Prom night is a right of passage that every woman looks forward to from the day she becomes aware that prom is even a thing. So, it is no exaggeration to say that many girls spend months planning for prom night. After all, they want it to be the perfect night they have always dreamed of. If you want to get ahead and ensure your prom night is a big success, you will need to be one of those girls who gets organized early. Prom comes along faster than you think, so here are some tips to help you get prepared:
Planning Your Prom Style
Perhaps most important of all is your prom night look. You want to look fantastic on the night, and in the subsequent pictures, you look back on to remember the glory days, so you need to start planning your prom look now.
First and foremost, you need to think about the dress. Prom dresses come in all manner of shapes, sizes, and styles, which means that you need to work out what suits you. Red prom dresses from Peaches Boutique, for example, are perfect for complimenting dark skin, but can also create a really dramatic look on girls with really pale skin, providing they are accessorized well. Light colors, on the other hand, are great for girls with cooler skin tones.
In terms of style, longer prom dresses are more sophisticated, whereas shorter styles bring a sense of fun. It’s really up to you to play with various colors and styles to see what suits best, but be sure to get a second opinion from trusted friends to avoid a prom night design disaster!
A perfect prom dress can be ruined baby a poor choice of underwear. The last thing you want is your bra straps showing or your black undies showing through your white dress. Be prepared and purchase appropriate prom night underwear (a slip would be useful) to avoid any prom night wardrobe malfunctions.
You will probably want to wear heels with your prom dress, but try to be sensible. You don’t want to make a fool of yourself by falling over ion the dancefloor, so choose shoes with a sensible heel size, which either match or compliment your dress and try to wear them a few times before prom night to avoid blisters, tumbles and any other feet-related disasters you can think of.
Once you’ve picked the perfect prom dress and shoes, try to find a few accessories to match. When it comes to prom, less is more, so perhaps choose a nice simple necklace, or a vintage brooch and maybe a jeweled hair clip, along with a purse that matches your dress, and avoid covering yourself from head to toe in jewels!
Intricate updos always look sophisticated, especially if you have really long hair, which can look unruly when left down at formal occasions. If you want something really complicated, be sure to book a hair stylist in advance of prom night, so that you don’t miss out. If you want to do your own hair, check out Pinterest for ideas, and enlist a friend, or your mom, to help you create the perfect look!
