It's February once again and every time the calendar hits this month, besides Valentines Day, I think about proms! Prom is my favorite time of my high school life. This is the time where everyone's all dolled up looking glamorous dancing and enjoying the night out! It's the time when you and your friends all look pretty with your handsome prom dates, taking tons of pictures and enjoying each other's company. Of course for girls, prom is a big deal, no HUGE! You have to figure out what shoes to wear, you have to book your salon services, have your mani pedi and footspa, buy your accessories, and the most important thing of all, choosing the perfect prom dress!
If I could just have another take in life where I can go to proms just like in high school I would.. but I know right now it's pretty impossible because I'm about to finish college. LOL. Haha anyway, I want every girl to be PROMtastic so here's my few tips on how to choose the perfect prom dress!
If you want to look Princess-y on your prom night, don't settle for the usual balloon gowns in pastel colors. Honestly, sometimes these gowns make you look fat. Wearing a ball gown is very tricky, you have to consider the material and the style that you're wearing. For a pretty princess-y look, check out this red ball gown from Sherri Hill... Looks classy right? I think this is the perfect ball gown if you want to achieve that Fairy Tale look! The upper part of the gown is fully embellished and fits your upper body. It shows your curves even though you're wearing a ball gown.
If you want to look simple yet glamorous, try something shimmery, long and flowy. With all these glitters, you just need to throw on your favorite drop earrings and dramatic make up then you're good to go! It's obviously not your ordinary prom dress, plus this gown will make you look tall and slender! This will surely turn all eyes on you.
If you're curvy or slightly weight-challenged and want to hide those curves, try wearing an empire cut gown from Sherri Hill with sleeves just like the one in this picture. It may look conservative but the plunging neckline and the sequined upper part of the gown will definitely make you look fabulously sexy! Another tip about this gown? the empire cut will surely hide your tummy;)
If your prom doesn't require wearing long gowns, you can wear a dress something like this one from Sherri Hill. It looks unique because of the fringe details and it looks sexy because of the embellished corset-like top. Lay off with the usual balloon type of cocktail dresses, unless your prom's theme is Grease or something similar to those type of clothing..if not just scratch it off the list of your choices. It's not very flattering and very overrated.
You can also rock the night with this black sequined high low dress from Sherri Hill. The high low trend has been popular for the past few months so why not try this trend on your prom night and lay off with the ball gowns and serpentine dresses. You can surely dance the night off with this cocktail dress!:)
Want a dramatic red carpet look? Try wearing these length-y gowns with embellishments. They key to a red carpet look is a simple yet glamorous looking gown, dramatic make up and less usage of accessories. Let your gown do the job! Check out these pretty gowns for your red carpet look!
One shoulder and high slit looks like Heidi Klum in the recent Golden Globes!
Especially this white one!:)
Black never gets old! But you can try adding a little twist by wearing a black sequined dress! Not your ordinary black dress eh?:)
I hope my post is not too late for your prom preparations.
