32 Stand-Out Prom 2014 Dresses

From Regal Cartoon Gowns to Fairytale Formalwear

— April 24, 2014 — Fashion
Students, Prom 2014 is fast-approaching, and if you have been on the hunt for a stand-out dress, but have yet to find it, here is a list that is sure to help you. In this list, there is a dress for everyone -- even for those who are "anti-prom."

Online retailer Nasty Gal recently debuted its Anti-Prom collection for girls who dislike cliche prom fashions. The styles are edgy, and boast short hemlines and bra-baring necklines. However, for individuals who want to look elegant, but still make a lasting impression, a dress from the Simona Semen SS14 collection would be the best choice. The dresses are dainty, yet boast intricate floral patterns and lace textures. And if you are quirky and want to reveal your inner-geek, WeLoveFine sells dresses inspired by Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time.
