After finding the perfect prom dress and the perfect date, all you need to have a perfect night are matching accessories. Though accessories aren’t the most important part of your prom experience, they can definitely make or break an outfit. These simple steps help you match the right accessories to your prom dress.
Try to choose a handbag that matches the color of your prom dress. A plain satin handbag works well and allows you to add your own embellishments, such as a flower or a few beaded stars. Ensure that your handbag is large enough to carry your lipstick, cell phone and car keys, but is still small enough not to be a drag on your evening.
Pick glitzy and sparkly hair clips and tiaras. These not only add a dramatic flair to your outfit, but also give you a small reminder to remember your prom night. Get clips or a tiara that match your dress and jewelry. Keep in mind that if you are going to wear tiara, take it with you when you get your hair done.
The jewelry you choose depends entirely upon your own personal taste and the style of your prom dress. For flashy jewelry, feel free to dress yourself to the nines on prom night. If you hesitate to wear too much jewelry, a simple necklace and pair of earrings should be enough to jazz up your look.
Accessorize your outfit with earrings and a necklace that highlight your dress but aren’t so overwhelming. If your prom dress is sequined, wear matching sparkling gem necklace and earrings. For simple and elegant dress, choose diamond or pearl earnings and a matching necklace. Diamonds or fake diamonds are classics that they match any dress.
Complete your outfit with a pair of gloves, as these add glamour to any dress. Above-the-elbow gloves are more glamorous and elegant, whereas below-the-elbow gloves add a more casual elegance to your prom outfit. Gloves that match your dress or a contrasting color give a more fun look.
After selecting your prom dress, shoes, and hairstyle selected, accessories will add the final touch to a stunning prom ensemble.
