Vintage Style Prom Dresses: 1970s and 1980s Style
Next, on our journey in search of the perfect vintage ball gown, let’s take a look at the ball gown options from the 1970s. For inspiration, let’s think of the style of the beautiful bitch Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface. The blonde’s perfect cut and diagonally cut satin underwear remind us of the 1930s, but the eccentric colorful makeup made it a true 70s dress. Sissy Spacek in the horror movie “Carrie” is the perfect example of how gala balls were done in the 70s. Lots of champagne nudes, loose curls, and lacquer whips. For a wink to the rebellious punk look, you can combine your sober satin dress with some sexy platform shoes. On the street, there are many possibilities for a simple cut and draped dress. Adding some lovely accessories like big gold earrings will add to the charm of this era.
How about the 80s style to make your prom vibrant? The ’80s prom idea is a little outrageous, and the peroxide blonde and bleached denim is actually a little scary. You can try looking in your mom’s closet for a long-forgotten sequined dress. It may look very loud and colorful, but a little DIY might prove otherwise. Take out your scissors, remove the lining from the garment, take off those questionable shoulder pads, and it will be a decadent dream. And then add the old leather jacket and the high platform sandals to be the coolest girl at the dance.
Have you ever stumbled upon an old, run-down long dress with puffed sleeves and terribly long sleeves? Take out your scissors again to cut it to mini size. If you or your mother have a sewing machine, you can easily fold the skirt or take it to the local dry cleaner to get that nice, clean hem for a few dollars. Add a few bold heels on the shoulders of your dress and work with a studded Alice band to make it one of the cool outfits at your prom. As with so many examples we have listed in previous articles, it is perfectly possible to get some cheap vintage dresses that we can redesign for our prom, or even better, we can get a vintage style dress that mimics the style of all those mermaids from different eras from some of the movies we have listed for inspiration.
