As a senior photographer with models and clients in Taconic Hills, Stissing Mountain, and Webutuck High Schools and more, I get to see some seriously gorgeous prom dresses. Lately I've been so inspired by the dresses that my Mod Squad members are trying on that I keep finding myself creating virtual prom outfits complete with accessories, bags, corsages, etc.! The trends this year are looking bold and beautiful, don't you think? Here are a few that keep popping up over and over as I look at online magazine and shop galleries. Make sure to scroll through each category!
