Fashions for Proms

4 Bright, Beautiful Orange Long Formal Dresses

When Pantone announced Celosia Orange in its palette for the Spring 2014 forecast, my heart jumped for joy. True, too much of a good thing can be overwhelming, but orange fills the room with happiness! Isn't that what you want when you head out to prom, formals or that extra special occasion? Basically ignored recently in formal wear, it's fun to focus on orange. Whether apricot, carrot or tangerine, there's an orange floor length gown for everyone!

Blush's beaded halter gownmixes beads and the orange trend in an open back dress for 2014. Rhinestones and beads are sewn to a sheer panel, creating a jewel like sparkle to the halter neckline. This orange gown is a shade lighter than trending Celosia Orange, but the color mix is similar.

Nika takes the same elements: beads, sheer panel and orange for a completely different vibe in this sleeveless evening dress. The copper rhinestones and coordinating belt create defined lines in a elegant formal dress. A cut out back echoes the front shaping, while the short train creates a flow behind the long skirt with center front slit. Notably, you can buy this formal dress in sizes 0 to 32!

Blush formal dresses feature many shades of orange this season. I've chosen this strapless apricot high low gownfor the flowing skirt and beaded accents. Doesn't it inspire you to dance? Here's another long dress available in petite or plus sizes.

Orange is a powerful color, making it an excellent choice for a simple dress profile. Case in point? La Glow's orange strapless gown. The beaded sweetheart neckline creates a bandeau bodice. In the front, gentle gathers at the empire waist give you ease of movement. From the back, the line is clean and modern. Believe it or not, this long dress sells for under $100. Excellent use of color, line and your budget!

In Victorian times, the Celosia flower signified humor, warmth and happiness. Perhaps the debut of Netflix's "Orange is the new black" last year brought orange to stylish fashion minds.
Whatever it was, let orange ring! Let your strong, adventurous, joyous side shine when you wear an orange formal dress.
