    5 Striking Betsy & Adam Prom Dresses

    Trends: Pleats, cut outs, beads

    A long dress with cut outs never looked so sweet! Betsy & Adam pairs pleats and beading with discreet cut outs harmoniously. The vibe is sophisticated and balanced. The sparkling bodice includes seed beads, rhinestones and broken glass jewels that reflect the triangle cut outs placed symmetrically on both back and front. Even the mint color way captures 2015 prom trends. Pastel with chiffon creates a perfect palette for the pleated long skirt.

    More of us are choosing black for prom. Black is a great  investment piece for future formal special occasions. This Betsy & Adam black long gown minimizes your waist with angled beading at the waist. The contemporary sculpted theme continues at the neckline, which also features gold beading in geometric shapes. This floor length gown creates a slim silhouette which is easy to hem… or not (do I hear a sigh from those of us who want to wear heels and are over 5’7″?)

    Black and taupe makes an elegant, trendy statement. This Betsy & Adam prom dress combines sheer layers, lace, satin and jersey for a modern take on the long dress. Featuring a sheer taupe bodice with a keyhole back, a large scale black lace motif radiates from the shoulders and center of the bodice, echoed in the taupe at a smaller scale. At the waist, a long satin ribbon ties at the back, swishing in time with the A-line long skirt. Gorgeous!

    Oo la la! I love the sparkling sexy statement that this open back black dress makes. Betsy & Adam use sheer beaded mesh to define your contours and contrast beautifully with the black jersey. Lines of tiny beads frame the back waist and front body, radiating with confident energy. The high beaded neck means no hunting for the perfect necklace. Beaded mesh across the back lets you move throughout the evening without adjusting or pulling on your gown. This is one well conceived prom dress.

    Jersey, mesh and satin synthesize to create interest in a classic sweetheart gown with spaghetti straps. Betsy & Adam use horizontal satin insets to define the body of this evening dress. At mid thigh, vertical mesh inserts and jersey kick out in the A line skirt. With its empire waistline, this long gown is a flattering, classic choice that you could wear well beyond prom.

    Many of the Betsy & Adam gowns are priced under $200, which make them an excellent choice for prom yet totally wearable for future formal dances and receptions. The only problem? Choosing just one!

    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.

    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?
