How to Accesorize for Prom 2011
Posted on February 28 2011
The big day is rapidly approaching…the moment you’ve been anxiously waiting for
since you were a little girl. No, it’s not your wedding day, but it’s the next best thing. It’s PROM 2011!
Now if you’ve found that perfect dress, the one that you look and feel amazing in and the one that all your friends wish that they had found first, you’re one step ahead of the game. On one hand, the dress is everything, but it is nothing without the right accessories to make it pop! You need those few key pieces to make the look your own, to add a dash of glamour to the dress, and to pull the look together. Whether you have a modest dress or one that expresses your fun and flirty personality, you will need some accessories to compliment the dress and make a statement.
Here’s your must-haves: shoes, a purse (preferably a clutch), and pair of earrings.
After that, the choice is yours whether you want to wear any other accessories or not.
But maybe subtle has never been your style and you’d rather transform from Cinderella into Belle of the Ball. In that case, you’ll want to try a few additional accessories to make a statement:
- Cocktail ring
- Hair accessories: jewels, feathers, netting, etc.
Jewelry is really the key to setting the mood and celebrating your style. Itgives your
look a little something extra, in the form of sparkle, shine, and high-design. A cocktail ring draws attention to your dainty hands and rockin’ nail polish. A bold pair of earrings draws attention to your beautiful face and adds balance.
Try pairing some of your finds with some of our prom dresses. A statement necklace would go perfectly with a strapless gown or a simple pair of studs or dangling earrings would work with a classy halter dress. A one-shoulder gown, with diamond-studded hoops would really make you look both stunning and hip.
If you’re in need of a cute clutch to go with your amazing dress try this one. You can either get this clutch to compliment your dress, or order it in white and dye it to match your dress.
