Prom provides a pretty good excuse to dress more over-the-top than usual (not that you’ve ever really needed an excuse, it’s just that this time it won’t be like when everyone is staring at your ball gown in the grocery store.)
In addition to a dress that prevents you from fitting into doorways, you’ll be wanting some jewelry and accessories that sparkle more than the disco ball overhead.
If you’re wearing your hair in a fancy up-do, best top opt for a comb or hair clip, that can add a touch of detail without taking away from the dramatic detailing of your prom-night makeup.
If you’re wearing your hair down and curled, a sparkling beaded headband makes for some glorious decoration, and can also draw attention to any beadwork in your dress if it’s there too.
As for your jewelry, consider how you are wearing your hair, and the neckline of your dress. If you are already wearing a lavish hear accessory, for example, you may want to go simpler with your necklace so there aren’t too many competing elements for compliments. If you aren’t wearing much in the way of locks-decor, go crazy with a necklace, complimentary bracelet, and earrings.
Long earrings are striking with updos, and post earrings work better when you leave your hair down (and prevent tangles!)
All in all, give yourself permission to go crazy and be more dazzling than ever!
