Its prom season, which is exciting, but it can also be stressful. If you’re a girl, you have to pick a dress; you have to get your nails and hair done, maybe go tanning. You have to find shoes, and more importantly find a date, etc. It can be a lot! But prom can also be one of the best times of your life because it will be something you always remember. So preparation is very important. To make it less stressful we have comprised a list of the top 5 prom trends for 2013.
Don’t know if you should go with a long or short dress? Do both! Right now high-low dresses that are short in the front and long in the back are really cute. Choosing a dress that incorporates lace is very trendy as well. Also dresses that have sparkle from the bust line and up is really in. It’s nice because it’s not too sparkly, but just enough. Be sure to wear a nice bright color since it is spring time. Also peplum dresses are a great trend because they complement so many body shapes.
For prom hair trends there are a couple routes you could take. You could do a classic updo or leave your hair down. Either way incorporating some braids is cute and trendy. There are so many different styles of braids you could do. Look at pictures to see which one you like the best, then practice to see if it looks good on you.
Prom makeup is prettiest when it is simple and youthful. It should be about one thing on your face standing out. It could be your eye shadow, your lips, your eyelashes, your eyeliner, your skin, it’s up to you. It does of course depend on what you are wearing. But in general, one thing popping is the rule of thumb. If you’re not a makeup rules kind of person, then do what you want, it’s your prom.
Oval claw like nails are in at the moment. Also bedazzling your nails is another trend to watch out for. Wearing a bright, even neon, color is also nice touch to really bring your whole look together.
Shoes for prom can be a pain to find, but they shouldn’t be a pain to wear. Make sure they are comfortable to wear since you will be wearing them all night. You may not be used to wearing high heels, so if you decide to wear them make sure to wear them a few times before the actual day so you can get used to them. Otherwise opting for some cute flats is a good alternative. Either way, wear them before prom so you can actually enjoy your night to the fullest.
