Prom has to be one of the most important events on the calendar, at this time of the year, for the majority of teenage girls around the country. It’s your one chance to be able to get completley dressed up and wear a beautiful dress/outfit, have gorgeous hair and stunning makeup; making sure that everyone at school/college knows that you do actually wear something else other than school uniform. However, trying to find that perfect dress is anything but easy or affordable. So, I thought I would share with you 20 amazingly prom appropriate dresses, without the ‘wedding dress’ price tag.

The plunged sweet heart neckline adds a sense of maturity to your prom look, whilst also still staying young and feminine with it being floor length and a really on trend grey colour. This is one of the cheapest dresses, out of all the 20, however I think this one is the most traditionally prom appropriate and would look gorgeous with a bit of silver sparkle accessories.

It’s a gorgeous shade of cream, mixed with a delicate lace topping; allowing you to show a little bit of skin but still keeping it super classy and chic. It is slightly more on the pricey side, at £70, however this is definitely a classic piece and would be able to worn for so many events and with a variety of different textures and coloured accessories.
