Hottest Trend for Prom 2022: NEON
The hottest prom trend for 2022 is bold and unapologetic color. Fellow designer Joshua McKinley and myself have been on the neon trend for a while, but I am predicting an even bigger year for neon colors in 2022! These styles are some of the best (and brightest) for 2022 prom from our best selling and new collections! With bright colors from pink to yellow, everything you need is here for this springs hottest trends.
Kicking it off with a Joshua style that is perfect for prom! This keyhole lycra gown comes in 3 brilliant neon colors: fuchsia, turquoise, and lime. The great appeal of neon fashion is that the tones and colors naturally boost your mood. I always feel a positive energy when seeing our girls trying on this special fitted prom dress for the first time. Style 2401 is truly a unique prom style as it features a cross-over halter with a removable broach so you can style it YOUR way.
I am telling y’all, I knew that neon was youthful and sexy for years. This staple Johnathan Kayne style 2037 has been a best selling gown in my collection for multiple seasons! Truth is this gown remains one of our girls, and retailers, favorite dresses every year. This perfect prom and pageant cross-over is great for standing out, even with the limitation of school dress codes. The halter neck helps cover up to fit your school, or pageant, guidelines, and the fit and vibrancy make you feel beautiful. This sexy style is available in so many colors, including this bright fuchsia, electric blue, and NOW a bright and unique lime just in time for prom season.
When I started brainstorming sexy neon, style 2405 is the first design and color to come to mind. This vibrant dress deserves to be on a billboard. Forget the neon sign, all you need this this stretch knit V-neck. This neon yellow colorway is even more stunning in person. You just have to give this dress a try-on while doing your prom shopping. I promise it’ll be hard to find another dress as perfectly youthful, and unique.
One shoulder styles have been selling like hot-cakes. Let me tell you that style 2318 will never disappoint. As seen on Katelyn Brown in Kiwi, this style is a knockout on any body type. We’ve been selling this style to prom girls from a size two to a twenty-two. There is no way you won’t swoon over these bright beauties available in delicious colors like yellow, turquoise, kiwi, and hot coral. Shop this style soon before it’s sold out for the season.
Of course we had to include another Joshua dress that has been killing the neon fashion game for a few seasons. This flattering dress accentuates all the right curves. There’s no better way to show off your waist while wearing bold color like style 2023. The gun metal beads and details make this gown pretty, dare I say, badass. Not only will you look like a baddie in this at prom, but you’ll be totally on the neon trend! As much as I love this gown in yellow, there’s a dynamite hot coral that I couldn’t recommend more.
Pantsuit sets and pink is a match made in trending heaven. What could possibly rise to the top of the neon trend faster than a two-piece set in a stretchy, ultra comfortable fabric? That’s why style 2317 is at the top of the style list for bangin’ neon styles. These bell bottom pants are perfect for elongating the leg; and nothing is better than being able to comfortably bust a move when you’re wearing a color as energetic as this fluorescent fuchsia. The little ones aren’t excluded from this special style. Check out style C115 in the Sugar Kayne Line.
Let’s be real, we’re all #obsessed with this neon hot short. There is no wrong time to wear style 2319. I could style this romper for any occasion. Perfect for the pageant fun fashion, the non-traditional prom girl, or even for GNO. The sheer overskirt takes this fashion from flirty to fabulous, or vice versa. Perfect in two neon colors: hot coral and neon yellow.

Jumpsuits are the hottest new style for women! So of course Johnathan Kayne had to put together some of the greatest jumpsuits. These are the JK’s picks for the most “instagramable” pantsuits.
Simple is simply over-rated. This style takes the most classic details and transforms the look into a chic and modern design. The asymmetrical style is effortless and one of a kind. Keep it funky, and play into the “boss babe” vibes with the gold stud accents. We love how cool this style looks when worn with fun 80’s inspired hair and make-up. Making this modern piece have some vintage flare is iconic. The pantsuit is a strong women’s look, so take it to the next level in style 2323!
Rompers are the new jumpsuit. Make it fun and sexy with this hot short style 2319. The off the shoulder look is classic elegance and the shorts and transparent detachable skirt adds a flirty edge. Being a neon piece adds to the trendy nature of the look. Neon is so in for young women, and we are loving it! There is nothing more bold than bright colors! We loved seeing all the beautiful girls rocking this shorts style at homecoming this year.
Cool girls wear RAINBOW! This Sugar Kayne style is “tie-dye” for. The dreamy overskirt is perfect for any fun fashion, or just to strut your stuff at your next birthday party. Bold fashion is for girls of all ages. We love how sweet and sassy style C144. The pleated bodice adds just the right amount of style, and the one shoulder makes this outfit comfy for all little ones. We recommend this look in pink and blue!
This studded show stopper is perfect for the inner rockstar. Talk about a power suit, this flattering jumpsuit hugs the body in all the right places, and the pattern helps to flatter the body. The illusion belt snatches in the waist, and the diagonal print lengthens the leg. We are obsessed with style 2328 in black, but white is the perfect look for pageant interview, or even for the cool and alternative bride! Where would you wear this style?
We had to create the perfect jumpsuit for the retro babes. This 70s inspired bell bottom look is not only comfortable, but flexible for any event. Dress it up with accessories for a stunning look, or wear it out on the town for GNO! Either way you are sure to enjoy every moment in this stretchy style.

Available for littles in the Sugar Kayne line: style C115.
Sparkle from head to toe in Sugar Kayne style C131. These sequin fringe bell bottoms are unstoppable on stage, and the high low top gives you the extra confidence to STRUT your stuff! All three colors (white, ice blue, and pink) are perfectly paired with the unicorn sequin, and who doesn’t love unicorn colors! Make sure you snatch this style for your next pageant.
Va-va voom! This style is ultra sexy! Featuring an open back, and deep-V you will feel so powerful in this pantsuit style. The luxurious velvet fabric is like butter, and feels great on.
