Side Cut Outs
Here's a long formal gown with side cut outs under $100. A sequin braid trims the lace panels that embellish front side cut outs. That same braid sparkles on the dress straps leading from the gathered bodice. There's a center front keyhole cut out that's difficult to see in this photo, but definitely adds allure to a formal dress. Black is a classic investment choice, but I think the royal blue version of the dress is very tempting.


This strapless lace dress has a sweetheart neckline and slim skirt. It's a classic yet sophisticated prom dress profile. But the dress lining stops above the knee, letting the lace netting flow freely and showing off a bit of leg. This sheer effect is definitely a 2014 trend, with a twist. The focus is on your legs, not your torso. A wide black belt with the floral buckle sets off the dress beautifully! Once again, you're under the $100 price point and you still get to have fun styling your look for prom.


PromGirl has oodles of long prom dresses featuring beads for less than $100. I chose this Night Moves formal dressfor the wide range of available colors, the sweet cut out back and the back bustle. The cut is flattering, the keyhole at front and back is a nice touch. To top it off, it's available in sizes 0 - 32.


Choosing just one example of a sequin long prom dress under $100was not easy. In the end, I chose the most popular dress in the category when I used the PromGirl Quick Dress Finder, filtering for length, sequin styling and price point. Available in red or silver, this sleeveless sequin dress is only available in petite sizes. The jewel neckline helps you focus on choosing the right bracelet and earrings, as no necklace is necessary. A deep V back lets you show off all of those push ups you've done! Good discovery, bargain prom dress shoppers!

Which trend fits you the best? I can't wait to see what you choose!
