Coco Chanel has a famous quote, "Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance." And, this idea holds today. Trends may come and go, but some of the most beautiful choices will always be the simplest. When you're choosing a dress for prom, we highly encourage you to try on some simple prom dresses.

What is a Simple Dress?

The exact definition of a simple dress will vary from person to person. However, the consensus is that a simple dress is typically one solid color, without a design that is too complicated. The important thing to note here is that simple doesn't mean boring, cheap, or uninventive. Instead, simple dresses are often very elegant, formal gowns.

Simple Dress Inspiration

To get some inspiration for possible dresses, we recommend turning to the red carpet. Taylor Schilling wore a stunningly simple white dress to the 2013 Emmy Awards. Zoe Kravitz rocked a plain black dress to the 2018 Golden Globes and still managed to look absolutely wonderful. As did Sophie Turner in her simple black dress at the 2016 SAG awards that still turned heads. Lastly, one of the most iconic looks Selena Gomez has ever worn was her short simple red dress at the LA movie premiere for Rudderless.

A celebrity that has repeatedly worn simple dresses is Gwenyth Paltrow. Google "Gwenyth Paltrow plain white dress" to see countless examples of her in stunning gowns.

How to Style Simple Dresses

Whether you're styling simple prom dresses or simple homecoming dresses, there's a lot of flexibility. First of all, plain and simple dresses are suitable for any body shape or size. Simple dresses come plus size, with long sleeves, cocktail dresses, formal gowns, or any other style you can imagine.

Secondly, elevate your plain prom dress with accessories that pop. Your simple prom dress is elegant, and you can make it feel a little more special by adding an extravagant necklace, eye-catching earrings, or intricate shoes.

A simple prom dress shouldn't make you feel plain or simple at all. Instead, it should make you feel classy and sophisticated. You should feel that you made an elegant choice that will translate over the years in any photo. You won't have those thoughts most people have when they look back at their prom photos and think, "What was I wearing!"

The simplistic trend is everything we want and more! Ideal for evening formal occasions like military balls, galas, and prom. Little to no beading is a classy and sophisticated trait that lets you stand out in the gown without all the distractions of glitter and prints.
