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.
