Mermaid and Trumpet

This year's new designs in elegant mermaid prom dresses are at Prom Headquarters. While first introduced in the final years of the 19th century, today's mermaid dresses are formal and flirtier with contemporary flair - the perfect flattering look for a prom.

While prom dress trumpet skirts flair from mid-thigh, floor-length mermaid dresses fishtail from the knee (hence, the mermaid label) to create a divinely feminine silhouette.

Leading prom fashion designers this year are remaking the classic mermaid dress with daring cutouts, glittery fabrics and beautiful design variations. Thoughtful craftsmanship complements every body type.

At Prom Headquarters, we offer this year's prom-ready designs by Sherri Hill, Ellie Wilde, Jasz Couture, Johnathan Kayne and Jovani. See our updated mermaid prom gown collections by Jovani and Morilee. Showcase your mermaid magic with floor-length prom dresses by Amarra or Alyce Paris in mermaid styles with exquisite detailing.

From Ellie Wilde, we have an embroidered tulle mermaid prom dress with gleaming stone accents, fitted bodice and flair-from-the-knee skirting with tulle godets. From Sherri Hill, we have a two-piece mermaid prom dress with a lovely beaded crop top and Mikado fabric mermaid skirt that sweeps the floor.

See this season's trendy two-piece taffeta mermaid dresses with fishtail skirts in bold rose pattern fabrics. From Tiffany Designs, our latest plus-size mermaid prom dress is a cracked-ice tulle creation with daring V-neckline and pretty lace-up back.
