In Trends

At Sixpence, we’ve just begun running “Prom Nights”. We love having the opportunity to help high school girls find their perfect prom dress. Like our bridal selection, our Prom and Grad dresses are once loved, giving girls the opportunity to get a designer dress for 40-60% off the regular price.

We also have some pretty fun floral accessories to add to your prom look. We are working with the lovely and talented ladies at Blooms and Flora to bring you all your flower needs. Flower Crowns, Flower Arm Bands (be ahead of the trends with these pieces!!) and corsages. If you find your dress at Sixpence you will get a special gift to use at the best flower shop in town! We have sample pieces at the shop to try on with your dress. Blooms and Flora will customize the colours of our floral accessory to match your dress! How much cooler can it get?

Prom Shopping Hours
Sixpence Prom Nights are held at Sixpence Bridal Studio in Guelph from 5:00pm-8:00pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings until the end of May. There is no appointments needed during the times listed above.

Here are a few of our favourite trends for this Prom season.

Hard to Believe ~ Illusion Dresses
Ahhh… Illusion dresses. A source of fascination, illusion dresses appear to be ‘barely there’ in spots, which can make an unbelievable statement. Try one on, as often they feel less revealing than they appear.

Better than a Turtleneck ~ High Necklines
Is high the new low? A high neckline is a modern yet classy look – one that provides a little more coverage up top, but doesn’t aim to hide. One other bonus: if you’ve got some beading on the dress and it’s high neck, there’s usually no need for any fancy jewelry.

Glamour Girls ~ Sequins and Sparkle
Because diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right? Okay, even if they’re not your favourite, you’d be surprised at the number of people who reluctantly try a dress with some bling and end up falling in love with it! A little sparkle could be just the thing to help you feel glamorous on your prom night.

Twice as Much to Love ~ Two Pieces
Make a statement this year with a two piece ensemble, then you can keep the separates for another occasion! You can get matching separates, or mix up the colours for a bit of two looks.

Feminine Florals ~ Prints and Appliques

Weather it be a gorgeous floral print or 3D flower appliqués, these styles ooze the sense of femininity and beauty. Even more perfect for the time of year!

Make the Cut ~ Cut Outs and Open backs
‘Scandalous?’…We think not! Open back details and side cut outs bring a playful vibe to a dress. With the right dress, cut outs can be flattering and help accentuate your shape. Most of these dresses include a nude mesh panel to give the illusion of skin.
