Whether it's your first prom or maybe your last as a student, if you're a girl, you are browsing websites and checking out magazines to see what the newest prom dress trends are. You need those tips, as well as the knowledge you have of yourself and what your body looks good in, to know what to reach for when you finally go shopping for your prom dress. And you'll need one more thing, the knowledge of what not to buy if you want to avoid prom wardrobe malfunctions.
When it comes to a perfect prom dress, some qualities are a must. Your ideal prom dress should fit you nicely in all the right places, the color should work beautifully with your skin tone and hair color, it will be so comfortable that you'll be able to dance the night away, and it will also be event-appropriate. Because regardless of the fact that there are many different choices as far as prom dresses go, you need to remember tat not every dress is right for your big night.
If you've ever looked at reports from red carpet, you know that sometimes fabrics play tricks on stars and reveal what is under the dress in specific light. That's why it's best to do a light test when you try different prom dresses on. Simply stand near a bright light source or have a friend take a picture of you in the dress, using a flash would be imperative, and you'll know if the dress you have on is one of those you shouldn't wear to the prom. Of course if you love the dress, you can still get it, but you'll have to remember to pick up a nude slip to wear under it in order to not flash your fellow prom goers.
Accidentally showing too much of what's under your dress is definitely something to avoid. What you should also try not to do is showing too much due to your dress cut choice. And that means what you should not wear to your prom is a dress that is too tight, too short or too low cut. Sure it can look pretty, but more at a beach party than at your prom. And if the fact that it is not appropriate doesn't speak to you, consider this. If your dress is very short or very low cut, you'll be spending more time trying to tug it down or pull it up tan having fun. Otherwise you may end up with a bunch of photos on line you'd rather not have taken.
When looking for your prom dress keep in mind what not to wear, keep in mind what the latest trends and tips are, but most importantly keep yourself in mind. You have to love the dress you choose and feel great in it; otherwise you won't be having fun. So think pretty and appropriate, think comfortable and adorable, think the perfect prom dress, think one hundred percent you.
