It’s prom season!! It seems like just yesterday I was getting my hair done and thinking about my cute date….ahhh, memories. Anyway, back to 2013. I am always the person that has the perfect dress picked out months ahead only to realize the day before that I haven’t even thought about how to accessorize my perfect dress. So I aim to help! Here are my favorite accessories for 2013 prom goers everywhere.
1) Jewelry – Definitely an obvious way to make an impact with your dress. I found great pieces at Macy’s (little more fun) and at David’s Bridal (for a dressy look). The overall trend is to go with a statement necklace or long dangling earrings/chandelier earrings with a bracelet. While I love my chandelier earrings from Kendra Scott, I found that I gravitated to the dangle earrings when thinking of prom. There is also a lot of fantastic bracelets out there – chunky is the way to go here. Here are a couple of my picks:
Then, at the after prom party snap on a more casual panel when you change out of your dress.
3. Shoes are another obvious thing to ponder. Most important quality in a prom shoe is if you can dance all night in it! Try wearing your shoes at home for a while so you can break them in before the big dance. The trends for prom shoes right now are lace, color and metallic shoes.
4. Shawls will keep you warm when you are not dancing up a storm. I love the idea of an animal print to shake things up from the standard solid color.
5. Hair Accessories are a fun new trend. How about a pretty bobby pin or head wrap?
Have a fun and safe prom!
