As you bid farewell to the high school years and brace up to step into the real world, you do deserve one exciting event where you can make some wonderful memories with your pals and besties. That much-anticipated event is your high school prom night and is nothing short of a Met Gala for you. The glam factor attached to the prom nights explains why all the girls go crazy when planning their prom looks. Everyone wants to stand out on the big night but most girls are confused exactly how to pull off the perfect prom look. Even the biggest fashionistas can get their gowns and makeup wrong because dressing up for prom is nothing like dressing up for your friends to meet up at the pizza joint.
The nervousness that comes with prom peps is totally justified but pulling off a perfect prom look is no brainer. All you need to do is to get your outfit, accessories and hair and makeup together and avoid a few mistakes that people usually end up making.
Typically, a prom look is not all about prom dresses. Everything from accessories to hair and makeup to your natural confidence and personality adds to the package. However, your dress will drive an easy 70% of your entire look so this area needs your attention before anything else. If your dress goes wrong, everything else will end up in failure too. When buying a prom dress for yourself, start planning early so you have adequate time to browse through different options. Moreover, having a reasonable time frame will also allow you to get yourself some customization done if needed. As a matter of fact, many girls do not fit in the standard off-the-rack measurements and do require some sort of alterations so extra time is always a plus.
When you are choosing a gown for yourself, the most important thing to understand is that not every gown will look the same on , therefore, you should opt for a cut that shapes your body well. Usually, girls with hour-glass or rectangle shaped body frames can pick almost anything since there frames are quite symmetrical and most styles work well for them. However, if you have a heavy body or a pear-shaped frame, you would want to look at some plus size prom dresses for yourself.
Hair and Makeup
The biggest element after a prom dress that can make or break your prom look is your hair and makeup. When choosing your hairdo, look for something that complements your dress and accessories and enhances your face. Unless you are too daring, avoid any new hair color experimentations when your prom is around the corner. Keep your makeup soft and subtle if your dress is too blingy. If you have opted for a simple gown with not much detailing, you may opt for a bolder makeup look.
The latest fashion is less is more so do not go overboard with your jewelry. If your gown is full sleeved, avoid accessorizing your wrist and stick to rings on your fingers only. Wear a necklace only if you have an off-shoulder gown. For high-neck gowns, you can skip the necklace and wear earrings only
