Prevue Instagram Hits 100k!

Last month Prevue Instagram hit 100k followers and we couldn’t be more thankful to all of you for the love over the years! This milestone is one of many to come and motivates us to let the creativity flow by keeping our content fresh with the hottest new dresses daily. Social media has let us connect with girls across the country and help them be the best dressed at all of their events. Our favorite part of Instagram? Picture perfect photos sliding into our DMs from customers who rocked their gowns at prom, on stage, on the red carpet, or our all time favorite: bombshell brides walking down the aisle. Whether it’s a last minute date night or your one and only Big Day, we are so happy to have helped you find the perfect dress for your occasion. 

Pageant love on Prevue Instagram: Cinderella dreams can come true at Prevue. The sprinkle sequins let you sparkle from all angels to feel like a real life princess. The angelic cape softly flows behind as you make your entrance but the all over sparkle and high slit brings the drama for the jaw dropping first impression. This gown is a Sherri Hill recreation of one of her amazing Sherri Hill Couture gowns that won national titles on stages across the United States. While the original Couture was available in a very small select number of stores, including Prevue, this version in her Spring 2020 line is under $998 allowing more girls to say Yes! to this winning gown. 

All that glitters is GOLD. These gowns may not be available in the color gold but this photo is Instagram gold for Prevue. Sherri Hill did it again with the glitter fabric, lace up back, pockets, and dare to be bare high slit. All of these elements combined into one gown has created what we consider, Prom Perfection. Our followers showed love on this photo with likes over 12k and fire comments supporting this shot. Prevue’s reason to dub this our favorite photo? This is our top selling gown on our very own Team Prevue prom consultants who look gorgeous on camera.

POWER MOVE. The beauty of Instagram is that we have no control over what our followers will love. What we have learned from trial and error: RED is always the right answer. This leaf lace has been the top selling fabric in Sherri Hill’s Spring line over the past few years and adding red to the color wheel just broke Prevue Instagram. Coming in at 148 comments and over 14.5k likes, this is our best post of the year. Red is the color for any occasion: pageant, prom, military ball, holiday, engagement party. From a simple little red dress for homecoming to taking home the Miss USA crown, red will always make you stand out in a crowd. There’s no doubt the Instagram guru’s knew what they were doing when they gave us the dancing lady emoji wearing a red dress. 

The biggest take away for those of you starting a fashion Instagram or a start up business: stay humble. You will be wrong 99% of the time as to what will have the highest likes. Here is what we have learned over the years as we have built our momentum and created a loyal following: post the photo, it does not have to match perfectly because variety speaks to more people, be fluid and recreate photos that worked for you in the past, and most importantly you need to show you are human. 

The Prevue Team thanks every single one of you for every single like and comment. The second it takes for you to show love boosts our motivation to seek out new background, new photo ops, and most importantly NEW HOT DRESSES. 

With so much love.

XOXO, The Prevue Girls

If Prom 2020’s style is inspired by the Critics’ Choice Awards Gowns… we’re all for it. From Kristen Bell’s neon charmeuse cape jumpsuit to Zendaya’s fuchsia two-piece armor look, there is inspo for anyone wanting to make a statement at Prom 2020.

The most unique risk the year: JUMPSUITS. The term “prom dress” of the past would never have included glamorous jumpsuits of beaded patterns or sleek pants attached to one shoulder sleeve capes. In 2020, stepping outside the box is the new normal and anything goes. This stretch jersey fabric by Jessica Angel comes in 90 colors and molds to the body while being comfortable to dance the night away. 

There is such a range of styles that can all be dubbed “hottest of the season” for prom 2020. You can easily be uniquely YOU and break the mold. Bright colors, asymmetrical cuts, and mixed fabrics have changed the typical “prom” look so we can bring back the funk. Ethereal hand tie dyed fabrics turn heads while looking romantic and soft. Betty Gilpin looks amazing in her Oscar de la Renta gown flowing effortlessly off her shoulders. You can get her look from Sherri Hill’s Spring 2020 line at Prevue.

Jessica Angel Dresses

Celebrity vs. Reality

The red carpet is where all of the trends start, ones we love and ones we hate… especially the styles we love to hate. The Met Gala has become the event where celebrities break the threshold of normal and wear gowns that are borderline costume but always iconic. We love to see celebrities attempting to out dress their fren-emies adding fuel to the latest feuds. Katy Perry dressing up as an actual chandelier? Awesome, but not my fashion idol when I am in search of a formal gown. This past week brought on more feathers and fringe than we could imagine. Kendall and Kylie stole the show in their evil step-sister rendition of Cinderella with orange and purple feathers and blinding sparkle. These are all insanely fun to repost and add to our Pinterest board but what happens when it is time for us to wear an evening gown? What direction do we take as to not become the next red carpet flop?

PSA: Jessica Angel is your new best friend.

Sleek is the New Sexy

Luxurious stretch fabric that hides all of our flaws: YES this is a real thing. Jessica Angel dresses have incredible stretch that molds to your figure and accentuates all of your assets.

As all women know, fit is everything and this fabric feels like you just slipped on a pair of Spanx and are wearing your favorite bra. Jessica Angel dresses are a dream come true and we have the largest selection in stock at Prevue.

These formal gowns feel like your own skin with no added fuss of rhinestones, beading, or layers of lining and tulle. The idea doesn’t seem possible until you try one on for yourself. The only catch to the hottest brand in the market right now is that you have to be able to decide between the 90 amazing colors these gowns come in.

Jessica Angel dresses are seen on young women headed to prom, military ball, and formal events as well as bridesmaids and mothers of the bride.

For all of you that fear formal wear shopping, it’s time to get excited. You will love every angle and every photo in your Jessica Angel dress.

Glam it up

You can create the look you want with your Jessica Angel dress: California Barbie in hot pink or sophisticated Audrey Hepburn in classic black.

Jessica Angel offers customizable styles with extended trains for a more dramatic look on stage or at your wedding, so you vamp up the glam with out vamping up the price.

Bringing it back: the reinvented corset back utilizes the lace up ties for a tight fit but allows for low back dresses. The combination of this skinny lace up string to pull the bust and waist tight lets you feel snatched and daring as you make your grand entrance.

1. Buy for your body

Whether you’re dreaming of a gown that glitters or you’re searching for a sleek, figure-hugging dress, start by shopping silhouettes that enhance your favorite features.

2. Know the school rules

Strapless styles, low back cuts, and slits may be trending, but don’t risk getting turned away at the door in a gown that’s too revealing for school.

3. Don’t forget your accessories

Keep your eyes open for jewelry and other accessories that will take your look from gorgeous to all-out glam. Find inspiration on your favorite celebrities and try on what your stylist suggests.

4. Think about the theme

Your prom’s theme may inspire you to try on unexpected dresses, but don’t feel like you have to choose a theme-inspired dress.

5. Shop your colors

You’ll definitely stun on prom night when you shop dresses in the hues that make you look and feel like an A-lister.

6. Avoid wardrobe malfunctions

A Red Carpet gown is not always functional… the perfect prom dress is danceable! This will be one of the biggest nights of your life, and you should be confident and comfortable.

7. Be beautifully you

You know your vibe better than anyone. Are you edgy but glam? Do you prefer sparkle like a princess? Is your style minimalist… or extra? Don’t worry about what’s trending; shop whatever makes you feel gorgeous!

Finally, remember that finding the perfect prom dress takes time, but when jaws drop as you make your entrance, you’ll know the search was worth it.
