Getting ready for a Prom is an exciting event! Planning your hairstyle, make-up and accessories around your dress means shopping now is a top priority. Use these tips to help find a dress that you will look and feel most excellent in.
Start your search by looking online or in your favorite Teen Magazines to find out what’s in style. Keep in mind that the hottest styles usually start to sell out in mid march. That makes it important to start early and take your time picking several different styles and designs that you feel are your favorite.
It’s important to try dresses on, even if you are planning on buying one online. Take some time to go to several different stores to try on dresses. It can be a fun occasion if you go with your friends so you can comment on how each other looks in different styles that are being tried on. You may also want to take some pictures for future reference. That will help you remember which styles seemed to work the best for you.
As you try on different styles, you’ll be able to tell which are the most flattering to your body type. If you are tall and thin, you might want to stay away from form fitting dresses and opt for fluid a-line styles. If you have an hourglass figure, you might want to find a dress that will cinch in at the waist, or have a sash. Again, trying on a variety of styles will help you determine what is going to be most attractive.
As you are trying the dresses on, dance and move around for a bit. Stretch your arms up in the air and to the sides to see how the dress moves on you. If you find yourself adjusting yourself often in the dress, then look for another style. You aren’t going to be comfortable having to spend most of your evening tugging and pulling your dress back into place.
You also want to make sure the dress doesn’t bunch up or crease into your curves as you are dancing around. Look for a dress that will flow with you and look smooth on your body. Finding the right size will help with this as well, so don’t be afraid to go up, or down, a size than what you typically wear if the particular dress calls for that.
Another consideration is the fabric. If it’s going to be warm, and especially if you intend on dancing a lot, you want to steer clear of fabrics that will show sweat stains. You also want to make sure it won’t wrinkle easy such as some linens tend to do. The easiest way to test a dress for how wrinkle free it will stay is to scrunch a part of it in your hands while you are trying it on. If it stays creased when you let it go, then chances are your dress is going to wrinkle and crease before you even make your grand entrance.
Take your time and look around at a lot of different styles and designs. You are going to be stunning!
