Nothing is quite as fun as a bright color, and we love this gorgeous bright blue Sherri Hill dress. The rest of the dress sticks to a simple, classic silhouette, while the bold color and subtly shiny fabric bring all the attention to you. We love the way this dress balances elegance with fun, creating the perfect simple, bold dress.

A bold move we love? Jumpsuits for prom! While still formal, the pants give you more room to dance. We love the way this jumpsuit has a one-shoulder neckline and diagonal cutout, creating a cool parallel effect on top to make a statement.

There’s lots to love about this dress, but our favorite is the gorgeous, structured ruffle at the top of the slit. The ruffle creates a striking shape, and perfectly creates the slit for a unique yet stunning dress. We love the way the dress gathers towards the top of the ruffle, flattering your figure.

How fun is this cheetah print dress? The shape is simple and elegant, but the pattern gives this dress a fun, bold touch we love. The print is busy but neutral, and perfect for girls looking for something fun that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
