8 DOS & DONT'S for PROM

As prom sea­son ap­proaches, there are many things that may be a con­cern. Re­mem­ber, you don’t have to be tra­di­tional; you can be your­self and el­e­gant at the same time. Quintessen tially, a Cin­derella gown is ac­cept­able; how­ever, you can live out your per­son

Do: Think about what com­pli­ments you and not what looks best on some­one else. Be wise with colors that look best with your skin tone. Tip: Jewel tones like sap­phire and amethyst look amaz­ing on ev­ery­one and great on cam­era.

Do: Em­brace solids; they are the best choice. Wild pat­terns don’t al­ways pho­to­graph well. (We know prom is re­ally all about the Instagram pics.)

Do: Feel con­fi­dent! Re­mem­ber, it’s all about com­fort. If a dress fits you well, you’ll feel as con­fi­dent and fab­u­lous as you are. A dress that’s too tight doesn’t equal a fun night. You want to ac­tu­ally be able to bust some se­ri­ous dance moves in your dress... af­ter all it is PROM night!

Do: Re­mem­ber that if a dress doesn’t fit you per­fectly, you can al­ways get it al­tered. Shop around for in­ex­pen­sive, but re­li­able tai­lors.

Do: Start look­ing early. You don’t want to scram­ble to find a dress that may need to be al­tered at the last minute. Start months be­fore the prom.

Don’t: Limit your op­tions. You may know a seam­stress who can cus­tom make your dress. My daugh­ter chose one of J. Lo’s dresses from Vogue and the seam­stress was a fam­ily friend that made the dress for her. We saved money and it was a show stop­per!

Don’t: Sweat the small stuff. If you don’t have a date, it’s okay. Just go with friends and en­joy the night-have fun.

Don’t: Hop on the crazy trend train show­ing off pho­tos of you in a cut-out, back­less, ze­bra-print dress. Some­times less is bet­ter, so don’t un­der­dress.
