Prom is probably one of the most exciting events if you are a teenager. Preparing for prom and getting everything ready and putting your outfit together can be stressful. That is why I prepared this guide for you and I hope you have an amazing prom!
First of all, I would like to talk about the length of the dresses. If you are short, I would recommend getting a shorter dress, because a long dress can make you visually even shorter. Something like this PRETTY SHORT AS PICTURE TAILOR MADE COCKTAIL PROM DRESS (LFNAG0037)
Another option is ELEGANT SHORT PURPLE TAILOR MADE COCKTAIL PROM DRESS (LFNAI0034), which is a very cute and breezy dress.
However, if you really don’t want a short dress, I would recommend getting a long dress, but something like this 2015 UK LONG GREEN TAILOR MADE EVENING PROM DRESS (LFNCE0005), where you can see the legs, so it does not make you look as short. It is a very elegant dress, even though it’s quite revealing, but it is by no means vulgar.
However, if you are tall, you can go with long dresses, such as this UK LONG FUCHSIA TAILOR MADE EVENING PROM DRESS (LFNAF0135). This is a very fun and colorful dress. It is asymmetric, bright and still very breezy and easy to move around in.
If you want something more elegant, then this ELEGANT LONG RED TAILOR MADE EVENING PROM DRESS (LFNAE0049) would be perfect for you. The rhinestones give it a very elegant touch, and it’s a very subtle color, which makes it the perfect option for prom.
You are not sure how to pair shoes and your handbag? If your dress is short, I would definitely match the shoes and the handbag, or at least try to find a close match in color. It is not crucial, because your handbag will probably end up at your table, not with you on the dance floor, but if you want to look really put together, I would definitely go with the same color. If your dress is bright, you, generally, can’t go wrong with nudes, and if you’re wearing a very elegant option, you may want to go with black.
I would recommend not wearing too high heels, since after a night of dancing your feet will be covered in blisters. Try and walk around in them and see what’s comfortable.
For the handbag, I would probably go with a clutch, since it’s the most elegant option, everything you’ll need fits in it and you won’t have to carry a giant bag with you all the time.
Makeup, again, depends on the dress you’re wearing. Nude is always a safe option and you can’t go wrong with it. I would probably steer clear of a too bold smoky eyes look, because it can distract people from noticing your gorgeous dress! If the dress you’re wearing is very bold and colorful, sticking to a nude makeup look is your best option. If, however, your dress is nude, or a more subtle color, you can play with colors on your eyes. Something like this rainbow makeup look is worth a try.
I hope I’ve helped you a little bit in deciding what to wear (and how to wear it) on your prom and I hope you have the best time of your life, looking fabulous!
