To gain a deeper understanding of black attire for prom, let’s delve into the specifics

History of Black for Prom

For those, who aren’t so convinced, let’s go all the way back to the origins of black to explain why this trend is on the verge of taking center stage.

Girls have been wearing black since the 1950s when Rockabillys (followers of one of the earliest forms of Rock and Roll), shocked parents and teachers nationwide by showing up to dances in tight black gowns.

The early days of prom (1940s-50s) were characterized by pastel gowns, delicate lace, and soft silhouettes. Anything feminine and delicate ruled the day. Black was certainly a shock to the system, and not really seen again until the 1980s.

The 60s and early 70s were largely characterized by hippy flower power. Long bohemian dresses, pastel colors, and floral prints were the obvious trend, without much differentiation.

And finally in the 1980s, in an age where anything goes, and punk was the music of choice, black made its first real comeback. Tight gowns in synthetic materials ruled the day.

1990s-2000s ushered in a wave of brightly-colored prom attires. During this era, black became a popular choice for prom attire, symbolizing elegance and a departure from traditional pastels.
