Drop waists and art deco were the bee’s knees in the Roaring 20s. While the earliest mention of a high school prom (that we could find!) was in the 1890s, it wasn’t until the 1920s and 1930s and prom became the huge year-end event it is now.

As demonstrated by the classic icon Grace Kelly, 1950s prom dresses had narrow waists and flouncing skirts. This shape created a lovely, graceful silhouette and your grandmother probably looked fabulous!

The 1980s can be summed up in one phrase: the bigger, the better! Bigger hair and bigger prom dresses were the mark of the 80s, and you can bet your mom wore a shiny, colored dress with a huge perm and even bigger smile.
