At the end of the school year, it’s traditional at prom time for kids to dress up and celebrate the achievements of the past year while having fun with their friends. Prom is a huge deal as it’s a beautiful memory to carry for a lifetime, from the laughter, music and awards, to — most notably — the dress! Prom used to be just for school leavers, but it’s becoming increasingly common to attend prom at other stages in the school year — so that’s a lot of dresses to get right.
No matter what the age or personal preference of your little lady, it’s vital to consider the season of the prom. After all, there’s nothing worse than feeling cold while posing for essential photos — or sweating buckets in a thick, heavy dress.
To give you a helping hand, here’s our style code on how to choose the best prom dresses for children, depending on the season.
Spring/Summer Prom Dresses for Kids
With warm weather on the horizon and the sense of fresh rejuvenation in the air, spring and summer prom dresses call for pretty pastel colours to suit the cheerful mood. We especially love the seasonal hues of delicate ivory, pristine pink, eggshell blue, zany green and pastel yellow.
Alternatively, this is the perfect time of year to draw inspiration from the blossoming flowers and choose a dress adorned with intricate floral designs and a matching floral corsage. Generally, these tones and designs will guide you towards dresses of thinner fabric — great for keeping your little lady cool.
So, either a knee-length or midi-length cocktail dress — which falls below the knee and above the ankle — is perfect. We suggest a pretty tea dress with a short sleeve for the occasion as the light fabric and comfortable yet stylish design make an easy choice. Browse our spring and summer collection here.
Autumn/Winter Prom Dresses for Kids
Autumn and winter are the seasons of celebration — and so a great time to invest in a luxury prom dress as it’s perfect to wear at Christmas and on New Years’ Eve too.
An autumn prom party requires a seasonal colour, such as powdery pink, classic plum and regal gold, along with a balloon-hem sleeve to add a fairytale flourish.
A winter prom dress, however, should channel sparkly ice tones — like frosty blues and sensational silvers. These colours, coupled with luxurious satin or delicate lace in waterfall pleats, will make your girl the belle of the ball. Browse our autumn and winter collection here.
Whatever the season, there’s a David Charles winter dress to suit every little girl, so treat yours to the perfect prom dress this season.
