This season may be known as spring to most but for many it’s the season of prom! Schools and colleges, from the UK to US, will be starting to think about the dates, music and, most importantly, the outfits to wear when celebrating the end of the school year. We’ve watched many an ’80s high school movie where proms are all about girlie dressesA dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment). and ornate corsages but how do can you make them look cool for 2017? Here’s four ways to bring a little twist to your prom outfit and make sure you stand out…
Rock a Biker
Forget a fusty bolero or a glittery cardigan, if you’re going for a girlie-girl prom dress ensure you cut through the sweetness with a boxy leather jacket. A classic biker brings some carefree cool to your look as well as giving some much-loved Grease vibes. (When in doubt just add these epic fluffy mules!)
Do Socks ‘n’ Sandals
Trust us on this one. If you’ve got a classic prom dress – floor length, strappy, formal – we recommend making below the knees playful with an open sandal paired with a fun pair of socks. Very fash-un!
That’s right. Change up the usual prom dress pastel colour palettes and opt for a more alluring night-time style in black. If you’re still craving a little softness try a black dress with the addition of lace inserts or floral details.
Go Disney Princess
Who are we kidding? Sometimes you want to embrace all the pink and feminine for a night! Our powdery pink floor-length bandeau gown will do just the job. Pair with chandelier earrings and a statement clutch to go full Cinderella.
