Ask TJFormal: How can I get a unique look for prom?

Q: How can I get a unique look for prom?

You can't wait to go to prom, but you like attention! You want heads to turn when you walk in the room, and your friends to say "Why didn't I think of that?!" and "She is so cool!" You are the type of girl who loves that beautiful dress, but wants to take it a step further to "individualize" herself.

Bethie is the same way - she loves as much attention as she can get! So one of the first things she tried was a really unique dress. Terani 2010 Prom Dress 95033P is made from peace symbol fabric with large metal peace symbols, complete with bling, accenting the waist.

Yep, that certainly is a stand-out dress! Bethie thought it was so fun and wild! And we have many other unique styles to try.

Beyond a unique dress, it's all about ACCESSORIES, ACCESSORIES, ACCESSORIES!!

Try a handmade, one-of-a-kind hair accessory:

Or how about some seriously BOLD shoes:

Touch Ups Shoe "Celine" 304

Touch Ups Shoe "Celine" 279

Some flashy jewelry perhaps?
Jenny's Place Necklace Set 231188028403

Bright colored gloves - how many girls are brave enough to wear these?!
Stretch Satin Over-the-Elbow Gloves 6011

In the end, Bethie ended up looking ADORABLE in her black and white polka dot dress, with red shoes and a black hat. Sherri Hill 2010 Prom Dress 1214

Bethie is sure to get some looks now! What can you come up with to make heads turn?


  1. That's a funky way to dress for a prom. And I really love the shoes. :)

  2. Haha, Bethie is hilarious! The peace sign outfit is pretty out there, but the polka dots are fun. :)
