Hinsdale Central’s Prom is on Saturday, April 13 at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. With the new season, many different dress styles are becoming more and more popular.

Ruffled Tiered Dress

Many students are going for the ruffled tiered look this year.

“I’ve always loved the ruffle tiered look,” said Caroline Matricaria, senior. “I saw someone on Tik Tok who had a similar dress [to mine], and [I] loved it.”

This style is elegant, with the layers and shimmery borders bringing extravagance to the dress.

“I like this dress because it’s very different and unique,” Matricaria said.

Off-the-Shoulder Dress

The off-the-shoulder look is a timeless trend, and it gives off a very fancy look to one’s outfit.

I always wanted to wear a floral dress with this style, and I love light spring and summer colors,” said Ella Simmons, senior.

This style comes with several patterns, and one can wear it plain, with florals, or with sequins.

People have been wearing corsets throughout almost all of history. It’s a great style to look sophisticated and extraordinary while giving a beautiful grace of femininity.

“I love the corset style because I think it beautifies the gown in a perfect way,” said Jocelyn Ddenhoff, senior.

A corset can be styled with jewelry, and it can also give the dress a very striking look with the fabric falling below the corset.

Floral Dress

Floral dresses are here to stay for the summer, creating a beautiful look with floral patterns and vibrant colors.

As well, floral dresses tie into the concept of Prom perfectly, symbolizing elegance and the new season.

“I love the color pink, and I think it perfectly represents spring and what prom means,” said Campbell Jones, senior.
