Green Dresses for Prom 2013

Updated on June 10, 2013

Prom 2013 Green Dresses

Prom is coming up and green may be just the right color for your dream dress. With all different shades and styles, there is a green dress for every shape and size. If you are just beginning your dress search or have been finding disappointment in store after store, this lens may be just what you need. Here you can find some of the hottest picks for prom 2013 and a few reasons on just what makes them so fabulous. Prom starts with the perfect dress so let's get started!

Green High Split Strapless Evening Dress - Long. Elegant. Strapless and a Touch of Sexy

This is one of my absolute FAVORITE in dresses. I love the high split which takes it from serious evening dress to sexy and playful. The beading on the bodice and the pleated design lend it a touch of elegance. On a side note, I am also a huge fan of the built-in bra on this dress. Not having to deal with the annoyance of a strapless bra on a night where dancing is key makes for such a relief!

 

Why choose a dress in green?

The Answer

Green is a color which stands for something precious, it's the color of life. Think of spring and the many ways where you see green appearing everywhere. If you live in a place where I do, green is the first color to fight it's way through the dead browns of winter. When I think of spring I do not see light pastels of yellow and pink. I see the cool light greens of a new beginning and the darkening greens indicating summer is on the brink of appearing.

The second reason for choosing a dress in green is the great variety in the color. Green comes in mint, in sea-green, deep olive, and tantalizing green-blue. Unlike the springy light pastels, green is a color which has many shades to compliment a variety of skin tones. I am personally a fan of a more greenish-blue as it brings out my blue eyes and does not wash out my fair skin like pastels do. So do not think crayola green is the only color out there. In this lens you will see far more than 'crayola green' in different materials and styles galore!

Strapless Beaded Short Dress - Sassy Meets Sweet

Sassy, short, and sweet all describe this strapless dress. I love the way it's tulle skirt flairs out and how the mint color makes it pop!

 

Why buy through Amazon?

Isn't it easier in store?

When my sister got married and a good friend of mine, they purchased their wedding dresses online. The reason? My sister found her dress to be over a THOUSAND dollars cheaper than in the store where she found it. The difference was huge and she also discovered if she had purchased through the bridal store, any altering done there would run in the hundreds of dollars. By buying online she was able to take it to any seamstress and saved herself hundreds.

My friend looked through dresses online after having no luck in store. Right away she found her dream dress and it arrived fitting her to a T. I was amazed as all the in-store options would have needed a great deal of alteration for her petite, slim figure. Not to mention she also saved hundreds of dollars and got her dress very quickly.

They both bought online for the most important dress of their lives and were all the happier for it. So why not try buying online through Amazon? They are a trusted seller company and dedicated to keeping customers happy. So save money and give it a try!

I adore cocktail length dresses and this one in taffeta is no exception. With delicate beading on the waist and a pleated top, it provides just the right touch to such a beautiful shape in olive green.

Some people just cannot get enough of ruffle dresses so I have included this pretty long mesh ruffle dress. The waistline is lined with clear gems and the fresh mint color gives off the perfect hint of spring!

I love one-shoulder dresses and this one is simply adorable. Sexy satin, layered in mesh, and a beaded strap make it stand-out. One of the best parts is you can actually dance in this dress without worrying about tripping over a long complicated train!

 

Strapless Beaded and Green Dress - When you want something between mini and floor-length

Not everyone fits in the ball-gown, mini, or floor-length idea for a dress. There are times when you just want something in-between the extremes. This strapless dress is it. With delicate beading, a strapless neckline, and ruffles (but not to many) it's knee-length is sure to be just the right fit.

This beaded dress is extremely intricate with its hand-embroidered leaf appliques and lace overlay. I really like the crescent shaped neckline and the fully beaded bust but I also really love that the company provides sew-on straps meaning it does not have to be strapless!

This mini dress is a little on the more daring side for prom. I could see myself wearing it for a summer night out meaning it's something you can wear after prom (always a good thing). If you want to go with a sexy, skin-baring look then this mini is perfect for your prom!

      Good idea to choose the green, it's nice and somewhat unusual and it's also the Pantone color of the year 2013. Nice lens.
