Two-piece ensembles are increasingly popular as they offer exceptional value for money, providing separate pieces that can be paired with other items to create a new outfit. Finding the best of the best compiled together can make your selection much easier. Here we focus on the top seven long red two-piece dresses for prom, in a choice of three different silhouettes, brought to you from top prom designers Sherri Hill, JVN and Clarisse Couture.
The Trumpet Silhouette
The pillar box red of this two-piece Sherri Hill 52006 prom dress (below) is very alluring, promising an evening of excitement. It features an asymmetrically ruched sleeveless crop top with a striking surplice sweetheart neckline. Spaghetti straps lead into the semi-open back, adorned with an oversize bow. The bow showcases long streamers cascading over the bare midriff and the back of the striking trumpet skirt with a luscious sweep train.
Another two-piece flaunting a trumpet silhouette is the Clarisse Couture 4808 long sleeved prom dress, shown below. The skirt is styled in a dramatic red print Mikado, offering a feel of grandeur. It is paired with a black crop top fashioned in subtly beaded lace over a sweetheart lining, creating an illusion bateau neckline framed with long sheer lace sleeves. Eyelash trimmed scallops accentuate the midriff.
The Ball Gown Silhouette
The gorgeous Sherri Hill 51632 ball gown shown below pairs a sleek off-the-shoulder crop top with a cascading skirt featuring a tonal beaded waistband and concealed side seam pockets. The skirt is lightly gathered at the waist. The silky sheen of the fabric feels fabulous. This two-piece dress takes a classic ball gown and gives it a contemporary twist.
Featuring a gloriously full tulle skirt, this red, two-piece JVN 50742 ballgown from Jovani combines sophistication with whimsy. The crop top showcases cut-in shoulders framing the high neckline, and lace-up side cutouts with tie streamers accent the side bodice.
The Fitted Silhouette
Bold and shimmering beading embellishes the cold shoulder bodice of this Sherri Hill 52009 prom dress. A cut out back and a halter strap neckline is featured on this beautiful, red two-piece dress. The waistband of the sequin studded skirt mirrors the beading on the top. The full-length skirt with a mid-thigh side slit and sweep train completes the slim fitted silhouette.
Fashioned in beaded red lace, this Clarisse Couture 4948 two-piece prom dress pairs a full-length fitted skirt and a sleeveless crop top. The top showcases exposed boning, sheer side panels and a sweetheart neckline. Dual braided spaghetti straps span the shoulders and crisscross into the semi-open back. The skirt features a mid-thigh center front slit and cascades airily into a brush train. This outfit combines the romantic appeal of lace with sex appeal.
Sheer cutout side panels, accented with beaded ties, frame the sleeveless crop top of this red Sherri Hill 51840 two-piece prom dress. The midriff-revealing fitted top features a V-neckline and a deep V-back. The side bodice ties are mirrored on the side cutouts below the waistline of the full-length fitted skirt, finishing in a sweep train.
