2020 Matric Dance Dress Trends... Make A Statement!

Can you believe that it’s almost time for your matric dance?  It’s so exciting! You’ve been dreaming about this night forever and just want it to be perfect. And it should be! You should have the perfect hairstyle, makeup, date and- most importantly- the best matric dance dress. However, finding the right matric dance dress can be stressful. From styles to silhouettes, colours to cuts, or sensual to simple, there are so many options!

It’s never too early to start planning what matric dance dress look you want to go for- with this year being as hectic and jam-packed as is, the worst thing you can do is to procrastinate your dress search and end up in panic mode the month before your dance. Don’t do that to yourself!

To give you a head start in to your matric dance dress search, this year we bring you 5 of the hottest trends to hit the dress scene. We’ve also picked out some of our latest styles from our 2020 matric farewell dress collection, which features romantic to edgy and a few in between.

The Classic Ballgown

Ballgowns are back! Well…they never really left. Ballgowns have been a leading matric dance dress trend for years- not only do they make you look like a princess, but they’re flattering on any body shape!

This year, detailed ball gowns like our Lace and Glitter Ball Gown matric dress are all the rage. This classic silhouette features lace applique with a sweetheart neckline and an open back to give you a modern princess look… with a touch of glam!

Head-to-Toe Sequins

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle? From iridescent fabric, to seuins and shimmery metallics, this year’s matric dance dresses are brighter than your future!

If you’re looking to sparkle and shine on the dance floor, then this matric dance dress is for you! Our figure-hugging Black and Gold Fully Sequined Matric Dance Dress is for the girls who want to flaunt their curves! Featuring a thigh-high side slit (perfect for showing of those legs), as well as cut-out details on the open-back, you will render your date- and every one else- speechless!

Red Carpet Glam

Come matric farewell time, everyone will be asking themselves the same question: “Is she going to her matric dance or to the Grammy’s?” One of the biggest trends for matric dresses in 2020 is red carpet glamour! Think lots of tulle, embellishments, form-fitting silhouettes, spaghetti straps and a burst of RED colours!

This red Sweetheart Tulle Dress is all about romance! This dreamy style dress features a sweetheart neckline, floral embroidered ruched bodice, complemented by a glitter lining. With a tulle skirt, this dress will give you freedom of movement on the dance floor, taking you from dinner to dance in style!

The Overskirt

Bring a whole new level of style to your 2020 matric farewell with an overskirt dress! Overskirts are a current trend because they can make anyone look like royalty without being too “extra.” These dresses can either be short and playful or long and sleek, giving you options to play around with.

Our One Shoulder Glitter Short Dress from our latest 2020 matric dance collection is the best example of this trend. This dress features a one-shoulder sweetheart neckline with draped chiffon and beautiful embellishment detail to give you a glamorous but romantic look.  The dress also has a chiffon over skirt to give you two looks in one. One thing is for sure: this matric dance dress style is unique, and will let you shine, flawlessly!

Shoulder Game

Show off your flirty side with this 80’s inspired trend as Off-the-shoulder dresses make another comeback in 2020! This classic trend is great for drawing attention to your face and shoulders, giving you a sexy but sophisticated look.

Our Off-the-Shoulder Black & Red Ombre dress subtly shows skin, without revealing too much, and features a wrap bodice and an A-line silhouette; perfect for girls who want an edgy but fairy tale look. This dress’s side–slit allows you to reveal your inner goddess with a playful side!
