With prom season around the corner, it is never too early to start thinking about your prom look.
You survived another school year, you’re studying for your last final exams, you’re getting ready for college, you’re planning your senior trip, your summer holiday… but most importantly, you’re all about YOU! And this is why you want your prom look to be special and memorable. You also want to make sure you are picture-perfect and admire your look for the coming years.
Here are a few tips that will help you to get ready for one of the most memorable experiences of your life:
Choose the prom dress style you want
Pick a dress that will make you feel confident and sexy, a unique dress that also reflects your personality and who you are. If you don’t like a ton of attention, go for a chic, simple look. If you’re looking for a jaw-dropping style, a glamorous extravagant dress would be perfect.
Here are some trendy styles that we propose:
The body-con dress: If you want to accentuate your curves from top to bottom, a flattering body-con dress would be the perfect option. Strapless, halter-neck, or mini dress, pick the one that will highlight your best feature. Add to it comfortable heels. They will make your figure appear slimmer and your look sexier! Also, there is no shame in wearing shapewear to make you look and feel better.
One-shoulder dress: This style is very glamorous and flattering. The dress is already a statement itself, you don’t really need to accessories it. You can just add to it some small golden earrings or a ring, and you’re ready to go! Another tip I would give is pulling your hair back when wearing this style to show off your neck, chest, and shoulders.
The Ball Gown dress: Wear this dreamy dress and feel like a fairy-tale princess on this night. With its tight corset and its signature full skirt, this dress is as elegant as it can get. It is the perfect dress to wear if you want to stand out and catch out all eyes on you.

Wisely choose YOUR color
Choosing the right color is as important as choosing the right style. Hot pink, lime green, yellow… The options are endless. You just need to choose the one that will bring out your skin tone and hair color. The one that will make you look STUNNING! Prom is an occasion to pick unique, vibrant hues that can really make a statement. Go for a colour that will make you stand out from your classmates. Also, don’t forget to coordinate with your prom date to choose matching colors!
Here are some little tips :)
Pale skins = A contrasted color like navy blue or fuchsia
Dark skin tones / Brown eyes = A light color like beige or light pink
Green/blue eyes = Deeper shades, like burgundy
Light Blond hair = Pastel-colored will make you look like a princess
Blond hair = Red or purple will balance with your hair color
Dark hair = Colors like royal blue will make you shine
Don’t forget to accessorize
Once you’ve picked the perfect dress, it is time to think about the accessories. Accessories will complete your outfit and are essential if you’re willing to take your prom look to the next level.
First, let’s talk about jewelry. It is always a good idea to add some sparkles to your look. If the shoulder or neck area of your dress is already busy, I would suggest you to wear simple and small earrings. If you are wearing a strapless dress, for example, I would suggest you to choose a larger pair of earrings or a bold necklace that would add some spice and glamour to your outfit.
Then, another important element of your prom look to consider is your purse. As we already know, a purse is a girl’s best friend, and it is definitely not letting you down on this big occasion! You will want to match your purse’s color with your dress or contrast it with it (choosing a complementary color of course). Also, always take into consideration your shoe color when choosing your purse. For a classic look, you can always choose silver or gold purses.
