If you are going to a school or college prom this summer, you will probably be wanting to find the perfect princess prom dress to wear. Most girls dream of being a princess and with all the talk of the royal wedding, Princesses (and Princes) are very much on most peoples mind. For many, a prom is the first occasion that they will have to get really dressed up in an elaborate prom dress and they definitely want to make the most of it. But if you are only really used to wearing jeans and casual clothes, how do you go about finding the perfect princess prom dress?
Pick your colour carefully
One of the most important factors when choosing a prom dress or any other dress is the colour. Whilst a pink tulle gown may be your idea of a princess prom dress, if pink isn’t your colour it won’ t have the desired effect. The perfect princess prom dress doesn’t have to be a really feminine colour, royal blue prom dresses are not only on trend but also look very regal. Look in your wardrobe and work out which colours clothes really look good on you, perhaps one of these colours would be the best choice for prom dress. Celebrity dresses are also a great source of inspiration. Look for a celebrity with a similar hair colour and skin tone to you and see which colours they choose to wear for their red carpet celebrity dresses.
Choose a style that flatters
Whilst in our heads we always picture a prom dress as having a really full skirt, in reality this does not suit everyone. Look for a style that suits you, the best way to work this out is to try on a variety of different styles of dress. Generally speaking if you are quite short try and go for a skirt that is not quite as full. Column style dresses can also look very elegant. If you are unsure whether a short prom dress style will be appropriate check out the photographs for previous years to see what everyone wore and speak to your friends to see what they are wearing.
Be realistic about price
Unless you happen to have a very lucrative Saturday job, you will probably have to beg, plead and cajole your parents in to buying you a beautiful prom dress. But you should be realistic about the price otherwise you will only end up feeling disappointed. If you are on a budget then try searching on the internet for ‘cheap prom dresses UK’ you may be very plesantly surprised by the range of affordable prom dresses available. You should try looking both for specialist online prom dress shops and also department stores. If you are buying online remember to leave plenty of time to allow you to try on the dress and get alterations if neccessary.
