You live life only once! And a prom is a once in a lifetime event! Just like every little girl wants to be a Disney princess and tries on her mother’s shoes, make-up and fur; every teen aspires to queen it over all the others at the mega-event of the school year – the PROM!
So to look your best, get ahead of the crowd! Start shopping now! The stores will have a better, larger stock in the months of January and February. You will also have plenty of time for alterations and ironing out the small nitty-gritties that stand in the way of looking your very best!
Stores like 1Dress have a large selection of prom clothes to suit your budget, weight and style. When picking a prom dress, always first start with a dress a size larger than the one you would normally go for. Prom dresses are like wedding gowns and they usually run a size smaller. Try to get a rough idea of what’s in the store by just browsing their online catalogue….you might come right across real gems like these at 1Dress.
Remember to always try on the dresses – as the dress will be more flattering and flow along the right lines on your body rather than on the hanger. Or at least try a similar style, if the one you want isn’t in the right size or fits your budget. When shopping always keep an open mind and take a friend or aunt along as you might eventually pick on a dress you would have never imagined you’d wear. Every dress will need at least a little alteration before it fits you perfectly, so try shopping for your shoes along with the dress so that it can be hemmed to the right length. 1Dress has loads and loads of really unique prom dresses, if you’ll have the patience to go down their vast catalogue and pick the one – that will be the ONE!
And like I said earlier, 1Dress has a gown for every budget, style and size. Their plus-size gowns are the one of the most flattering that you can find! They have a really stylish range of dresses and you’d be tempted to buy more than one prom dress!
For the junior social butterfly, who has still not entered her final year, 1Dress has a selection of short, sweet prom frocks that will look apt, cute n chic as you cut a dash on the dance floor. I know the word “advice” doesn’t go well with teens or pre-teens, but it always helps to get a second opinion from your mother and friends as they will be able to steer you away from an expensive and unflattering choice.
Keeping your friends clued in about your dress will also mean that they choose a different style and colour that will complement and not clash with your special choice! Try to not go overboard with the dress, as you’ll also need a little spare cash to buy accessories and shoes. Nothing beats the effect of a simple gold or silver chain over a frothy neckline or a pretty corsage over a sequin-studded bodice – so try to save up for those magical little jewelled extras that can adorn your hair, neck and arms. But most of all enjoy yourself! Savour the shopping! Love the clothes and have a ball!
