Ah, prom and wedding season is almost here, and with it comes the most stressful but lovely quest for the ideal gown. It’s not easy to choose prom dresses because you want it to be attractive, sophisticated, and comfortable to dance in.
Keep your options open and flexible while shopping for a prom dress; don’t get locked in a flowery or black dress code. Who knows what other incredible fashions you’ll come upon AND how they’ll look on you. Tell you what, I’m telling you… I’m a walking billboard for theory and practice clothing being two distinct things. Whatever you pick, just be sure of yourself.
The anticipation of donning a prom gown begins well before the event. It all starts with the quest for the perfect dress, which these days is almost always done online. So here are a few pointers for finding the ideal prom gown:
Make A Financial Plan
Of course, this is one of the most important factors to consider when purchasing anything, so make sure you receive a good deal. The key is to get something that isn’t too pricey but appears to be.
Invest in quality, even if it means going for a designer, and keep in mind that you’ll only wear the dress once or twice. If you locate something that looks great and isn’t too expensive, fast fashion may be an alternative; otherwise, buy wisely and for quality.
Choose Your Colors
Where should I start with: blue, green, or red, or the traditional black or white? Also, pink and sequins are extremely in these days, so good luck narrowing it down. My advice is to choose a color that flatters you, and if you’re a traditionalist, stick to the LBD, but if you’re more daring, go for vibrant colors and make a statement.
Take Into Account Your Body Type
This is complete nonsense, but just part of it. I mean, recognize your advantages and make the most of them, but bear in mind that a mermaid dress, because it elongates the body, is usually fairly attractive on many body types. The upper half is where the magic happens: totally covered, v-plunging cap sleeves.
Before you get to the dress, know your angels and try on like a madwoman. Also, remember that tailoring and changing whatever you buy to make it fit you better is a good idea. And keep in mind that it’s all about the night, the enjoyment, and the memories, so don’t worry about the rest. If you’re happy with yourself and your outfit, the rest will fall into place.
