PROM - the time so many high school movies have prepared you for. You’ve finished all your exams, you’re all set to get all dolled up and have the best night of your life. So here’s to a night of photographs, dancing and FUN! No pressure.
The prom scene is the best part of so many movies, mainly because of the outfits! Stand out, combine studded belts with pastel hues and patent leather with frills and chiffon. Go vintage for prom, it eliminates dress anxiety (cutting down your odds of running into a duplicate of your dress by approximately 1 million percent), it’s considerably cheaper than buying brand new from a specialist shop, and don’t forget, vintage items can also be tailored to give you the perfect fit!
Here are some of our favorite prom fashion moments from the silver screen:
1) Pretty in Pink
When you think of 80s fashion, nothing is more iconic than Molly Ringwald's dress in Pretty in Pink! (Made from two Vintage prom dresses mashed together)
2) 10 Things I Hate About You
Although the last thing Kat wanted to do was go to prom, she still SLAYED it in this classic 90s spaghetti strap number.
3) Jaw Breaker
Courtney doesn’t have the best prom night after confessing to Killing Liz, but what better way to do it than in a beautiful sheer gown right after being crowned prom queen?!
Take inspiration from Footloose and embrace a full length light chiffon. Opt for pastel pink for a universally flattering colour that will get you in the mood to party.
5) American Pie
For all the guys out there, frills aren’t only reserved for the girls! Add a little va-va-voom & win over the ladies with a vintage prom suit.

Team a pretty prom dress with a leather biker jacket. It’s all about the contrast. Accessorize with fishnets, DM’s and the more lace, the better!
