Prom night is one of the first times in a teenage girl's life when she gets to experience the glamorous lifestyle of a princess. Fancy prom dresses, boys in tuxedos, and prom royalty all contribute to the larger-than-life feeling of the prom. At your prom, be sure to look your best and fully enjoy your night of glamour and royalty by following the tips below for a truly stunning look.
Start Preparing Early: Prom night only comes around every so often, and it is definitely worth the time invested in proper preparation. For the perfect look that is trendy and comfortable, you should begin checking out stores and boutiques for new prom dress styles at least three to four months before your prom. This will allow you to find the perfect dress without feeling stressed, rushed, or unprepared. By looking for your dress a couple of months before your prom, you will have time to schedule any necessary alterations for the perfect, tailored look. You will be able to try on dresses in a number of different colors and cuts to find the dress that was designed just for you and your body.
Preparing for the prom early also involves planning your date, scheduling any necessary beauty appointments, and shopping for your accessories. Each of these items is necessary to ensure the perfect prom experience and look. As an extra bonus, planning for prom early allows you to create an accurate budget so you can know just how much money you will need to earn (or beg your parents for) before the prom.
Find Your Perfect Prom Dress Look: Prom dresses come in a variety of different styles and cuts, ranging from over-the-top wild to simple and demure. To feel comfortable and look beautiful at the prom, it is important that you find a prom dress that is within your comfort zone, but slightly more glamorous than what you would normally wear. If you do not feel comfortable baring your back and shoulders or showing off several inches of your legs, you should not buy a prom dress that reveals these features. No matter how trendy and beautiful the dress is, if you do not feel comfortable in it, you will not feel beautiful. The last thing you want on your prom night is to spend the majority of the night in the bathroom adjusting your dress.
When shopping for a dress, you should trust your innate sense of style and fashion. Some colors and cuts will look more attractive on you than others, and you will likely be naturally drawn to these cuts and colors. Natural beauty always shines through the clearest and is the most attractive to young men.
Consider What to Wear Under the Dress: For the right look in your prom dress, you will need to think about what to wear on the inside and outside. A beautiful prom dress can be unfortunately marred by the wrong underwear and bra. Look for a bra that fits you well and is consistent with the style of your dress. This bra will save you from the embarrassment of falling or visible straps, so it is definitely worth the investment. You should also always remember to check for panty lines when you choose a pair of underwear to wear with your dress, especially if it is a sleek style. You might never have worn thong underwear before, but it may just be the best option for a sexy, smooth silhouette. Finally, if your prom dress is full in the skirt, you may need to purchase a full slip to help your dress fall just as it should. You can find full slips at many bridal and formal wear shops.
Involve Your Family and Friends: Your family and friends will definitely want to be involved in selecting your prom dress with you, and they can offer much more objective feedback on your favorite dresses than you can yourself. Consider taking your mom or your best friend with you when you shop for a dress. You know your mom would love to spend the time with you, and she may even help you pay for your dream dress. Plus, with your family and friends involved, you will have plenty of opportunities to borrow shoes, jewelry, and accessories. Borrowing these items can free up more of your budget for that designer dress you have been eyeing.
Keep the above tips in mind, and you will be sure to have an unforgettable prom night experience in a beautiful prom dress.
