March 21 - April 19



As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries approaches life boldly, charging in headfirst towards every situation—so it’s only fitting that this fire sign wears something to make a statement at prom. This jaw-dropping, luminescent deep red mermaid dress will turn heads all night. With bold, sparkling floral details that shimmer with each movement, this dress exudes confidence. We particularly love the way the roses add a flame-like look to the dress, perfect for fiery Aries.




April 20 - May 20



Ruled by Venus, Tauruses appreciate beauty in their life, while their grounding earth element keeps them relaxed and laid-back.
