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.
