Paying attention to fashion trends means you run the risk of wearing the same dress with other individuals who also favour the current style or design. Best example is how two piece dresses are currently headlining as prom favourites. Two piece prom dresses, separates, coordinates, or whatever you want to call these versatile, non-traditional prom creations are these season’s edgiest trends.

Just because everyone else is wearing a
two piece dress that doesn’t mean you can’t wear it too. In fact, knowing that
you may not be the only one who will be attending prom in a two piece ensemble,
you can upgrade your look to make it more unique and memorable.
The general rule when choosing a long two piece prom dress, for example, is to keep the right body proportions in mind, so that you have a shapely and balanced silhouette. For example, opt for a body con or cropped top, if your bottom is voluminous.
Here are a few of the cutest ways that you can wear your two piece prom dress:
1. Choose interesting textures.
Whether you’re opting for embroidered, beaded, feathered, or sequined, some attention-grabbing textures will be good on a two piece dress. You can have a laced top paired with a tulle skirt, or a crop top with puff sleeves worn with a fascinating bubble skirt.
2. Take inspiration from princesses.
Bring out the Princess Jasmine in you by picking out a jade-coloured bedazzled two piece dress. Or you can give princess ball gowns a twist and choose a chic embellished crop top paired with a tiered, ruffled skirt that will give you the prettiest of silhouettes when you twirl on the dance floor, like Cinderella danced the night away with Prince Charming.
3. Go for bold colours.
Fiery red, hot pink, fuchsia, magenta, whatever makes you have a second look will surely catch the attention of anyone in the party. Just make sure that the colour you choose complements your skin tone and the design flatters your body type.

4. Outshine them with metallics.
We’ve seen lots of our favorite celebrities walk the red carpet in metallic gowns, so why not wear one to prom? You can wear a silver ensemble for an icy charm or find a glitzy two piece prom dress in rose gold for a more feminine appeal.
5. Channel the spirit of Spring.
If you’re looking to add a feminine touch to your co-ord sets, choose pieces that have flowery details. Even the classic black ensemble can be upgraded with vibrant coloured blooms. Wear a lace top paired with a bottom featuring large floral prints or a dainty top featuring floral appliques on the bodice paired with colour-blocked long skirt or pants.
Shades of yellow, green, pink, blue, and purple—the colours of Spring—also make for attractive prom dress choices.
6. Don’t be shy with accessories.
From the handbags and the footwear you choose to accentuate your two piece prom ensemble with, choose statement pieces that will highlight your dress. Fringed clutches, studded purses, feathered bags, and other textured cases for your little things are perfect accessories for a standout coordinate. Embellished heels are great for one-toned prom dresses. Metallic platforms and sandals also look amazing with two-piece ensembles, especially when worn with princess-y dresses.

With jewellery, pick out a main statement piece and then round up your look with other simple items. Make sure the pieces work with your two piece dress instead of competing for attention. You may also have a corsage pinned onto your dress or worn on your wrist, so maybe don’t go overboard on accessorizing these areas.
