Prom Dress Inspiration Straight From The 2014 Teen Choice Awards

Even if prom seems far off, it's never too early to get great style ideas! Before you go shopping for your prom dress, get inspired by these beautiful Teen Choice Awards looks:

Taylor Swift: Crop top
Taylor Swift went a unique route and opted for a flirty green crop top with a matching green flared skirt. The two-part dress is a trendy look right now, and it was also rocked by Kim Kardashian at the award show. Swift kept her look simple with a pair of hoop earrings and bright yellow pumps.

Shop two-piece dresses!

Ariana Grande: White
There's certainly nothing wrong with a bold-colored dress. However, you shouldn't count out a neutral outfit, which can be just as show-stopping. Ariana Grande stepped out in a gorgeous white Georges Chakra Couture mini complete with sparkling embellishments. She finished her outfit with a pair of nude heels and her signature high ponytail.

Shop short white dresses!

Sarah Hyland: Sequins
"Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland rocked a sleek, black sequined slip dress. She kept the rest of her look just as classic with a simple ponytail and black strappy sandals. Never be afraid to opt for sequins in your formal dress, but if you do, keep the rest of the outfit understated just like Hyland.

Top 3 looks of the 2014 Emmys

Uzo Aduba
This award-winning actress may act a little crazy on the hit series "Orange is the New Black," but she was the essence of sophistication on the red carpet. You can get Uzo Aduba's look by donning a fitted strapless crimson gown at your prom this spring. Pair it with simple gold jewelry for a stunning effect.

Julia Roberts
If you want to make a statement, short prom dresses are the way to go! Of course, you still want the look to be formal, so follow Julia Roberts's lead by making sure your dress has plenty of embellishments. Whether you opt for intricate beading or tons of sparkles, you'll be the center of attention.

Allison Williams
Sometimes a girl just wants to rock a traditional ball gown at her prom. Allison Williams knows how to update this classic style, and you can steal some tips from her princess-like Emmy look. When searching for a ball gown-style prom dress, stick to fabrics with a neutral hue. Add a pop of color with a bow or belt made of ribbon.

Summer style trend: Colored lace dresses

Attention all lace-loving ladies! There's a new trend you'll want to keep in mind as you pick out formal dresses for the events you're attending this summer: colored lace. Yes, this elegant material is getting an update, and you'll definitely want to give this modern take on a classic look a try. Here are three ways to wear this vibrant style:

1. All-over color
If you want to go all-out with this trend, you can't beat the look of all-over colored lace. Because this is such a bold choice, it's important that you choose a dress with a high neckline - you don't want too much going on!

2. Peek-a-boo
For a more flirty take on colored lace, wear a gown that has cut-outs covered in the elegant material. This will create a peek-a-boo effect that's sure to make a lasting impression at any event you attend this summer.

3. Layered look
There are two ways to take on the layered look: Search for a gown that has a slip underneath a dress made of colored lace, or pair the lace with another type of fabric in the same bold color (think a pink lace top with a fuchsia taffeta skirt).

3 Must-Haves For a Destination Wedding

If you and your other half are choosing to jet set off to a faraway tropical location to tie the knot, here are a few must-haves you'll want for your destination wedding:

1. A beachy gown
A princess ball gown might be beautiful, but it may not be the most appropriate choice for the beach. Avoid sweating up at the altar by choosing from destination wedding dresses that can really breathe. Opt for lightweight fabrics like chiffon, charmeuse and georgette that will blow beautifully with the soft beach breeze.

2. A wedding welcome bag
It's likely that your guests don't know a whole lot about the location where they're staying for your nuptials. therefore, a wedding welcome bag can provide them with important information like nearby attractions, great restaurants and a schedule of the day's events.

3. Functional favors
Consider giving out wedding favors that will come in handy during your ceremony and reception. For example, personalized bottles of sunscreen will keep your guests protected from the sun's rays while you exchange vows with your fiance. You can also set up a table filled with sunglasses, which your guests can help themselves to. This way, the sun's glare won't get in the way of your wedding day!
