If you’re not the strapless type, do not despair. There is a multitude of long sleeve prom style dresses you can wear.

Seriously, is it chilly where you live? No problem. Ditch the frumpy coverup and opt for a dress with long sleeves this prom. Cover up a little or a lot — there are tons of options. Sheer or lace sleeves can be modest OR sultry. Skirts with knee-high slits will show off your gams, and backless styles make your hairdo (or body glitter) the star of the show.

Fresh trends like cut-out details or two-piece sets keep things updated. We love a prom dress that you can wear again, and some of these are definitely in that category. Hang onto them for wedding season, or even Halloween. Of course, you can always donate your dress to someone in need, because giving back is where it’s at. Behold some of the prettiest dresses of the season:
