    1. Cinderella prom dresses - Everyone's favourite. These stunning ball gowns with their full tulle skirts make the wearer feel and look like a Princess. These prom dresses are mostly strapless but there are a few designers this season that have introduced halter designs. Each dress should come with detachable straps.

    2. The Victorian Bustle Prom Dresses - These 'sort after' prom dresses are not so fairytale in appearance as the Cinderella prom dresses but they are as big. They give more of a grown up look to the wearer and can be very flattering because of their dropped waist and full shirt which starts from the hips rather than the waist.

    3. Short Prom Dresses - The demand for short hemlines is growing and with more and more girls preferring this style the designers have been creating more quirky and glamorous versions with many features from the longer dresses. When choosing this style remember your legs will be on show so make sure your comfortable with this before opting for this style.

    4. Mermaid Prom Dresses - These styles of prom dresses take glamour to a new level with their figure hugging bodices and flared out skirts. They will exaggerate every curve making you feel ultra feminine. If you are confident with your figure and want to show it off then this is the style for you. These dresses can be strapless as well which gives you the opportunity to show off your shoulders.

    5. Sexy Prom Dresses - These dresses are usually made from jersey which will emphasize every curve. Jersey is very clingy and heavy, which makes it hang perfectly but it will show certain undergarment lines. If you choose this style of prom dress think carefully about buying some seam free underwear it will be worth it. As far as embellishments are concerned, these dresses can be covered in sequins and the strap details can be heavily gemmed.

    6. Hi-low Prom Dresses - Celebrity's are loving these dresses because the hemline is short at the front and the back finishes in a long glamorous train combining trendy and Hollywood glamor at the same time. If you choose this style, splash out on a pair of metallic chic heeled sandals. These sandals will be on display and will complete your whole look.

    7. Empire Prom Dresses - These dresses flatter any body type because of their raised waist line. The empire dresses have a fitted bust and then the fabric flows away from the body giving you an excellent silhouette. The fabric used in these dresses is normally satin which is more forgiving than the clingy jersey. Some design versions of these dresses can include some sexy long trains.
