Looking for the best prom dress websites to shop online? Well, you have come to the right place! Here at Teen Vogue, we know that bringing your A-game to prom night is a must. 

Prom is not only the night you celebrate surviving the entire school year, it's also a reminder to look back on all the things you've accomplished and take a much-needed break before you embark on the next chapter. But, before you hit the dance floor, you'll need to find the perfect prom dress (or prom suit), and that's where these prom websites come in. 

This season we’re looking forward to seeing dresses that go big on sequins, tulle, and beaded embellishments. Other styles that will be trendy in 2023 include long cottagecore prom dress, Wednesday-inspired gothic gowns, and Barbiecore pink dresses. 

We rounded up the best online retailers where you can find countless outfit options, from cheap prom dresses on Amazon, to other trustworthy prom dress websites like Lulus, Nordstrom, Macy's, and David's Bridal. 

Just don't forget to add heels (or prom sneakers!) to your cart so you're ready when the big night comes!

Our Top Picks: 

  • Best overall prom dress website: ASOS
  • Best unique prom dress website: Rent the Runway 
  • Best affordable prom dress website: Lulus
  • Best prom dress website with fast delivery: Amazon 


You buy basically everything on Amazon, so why not your prom dress? Particularly if time is of the essence (hello, two-day shipping), Amazon is a go-to stop for all your prom night needs. You'll find plenty of affordable picks, from ball gowns to cheap cocktail dresses in various styles and colors. However, we do recommend reading the reviews to get an accurate description of the sizing and colors before making a purchase.
