1950s prom and party dresses make fun, feminine, and colorful gowns to wear for any special occasion. Formal 1950s prom dresses were layers of tulle and snug princess cut bodices. These dresses were floor length or tea length, similar to retro swing dresses but with nicer material.
Pink was the hottest prom color back then with other bright colors being popular too. Bodices were strapless, halter neck, or mesh top short sleeves with silver and gold embroidery or accented with bows.
