Each year, we look forward to seeing the prom dress styles the girls of the Boston area will gravitate to. Inevitably, we spot the year’s trends early on, whether it’s a neckline everyone is after, or a color we can’t keep in stock. Based on our big hits from each season, we can anticipate what to order for the following year, what’s going out of style, and what the next big dress style will be.
