Fashion Trends of 2012 Prom Dresses and Accessories

April 30, 2012

Choose a stylish prom dress 2012 for the biggest night of the year can seem overwhelming. How can you find the perfect prom dress that will make you stand out in a crowd? When it comes to prom, some things are predictable. Gorgeous dresses, flower corsages and up-dos. With our tips, finding the perfect prom dress and accessories is easier than you think.

It all starts with the dress. A long dress falls on the formal side, while a short dress is more flirty and playful. Consider what flatters your skin tone. Try on lots of colors to see what makes you glow. Also think about the statement you want to make — bold and brash, fun and flirty, or elegant and feminine. Some on-trend hues for this year include white, pretty pastels and metallic. Before you launch into a prom-induced panic, think about what looks best on you. If you have narrow shoulders and a small bust, a square neckline can give the illusion of a fuller chest. If you have toned arms from all that volleyball practice, show them off with thin straps, or go strapless.

Both the little things and the big things matter when it comes to looking your best on this long-awaited, special night. Just be sure to leave enough time to get your hair just right before you pin on that corsage. The style of the hair depends mostly on the dress or the ‘look’ for the night. Is it traditional? When the hair is up, it is more of a loose chignon -the look is done but not overdone. Chignons can be created with your own hair, or they may be available as false hair extensions. The style used to be popular among Greek and Roman women long ago.

Even if you don’t normally wear jewelry, this is prom; sparkle and bling are essential. Your accessories should complement your overall look and theme, but they don’t need to match. Going glam? A large cocktail ring and shimmery earrings are perfect. Feeling the vintage vibe? Opt for a tangle of bangles and some hoops in your ears. No matter your dress and theme, you need a clutch to match.
