Prom is an important moment in everyone’s high school life, especially for the girls.  Finding the perfect dress for the perfect price can make the whole process a little more stressful. Every year there are different trends in color and style and trying to look fabulous while staying on budget can be difficult. 

Whether you are shopping at Glitterati or Revolve, styles, and prices can range. Revolve is the place to shop for classy, strapless, or silk prom dresses ranging from $150-3,000. 

On the other hand, Glitterati has been a favorite for prom dress shopping since 2002. Glitterati offers a wide selection of styles and colors, which also range in price stretching from $100-4,000. If you are looking for a flashy, sparkly dress, Glitterati is where you want to shop.

Both these stores offer in-person shopping along with online for those who want to skip the long lines and the mall. Having an option for an online store is very important in today’s more electronic world. Both stores offer the option of in-person and online returns for full credit as long as the dress is returned within 30 days.

When it comes to what to shop for, keep in mind that in 2023 some of the more basic ideas and styles are coming back. Styles such as sequins and sparkles are making an appearance in many schools’ proms. However, the idea of a more classy look, such as silk, is also very in for the 2023 prom. 

No matter what style you prefer or your price range, what is most important is the dress that make you feel confident.
