prom outfit ideas10.05.2011
So many of you asked for some suggestions on what to wear to prom, so I thought I’d make a post about it. These are my top 5 prom outfit ideas!
As you can see, you can easily take a dress/skirt/pants and dress it up with some heels and jewelry and wear your hair up. I made 2 versions of each outfit just to show you that you don’t have to wear a dress, heels and heavy make-up if it’s not you. You can also take the same outfit and dress it down with flats, your hair down and adding a punk rock-ish feeling to it and still be classy and cute!
Since you want to look as pretty as possible, don’t go wild while picking your prom outfit. One day when you look back you want to think “This is gorgeous.” instead of “What the hell was I thinking?!”. So keep it simple and neutral. Stay true to your own style. If you want, add a touch of neon, a great piece of jewelry, a cute clutch, a flower headband just to spice things up a bit.
As far as prom hair and make-up go, remember – less is indeed more. If you’re not used to wearing heavy liner and fake lashes, this is not the time to experiment. As I said, you wanna look beautiful and have a good time not having to check your mirror every 5 seconds to make sure your make-up is still in place.
If you’re planning on going to tanning or cosmetic salon, to the hairdresser’s for a haircut or to dye your hair, do it at least 2 weeks before the big night! If something goes wrong, you’ll have plenty of time to fix it.
Hope I helped! I wish you all much luck finding that perfect prom outfit. Go shopping; play dress up with your friends; find out what looks best on you and work it, own it! And remember, at the end of the day it’s not so much about what you wore, it’s about having fun with your friends and enjoying yourself!
