Be PROM PERFECT


GRECIAN GODDESS
When it comes to long prom dresses, I usually steer away from anything that is anything like this.
I'm a firm believer in the power of a simple dress.
Due to the basic (though beautiful, of course) nature of the gown, make sure to add sparkling accessories to finish your look! 
(all items are LINKED, just click!)

LOOK 1
Aidan Mattox dress
Dannijo earrings
KOTUR clutch
Vince Camuto shoes
LOOK II
Hoaglund New York dress
Belargo earrings
Banana Republic clutch
Jean-Michel Cazabat shoes
LOOK III
Halston Heritage dress
Erickson Beamon earrings
Monsoon clutch
Office shoes


LOVELY LACE
Lace is a tricky textile for longer lengths, so go for shorter hems in these intricate dresses. Due to the complex nature of the fabric, accessorize accordingly with a simple clutch and heels. 
+All of the pieces I picked are SUPER affordable--everything is UNDER $100!!!
LOOK 1
Beginning Boutique dress
Dorothy Perkins shoes
ASOS clutch
LOOK II
Beginning Boutique dress
Lovely People shoes
Dorothy Perkins clutch
LOOK III
Beginning Boutique dress
ALDO shoes
Oasap clutch


COLOR CODE
One of my favorite ideas for prom is pairing a simple, block colored frock with an outstanding necklace that ups the whole look.
Keeping the other accessories relatively neutral makes sure that the look is not too fussy.
All pieces are also UNDER $100!!!
LOOK 1
ASOS dress
ASOS necklace
Joia shoes

LOOK II

Get ready for prom!

I had prom a few weeks ago and I did the Grecian goddess look so i might be a little bias, but i would vote for that look.
