80s Prom Dress Ideas

80s Prom Dresses Are Back in Style

You’re sure to find inspiration from this slideshow of 80s prom dresses whether you’re a fan of the styles of the 1980s or your prom has an 80s theme. We’re going to take a trip back in time to see what the prom was like in the era many of your parents went to. 

The hot red devil is a perfect example of what you can wear, for example. 

Featuring puffy sleeves and a gathered waist, this dress embodies the style of the 80s with its classic puffy sleeves and gathered waist.

Sweet Sweetheart Neckline

There is no doubt that this dress is an excellent example of the 80s style. In the past few years, we have seen a lot of party dresses with strapless, sweetheart-shaped necklines. The use of multicolored patterns has been popular for many years and will continue to be so.

Rouched and Ready to Dance

As you can see from the picture above, this dress shows off one of the biggest trends of the decade – rouching. In a nice, bright purple, a knee-length, strapless dress looks festive and young on many figures, and looks flattering on many figures. Put on a chunky 80s necklace and you are ready to go. Pair it with a dress from the 1960s or 1970s.

She’s a Peach

The off-the-shoulder style dress was a very popular look in the 80s, as well as pastel colors like this shade of peach, which was a very popular shade as well. As well as the rosette at the center of the bodice, the subtle V-shape at the waistline is also indicative of the decade in which the dress was designed.

Major Metalics

The bold green metallic fabric of the dress and the voluminous ruffles of the skirt are reminiscent of the 80s and bring back memories of that decade. This is a festive dress that is age appropriate and never stuffy; it is a dress that makes her look happy and confident. In the 80s, strapless dresses were the perfect piece of clothing to wear.

Pretty in Pink

In honor of the 80s prom classic Pretty in Pink, dress up in a flirtatious pink frock for an authentic 80s prom experience. While this dress is more modern than the one Molly Ringwald wore in the movie, the theme still comes through in this dress.

Anything Goes Makeup

It seems that the inventive makeup trends of the 80s are making a comeback. Matching her bright purple satin dress with purple eye shadow, she wears a purple lip gloss. In addition, her unique makeup reflects the attitude of the 80s that anything was possible.

Get a Total Vintage Look

In addition to being pretty in pink, this dress is more classic and vintage. From her matching pumps to her pearl necklace, this look is vintage from top to bottom. Don’t be afraid to go all-out when capturing a decade.

Feel Like a Queen

You could win the prize with a dress like this. A short, strapless dress in bubblegum pink will make you the Prom Queen. During the 1980s, rouching and multi-layered skirts were big trends.

All that Glitters is Gold

A decade of excess is reflected in the glitz of gold. An incredibly flattering dress with rouching comes back in a longer, more formal style.

Matching Dress and Jacket

When worn with a dress, a matching jacket will really bring you back to the retro era. Both the dress and the jacket are playful. The combination of bold colors and interesting ruffles creates a very unique style.
