A floor length prom dress is definitely an option but midi and short cocktail dresses are acceptable today. When deciding what length prom dress to wear try a number of styles on that are different lengths on to see which is the most flattering style for you. Never wear anything trendy if it does not look good on you. Dresses that are too low cut, tight or too short can make you look cheap. Something more modest is in good taste and more appropriate for the teenage years.
Finding a Perfect Prom Dress
Finding a perfect prom dress means planning ahead. Begin by searching magazines and online to see what is available and get an idea of what’s out there, what you like and price ranges. Then you can set a budget (ball park figure) for what you need to spend. Keep in mind you’ll need shoes, jewelry, purse and a wrap in addition to a prom dress. These items should be included in your budget. If you are getting your hair done and a manicure and pedicure they will need to be included also. Check out this App called Plan’it Prom. It features a timeline and budget calculator as well as saving tips.
“A Prom Dress Style That’s You”
The prom dress style that’s for you is a dress that flatters your figure type and is in good taste. To determine a style that’s perfect for you, ask yourself what is my figure shape: triangle, inverted triangle, rectangle or hour glass? Good taste means a prom dress that fits you perfectly; not too tight, too short, and not too low.
