How to Choose the Perfect Prom Dress?
As well as considering the fabric and style of your gown, you should also keep in mind the best ways to flatter your own body type and skin tone. Here is our guide to help you find the perfect prom dress style and color for you.
Choose a Prom Dress to Suit Your Body Type
- If you’re slender and petite, wear colors like silver and gold. Also wearing a long gown will create an illusion of stature and shimmert. Other styles that enhance curves are bold patterns. Favor designs such as petite, two pieces, mermaid gowns and short cocktail looks.
- For a curvy body type, the perfect one is form-fitting and in a solid color. Black color creates a classic and flattering look. These are also versatile for a variety of special occasions. Wearing solid colors creates a vertical line that has a slimming effect for an elegant red carpet style. Jeweled embellishments are also complementary and add a dash of classic Hollywood glam.
- For voluptuous figures, the sheath style is perfect. This will give you a sleek shape whilst showing off your curves. Stay away from bright patterns and look for colors such as nude and shades of pink. The ' Little Black Dress ' is also an ideal choice for its simple elegance and tailored sheath cut. If you’re full-figured, look for those to highlight the bust or the one that have a plunging V-neck, sweetheart or off-the-shoulder neckline. Other styles that work well are classic ball gowns with full skirts and solid colors in subtle shades.
- If your body type is more boyish (athletic), focus on adding detail. Look for ruffles, lace, embellishments, bead-work and metallics to add femininity.
Choose a Dress Color For Your Skin Tone
- If you have fair skin, light pink and blue work well, such as jewel-toned shades of sapphire and ruby. Other colors that compliment this skin tone are bright pastels. Colors such as blue and green as well as black and white. Subtle colors like silver and violet also pair great with pale, soft undertones.A green color is a great option!
- For medium skin, the peach and pink undertones go well with outfit in soft pastels. Colors such as lavender, plum and eggshell blue will add to the look.
- If your skin is earthy and peach toned, the best colors to look for are bold patterned prints. Also striking red and green shades, and metallic gold are complimentary tones. A red color will look beautiful on you.
- If your skin is dark with gold or red tones, your choice is highly in lighter shades or shimmery gold. Other colors that look fabulous with this skin tone are bright orange, red, and yellow shades.
