Hence, all the worries, tantrums, shopping sprees, extravagant spending are readily justified when it comes down to prom night. Considering the amount of effort that goes into planning a prom dress we thought it would be best if we got our lovely young ladies some ideas for their prom dress beforehand which would save them the effort and energy both.

1. Floral Diva
Not all of us are a great fan of sequence and bling and prefer things simple. However, when it comes to events like prom and weddings most of us shy away from dressing up because we feel it’s not appropriate to don floral dresses on a formal event. Let us have the honor of breaking this news to you that NO, it is completely fine if you wore floral to prom or to a wedding – however, you need to keep in mind what sort of cut you need to add that panache to your demeanor. We suggest you take a good look at this dress and get the inspiration you need and the motivation you need to feel completely fine in your own nature-friendly floral style.
It’s worthy to note how the dress has been well paired up with a lace top to finish the look with the ideal chic twist.

2. Sequence Galore
For ladies who adore Gatsby, well this one’s for you. If you want your prom nights to be the kind as depicted in movies then opt for sequence embellished gowns. Go for the elegant ones instead of the cheap ones that are laden with inexpensive gems and speak for themselves that they have been bought at some thrift store. Sequence embellished gowns are an ideal pick for women who have a rather slim physique as well as women with curves that they wish they could show off. For curvy women, we suggest that they go for an overall gown that is not really laden with sequence but has enough work to be found everywhere on the fabric. For slim ladies, we suggest they get a gown that is paired with tulle instead of an overall draping fabric because tulle adds up the volume that is required. A sweetheart neck with sequence chest area and tulle below it- imagine wearing something of this sort – you’ll know how it feels to be a goddess.

Dos and Don’ts for the Perfect Prom Manicure

You don’t have to pay high salon prices to have a perfect 2018 prom manicure, but you do need to pay attention to what you’re doing. These easy tips can help assure your nails look as groovy as the rest of your outfit and don’t stick out like a sore thumb.


File. Filing your nails is a must both before and after the manicure. Unfiled nails can just look sloppy if you paint them. Filing them after the fact finishes off any rough edges and ensures the polish fully reaches the tips. File gently in one direction, using an emery board for best results.

Add a top coat. Top coats work wonders for sheen and protection. Wait until the polish is dry and then add a thin layer of your favorite brand. It also works for sprucing up a manicure after several days as a way to replenish the shine and add another layer of protection.

Warm and soften. Warming and softening applies to the nail polish you are about to use. The softening part also applies to your cuticles. Achieve the former by rapidly rubbing the closed bottle of polish between your palms for at least one minute. Soften your cuticles with a specialized lotion or cuticle oil, but be sure to wipe any residue off your nails before putting on the polish.


Let it chip. Fix chips as soon as possible or you can end up with one very tacky look. Touch up the chip with the same color polish and another top coat. You can also remove the polish altogether since no nail polish can look better than chipped off (or chewed off!) polish.

Go gloppy. Thick coats of polish don’t dry properly, can look sloppy, and are prone to dents. If your nail polish is gloppy, try warming it in your palms. If it’s still too thick to look good, you may want to chuck it and invest in a new bottle.

Cut nails too short. The rule of thumb, so to speak, it to trim nails no shorter than the top edge of the white tip at the end. Cutting them shorter than their white tip can be painful!

If you’re seeking the perfect manicure, these quick tips can help you nail it! You can even help your friends spruce up their own nails using these tips to give them a hand.

Ellie Saab did it again

Here are matt’s comments on the last Ellie Saab couture show:
“The beadwork and sequins in this show are amazing, though I would expect nothing less from an haute couture show. Some things that really jumped out at me were the sequin pattern on the neckline of the dress that starts section 23. The combination of beading and three dimensional fabric flowers we see on the skirts in section 28 and again on the tops in section 31 are gorgeous, if we could get those on the skirt of ball gown that would look amazing. Also the crisscross beading on the bodice of the dress that starts section 34 is great.”

Why You Should Bring A Shawl With Your Prom Dress

Tony Bowls 111729

It’s the day of prom and you’ve picked out your choice of prom dresses, or formal dresses or any other kind of dresses that you can think of. You’re super excited about your outfit and you just can’t wait to go. However, once you get there, you’re told that your short dresses are too short or that you should have brought a jacket because of the back of your dress. So, you’re a tiny bit upset and you aren’t sure what you should have done, but now you’re out of a bit of money and you have no plans for the night.

The good thing about shawls is that they can take inappropriate prom dresses and make them the picture of modesty. Not only do they help to make them more appropriate, but they also have the upside of adding a touch of elegance to any dress.

Decide on what type of shawl you should wear based on the colors and complexity of your dress. If you have a very fancy, very decorative dress, choose a simpler shawl and vice versa. As for color, you should leave your shawls neutral—it makes it a lot easier to mix and match them and then you can use your shawl with outfits other than prom dresses or other dresses that are that color.

How Long Should Your Prom Dress Be?

Clarisse 1351

So, you’ve decide to go shopping for prom dresses, formal dresses, or cocktail dresses—and you’re excited. You know exactly what you’re looking for, but you also kind of considering buying short dresses instead, since they’re in right now.

However, the line between appropriate and inappropriate is oftentimes forgotten when it comes to prom dresses. The question is—how do you know what is considered appropriate and what should you do. You need to understand that you shouldn’t try and get away with ridiculously short dresses. You also need to know that in most cases, you can simply look in your school’s code of conduct to understand what type of skirts are inappropriate and what kinds of skirts are not.

First of all, all skirts must pass the fingertips. If you have short arms, then they may ask you to do the flamingo test. It generally depends on what type of skirt that you are wearing and how it looks. Most of the time, your best bet is to keep your skirt at least three quarters of the way down your leg. If you find that it rides up for any reason, you should consider increasing that length. If you have any doubts about a dress, call up your class sponsor. They are more than willing to help you pick out an appropriate dress.

What To Bring Just in Case Your Prom Dress isn’t Appropriate

Clarisse 1603

So you found the perfect prom dresses. They’re absolutely gorgeous and you can’t wait to wear them. However, you aren’t entirely sure if your formal dresses and prom dresses fall into the category of appropriate, but you already made the purchase and can’t go back on it. This isn’t a common scenario, but it is one that can happen. Luckily, you can be prepared.

First of all, look at your dress. Does it have a plunging neckline? That could be a problem. Is the back cut out? That could be another problem. Is it a tiny bit too short? That’s another problem that you might run into. The question is—how do you get rid of these issues and keep your prom dresses and cocktail dresses and short dresses, no matter how they look?

Try and make sure, first and foremost, that if you have cut outs, you also have masking tape and colored fabric that matches (or maybe doesn’t match) your dress. In this case, if you happen to have your dress deemed inappropriate for whatever reason, you can quickly slip it off, cover up the cut outs, and get back to the dance floor. If you can’t have a low back, make sure that you have a shawl on you just in case. As for cleavage, you probably won’t want to use masking taps, but a good safety pin would probably do the job well!

Keeping Your Dress Within Dress Code Limitations

Say that you’re new to a school or perhaps you haven’t really considered the dress code and you’re shopping for prom dresses or formal dresses. You want to make sure that you look nice and you want to choose a dress that you really like—but the question is—how do you find a dress that is completely appropriate and what counts as appropriate as far as dresses go?

First of all, try and get a copy of your school’s dress code or look online and find out if they have it posted there. This should be your main guide for choosing your short dresses or prom dresses that you aren’t too sure about. However, in short, you should keep these few rules in mind:

Try and keep cleavage almost non-existent. You shouldn’t have a plunging neckline—this is a school event and if everything is hanging out of your dress, this is a reflection on them and you may find that you are removed for it. Three inches below the collar bone is a good measurement for keeping it safe. As for skirts, you should keep them at least 3/4ths the way down your thigh and you should be able to pass either the flamingo test or the fingertip test. As for cut outs and low backlines—ask your class sponsor. They know a bit more about what’s appropriate than you do and are willing to help.
