Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 is Greenery and we’re in love. Inspired by nature and the environment, green is a color that looks great on everyone. It’s also a somewhat unusual prom dress color – not your typical black or navy, so you’re sure to stand out at prom! Green is such a springy shade – and to be honest, we’re looking forward to any glimpse of spring right now, winters in New York can be so brutal!
Thinking of trying a green dress for prom or your next special event? It’s such a flattering and bold color! We have many different shades of green in Faviana dresses, here are some of our favorite green prom dresses and some suggestions as to how to complete the look!
Talk about trendy: Faviana Style S7524 is available in our emerald color and is a very stylish two piece dress! The bodice is a corset style featuring beading and mesh inserts, as well as a lace up back. The beading lines the top of the skirt to tie the whole dress together. We recommend going with silver shoes and accessories to accent the beading, such as some coordinating long dangly earrings. Wear your hair down, big and curly – checkout our glam hair tutorial! Get a a simple corsage of white flowers, and have your date wear a matching green tie or bow tie.
Sexy and Strappy
Faviana Style 9719 is available in a beautiful shade of hunter green. This comfortable jersey dress features nude tulle illusion insets and strappy details all around that hug your body and enhance your figure. This dress could be edgy or kept elegant depending on how you accessorize – go for a sleek pony and black pumps for an edgy look, or simple gold jewelry and soft curls in your hair for an appealing pretty look.
Faviana Style 7510 is the best of both worlds: Glam and pretty, but made of comfortable jersey fabric! Ideal for an hourglass, athletic or triangle body type, this classy dress features sequin lines designed to elegantly highlight your shape.
