Fashions for Proms

Kicking it up in a party dress

In their online exhibit of party dresses, the Kansas Museum of History shares examples from their collection, spanning hoops and bustles to flapper dresses. What a fun exhibit! How the party dress has changed over time....

Here's three 21st Century dresses for your next celebration.

Sequins sewn in a scalloped pattern swing across this short black party dress. Lined with a mesh overdress, it features a jewel neck and three quarter length sleeves. You could call it flapper meets modern mini. What a great dress to show off your legs!

If you're channeling a more romantic image, try this sleeveless lace party dress. The v neck echoes on the back, while the sash accentuates your waist and the full skirt. The contrasting lining firmly plants this party dress in the 21 Century, highlighting the lace pattern.

Bring the glamour of 1930's Hollywood when you choose this vintage inspired low back cocktail dress for your next party. Slinky, black and body conscious, this party dress skims to your thigh, punctuated with a shiny kick ruffle. Here is a dress that looks great on the dance floor.

Now are you inspired for homecoming, semi formals, weddings or any other party? It's time to kick up your heels!
