Accessorize Your Way To The Prom

The most important purchase you will make in preparation for prom is your dress, of course, but that is just the beginning.  Top off your prom look with remarkable accessories to really look like a star.  There are many ways you can dress up your outfit by adding shoes, jewelry, and other accessories.

Every girl loves when she has a great reason to buy a pair of fabulous new shoes, and prom is definitely worthy of some excellent footwear.  For a dress with some sparkle on it, wear a pair of silver or gold shoes on it to bring out the glitz on your dress.  If your dress has a wild print, find a pair of solid shoes in your favorite color from the print.  If you chose a short prom dress, shoes can be your standout piece for the night.  A pair of bright colored solid, or even printed, heels can completely transform your look.  If heels aren’t your thing, embellished flats are becoming a popular trend for prom night.  A chic pair of flats will allow you to dance the night away without your feet aching.  The number one rule of prom shoes:  make sure you wear a pair of shoes that you are comfortable dancing in!

Another prom must have is a small bag to bring to the dance. Clutches are a popular choice and you can find them in just about any size and color.  An allover sparkle clutch can add an extra flair to any dress.  If you are going for a more simplistic look, a classic black bag is always a safe selection.

Last, but certainly not least, jewelry.  Statement earrings are all the rage this season.  Consider wearing a long pair of beautiful earrings in place of a big necklace.  To dress up your wrists, layer a few different bracelets for a trendy look.  Fashion watches are also a great addition to any outfit.  Balance out the complexity of your dress with your jewelry.  If your dress is already busy with a print or allover sequins, choose simple jewelry so you don’t overdo it.  Pick out glamorous jewelry for a predominantly solid dress that could use a little something extra.

When choosing your accessories, work off your favorite part of your prom dress as a guide.  It is important to make sure you don’t go overboard with accessories because the point is to enhance your look without taking focus away from the dress.  Once you have landed the dress of your dreams, start accessorizing to create the ultimate prom look!
