Short Prom Dress

Can I Wear a Short Dress to Prom?

Are you considering wearing a short dress to your next prom? Despite popular belief, shorter prom dresses are becoming more popular than you may think. It’s a style that many girls feel more confident in and a trend that is widely known down south. Regardless of where you are, short prom dresses are making their appearance this season! Terani Couture has got hundreds of styles but today we’re sharing four of our favorites. 

If you’re looking for something sweet and classy, this is the dress for you. With a strapless cut you’ve got endless styling options. Go for an updo, some highlighter along your collarbones, or a bold statement necklace. This gown is a short tulle ball gown with gold sequined vines and flowers cascading along it. White is a super flattering color and one of the most popular for prom as it looks beautiful on a wide variety of skin tones. With gold metallic details, jewelry and shoes are a no brainer! Coordinate with your favorite gold pieces for the ultimate prom look. 

Looking for something a little sexy? Want to go out with a bang for your senior year? This short prom dress is calling your name! With a mix of sweetheart and plunging details you’ve got the perfect mix of innocence and elegance. Beads and embroidery make for the most beautiful bodice and pearl accents give this dress a bit of uniqueness. This gown comes in a variety of colors, so whichever season your dance may fall under, Terani Couture has got you covered!


A lot of girls prefer a style that isn’t strapless so they can break it down on the dance floor without having to worry about their dress falling. No shame there, we totally appreciate some good moves! This dress is perfect if you’re looking for something in between sleeves and sleeveless. This dress has got heavy embroidered detailing along  the bodice and a gorgeous skirt. This gown comes in white and red— two of the most popular colors for prom! At an affordable price, this one cannot be beat!

Two piece dresses have been having their moment for a few years now and they don’t show signs of leaving anytime soon. I wore a Terani Couture two-piece gown to my Senior prom and can honestly say I’ve never felt so beautiful in my life! There is an unexpected elegance about a two piece dress. It’s trendy without being something you’ll look back on in fifteen years and regret. It’s young, fun, and oh so beautiful, especially when it’s an ivory lace. This high, low skirt is perfect if you’re having mixed feelings about going the shorter route for prom!
