Yellow makes a big fashion statement and is sure to stand out. You can also pick from many other gorgeous colors. Black, white, blue, pink, red, green and purple are all top choices. You can also add color through beaded detail or embellishment. A touch of gold or silver will make you sparkle on the dance-floor. Start the search early for your prom dress. Go shopping with your friends and start to narrow down the features you're looking for. Do you want a sleeveless dress or a gown with a long sleeve? What is the price range? These are all important to consider.
At your local store, try on one of each dress style. An open back gown, a fitted lace dress, even a jumpsuit. See what kind of party look you want to create. For a designer or red carpet look, pick a plunging neck and high slit skirt. For a girly choice, a cap sleeve gown with pleats and a halter neckline. Experiment with what suits your body shape. The correct size should fit well on the waist and bust. Don't overlook a short yellow dress with a simple v-neck. This could be a cute cocktail look for future events. You can even re-wear it to Homecoming.
You may also want a ball gown with sleeves or shoulder straps. These can look beautiful in tulle or sequins, showing off your shoulders elegantly. This can have a high end or a couture look. Especially if you pick a floral print to match. Next, think about how to add accessories to your dress. You need to think about the sort of shoes and bag that team up well. Search for simple but sexy designs that you can wear with other outfits in the future. Ivory or nude heels are always a classic.
