A big part of the prom experience is finding the right dress. But finding all those unique prom dresses is half the fun! Here are some tips for finding the perfect unique prom dress for you.
Give yourself plenty of time to shop around. Don’t try to buy a dress at the last minute as you can end up with something you are less than crazy about and make the process more stressful than it needs to be. Remember this is fun, go with a group of friends or a family member so you can receive advice or get a second opinion.
There are a lot of choices out there for unique prom dresses, so try to get an idea of what you’re looking for beforehand. Look through magazines for styles you like or ideas of how you might want to do your hair and accessories. If you don’t know what style you want, maybe have a color palette in mind that you like or flatters your skin tone and hair.
When shopping for unique prom dresses, budget is important; it’s not only the dress, but the shoes and accessories such as a bag or jewelry too. You can always buy a simple dress that fits you well and you feel comfortable in, and make it memorable with some statement jewelry or put all the focus on your hair with style and accessories. You may even choose to get a dress that is less fancy but that you feel you might wear again, and will get more use out of it.
Consider looking for something vintage or second hand that you can get for cheap but then tailor to fit you. There are some great unique prom dresses out there just waiting to be found, and sometimes a piece just needs a minor alteration to look a bit more modern. Another advantage is you can be sure to have a dress with a back-story that no one else will be wearing. As long as you find something that you feel comfortable in you will look great, but more importantly you will feel great and be able to dance all night!
