Vintage Style Prom Dresses: 1970s and 1980s Style
Author: wallace24 # Views: 2171

Next in our journey on the hunt for the perfect vintage prom dress, let's look at the prom dress possibilities of the 70s era. We're thinking about the style of the beautiful vixen Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface for inspiration. The perfectly cut blonde bob and a satin slip bias cut dress is reminiscent of the 30s, but the eccentric colourful make up made it truly 70s. Sissy Spacek in the horror movie 'Carrie', is the perfect example of how proms were done in the 70s. Lots of champagne nudes, flowing curls and lashings of hair spray. For a nod to the rebellious punk look you can team your demure satin dress with sexy platform shoes. There are lots of options out there on the high street for a simply cut and draped dress. Adding some lovely accessories such as big gold earrings will add even more of the era's charm.

What about the style of the 80s to rock your prom party? The idea of 80s prom is a bit scandalous, and the peroxide blonde and bleached denim is indeed a tad scary. You can try raiding your mum's wardrobe for a long forgotten sequin dress. It might look really loud and colorful but a bit of DIY might prove otherwise. Get your scissors out and take off the lining of the garment, remove those dodgy shoulder pads and you'll instantly make it a sheer decadent dream. Top it off with your trusty old leather biker jacket, and high platforms sandals, to be the coolest chick of your ball.

Have you stumbled across a tatty old long gown with puffy sleeves and horrible long length? Again, get your scissors out to cut it a mini length. If you or you mum has a sewing machine you can easily hem the skirt or take it to your local dry cleaners to get that nice and neat hem for a few dollars. Add some spunky studs on the shoulders of your dress, and team with a studded alice band to be top of the interesting outfits at your prom. Like so many examples that we've listed in the past articles, it's totally possible to find ourselves some inexpensive vintage dresses to alter for our prom, or even better, we can get a vintage style dress to imitate the style of all those sirens in different eras from some of the movies we listed as inspiration.
