Prom Dress Shopping: What You Need To Know

February 12, 2019 Shopping No Comments Email Email

When the time comes to pick your prom dress, you want to be prepared in order to maximize your decision. Here are a few of the most important things to keep in mind when prom dress shopping this season.

  • Everybody Is Different
    • Shopping for a prom dress is all about knowing what you like, and how you like to look. This is a great opportunity to learn about yourself, and what fit works for your face, your body, and most importantly, what dress brings you the most joy.
  • Trends Are There To Help You
    • Trends may feel difficult to keep up with when coupled with the pressure of picking the right dress, and it is true that the most important factor is not what the culture says you should wear, but what is best for you. However, trends can be embraced during the discovery process as helpful tools to guide your search.
  • Inspiration Is Everywhere
    • If you are trying to determine what style is best for you, take a look around. Take a walk, window shop, talk to people, watch movies. Use the entire world as your inspiration; it is teeming with ideas and motivations that may strike at any moment. Fashion trend resources like fashion magazines, and social media can also be useful as you sift through your choices.
  • Red Is Always In
    • The color red is pretty much always hot and in fashion, always in season. If you don’t know what color to go with, a classy red is always going to be a good option to explore. Red is serious, deep, passionate, vibrant, and never fails to catch the eye.
  • It’s Not About the Money
    • There are some really great options out there, even on the cheap. Look for discounts, and keep a careful eye on price drops and online deals. If you are dutifully patient, you might just end up snagging the perfect prom dress for less.
  • The Options Are Endless
    • Whether it is colors, presence of lace or sequins, shoulder/strap styles, short/long prom dresses and train length, or woven backs, the options for your prom dress are literally endless. But don’t let this overwhelm you; instead, use it as an advantage, and think of it as an opportunity to delve into the foray. Let it inspire you and maximize your search.
  • Accessories Matter
    • It is always a good idea to keep accessories, jewelry, makeup, and hairstyles in mind when you are making your decision. Finding inspiration from these ancillary pieces will help you complete your look, and might influence what style, length, or color dress you end up choosing. In the same way that trends are there as visual guidelines, different sizes can help you narrow down the endless options of long prom dresses and beyond.
  • Don’t Settle
    • Choosing the right prom dress is important, and so is not settling for the first dress you see (or even the first dress that you like). Never settle for the first, second, or even third option. Keep searching until you find the perfect fit. The perfect dress will always be in the last place you look.
  • Use Sizes (Don’t Let the Sizes Use You)
    • Although there are standards for prom dress sizes that dictate what you should be wearing, don’t let this limit your options. If you are petite, maybe look into a shorter train, and if you have longer legs and want something shorter, consider wearing a smaller size and using it to your advantage your own way.

These are some of the many things you can do to expedite the process and make a decision that can make your prom night special. Always remember that everyone is different, and only you really can know what works best for you.
