Finding that perfect prom dress to stand out at prom is a mission that can take a gal months. Two-piece? Lace? Open back? High-low? So many styles and trends to choose from. Well, we have one new trend to add to your list that is as unique as it comes! Many celebrities have been rocking the trend lately, and Selena Gomez is the latest. The trend is capes. Capes, cape dresses, and capes as dresses is a look that has become more and more popular in the fashion world, and the look can now even be found in prom dresses.
Selena recently wore the hot new trend while out on the town in Paris. The celebrity wore an elegant black Vionnet dress with a chiffon cape over top of it. It's a totally dramatic, yet so classy look that gives a whole new name to wearing a ball gown.
While wearing capes with dresses is still a very new trend and mainly only seen on celebrities, there are a couple of ways you can snag this unique look for prom. Check out two options below to take your prom dress to the next level.

Johnathan Kayne 553 couldn't be more regal! This Oscars inspired dramatic design is a long sleeve stretch jersey gown that features intricate A/B crystal beading and a removable flowing jersey floor length cape.
While the main driving factor behind rocking a cape with your prom dress may be to get that fashion-forward praise, we also love the cape idea because it gives you two looks in one. Wear the gown with or without the cape for two stunning looks throughout your prom night.
