The accessories are going to be what has you looking beautiful for all those pictures you’ll be taking that night.
Match your dress
When looking for those helpful accessories to pull everything together, color should be an important factor to consider. You want to match the color of your dress and not have clashing colors, but be sure not to go too matchy. Test out different tones and be sure to pursue plenty of options before making a decision.
Not too flashy
Yes, being bold is looked upon with great favor. However, being overly flashy is definitely not what you want to go for either. Overwhelming jewelry and accessories may be distracting from your dress, hair, and makeup -you should search for something that compliments all those qualities of your outfit, not takes away from them.
Less is more
Try to remember that you don’t need many items to complete your prom look. When searching for accessories try to limit yourself to no more than 3-4 items, maybe a nice handbag, necklace, earrings, and bracelet or corsage is all you need. Take a pass on the extra shawl, anklet, or multiple necklaces.
Don’t mix up too many different things
When it comes to jewelry specifically, try to keep your jewelry types consistent. It might be difficult to choose between silver or gold for instance, but it would be beneficial to make a choice and commit to that style, it will make your outfit flow much more smoothly, therein helping you to look your best on your big night.
Keep the classics
The classic prom add-ons such as the corsage, opt to keep them a part of your look. While traditionality isn’t always looked upon with great interest by many this day and age, this prom tradition is a classic which should always be kept on your prom to-do list.
Sure everyone might always remember the dress you wore to prom, but completing the look to create the ensemble that will steal the show, and the heart of your date, on your big night is so important.
