Exactly one year ago today, H&M launched their first eco-friendly red carpet line, just in time for Prom. We can hardly believe it’s that time again, but the retailers new Conscious Exclusive collection sure is jogging our memories. Time to pick out your dresses, ladies! If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly option, H&M is a great place to start. The collection is made up of dresses that run the gamut from ultra dramatic to cute and simple, plus everything else in between (and rompers!), and everything is made from sustainable materials such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, tencel, and recycled polyamide. Offering up some of the biggest trends of the year—cutouts, graphic accents, and sheer—the collection is a great way to shop responsibly without sacrificing a hint of style. One of our favorite pieces is the high-necked, completely open-backed dusty rose gown, which features a slim A-line silhouette and is modern and romantic. It’s also made of 100% recycled polyester, so you can feel good about your shopping choices while you’re dancing the night away. If you’re looking to go even edgier, though, the cross-backed navy romper would be sure to cause a scene. We love the idea of wearing a romper to prom, because not only is it totally different, but it’s a great opportunity to show off some fierce accessories.

If dramatic isn’t your thing so much (and we TOTALLY get not wanting to take a big risk on your big night), there are a number of classic options to choose from as well. We’re getting some serious Blair Waldorf vibes from the pink, cocktail length, embellished dress, which is modern enough, with its sculptural pleats and high neckline, to look fashion-forward while still being totally classic and elegant. Also engaging that princess inside of us is the VERY red carpet tulle gown in soft sea foam green, which we can already tell would be the cause for a Cinderella moment or two.
