Prom is one of the biggest nights for teens to feel sophisticated, beautiful, and extra-fashionable.

When looking for that special dress with your teenage daughter, you'll have a more successful shopping trip (and fewer disagreements) if you're in the teen fashion know.

Here, with guidance from Liz Wilson, one of our top Long Island teen consultants, are some of the hottest prom and gala dress trends for spring and summer:

The Grecian look-- Many beautiful dresses have been inspired by Greek designs. Dressing as the goddess of the party is definitely the thing to do, this year.

Bright, vibrant colors and prints-- Vivacious purples, yellows, pinks, and blues are all hot. You will also see dresses in all prints, including animal, abstract, and floral prints too.

Glamorous extras--You'll see dresses with fun additions, such as cascading ruffle adornments, embellished bodices, bows, ribbons, sequins, and beads.

All of the dresses shown here demonstrate the top prom gown styles. Even better, these dresses are all priced at under $200! A couple are even under $100. Check them out now!
