Prom Style

When it comes to prom and planning the perfect outfit for school formals, make your fashion fantasy come true! If you’re wondering what to wear with a prom dress, you’ll find plenty of styling ideas put together by the Polyvore community. Fairytale princess, screen starlet, rebel or something uniquely you: what’s your prom style?
Whether you’ve always wanted to feel like a princess or simply want a fun night with your friends, there are many prom dresses to choose from. Red carpet events influence the latest formal wear trends, so look to celebrity style for gown and beauty inspiration! The school dance is the perfect setting for glamour and expressing yourself. Choose a floor-length gown for high drama, in a bright color or jewel tone, and perhaps embellished with sequins. If your style leans more ethereal, go with icy pastels or shimmering light metallics. Prefer a little more edge? Consider adding some punk elements like Dr. Martens and studded jewelry.
You can find beautiful budget-friendly outfits that only look expensive. Don’t rule out party dresses and cocktail dresses in your search. Get an inexpensive frock and focus on a gorgeous prom hairstyle, makeup and bling to glamorize your look! You don’t need a tiara to make your tresses sparkle either--simply add crystal hair clips. Finish your look with strappy heels, dangly earrings and a sparkling necklace or cuff bracelet. Don’t forget to get a little handbag that’ll carry your essentials while still letting you dance hands-free: a clutch to tuck under your arm, a wristlet or an evening purse with a delicate chain shoulder strap will work.
From semi-formal homecoming dances to winter formals to the ultimate high school celebration of prom, be inspired to put your best look together. Most importantly, be yourself and have a ball!
