You have finally reached that point of your teenage life that you have anticipated for so long. No, it is not just about graduating your high school but the little cherry that comes with the package – your prom. Proms are exciting, glamorous and your chance to enjoy all the celebrity feels. The catch here is, you will only be able to enjoy the feeling and attention if you will be able to pull that kind of a look, otherwise, people will just let you pass. At the end of the day, everything comes down to the fact how you plan your prom look. Even the most fashion-savvy girls go clueless about getting their look right. Moreover, budget constraints often become an extra pain to manage.
Prepping up for your prom might seem like one hell of a daunting task but it is definitely not a hard nut to crack. All you need to do is to consider a few important things and you will rock the floor on the big day.
As weird as it may sound, the very first step is to relax. There is no point in panicking and pushing yourself in a state of paranoia. It will only stress you out and will trigger an uncalled-for decision made in haste. Moreover, such level of stress takes a toll on your esteem and confidence level and it shows up in your personality. Everything can be covered up if your confidence is in place and you look lively and happy on the day. Take a deep breath and tell yourself that you are beautiful the way you are.
Start Planning Early
The best way to avoid the panic mode is to start planning early. Early planning is primarily important to decide on what kind of look you want and to be able to hunt down prom dresses accordingly. Often, it gets difficult to find a embroidered prom dress that would be the exact fit for you and you end up needing alterations and customizations. Having extra time on your hands become a lifesaver in such situations. While you are in your planning face, use this time to look up different options online, the styles that are in trend, and the average price trends in the market so that you can set your budget accordingly.
Define a Budget
Prom dresses are expensive and they are not the only expense that you need to cater to for your event. Defining an overall; budget and allocating a certain percentage of it to every expense head. Ideally, allocate the largest percentage to your dress and make sure your budget is in line with the average market prices.
Understand Your Body
Remember there is no correct definition of a good dress, good makeup, and good hairdo. What looks good on one person might not look as nice on the other. Every dress, every makeup look, and hairstyle is meant to cater to different body frames and facial features. If you have a petite body, look for some mermaid cuts and do your hair in a bun to make your features look more pronounced. If you are on the heavier side, choose from the plus size prom dresses available in the market. Use contouring and sculpting techniques to define your face features.
