It’s that time of year again! The event every girl in her senior year looks forward to, her Prom/Debs night. It’s a night where you get to let loose and go out with a bang by attending a swanky party at the end of the year with all your school friends. All while look fabulous in the perfect gown!
The classic bombshell look is timeless, it works for almost any formal occasion and is guaranteed to make you feel like the belle of the ball! This look was made famous by Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe and is a go-to look for many Hollywood starlets, attending red carpet events, to this day.
Red was a well loved colour by Marilyn Monroe, she was rarely seen without her classic red lipstick and alluring cat-eye makeup. To get this look, make sure your skin is primed and prepped with a flawless base, then focus on the eyes and lips, which are the focus of this makeup look. Using black liquid liner, draw a pin-up inspired flick along each eye lid, then apply mascara and fake lashes to give your eyes that sultry, bombshell aesthetic. Finishing off with a bright red pout, use a red lip liner to define your lips and apply a blood red shade to your lips to complete to look.
As Marilyn Monroe famously sang, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!”. Keep your jewellery simple and chic by opting for timeless pieces like drop earrings, a dainty bracelet or a sparkly ring. Of course, they may not be real diamonds but no one will ever know! By matching your accessories will tie everything together nicely. Less is more when it comes to achieving a classic look.
And then we come to the most important aspect of every Prom look, the dress! I absolutely love these beautiful Prom Dresses in these timeless and flattering styles.
If you are anything like me when I was in High School, I wanted to attend my Prom wearing something a little less conventional. Of course, I still wanted to feel glamorous, so I opted for a dress and look that suited my own personal style. You can add elements of your personality to your looks by playing up key aspects of your look, like your makeup, nails and accessories.
A fun way to make your Prom style more edgy, is by getting a gothic inspired manicure. Why not try feminine black stiletto nails, with a hint of colour on one nail to make your manicure pop!
A dark smokey eye can really add drama any formal look or if your colour scheme is mostly black, why not add a pop of colour to your lips to draw attention to your face. Also, by carrying an eye-catching clutch or handbag, you can help break up the outfit and tie the entire look together.
JecicaDress.com has some fantastic options for alternative girls looking for something chic and stylish to wear to Prom. I love the cuts on both of the dresses shown above, a high slit can really help lengthen your legs, while a body hugging dress helps accentuate your beautiful curves.
No matter what look you choose to wear to prom, remember to have the time of your life!
