Your prom night is one of the few occasions when you can get away with formal
dresses that sparkle from head to toe. While this kind of prom
dress can certainly help you make waves on the dance floor and during your
photo sessions, there's something to be said for ladies who can weigh the
proportions of color and sparkle when crafting their ensembles.
Contrast is an important element when you're wearing a glittering formal
dress, so use your footwear, accessory and cosmetic choices as a means of toning
down your look a bit. For instance, nude, gold, or silver heels go with just about anything, so
look for a cute pair of peep-toes or strappy sandals to give your outfit a bit
When choosing accessories, stay consistent with your jewelry and wear pieces
that can lift or coordinate with your ensemble. An example of this is choosing
either silver or gold accessories throughout, or wearing a few select pieces
like a cocktail ring or earrings that match your dress.
