No matter when your prom season is, your goal is to look absolutely fabulous. You want to look like a Prom Do and not a Prom Don’t in those fashion lists. Sometimes, even the best intentions take a wrong turn. Follow these fashion and beauty tips so you remain fashion-forward andstunning on prom night and not embarrassed or freaky instead.
- Buy the right dress so you’ll look sexy without looking trashy. Show off a tiny waist with a sexy two-piece that showcases a touch of your bare midriff or a slimming jersey dress with side cut-outs. Alternatively, you could highlight toned shoulders and back with a one-shoulder gown or a sexy-low back dress, or lean legs with a thigh-high slit. It’s important not to overdo too many aspects sexy aspects in one dress. See the online brochure of sexy prom dresses to look at an extensive selection of dresses.
- Follow steps to avoid wardrobe malfunctions at the prom. Make sure the dress you select works for your body type. For example, use caution with strapless gowns if you have a full bust. Consider opting for a spaghetti strap dress or a one-shoulder dress for more support. If you absolutely want a strapless dress, use some double-sided tape to keep your dress attached to your bra so you so you don’t show too much cleavage.
- Accessorize your prom dress but plan accordingly. If you choose a simple and elegant gown, you may want to add more bling or a statement necklace, hair jewelry and dangly earrings. However, if the bodice features embellishments, consider skipping the necklace, and just adding simple earrings and a cuff bracelet.
- Plan your hairstyle and make-up ahead of time. If you’re having it professionally done, see if you can have a trial scheduled. Try to select a hairstyle that will compliment your dress. If you have a strapless dress, try either messy tousled waves or an edgy up-to, whereas if you have high bateau neckline, you should opt for a softer bun or twist. For trendy one-shoulder dresses, consider styling your hair back into a braid or pulled back on the opposite side. For make-up, try using fake eyelashes instead of mascara so they don’t run. Consider using a lighter lipstick so it won’t stain your skin or your date’s when you kiss him.
- Bring a classic purse filled with an emergency beauty kit. Bring a miniature can of hair spray and a few bobby pins, in case you need to repair your hair. In addition, bring eye shadow, dark eyeliner, lipstick, and a few cotton Q-tips to repair and retouch any make-up.
- Bring an extra pair of shoes. While sparkly heels may be pretty, you may want to find a more practical pair in pumps or sandals or even hide a pair of ballet flats in your stuff. Unless you buy the most comfortable pair of shoes, you’ll probably want to change shoes.
Be camera ready. Look relaxed, have fun and smile while you have the night of your life. Often, that is the real goal of prom.
