Tips on Choosing your Prom Dress

Prom is one of the few events in which a girl has the opportunity to wear a fabulous and traditional gown. Every girl starts preparing for that one night by searching for the perfect prom outfit as well as the right accessories. She starts many months in advance, and at the end of her search Ė a search that grows more frantic as prom night draws nearer Ė she may still not have found the perfect one even though there are countless prom dresses to choose from. She may end up, in fact, buying one that is less than perfect, less than fabulous. Itís sad, but this misfortune then ruins, or at least colors the charm of the event.

Is your prom nearing and youíre still confused about choosing the perfect dress? Are you one of those growing more frantic as you see your night possibly ruined because of less than fabulous attire>? Here are some tips to help you select exactly the right dress for you.

  1. Determine the budget for buying your prom dress. Thereís no use mooning after something you cannot afford. Count your money, look at prices, and restrict your selection to those that are in your range.
  2. Consider short versus long dresses. Short prom dresses may be more expensive than long ones, and they also have the advantage that you can use them for the next party event, as homecoming dresses, for example, or for more regular evening wear.
  3. Next, take a look at recent trends by exploring on the Internet and using sources like fashion channels and magazines. This will help you narrow down your search.
  4. Choose colors that accent your skin tones and hair. Again, this will help you narrow down your search because not every color looks right on everybody.
  5. Consider fabric and designs. Again, not everything looks right on everybody, and if you already know in advance what kind of fabrics best suit your body type, then youíre ahead of the game. The same goes for designs and prints. Simple but elegant designs enhance all body types. Thereís no need to get something saturated with sequins when a simple design makes a cleaner, more elegant statement (and costs less).
  6. Make sure that the gown you choose flatters your body figure, and that it is comfortable to wear as well as move around in during the event. An uncomfortable gown, or one that is tight in the wrong places, will spoil your night.

So now letís talk a bit about how you can make the most of your body type when choosing the right prom dress. If your middle section carries most of the body weight, it is advisable to put on a prom dress with a straight, broadening neckline. An A-line or princess silhouette outfit will be a perfect choice for this body type. Similarly, for girls with larger hips and thighs but defined bust and waist, a dress that shows off their middle area and waist area will be the right pick. Choose a plus size formal dress that will give your figure shape if your three body measurements (bust, waist, hips) are almost equal. On the other hand, if you have a larger tummy, use an empire line dress to skim over your belly. It will also help if you can get a hold of body-shaping undergarments to flatten your tummy.

Once you have chosen the most beautiful as well as comfortable of to suit your body type, the next step is to select the most appropriate accessories and jewelry to add to your attire. The accessories should be simple, elegant, and match your dress on the one hand, and your body type on the other. Last but not least, you will need to select the ideal shoes to go with your dress. These should match your dress (you can get them dyed to do so), and they should be comfortable. Chances are you are going to be on your feet for many hours Ė you donít want to spoil your night with uncomfortable shoes. Where can you buy all this? Well, you probably know that as well as we do. But just in case, there are fine boutiques near you that sell evening wear. If you donít already know where they are, look up their website online. There are also a number of online stores that carry a wonderful selection of gowns. The easiest way to find them is to type prom dresses 2011 in your browser. And thatís about it. While choosing the right dress may not be a science, it does have to be organized if youíre going to make the perfect selection.
