Choosing the perfect prom dress can be a fun, rewarding process. Looking through magazines for the latest fashions is a great way to start. Flip through magazines at home with your friends, or make a trip to the bookstore. There are many fashion and prom-related magazines out there, and they will give you an idea of what styles you like. You want to be comfortable with what you are wearing on your special night, so look for styles that match your preferences and personality.
If you are the romantic type who falls for the Greek Goddess look, consider all white, empire style gowns. Also, think fairytale-inspired dresses in rose or pink shades. Consider curling your hair and wearing it down, and placing a delicate, intricate pin in your hair. You can also look like an angel in a flowing dress with one-shoulder.
If you are sophisticated and love all black prom dresses, go for it. Accessorize with big, crystal earrings with a splash of red. Also, look for black dresses with sequins, or black dresses with bright, attention-grabbing sashes. They are fun, flirty, and daring.
If you loved to play dress up as a child, you may favor the Victorian style. Victorians tend to favor the layers of tulle and lace that come with the beautiful full ball gowns. Look for vintage lace, in pinks and yellows. Victorian style dresses are also fitting if you have a narrow waist and a womanly-lower body.
Sweet and Simple:
If you love the simplicity of fashion, a simple, strapless chiffon gown would be perfect for you. It’s flirty because you can show off your shoulders, and it’s also elegant and classy. You do not have to worry about beads, sequins or fancy designs with this style. Since a simple chiffon gown is, for a lack of better words–simple, feel free to get your hair styled in an up-do and wear flirty, fun heels.
If you have a great figure and want a sexy look, go straight for the straight–straight gowns that is. Silky, slinky and soft fabrics will look fabulous on you. These fabrics will show off your figure and show the latest of trends. Look for a combination of other fabrics and unique cuts that will help you achieve a sexy prom dress look.
