From sparkly sequins to sleek satin, embrace your inner dancing queen in these REVOLVE prom dresses.
1. Bronx and Banco Farah One-Shoulder Gown
Walk into prom looking like a prize in the Bronx and Banco Farah One-Shoulder Gown. An upgrade from your typical, all-over sequin dress, this gown adds texture by layering paillette sequins of different sizes for a look that stands out in the best way possible (because why fit in?).
If sequins aren’t so much your thing but you still want to go for the gold, the Bronx and Banco Florence Strapless Gown is a stunning metallic number that gives nod to the 70s.
Style it with:
- Earrings: Joolz by Marth Calvo Ami Hoops
- Bag: Cult Gaia Paloma Clutch
- Shoes: Stuart Weitzman Nudist Heel in Brass
2. Maria Lucia Hohan Azoray Bridal Gown
There are few designers I obsess more over on the REVOLVE website right now than Maria Lucia Hohan. Known for her effortlessly draped frocks in shimmering iridescent tones, the designer is one to watch.
You won’t find anything like the Maria Lucia Hohan Azoray Bridal Gown stocked at your local department store. One of the most unique REVOLVE prom dresses on this list, the dreamy silk gown may technically be labeled as bridal for its color, but its sculptural ruffle accents and seashell-esque bodice make it perfectly acceptable for prom.
Wearing white at prom can be a risk with the event’s inevitable spills and stains from dinner and the dance—if you’re not convinced you can keep the gown clean all night long, opt for its Orchid hue instead.
Finish this look with:
3. SAU LEE Lucinda Gown
There’s a distinct moment of bliss when trying on dresses—the moment comes when you’ve found one that seems to just make you glow, adding to your natural beauty rather than taking away from it.
Those dresses are the ones that seem to stay in your closet forever because they don’t come by often.
The SAU LEE Lucinda Gown channels all the classic glamour with sweeping bodice draping, a bardot neckline, and subtle black floral brocade for a radiant look. The gown is accented with frog knots near the neckline, giving it a breath of fresh air and reference to the designer’s heritage.
Style the look with vintage-inspired earrings for a prom outfit Audrey Hepburn would be jealous of.

4. Katie May Surreal Gown
Exude effortless elegance in the Katie May Surreal Gown—one of the REVOLVE prom dresses on this list that can be worn well past high school.
The fitted gown features ruching through the bodice, a relaxed cowl neckline, and a lace accent panel that makes the drapey low back a little more modest.
Don’t bother with fussing over an uncomfortable, stiff dress you can barely walk in all night long, especially if your prom is somewhere unconventional (my sister’s was held at an amusement park).
Unlike other REVOLVE prom dresses, the Katie May Surreal Dress is made of a soft, stretchy fabric that makes getting down on the dance floor (or ditching your distracted date) easy.
Complete the outfit:
- Earrings: SHASHI Pear Diamond Drop Earrings
- Bag: Cult Gaia Banu Mini Fringe Clutch in Clear
- Shoes: Schutz Bari Sandal
5. Norma Kamali Maria Gown
Norma Kamali has made her name in flattering, simple pieces that don’t sacrifice comfort or quality for style at a fair price. The Norma Kamali Maria Gown is a no-brainer if you’re looking for a sleek, minimalist prom dress.
The gown highlights beauty in simplicity, featuring a loose neckline and bias cut that skims the body. Keep accessory options just as straightforward with chunky gold earrings.

6. SOLACE London Meyer Mini Dress
Your prom dress doesn’t technically have to be long—does it?
The SOLACE London Meyer Mini Dress proves that short dresses can be just as head-turning as long gowns.
A cascading train falls naturally from draping around the bodice, elevating the structured taffeta cocktail dress.
Style it with:
- Earrings: SHASHI Fort Knox Drop Earrings
- Bag: Cult Gaia Nala Pleated Metallic Clutch Bag
- Shoes: Stuart Weitzman Nudistcurve 100 Strap Sandals in Orchid

10. Maria Lucia Hohan Zadie Gown
