Prom Dresses: The Ultimate Guide To Finding Your Dream Dress

Prom is an event that happens at the end of the school year and is an opportunity to celebrate your close friendships and memories! For most people, it is one of the first events where you get to seriously dress up, show off your sense of style, and have the night of your dreams.

And when it comes to this major event, it is never too early to start thinking about what you are going to wear! After all, how often do you get the opportunity to look like you’re about to walk onto the red carpet?

So, if you are searching for your dream prom dress, then keep reading. We’ll be going over exactly how to look for prom dresses that you’ll love!

Know Your Body Type

First things first? Know your body type!

This refers to the shape of your body. Do you have an apple shaped body type that carries weight in your stomach? Hourglass shaped? Pear? Athletic build?

Knowing which features you want to show off based on your body type is the first step in choosing a silhouette that is going to be both comfortable for you as well as flattering. 

Hone in on a Prom Dress Style

Once you know your body type, it’s time to choose your silhouette!

This is referring to the style of dress you will choose. Popular option for prom dresses are the following:

And more!

Choose a flattering silhouette and stick with it as you are searching for your perfect prom dress. This will help you from being too overwhelmed by the thousands of options to choose from.

Get a Second Opinion

One of the best parts about prom is planning out all the details with your close friends. Your dress should be a part of this conversation!

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, be sure to get a second opinion from a friend you trust. They’ll be able to help you determine what you’ll look good and feel comfortable in and what will photograph well the night of your prom.

It would also be a great chance to coordinate colors and styles with your best friends to get some gram-worthy pictures on prom night.

 Keep it Elegant

Prom is a bit of a “coming of age” moment. Meaning, you’ll have the opportunity to be sophisticated and be out on the town as an adult. One mistake a lot of people make is to choose a dress that is too revealing or doesn't fit well.

Choosing a dress that fits well, flatters your body type, and is in a classic color is the best option. Choosing something that is too “trendy” can cause you to look back with regret (but not always!). 

Ultimately, sophistication never goes out of style, so keep it classy for your special night!

Have the Night of Your Dreams

The last step?

Have fun!

Prom is truly an event that you’ll look back on for years to come. It is the capstone of your time in high school and a chance to soak up all of the fun you can with your closest friends. Whether or not you have a date to prom, you’ll have a great night. Filled with great food, lovely photos, beautiful prom dresses, and an evening of dancing.
