Back in the day, you wouldn't catch our grandmothers wearing black dresses to prom! For most of the last 50 years, teens usually wore black to orchestra performances and funerals! In the 21st Century, black long dresses are evolving into a classic choice for formal wear, even for teens. For some of us, black is the best color to represent our style. Is a black prom dress in your future? Check out these five:

JVN by Jovani offers many of their beautiful prom gowns in black. This open back dress with a beaded bodice is a striking choice for a formal ball or dance. The shoulder straps are made of illusion fabric, which creates the impression that the beads are cascading down your torso. The rhinestones meet the long black skirt in a flattering shape, emphasizing (or creating) and hourglass shape. Wear this for prom, but you may certainly wear it again!

This sleek one shoulder evening dressmakes a dramatic impact during the promenade. The sequins create a color block effect that is very flattering. Don't you love the way the slit starts just as the sequins end at the thigh?

Trumpet gowns follow the mermaid trend that we saw in last year's prom fashions. This strapless dress from Atria creates the flared skirt with tulle ruffles. The dress body features beaded lace and a peek a boo torso. Very sexy and very dramatic. Girl who chooses this hot dress for prom, you rock!

Speaking of a body conscious, confident black prom dress, Sherri Hill has a fantastic two piece long dressfor those rocking their inner Cleopatra. This floor length dress shows a sliver of waistline and focuses on gorgeous shoulders. This gown will be one of the iconic dresses of Prom 2014.

At the thigh, a full tulle skirt with lace appliqus extends to a short train. Wear this dress for prom, but treasure it for a lifetime.
