In the modern world of one-click shopping and access to endless possibilities, narrowing down the prom dress that best fits you and will make your prom night a magical one can seem like an insurmountable task.

Do not fear. It can be done, even for the most indecisive of buyers. Selecting the best piece for you is a delicate combination of paying attention to fashion trends, taking your time, knowing what you like, and never ignoring your impulses. So, how do you go about choosing the perfect prom dress?

Take Your Time

Draw out sketches of what you think you might like. Do your research. Google image search, social media, Pinterest, periodicals, fashion magazines, store windows; there are an endless amount of resources to look at other. Also, if you buy the wrong prom dress too quickly, you might run into issues later on. If height is an issue, or perhaps you need to get additional custom hemming or any other work done on a dress to make it fit properly, you’ll want to give yourself plenty of time to complete these adjustments long before the night of the dance.

Know the Current Trends

Part of your research can include investigate current trends, cuts, and colors, and seeing if any of these choices give you any joy. Reds, yellows, and lilac are the prime colors for the 2019 season, but the most important thing, as always, is finding what works for you among all of these fashion trends.

Know Yourself

Specificity is key, and knowing yourself and what you like. Compare designs and fashions with your face and body, and discover what you love. Discover your neckline relative to the cut of your prom dress. Find out what looks best on you, what is most comfortable, and what the perfect cut is for you.

Trust Yourself

Perhaps even more important than knowing yourself, is having the ability to trust this knowledge and make a decision accordingly. If you do this, you will be able to be inspired (see next) and make the right judgment at the right time.

Get Inspired

Create a Pinterest board. Seek the opinion of those who have recently been through the process of choosing a prom dress. Watch movies. Go to concerts, art museums, farmer’s markets. Allow yourself to be open and available to get inspired by the world you live in, at anytime.

Try Them On!

Physically trying different options on and seeing what they look like on you in the mirror (or mirrors). Take pictures. Compare options. Consult with a tailor about alterations if you love the look and feel of a dress but can’t quite get the train or top to fit your needs.

This is also the time to get creative with your search; for example, if you are looking for a long prom dress, investigate not just the princess and ball gown looks, but try different lengths in other sizes. You never know when something’s going to present itself as the perfect option for you.

 

At the end of the day, it’s not about the price of the dress, but the way it makes you feel. Never settle for expense over quality or aesthetic. If you put the necessary time in to determining which option is best for you, your reward will come in the form of an unforgettable night, immortalized in the pictures and memories that you will have forever.
