Like it or not, prom happens. It keeps on coming year after year, disrupting normal life for months, with every girl secretly obsessing over making that single “big” night a perfect one.

Whether you’re the girl who looks forward to prom all year long, or the girl who likes to plan the anti-prom party, one thing is for sure: you need an amazing dress that’s going to bring out the best of you. A good place to start looking at different styles and colors of dresses is You’ll get an idea of what is available and what a good quality prom dress will cost. (in my opinion, suprisingly little).

Find below a few criteria to consider when choosing the prom dress:

  1. COLOR:
  • Girls with fair complexions tend to look their best in pastels and softer colors. Whites, corals, ocean blues, light raspberry, soft tangerine and champagne are just a few beautiful choices.

  • If you have a darker skin tone, you can enjoy bright, vivacious colors without being overshadowed by their power. Bright red, midnight blue, emerald green, cobalt blue will bring you the attention you deserve.


There are many rules in this department but they can all be summarized like this:

  • Choose that part of your body that you like most and be sure that the chosen prom dress draws the attention towards it.

  • Choose only one best feature to bare: Long legs ? … wear a mini!; Nice breats? … Go for cleavage! Good posture? …Go for a backless dress! Nicely tones arms? …Sleeveless it is!
