Fashion Club has partnered with Caché on our exclusive prom trends blog series. Today's topic? How to pick a prom dress that flatters you...
You think your legs are short and your chest is flat? We’re our own worst critics. But when you’re shopping for a prom gown, try not to be too critical. Instead, be honest. If you understand your shape and dress to flatter it, you’ll dazzle.
Lucky you, you wear both long and short styles well. But avoid flowing silhouettes that make you look like a waif who needs a sandwich. Instead, emphasize your curves with something fitted.
Show off that waist and those hips with a contoured silhouette. And if you want to emphasize yourself from the waist up, go for a puff skirt.
Elongate and strike a balance between your beautiful broad shoulders and strong legs with a gown that hangs instead of clings.
A full-length dress doesn’t have the same kind of impact if you’re half length. Instead, flaunt what you’ve got with a shorter, figure-hugging dress that shows that it’s all about proportion.
Blessing and curse. For prom night, a dress with straps and a neckline that leaves at least a little to the imagination will minimize discussion of your assets and maximize your wow factor.
If you don’t have a gown yet, it’s time to get shopping. Prom night is fast approaching—we can’t wait!
