The year of 2011 is shaping up to be the year of the high low prom dress. Suddenly this short yet long, long yet short ultra style is showing up everywhere from the catwalk to the sidewalk, and its popularity continues to grow. Prom is such a special event in your life and sometimes it feels difficult if not impossible to choose between a short and a long dress, and that no doubt accounts for the newfound popularity of the high low dress. The high low dress doesn't force you to choose. You get the best of both worlds, a glamorous prom wearing a dress that is short in the front yet long and trailing in the back, falling to somewhere between the middle of the lower leg to past you feet onto the floor like a true train. The best part of all about high low prom dresses is that you can dance with ease without worrying about tripping yourself up on a long dress, because the front is short and open and gives you all the leg room you need to really shine on the dance floor. Learn more about the most stylish high low prom dresses for 2011 and select the style that is right for your personal fashion preferences.
The Bold Print High Low Prom Dress
Bold prints have accompanied the high low dress back in fashion, and they are out in force this spring just in time for prom. From animal prints to blue sky and clouds, under-dress stripes and lush abstract artistic designs, bold prints make the unmistakable statement that you are here to be seen, noticed, and celebrated.
The Ruffled High Low Prom Dress
The high low prom dress can be as classic or adventurous as you want it to be. For the princess within, try a pastel high low prom dress with thick, ruched ruffles cascading down either side of the front v-split and around the back, forming a thick royal train behind you. For the inner flamenco dancer, choose instead a flared, ruffle-esque v-split that has you pegged as the next contestant on America's favorite dance reality show.
