Formal Dress Stylist, Born & Based In MK

It is the perspective that counts when choosing the right prom dress for my valued clients. 
I am used to my patrons challenging me with things like “that is not really my style” and “I would not choose that colour” — but in the end, once the dress is fitted and they stand in front of the mirror — “you were right!” is what I hear the most often.


No matter who the prospective client is, we identify the best look. We have yet to see a body type or dress preference that is too hard!
We can accommodate the most challenging looks, we never say no!


Tips to consider:  Key factors such as your skin tone and hairstyle are often overlooked by some lesser Prom Dress shops.  

At MK Prom, we also take into consideration the theme of your prom, when narrowing down your prom dress choices.

The Trends

Prom dress trends change with each season as new styles hit the runway and make their way into the social scene, but the classic styles are timeless. If you are wondering which prom dress style comes out on top, there isn’t one answer.

Prom dresses are very diverse, and each design is unique. You can use this to your advantage by choosing a prom dress that incorporates current and classic prom trends.

Simplicity is a classic prom dress staple. Minimal decoration, floor-length hemlines, and solid colours are timeless elements, offering a blank canvas for you to be the artist.

Simple prom dresses tend to elicit an air of elegance with just one fabric choice and subtle, modest details.

Lace is the perfect example of a classic prom trend used in totally contemporary ways.

Not only has this soft, feminine fabric withstood the test of time, it’s back. A far cry from the traditional neck-to-hem lace looks, lace prom dresses now blend materials and design components for a truly exciting fashion statement. Today, lace adorns sheer mesh bodices, frames attention-grabbing cut outs, and lines daring racerbacks.


A two-piece prom dress might have a lace bodice with a satin skirt that offers an intriguing contrast.

Sleeves are just as classic, but rather than extending to the wrist, some current prom dresses get their flair from cute cap sleeves, romantic flutter sleeves, or seriously sultry off-the-shoulder sleeves.

Cold-shoulder sleeves highlight the arms with a little extra support and lend a distinct quality that makes a prom dress feel like one-of-a-kind.

Want something totally fresh and captivating? Sequin embellishments, rhinestones, and beads are taking the style world by storm, sparkling the whole way there. These glimmering details not only illuminate parts of the prom dress, but they also diminish the need for jewellery, and are stunning from every angle.

Prints are just as relevant for prom dresses, for they put individuality on the forefront. Floral patterns stun in bright shades, for an aggressively gorgeous contrast. Ombre is another on-point use of colours, putting the focus on certain sections of a prom dress with a modern twist.

When it comes to current prom dresses though, it’s also important to address the cut. Mermaid prom dresses are a fashion-forward way to exaggerate an hourglass figure, while high-low dresses are a trendy mashup of short and long prom dresses.

Open backs and cut outs are highly seductive elements that make any dress seem en vogue.

Current, classic, or somewhere in-between, the best prom dress depends upon the person donning it.

Everyone’s a little different, and prom dress styles aren’t stationary, so the perfect dress might incorporate a range of features. No matter what, choosing a prom dress should be fun, so feel free to get creative exploring all these trends.
