17 Sexy Punk Rock Styles to Wear to Your Prom ...

By Lyndsie

I may be long past my prom days, but that doesn't mean that I don't still appreciate all the fun and excitement of prom season – mainly because the dresses are so fierce compared to what they were in the way-back days of the long ago time. I wore an unfortunate, offensively purple dresses to my prom. It was all sparkled overlay. I am not proud. If I could do it all over again, I'd go for a grungy punk princess prom look – like one of these epic ensembles.

1 Combat Boots and Tulle

Combat Boots and Tulle Is there a better combination? Honestly, I think combat boots and tulle are ideal for day-to-day wear. Love this look!

2 Lace and Fishnets

Lace and Fishnets This is a show-stopper. Who's thinking about wearing something like this to prom? 'cause you should definitely do it.

3 The Corset Dress

The Corset Dress Comfortable? No. Flattering? Universally.

4 The Darkest Fairy

The Darkest Fairy I have fallen in love with a dress. Actually, the whole look is gorgeous, the makeup and hair complement the dress perfectly, but I am all about the dress.

5 Denim and Tulle

Denim and Tulle The jacket needs a few more buttons, I think. Everything else is absolutely on-point for a punk prom, though.

6 Mad for Plaid

Mad for Plaid Emma, admittedly, was not going to prom, but her look here is easily copied and ideal for a polished punk look.

7 A Little Victorian

A Little Victorian The dress, the sleeves, the shoes, the knee socks! Love, love, love it!

8 Gothic Punk Rock

Gothic Punk Rock This dress is actually a work of art. Pure props to the designer. The bodice, the skirt, the accents – all flawless.

9 Those Tights

Those Tights The dress is fierce af, too, but those tights definitely add to it. I love that dark purple hue, as well – very dramatic.

10 Ruffles on Ruffles on Ruffles

Ruffles on Ruffles on Ruffles Admittedly, this is more goth than punk, but who cares? She is serving and we can all have a slice.

11 Blazer and Tulle

Blazer and Tulle Clearly, pairing tulle with something unexpected is a winning idea here. This reminds me of early '90s Courtney Love.

12 Simple but Not Plain

Simple but Not Plain This is chic, sleek, and sophisticated, but although it's just a little black dress, there's nothing plain about it. Absolutely nothing.

13 Go for Some Glitter

Go for Some Glitter Not a lot, you don't want to overwhelm your look with lots of glitter and sequins, but something like this with the right jacket and boots? That could work.

14 It Takes Backbone to Wear a Prom Dress like This

It Takes Backbone to Wear a Prom Dress like This Get it? I'm so funny!

15 Striped Perfection

Striped Perfection I adore this. Again, it's a bit more goth, but it reminds me of Tim Burton, so I'm a fan.

16 Sassy Ombre

Sassy Ombre I love this. I really love that she combines the brighter, lighter dress with dark tights and shoes.

17 A Softer Side of Punk

A Softer Side of Punk This is more punk-inspired than actually punk, but it's so pretty!
