There are long and short two-piece dresses for every occasion, budget, and season. There are luxurious two-piece evening gowns from famous designers, chic and unique two-piece beaded long halter two-piece dresses, sequin dresses, dresses with sleeves, and many other styles at physical venues and online.

Buyer’s Guide: What to Look 

Most girls look for a two-piece dress with a more youthful design. Popular choices include two-piece lace bodices or crop top dresses.

A plunging V-neck is suitable for well-endowed girls, and very racy when paired with a sheer open back.

Two-piece dresses draw attention to well-toned abs. Look for a style that is flattering to your unique body type, whether short or floor length.

Your budget is a major consideration. Most designers offer versatile products that are priced to fit different budget.

Always check if your two-piece dress of choice is in stock and ready to ship. Keep your school’s prom dress code in mind – it’s happened that girls were sent home for wearing something too revealing.

If you’re not sure, it’s best to keep things safe and not be overly sexy. If your two-piece dress is short, choose a more modest neckline such as high or sweetheart and a closed back. If it’s long, but with a very high slit, the same applies. A long dress with a knee-high slit is conducive to more daring necklines.

Short and Long Two Piece Formal Evening Gowns

Two piece gowns in complementary colors or patterns create a fabulous and super chic look. Two piece dresses and gowns are getting more and more popular because of how comfortable they are and because they represent a break with tradition.

They are a great way to throw your personal flair and stand out at prom. Black and white patterns and hues of red are going to be huge in 2020.

A-line styles and bodycon cuts never go out of style. You can opt for a club dress in silver or gold or a short sheath party dress in solid colors like emerald green or dark blue.

Two pieces in off white and ivory are uniquely beautiful and astonishing. Opt for mini, midi, or maxi – the choice is yours. This is the perfect wear for prom-goers who want to look different.

Best Halter Top Two Piece Prom Dress

Halter Top Two Piece PromAh, the halter. Racy, creative, and unique – what more could you want? This eye-catching attire will give you a chance to channel your inner diva when you arrive in a two-piece halter top prom dress.

Two-piece halter top dresses are a perfect way for you to explore an endless amount of style combinations. Normally, fitted bodices are paired with gorgeous silhouettes to flatter any figure, making it easy to choose your preferred silhouette.

Two-piece gowns can feature many different details such as rhinestone embellishments or unique hemming along the bodice.

Adding to the allure of the halter design are statement-making details such as eccentric print patterns and dazzling beadwork, sequins, or crystals.

Designs within the two-piece style can either showcase a bold contrasting pattern or run elegantly throughout.

The versatility of two-piece prom dresses makes it easy for you to create a unique look in many ways. Another advantage is being able to wear the dress as two separate outfit pieces – the top and the skirt or pants (if you opt for a pantsuit over a dress) – long after the prom is over.

Frequently Asked Questions  

Our last section contains frequently asked questions about two-piece dresses and the prom in general. 

When should you start shopping for prom?

If your prom is in the summer, you’ll want to start making plans and thinking about dresses up to 6 months in advance. Do online research before shopping at physical venues.

What are good prom dress websites?

According to user ratings, some good online stores include The Dress Warehouse, New York Dress, Charlotte Russe, Dillard’s, Faviana, Fame and Partners, and Sherri Hill. 

What color should my prom dress be?

If your complexion is olive, avoid brown, yellow, and black because they’ll blend in with the skin and the look will not be appealing.

Instead, opt for a dress in off white, champagne, ivory, red, and gold. Women with pale skin will find bold colors like light blue, pink, yellow, purple, and metallic colors flattering.

White looks good on dark skin. The color should be chosen based not only on skin tone, but also eye and hair color. Red hair and a red dress are a classic combo.

What are the best prom dress brands?

There are a lot of great prom dress designers. For two piece dresses specifically, we recommend Sherri Hill, Faviana, Jovani, Terani, Blush, Zoey Grey, Madison James, Andrea and Leo, Crystalline, and Cameron Blake. 

Should I pick a Two-piece Dress? 

body shapes of prom dressesConsider your body type. Is it pear-shaped, apple-shaped, petite, athletic, hourglass, or curvy?

Two-piece dresses look best on petite, athletic, and hourglass-shaped girls. Pear-shaped body types are those, where most of the weight is at the hips.

A two-piece is recommended to these girls too because the cute midriff cut will draw attention away from the hips.

However, apple-shaped body types shouldn’t choose this style because it draws attention to the abdomen, where most of the weight is concentrated. Of course, if you like the style, this shouldn’t stop you.

How do I pick the Right Prom dress?

Start by setting a budget and sticking to it. Then, consider your body type as per the explanation above. When you start shopping, check out online marketplaces first.
Shop early because the dress will probably need adjusting. 

What is a Reasonable Price for Prom?

According to a 2015 survey from Visa, American families were spending an average of about $919 on their prom-goers(source). That was down only slightly from $978 in 2014; it peaked in 2013 with the average cost of prom being $1,139. 

How much do Two-piece dresses cost?

On average, a designer two piece prom dress will set you back by $300 to $500. 

Is prom Worth The Money?

Prom can be an expensive event for the average family. Dresses range from $100 to up to $400. Then, there is the money you spend on getting your makeup, hair, and nails done. 

Is it weird to wear a short two-piece dress to prom?

white Two Piece Prom DressesIt’s not weird, but check the school’s dress code. Make sure you feel comfortable in it because it’s quite revealing – your midriff, your legs, and probably your back will show.

It will attract attention so you need to be OK with that.

Can you wear a white two-piece prom dress?

Of course, you can wear any color you want. White isn’t reserved for brides and bridesmaids. Consider what you will wear under and over the dress.

Combine your unique skin tone with the right shade of white to look your best.  You May want to choose a modest prom dress.
