With endless options of prom dresses online, how can you start to choose?!

If you're feeling unsure about what to wear for your prom, don't worry! We’re here to help!

 1. Comfort First!

You’ll want to dress to impress, but no matter what, WEAR SOMETHING COMFORTABLE! Don’t wear a dress you have to adjust every five seconds, choose a dress that lets you move on the dance floor!

An A-Line silhouette that’s fitted on the bodice and flows from the waist is great for all body types, super flattering, but most importantly – comfy!

2. Sparkle the night away!

Prom is the perfect excuse to glam it up and dress up in something sparkly! A dress that will turn heads when you walk in a room and catch people’s eyes will definitely make you feel like the belle of the ball!

Sparkles come in many forms, such as sequins, crystals, embroidery, and other embellishments. You can choose a dress with some accents, or a dress covered in them. Channel your inner prom queen and accessorise with matching earrings!

3. Flatter your Figure!

Prom is all about looking and feeling good. Choosing a dress that flatters your figure is crucial for feeling confident and beautiful on prom night. A body-hugging velvet dress can enhance one’s body shape, look luxurious, while offering comfort and ease of movement as they are stretchy in fabric. It accentuates curves for hourglass figures, balances pear-shaped bodies, offers comfort for apple-shaped figures, adds curves to athletic builds, and has a slimming effect for plus-size figures. Overall, stretchy velvet fabric enhances one's natural shape while creating an elegant and glamorous look.

4. Don’t be afraid to show some skin!

While it’s okay to show some skin at prom, you should keep in mind how much you are showing. Remember to stay classy, not trashy!

Cut-out dresses that show a hint of the neckline or waist can add an alluring touch to your look without being overly revealing. The cutouts can accentuate your collarbone or create the illusion of a smaller waist. It’s a modern and trendy option that adds a touch of glamour to your prom ensemble!

5. Be different and go with a short dress!

For more petite girls – short dresses are your best friend! We all know how hard it can be to find a long dress to match our height, and having to alter a dress’ length is too much work.

Short prom dresses are often more comfortable and easier to dance in compared to long gowns and can be just as elegant and eye catching! Word of advice - find something around your knee length, it gives a more sophisticated yet stylish look, while showcasing your legs.

Short prom dresses are timeless and can be worn for other occasions beyond prom night!
