How To Choose A Prom Dress?

Prom night is one of the most important events of senior year. The prom dress can be compared to a wedding dress regarding its importance in the grandness of the evening. So many pictures will be taken and you will want to look back at those pictures years later and know that you picked the perfect prom dress for you.

Get excited! Enjoy this part of the “best night of High School.” Its something you looked to for years and you want to make the most of it. My advice is to start early on the prom dress shopping because there are thousands of girls that will be hunting down the perfect prom dress too.

Here are some things to think about when picking the dress.

  • Consider your own individual style.
  • Your body shape has a lot to do with the style of dress you wear to prom.
  • What is the theme of your prom?
  • Choose a color that you look good in and that complements your features.
  • The hairstyle you’re thinking about.
  • How much is your budget for your prom dress?
  • What kind of trendy prom dresses are popular this year?

How Long Should A Prom Dress Be?

There are no specific rules regarding how long a prom dress should be unless the school has specific rules. Most school dress codes for prom will not allow a short dress that is micro mini. You will want to choose something you like and that you will feel comfortable wearing.

Long prom dresses are more traditional for a prom dress choice. There are elegant styles that are timeless. If you decide on a long prom dress you will get that chance to dress up like never before. It’s fun and exciting to dress up to the max.

Short prom dresses are chic and modern but depending on the style and material can still be quite fashionable for prom. There are a lot of short prom dress that are semi formal. Also consider the fact that you may have more of an opportunity to re-wear a short prom dress to another occasion in your life.

If you’re unsure of which length of prom dress you should wear, try a variety of both styles on. Regardless of the style you decide on, you should feel comfortable, beautiful and confident in what you wear for prom night.

Picking a Prom Dress

They want the latest styles in prom dresses and they certainly don’t want the same prom dresses that their peers are wearing. Individuality and exclusivity are two of the most important factors that these girls consider when choosing their perfect prom dresses. Unfortunately for these young ladies, it is highly likely that at least one pair of duplicate prom dresses will make their debut at the prom.

Vintage prom dresses are all the rage these days. Simple and elegant prom dresses can be just as dramatic as some of the racier styles that we have also been seeing more and more of. The more traditional your prom dress, the less likely it is that you will see it on someone else at your prom. If you can get your hands on a prom dress that is authentically vintage, instead of a reproduction, then you are sure to be wearing a one of a kind at your prom.

If the unthinkable happens and the girl you love to hate walks in looking like your twin, don’t panic. You should be prepared, plan ahead and have accessories on hand that can change your look in an instant. For instance, a simple vintage strapless can be transformed with some elbow length gloves and a shawl. Whatever you do, don’t let this kind of fashion fright ruin your fun for the evening.

Prom dresses can end up being a great source of angst if you take everything too seriously. Prom is supposed to be fun and shopping for prom dresses can either be some of the most fun you have had all year, or some of the most intense stress you have felt all year. It’s all in your attitude so try to be light hearted and have the time of your life.
