Authentic vintage? Vintage reproduction? Vintage inspired? No matter which, 1950s prom dresses and 50s party dresses make fun, feminine, and colorful gowns to wear for a special occasion.
Formal 1950s prom dresses were layers of tulle and snug princess cut bodices. These dresses were floor length or tea length – similar to retro swing dresses but with nicer materials.

Bows were the most popular accent. Read more about the history of vintage 1950s prom dresses.
