Strapless prom dresses have been a fan favorite choice for young ladies for a couple of decades now. The strapless dress is a wonderful option for a sexy but elegant look.

Brief History of Strapless Dresses

There was a moment in time when strapless dresses were considered the ultimate risque look. The first strapless dress is often credited to designer Mainbocher from the 1930s. The first record of a photographed woman in a strapless dress was actress Libby Holman in July 1932. It was deemed 'the naked look' at the time but eventually grew in popularity and dropped its label as a 'racy' choice of attire.

Strapless Dress Inspiration

There are many styles of strapless prom dresses to choose from. To gather some inspiration, we recommend turning to the red carpet. If you're considering long strapless prom dresses, check out Bella Hadid's sexy sweetheart neckline strapless dress at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Beyonce's black mermaid gown at the 2005 Oscars, Anne Hathaway's sequin gold strapless dress at the 2010 Met Ball, or Margot Robbie's stunning white cut-out strapless dress at the 2016 Met Gala.

If you're leaning towards short strapless prom dresses, we have plenty of examples for you too! Check out Taylor Swift's bright green cocktail dress at the Easy A movie premiere, Angelina Jolie's gorgeous white midi dress at the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards, or Rihanna's knee-length chiffon white dress at the 2007 BET awards.

Strapless dresses look amazing in any length from to the floor, to midi, to the cocktail dress.

How to Style a Strapless Prom Dress

Anyone can rock a strapless prom dress. This style of dress brings attention to your collarbone and neck for a sensual look. As the eyes are drawn to the neckline, it's recommended to wear an eye-catching necklace that compliments your entire outfit.

When choosing a strapless dress, make sure that you have a great supportive bra. For young women who have smaller cup sizes, going braless might work. However, for women with larger bra cup sizes, a great supportive bra will stop you from hiking up your dress the entire night.
