Want to look Pretty in Pastel for Prom?: Faviana's Style Guide Pastel


Pastel is always a favorite, especially for springtime. If you love all things pastel, prom is the perfect springtime event to show off the color of your choice. Pastel dresses are simple, elegant, and not too flashy. You’re sure to feel like a princess on prom night with the perfect dress. Whether you want a lilac prom dress or a light blue prom dress, pastel won’t disappoint. 

There may be a lot of dresses to choose from, but it’s easy to find something amazing in Faviana’s selection of prom dresses. This guide will help you decide what color, style, and accessories to look pretty in pastel. 

Pick a Pastel

Pastel dresses make for a sweet and beautiful prom look and will make you pop in pictures.

While pastel narrows down your color choices, there is still a lot to choose from. There are pink, yellow, blue, and purple shades like lavender or lilac – just to name a few. Picking a color can be tough when there are so many pretty shades. Our advice is to go with a color that you love and that looks great with your skin tone. If you’re stuck, we listed suggestions for each skin tone. No matter what color you choose, we know it will look great!

If you have lighter skin tones, cool shades won’t blend too much into the skin and wash you out. Think baby blue or a purple prom dress like lilac. Faviana style S10814 is a gorgeous lace dress that comes in a soft cloud blue color. Its strapless, heart-shaped neckline with corset boning makes this dress extremely elegant. This dress also comes in Hot Pink, Forest Green, and Navy if you're not ready to wear pastels just yet.

For medium skin tones, pinks, yellows, and mint green pair well. Warm colors pair best with warm skin tones even in pastels. The Faviana style 11003 is a beautiful dress with pastel yellow dress but also comes in non-pastel colors like Fuchsia and Royal Blue. This dress is covered in lace and beading which adds the perfect amount of texture and dimension. 

Darker skin tones can absolutely rock pastel shades. Light yellow, aqua, lilac, or cream are great choices. The Faviana style S10633 is a beautiful lace dress that comes in a light pink that is soft and elegant. This dress has a beaded V-neck with an open back. Some other pastels this gown comes in is light blue, lilac, and light yellow.

Choose the right style

Some beautiful dress styles that will be eye-catching at prom!

Once you have the perfect color, it’s time to find the right style for you. Many prom dresses are long but there’s nothing wrong with going for a short dress if that’s your style. The important thing is that you find a dress that embraces your style and will make you feel beautiful at prom!

V-neck dresses are popular and simple. There are also a lot of V-neck options. Some have lace appliques like the Faviana style S10640 which comes in a beautiful sage green. If you want something similar, the Faviana Style 11004  also features applique but has a strapless neckline and a mermaid skirt. You can find it in ice blue, mint, and ivory.

Lastly, you may want to try something a little different. This pastel dress has sequin flower detailing all over it. The Faviana style 11000 is one of our favorite choices to stand out for spring prom and feel like a princess. 

Accessorize Your Look

When finishing up your pastel look, you want to have the best accents to complement your dress. Basics like black or white will always pair well. Think neutral shades when shopping for shoes. Pastel colors also go well with simple gold jewelry. You don’t have to overdo it. With pastel, keeping it clean and simple will make all the difference.
