Tips on Finding Your Show-Stopping Formal StyleFebruary 22nd, 2012
Formal wear is decidedly different from street clothes, but that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate your signature everyday style into a show-stopping look for prom.
First, look through your closet and classify your style. Are you about classic lines or do you love anything trendy? Do you like bold colors or neutrals? Are you a rocker chick or a proud prep? Once you narrow your style down, shopping will be a cinch.
David’s Bridal has prom styles for every type of gal. Check out my favorites, then pick your own and save them in “My Favorite Styles” on the David’s Bridal website!
If you’re preppy:
This mauve organza dress works for girls who feel just as comfy at the country club as they do at school. The color is demure and feminine while the center brooch is simple and dainty. Plus, it’s strapless… which means it’s perfect for showing off a string of pearls.
If you’re a rocker scene chick:
This dress is perfect for girls who spend their weekends rockin’ out to their favorite bands. The black sequins will shimmer under the dance floor lights while the hot pink sash says that you’re not afraid to stand apart. The best part of this dress? The short pick-up hem!
If you’re artsy:
This strapless frock is for the girl that can mix and match prints and hues in a way that no one else can. The ruching and high-low hem combine to make this dress truly dimensional, while the colors remind me of a watercolor palette.
One-shoulder dresses are perfect for gals with toned arms and shoulders from hours spent on the field. This short charmeuse frock features beaded cut-out details on the waist and shoulders, a flattering ruched waistline, and a slimming skirt without a pouf in sight.
This princess ball gown combines a classic sweetheart neckline and a breathtaking floor-length skirt with the hottest detail of this season: beading!
You dress to turn heads and like all eyes on you, so spring for a vibrant gown with wild prints that shows just a little bit of skin and bask in the attention. This bright gown features a front slit, an x-back and a beautifully beaded waist.
