How you dress to your prom begins from the very moment you decide which style of dress you want to wear, till you make up your mind about the accessories, shoes, and hairstyle you want to rock to the party. The plethora of choices in prom dresses can easily be confusing as most of them are fashionable. Finding the right dress is only half the battle since there are still so many choices you have to make even after you find “the one.”
Whether you settle for a long dress or mini dress, make sure that the rest of your selections complement it perfectly for an all rounded glamorous look. Here are excellent tips on how to glamorize your look depending on the dress you are going to wear for a classy rather than sheepish look.
- Know what type of accessory to choose
When choosing your accessories, make sure you blend your jewellery well with the colour of your dress. For example, if your dress is glitter-free, simply choose your accessory of choice. But if your dress has sparkling embellishments, always opt for jewellery of the same sheen.
- Choose your footwear correctly
Although heels used to be the only acceptable formal footwear, today, flats are becoming more and more flattering and can be styled for night-out events including prom night. Focusing on the rich details can be an excellent start to fashion with flats. Take a look at your prom dress and take its design into account when choosing footwear. For example, long prom dresses go well with heels since you do not want to be mopping the floor with the helm.
- Handbags vs. wristlets
Handbags are exclusively designed to bring out an extra feminine and elegant look. Your handbag can be printed or plain or embroidered with exquisite details like jewels, and laces. The choice of colour will vary depending on the gown and the accessories you choose.
As long as they come in a discrete design, rings are definitely allowed to a prom night. However, you need to create a balance and harmony between colours, sizes, and details. Opt for a delicate piece to bring out a romantic and feminine look. If other elements of your look are simplistic for example your gown or hairstyle, a shinier piece such as double rings with jewels and sparkles will do the trick.
- Earrings vs. Necklaces
You need to be careful with every single detail of your earring, necklace, hairstyle, and prom dress. Balance them out nicely. You can pick one body part to glam up whether it’s your ears or neck and relax on everything else. It is also an excellent idea to leave your neck bare if you decide on earings. However, if you choose the necklace, wear the smallest earrings you can find.
Your hairstyle look largely depends on your personality, the formality, and style of your prom dress and your hair length and type. If your dress is classic with simple skinny straps, consider wearing your hair in a loose, unfussy knot. If your dress is sleeveless, pull your hair all the way up into a high and sleek knot to keep the focus on that area of your dress.
