Ah, prom. A tradition that determinedly made its way over from the US, prom has now become a staple of the british school and college experience. Usually held right at the end of the academic year, prom is the perfect time to kiss goodbye to all the best and worst parts of your school years, whether it’s a group of ride or die friends, the class clown you always thought was cute, or all memory of the awkward haircut you had in your second year.
We know that prom can really turn some alternative fashion lovers off. We get it – prom is notorious for playing host to sickly floor length ball gowns with puffy sleeves, people stood around the edge of a dance floor hoping for a Cinderella story and limos crammed full of classmates desperately trying to outdo each other with the darkest fake tan, the highest heels, and the most revealing dress. If you’re already feeling over it, take a look at our collection of alternative prom styles to revive your inspiration.
Prom should be a time to celebrate you and your achievements, to present the person you’ve become in all your glory. Make sure that you’re giving an impression that’s 100% authentic to you with an alternative prom dress. No matter what your favourite alternative style, there’s a way to work it into your formalwear wardrobe.
For our bad witches, we have a selection of gothic prom dresses from some of the best gothic brands at Attitude Clothing. Style the whole coven with black prom dresses by Restyle, Iron Fist and H&R London. Featuring luxuriously dark velvets, black organza skirting, and (okay you caught us) even the occasional puffed shoulder, our gothic prom dresses are guaranteed to make the right style statement for you.
We have prom dresses for our vintage vixens too! Take a trip back to the 1950s and check out our vintage prom dresses by Hell Bunny that feature cute rockabilly ribbons and vintage prints for you lovers of retro style. Another fabulous way to make a unique style statement at your prom, choosing a rockabilly influenced look allows you to stand out from the crowd without limiting your colour palette. Available in plus size options too, a Hell Bunny prom dress promises plenty of alternative fashion impact on the prom scene.
Of course, you’ll have to finish your alternative prom look off with the right pair of shoes. Check out some of the gothic shoes and rockabilly shoes at Attitude Clothing to find the perfect match for your rockin’ prom outfit.
