the dresses are under $100.  I'll be doing a mini series on prom with dresses for all price ranges, so be on a lookout for that if you would like (you should).  I tried to accommodate all different styles, obviously not all, but definitely more than one, and I hope you'll like it!

Sleek Satin

The whole H&M Conscious collection is pretty amazing and I fell in love with this blush satin dress.  I know it looks a bit peach in this picture, but on the model it looked a bit more pink.  Most of the oufit is in the same colour family, so I decided to add a pop of colour with the mint clutch.  Some of these items might be a bit pricey for what you're looking for, so feel free, actual, please do alter this outfit a bit to better fit your style.  These are just some ideas.  I think that loosely curled hair put in a half up half down hair do would look really nice with this ensemble.

Pop of Mint

This is kind of a classic dress, so I decided to add, once again, a pop of colour.  If you prefer to make to go the classic route, a gold and pearl or gold and silver statement necklace would look really nice.  Maybe even a choker.

Modern Classic

The way I like to describe this outfit, or at least the inspiration for it, is old Hollywood meets 21st century fashion.  It's what I kind of visualise when I think of old Hollywood except with a really modern twist to... everything.  Retro curls pulled back with the Etsy hair pin would be how I would wear my hair.

Hologram Love

This is an edgier dress and what comes to mind when I see it is a black swan.  The dress is just really cool and edgy, but still kind of innocent which I really like.  I focused on adding lots of texture and jewellery and accessories with really cool details to top off this outfit.

Chalk Pastel-inspired

This outfit is inspired by something that Elle Fanning wore to an event recently ( even though it might not seem like it.  You could switch out the beaded headband for a white one like the one Elle wore.  I really love all the pastels and blush colours in this ensemble and I hope you do, too.

So that's it!  I tried to pick the most budget-friendly but still stylish and unique (I broke my own rules a few times though, sorry!).  I hope you liked this and thanks for reading!  Let me know (if you want) which outfit was your favourite.
