Chose one or the other. Let your flawless beat and dazzling smile be the ONLY competing statement pieces of the evening.

Even though prom is a formal event, a necklace with a high-neck embellished dress doesn’t work. It confuses the look. And please, NEVER mix jewelry medias. Select one metal (silver or gold) and stick to it.

3. DO
Balance a flirty dress with a sleek hair style where your hair lays away from your face.

Seize your fashion moment! A low bun, high bun, or any style where your hair is not the center of attention is a must.

4. DO
Make sure to pair the correct bra with the correct dress.

Strapless dresses need strapless bras. To bring that red carpet look together even more, try a flesh colored bra.

5. DO
Choose a shoe that compliments your outfit, but make sure to break them in first by walking around the house before the big night.

Ladies, not used to heels? Bring some stylish sandals, flip flops or flats for dancing.

6. DO.
Have fun! You only go to prom once, maybe twice, if you’re lucky. Dance, enjoy yourself and take tons of pictures!
