But first, try to focus on a particular style that you want to wear on your prom. So, here we bring you 4 statement necklines you can flaunt this prom. Take a look.


Do you have collar-bones to die for? Then, don’t hide it behind your attire. Sport an off-shoulder neckline, whether you have a petite frame or a broader structure. Off-shoulders have a sensual appeal, adding a sensuous interest to your look. This neckline complements all styles of dresses, right from A-line, Ballroom Gowns, to High-Low style, long, or short dresses. So, you can pick the length according to your convenience and rock this trend with utmost panache and confidence. Whether you want to opt for lace, chiffon, or tulle, and choose from a myriad variety of colors like shimmery gold, soothing mint, romantic blush pink, or ravishing coral red, off-shoulder necklines can give a new look to your mundane style.

Straight-line Strapless

Strapless, straight necklines are perfect for those who have a heavy bust-line. But these can also look stunning on people who have a moderate one. If you have sharply defined shoulders, long neck, and beautiful shoulder blades or upper back, or if you have long and slender arms, then it is high time you start flaunting your toned figure. You can choose to be elegant and classy in a strapless straight neckline cocktail gown with a side slit or you can have a flirtatious and fun appeal in a strapless, high and low dress. So, if you want to look sophisticated and have a minimalistic style statement this prom, this is a great choice for you.



Resembling the curves of a heart, this sweetheart neckline is what everyone is aping, right from the red carpet to school proms. Mostly styled on long cocktail gowns, these dresses look timeless on you and exude a regal appeal. Pick from a traditional, A-line bodice that opens into a flared floral lace designed skirt, a ruffled hemline mermaid gown with a fishtail in the end, or the classic ballroom style gown with a bust-flattering sweetheart neckline leading to an elegant and fairytale-like embroidered cascading down skirt.

Plunging V

The most versatile neckline that complements all body types, right from petite, apple, to an hourglass, the V-neck can look gorgeous on the prom night. If you have a smaller bust-line, you should stick to a less dramatic plunge and on the other hand, if you have a generous bust-line, reach out for a deeper plunge that will elongate your torso and balance the silhouette. Go for a classic red long cocktail gown with a sensuous thigh-high slit and a deep V plunging neckline or a floor-length lace gown with rose-gold, gold, or ivory sequins all over. You can also choose a beaded, long, evening dress with a ballroom-gown like flare from the waist, spaghetti thin straps, and a gorgeous V-neck to steal the show when you enter this year’s prom party.

So, what are you thinking? Quickly get started with your prom shopping spree now and decide which neckline would make you look absolutely drop-dead gorgeous.
