Let the stars guide you to the most gorgeous gown.
You turn to your horoscope for insight into your love life, friendships, and school, so why not look to the stars for style guidance, too? We partnered with Kim Allen, legendary astrologist, to help you pick the prom dress that will make you shine the most, all based on your astrological sign.
Aries girls are natural-born leaders who love to jump on the newest trends. You’re bold, daring, and have an eye on the next big thing. Right now, that means high necks and two-piece dresses. This look combines both, officially making you the flyest girl on the dance floor.
You’ve dreamed of wearing a big ball gown silhouette to prom ever since you were a little girl. That’s just how classic, polished Taurus gals roll. You love looking glam, but comfort reigns supreme for you… hence, the roomy skirt and the floor-sweeping hem (no one will even notice if you opt for flats instead of heels!).
Gemini is an air sign, which means you’ll feel most comfortable in a dress that offers tons of movement — all the better to breeze around in. Pick a gown with a flirty slit, and you’ll have no problem twirling around the dance floor with your date and darting between tables to say hi to all your friends — which is exactly how a social butterfly like you will wind up spending the night.
You have ~fancy~ taste, Cancer. You don’t necessarily need to splurge on your dress, but you want it to at least look expensive. How? Opt for clean lines and a rich color (purple is the color of royalty, fyi) to feel your most powerful. Cancer girls are confident enough to rock form-fitting silhouettes, so don’t be afraid to pick a dress that shows off your shape.
You’re the life of the party, Leo! Naturally, head-to-toe sequins is the way to go. Sparkles reflect light so you’ll literally light up the dance floor… not that you don’t already do that on your own. There’s no chance of blending into the crowd when you’re wearing a gown this show-stopping.
Virgos are organized, practical, and take pride in their bodies: you want a no-fuss style that shows off your shape and is classic enough that you can wear again (like to a sorority formal in college, or your cousin’s black-tie wedding). A glittering neckline will add just enough glam to make your look pop.
If you boiled Libras down to one word, it’d be elegant. A long A-line gown in a pretty pastel hue is pretty, posh, and timeless, just like you. When you look back at your prom pictures 20 years from now, your classic gown will still look beautiful. But remember, classic doesn’t mean boring — intricate embellishments are bound to score you tons of compliments.
Scorpio is a passionate, flirty sign. For prom, channel Old Hollywood sirens in a sultry, slinky gown that shows off your shape. Go for a classic black or a bold red hue with a flirty neckline or cutout details to up the va-va-voom factor. Bonus points if you really commit to the theme and roll up to prom in an old-fashioned car.
Sagittarians are energetic, bold, and full of fun. Pick a gown in a shade that really pops. Anything that makes you feel happy and light-hearted and gets you excited to hit the dance floor is right for prom night.
Out of all your friends, you’re the most mature, Capricorn. Leave the bright colors and frilly silhouettes to your squad. You gravitate towards neutrals (think nude, charcoal, navy, black) and sophisticated silhouettes that make you feel chic and powerful.
Aquarius, your biggest prom nightmare is walking into the room and realizing that three other girls are wearing dresses that look just like yours. Banish your fears with a one-of-a-kind gown that combines standout details like feathers and beading and unique color-blocking. Finally, a dress that’s as bold as you are!
Pisces girls are big dreamers with a creative, romantic side. Translation: you feel most at home in a feminine dress with intricate details that looks fit for a princess, like lace, tulle, and sheer paneling. Pretty pastel hues will perfectly fit your romantic side.
