Want to flaunt great legs or your toned stomach that you slaved in the gym over; but worried about being too revealing? In one of this year’s hottest prom ensemble trends, you can have the best of both worlds! Sheer gowns and cocktail dresses are the perfect combination of sexiness and mystique.  Sheer prom ensembles have made their way into the collections of today’s most in demand designers. Sherri Hill’s designs have graced the runways of New York Fashion Week displaying variations of the sheer trend in sleeves, necklines and achieved a “faded” look; starting with full coverage and embellishments on the bodice and sheer gown bottom!

Jovani is another designer that has practically made sheer gowns a staple of their 2013 prom collections. Facebook fans of the brand continuously witness beautiful gowns that incorporate this element in the daily photographs on Jovani’s page.

Just a quick tip, keep in mind that sheer dresses are meant to accentuate what you feel are your best assets.  If you decide to incorporate this translucent style into your prom night be sure to keep it classy.  It is important to remember sheer fabric is strategically placed to tastefully display areas such as the stomach, legs, and back but are still meant cover what’s necessary. As long as you rock this trend in good taste and step into your prom night with confidence, there is no doubt that your night will be Sheer Perfection.
