Before you start looking for the perfect prom dresses for you, you have to know that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to look great. The real trick is to complement your outfit with pretty accessories, comfortable shoes, and have the best attitude. Remember that clothes should always be your ally to feel good.
We know it’s summer and school is probably the last thing you think about. However, it’s never too early to start thinking about your graduation dress! It’s always a good idea to plan ahead so you don’t find the perfect dress at the last minute! From simple to angular, there is something for every taste. How to get a head start on the best graduation dresses by keeping an eye on these styles!
The first step is deciding what color you want your graduation dress to be. This can be based on your favorite color, skin tone, or a shade that you think will compliment you best. Look at past colors you’ve worn or what people seem to flatter you. This is also a great opportunity to experiment and try out a color that you have never worn before. Make a list so you know what to look for.
After you’ve decided on a color, start thinking about which cocktail dress or graduation dress you want to rock. Is it strapless, strapless, or long sleeved? Is it short or long? To do this, you want to keep an eye on your body shape, atmosphere, and crowd. Be sure to choose a style that will blend in and stand out at the same time. Plus, you should be comfortable all day and all night, so choose wisely. If you are comfortable, you will feel more secure!
If you are one of those who feel more comfortable with a dress that does not have so much adornment but that looks pretty, this advice is for you. Look for a color like solid black or navy blue. If you go for a white, a gray or a beige, you may look too simple and go unnoticed.
If you have very marked curves and you do not like to wear outfits that are too tight, an excellent option for prom dresses are the vaporous ones. These are thin at the top to accentuate the waist and with a drape that is increasing.
After you’ve chosen a gown, it’s time to figure out what shoes and accessories you’ll require! Remember: less is more. If you are planning on wearing a spectacular, sparkling dress with lots of details, then minimal accessories are the way to go. On the other hand, if your dress is on the simple side, you can spice it up with diamond jewelry and killer shoes. It’s all about balance, comfort and a cohesive finishing look.
To complete your look, you will need to start thinking about your hair and makeup graduation. Would you like to sport your hair in loose curls or rock a chic updo? The choice is yours based on your personality and clothing style. As far as makeup goes, you decide if you want more of a natural or bold look. Do you do it yourself or make an appointment with a professional? Decisions, decisions!
Last but not least, you should start thinking about your graduation date. Are you planning to go out with one person or a group of friends? When are they going to ask you or are you going to ask them? Start looking at the group of friends you are going with so you can coordinate your look. You don’t want to wear the same dress as your best friend or choose a color that your date hates!
