Be Part of the Prom, Not the Talk of the Party

By: Gen Wright


Prom dresses are always wonderful to look at, try on or imagine how you would look in them, but one thing you don't want to do is to pick out a prom dress that does not flatter you, whether it shows to much skin, is the wrong color or the style of it does not flatter your shape. Picking out the right dress is difficult, you want a certain look, a certain style and you want many choices. There is a large selection of dresses for the prom. In the right color for you, with the right style to fit your shape and plain or with the right adornments, and with all of this you will be the "bell of the ball".

Proms are the most exciting dance of the school year; everyone there is so dressed up and looks their best, the guys in their tux and the girl on their arm in a beautiful dress. Everyone notices the dresses; so you want to look your most beautiful so when they talk you don't want to be the person that everyone says derogatory statements about your dress. While this may seem like hard decisions and very stressful, if you follow commonsense and a few guidelines to smart shopping you will not only be better dressed but will make others notice with admiration and maybe even a touch of jealousy from other girls that do not know that skin tone, hair, accessories and shoes are all a part of your prom look.

The dress you pick needs to fill many requirements and the more choices that you have means the more chance you have of finding just the right one, the right color and the right style, once you have the right dress for your coloring, size, shape and your accessories the only thing that can make you stand out now will be your dancing.

Each part of what you will wear has an effect on the rest of what you will wear, if you are wearing a dress of a dark color then you may want light accessories, silver or glass type of jewelry to enhance your look rather than something that is dark that will just blend making one large color. Shoes should also be matched to the dress, a long dress usually will look better with a shoe with a heel on it, rather than a flat shoe, but this does not mean a heel that is extra high as this will not give you much comfort for the evening.

Rather than a dress that is low cut, you can opt for a dress that has beads or sequins as an adornment to show off your dress, accessories can also help to make the look of the dress one to remember, beauty is not always skin.

Color is also important to make your dress perfect for you, the wrong color can make your skin appear washed out, it can make your face and your hairstyle appear non-existent. So, color is very important, to bring out your features.

There are items called color wheels that will tell you what colors are for your type of skin color, for makeup and there are also ones for dresses. This is an important night and you want to be noticed for the right reasons, not blend in, and not be noticed for the wrong reasons. You have decisions to make and they should not be stressful, but you should consider them carefully to make the right choice in your dress.

Do you have nice shoulders that you would look nice in a dress with thin straps or no straps? Will you wear your hair up and want to show your neck off because it is a good feature, then a dress that shows off your neck might be right. Is there a certain color that when you wear it everyone tells you how nice you look? These are things that you might consider when you are picking out your prom dress.

If you are not sure about color you can get color swatches and check them against your skin and hair to decide if a color will look right on you.

Year later when you look at your prom pictures you still want to be proud of that prom, you do not want to sit there and say, what was I thinking. Proms are supposed to be fun and exciting, it is a step closer to being an adult, and as a teenager you want to look pretty and stylish. You want to remember it as having fun, but not being the talk because of the dress you chose.
