When you understand what to look for, picking a prom gown can be one of the most fun experiences of your high school life. You can look beautiful on a budget when you stick to a couple of simple rules.
Choosing the right color for your prom dress will do wonders in the way you look. A color that complements your hair and skin color is a perfect match. Not only will this color highlight your attributes but it will also make you stunning. You can also consider the color of the theme and the season. Don’t forget to have your prom date wear accessories the same color as your dress.
Picking a dress size, pick a dress that fits your body properly. Do not get a gown that is one size smaller or bigger than your actual size. A too tight dress will give you difficulties in breathing and will emphasize your flab and bulges. Now you can start thinking about what kind of dress you want, according to how formal the dress code usually is. Search for floor length gowns and elegant heels if it’s a very formal occasion, but for more casual dances, short dresses are okay. Also decide what shape you want. Several dresses are fitted, while others flow away from the body. There are countless strap options, from one-shoulder to halter to totally strapless. Know what types of dresses you want so you can go straight to those when you start shopping.
A great shoe for prom is important. Pick a heel length that you are comfortable with. Whether it is low, medium, or high heels. If you are not a heels person, dressy sandals are suitable. What is important in a shoe is that you are comfortable in wearing and dancing in it.
Keep in mind that your look in this prom dance will be immortalized by pictures in your yearbook so it’s safer to stick with timeless and classic pieces. You can even re-use them if you are a bridesmaid or a flower girl at a friend’s wedding. Sure, it’s a good thing to be sporting a fad but these trends fade away soon so it’s better to avoid them.
Accessories are a must add-on as well. You can either choose a classic or stylish accessory, based on your budget and preferences. You can do or have somebody do your hair and makeup. Use only light makeup that will accentuate your attributes. Your makeup should match the color of your dress. In your hairstyle, select something that’s not too formal or too casual. You should also have your nails done especially if you are going to use open-toed sandals. You should look good and be clean all over.
Good underwear is also significant. Be sure to wear a strapless bra if your gown is strapless. A dangling bra strap doesn’t look nice. Also, be sure that there are no panty lines on your back part. If you’re well-prepared for your prom, definitely nothing will fail. Go and have a good time!
