    Prom gets all of the attention at this time of the year, but let’s be real: A semi formal dress works not only as a short prom dress these days, but for greek social events, semi formal dances, wedding receptions, or any fabulous party. Hannah S semi formal dresses are a fab choice for any of these special occasions. In addition, their semi formal dresses are available in sizes 0 – 30, so whether you need a petite or plus size, Hannah S has plenty of options! Here’s my pick for:

    5 Charming Hannah S Semi Formal Dresses

    PromGirl Hannah S 2 piece semi formal dress

    Hannah S 2 piece short party dress

    Hannah S interprets the two piece dress trend with an adorable beaded bodice topped with sheer panels. There’s just the tiniest peek of midriff accenting the waist like a narrow belt. The peek a boo contrasts with sparkling rhinestones, pearls and seed bead motif that continues from the bodice to the waistband of the shirred skirt. With this semi formal dress, you get a strapless look with the comfort of shoulder straps and trendy style. This Hannah S frock is an adorable choice for spring formals and semi formal dances.

    Camo print Hannah S baby doll dress

    Camouflage never looked so good as this Hannah S baby doll dress. With a beaded sheer back and flared full skirt, this emerald and citron green camouflage print adds edge to a typically girly silhouette. Clear beads accented with green sequins give the large beaded motifs and extra shimmer. Watch them stand at attention when you march into this fun interpretation of camo.

    Large rhinestones cover the halter bodice of this darling Hannah S semi formal dress. Fun details like sparkle tulle and a fishline hem are no surprise to a baby doll dress. The wide pleated waistband lengthens your torso, which is flattering for many figures. Whether you like bright or pastel colors, this semi formal dress is a fun choice!

    PromGirl Hannah S sequin semi formal dress

    Sequin Hannah S sheath dress

    Sheath dresses are a classic dress shape, but adding sequins make this Hannah S semi formal dress a trendy choice for evening events. With full sequin coverage on the body and random coverage on sheer panels, you’ll look like you’re floating in this beautiful short frock. Cut above the knee, the sheath dress has loads of styling opportunities to play with texture contrasts or themes for your special occasion.

    Black beaded Hannah S semi formal dress


    I adore the spider web beading that covers the bodice of this darling sleeveless dress. Once again, the combination of tulle, beads and sheer layers defines this frock as semi formal. The shirred skirt and cut out back make it fun and young. When you choose black, you’ve got a fun lbd and the perfect contrast to clear beading on the bodice. These higher neck beaded dresses take the pressure off to find the perfect necklace. Let the glorious beading catch the eye, keeping your other jewelry simple (although I’m always up for a jeweled hair pin, fascinator or other hair accessory).

    So there’s my favorite Hannah S semi formal dresses. I notice I’m leaning toward the beaded baby doll frocks. Which ones do you prefer?

    5 Prom Dresses for under $150

    budget beaded sheer prom dress

    Beaded sheer panels and chiffon prom dress for under $150

    Capture this season’s trends and stay in budget with a beaded sheer panel long dress. Gently gathered chiffon panels create a fabulous feminine silhouette that is worry free from the first snapchat post until the last dance. Beaded sheer panels create sparkling shoulder straps, surround the deep scoop back and wrap under the arm in a way that’s daring yet… shall I say demure? Great style, great looks and a great price.

    La Femme strapless prom dress under $150

    La Femme strapless sequin long gown

    La Femme’s strapless sequin dress dress has a fabulous price AND a totally glamourous look. Rich layers of gold sequins cover the entire floor length gown.

    Choosing red for your prom dress shows off your dynamic personality. Honey, if you’ve got it, don’t hide it. Choose this criss cross red prom gown. I love the full skirt, the flowing drape of the jersey knit fabric and that sheer panel peek a boo at the rib cage.

    Sheer Panel lace and tulle short prom dress

    Picturing yourself in a flirty short prom gown? This adorable lilac baby doll dress uses sheer panels, lace and a touch of sparkling beads in addition to those magnificent layers of tulle and shiny satin in the full skirt.
