When many of us think of pageants, often one image comes to mind: dazzling white smiles, giant crowns, sashes and a gorgeous, glitzy dress. The dresses are definitely a huge part of a pageant, and finding the right one can be a major decision! Although pageant trends evolve over time, there are a few things that remain consistent across different times and pageants: Many women stick to a more fitted silhouette and almost all choose dresses that feature one solid color with plenty of embellishments.
Although color doesn’t seem like it would matter that much, apparently it does! Terani studied the winning dresses across several pageants in the last decade and found that white dresses won the most, more than twice the number of times as the next color, which was blue. For this reason, we’ve picked some of our favorite glamorous white dresses we think would be a big hit at your next pageant!
All of these gorgeous gowns can be found on the All The Rage website!
