Here are popular fabrics that may be the perfect choice for your prom night:

Taffeta– This high-grade woven fabric is a blend of silk and synthetic fibers. This fabric has a very soft and sleek feel. It is durable and great at holding its shape. This comfortable material is ideal for structured silhouettes like trumpet or mermaid style dresses.

Organza– Organza is a thin, plain weave, sheer fabric traditionally made from silk. This fabric has the appearance of a mix between chiffon and tulle. This material is ideal for overlays on skirts, dresses, and sleeves.

Tulle– This mesh-like material is ideal for layers. If you want a princess-inspired dress with a large skirt a tulle gown is ideal for this look. The more tulle you add the wider and fuller your skirt will become.
