Senior Prom 2024 Dress Trends

Senior Abby Lindsey shows off her unique, cherry red gown with metallic detailing, which she looks forward to wearing to senior prom next Thursday, June 6.

With the RHS senior prom swiftly approaching, most promgoers had finalized the glamorous gowns they hoped would attract envious looks at the Knoll Country Club on Thursday, June 6.

This year, the Class of 2024 saw some returning dress trends mixed in with some new and unique ones based on color, style, material and more.

Promgoers Get the Blues

The pie chart below breaks down the color percentages of 75 dresses RHS promgoers posted on the 2024 senior prom dress page on Facebook. Various shades of blue dominated the chart with a whopping 33% of this year’s prom dress colors.

Vibrant blues were a popular choice among senior promgoers this year. Mackenzie Kreitzer, for one, chose a captivating shade of teal for her dress. “It wasn’t the color I initially planned for, but when I saw it in the store, it caught my eye, and I thought it was really pretty,” she explained.

An elegant and often flattering color, royal blue returned as a favorite for this year’s prom dress buyers. Also, multiple promgoers said they planned to wear light blue, which is perfect for the transitional vibe from spring to summer.

The second most popular dress color is red. “Red is a classy color that really makes you pop out in a crowd,” senior Olivia Myerson said. “I’m really excited to make a statement and wear it for my senior prom.” Myerson’s dress also features a flowy train, which is another common dress trend this year.

Sticking to the Classics

For the most part, RHS seems to have stuck with traditional prom fashions that include silk simplicity, luscious lace and stylish sparkles. Out of the 75 dresses in the color pie chart, 35 feature frill-free fabrics, 26 are bedazzled with sparkles and 14 are lacy and floral.

Silk dresses are arguably the best prom dress material due to their smooth, comfortable feel against the skin, and the flexibility of the fabric that is perfect for dancing. The Class of 2024 proves that this simple yet elegant look is the way to go and that less can be more.

Silk, lace and sparkles are not the only three dress details that’ll be found on the dance floor at prom this year. Senior Abby Lindsey chose a dress that mixes together multiple types of materials. “Since most people are going for a simple look this year, I definitely didn’t want to get a dress that everybody else had,” she said. While her satin dress is mostly cherry red, it features a bright and sparkly silver accent on top. “I loved the satin look but wanted to be more unique. Plus, the dress is very flattering on me, and I’m thrilled to wear it next month.”

Popular Shops

This year, promgoers returned to the popular dress shops that did not disappoint last year’s attendees in 2023, like Coco’s Chateau in Mine Hill, Jaqueline’s Dream Dresses in Livingston and more.

“I got my dress from Castle Couture in Manalapan,” said senior Abby Lindsey, who said that her experience at the shop was a positive one. “There was a huge selection of dresses, and I got my own employee that helped me personally pick out dress options,” she said.
