Fashion Club has partnered with Caché on our exclusive prom trends blog series. Here's what they have to say about prom night purse essentials:
Prom is one of those (rare) times when a girl can benefit from Boy Scout wisdom. Keep their time-tested motto in mind: Be Prepared! Don’t leave home on the big night without the following eight essentials:
1. Lip Gloss
Keep your lips kissable by carrying a gloss that will hydrate and refresh faded lip color as the night goes on.
After a few turns on the dance floor you’ll want to touch up your complexion so your shine isn’t about exertion, but dewy perfection.
3. Mini Hairspray
You may want to let your hair down but if you start the night with a chic updo, you’ll want a way to keep that loose mane tamed.
4. Bobby Pins
For keeping tricky strands in place or pinning up your locks for a change of look halfway through the night—the legendary bobby pin will make it look like the work of a pro.
5. Mini Hairbrush or Comb
Keep your tresses sleek and elegant, or backcomb them for a wilder look.
6. Nail Polish
The true perfectionist carries polish in the unlikely (but not that unlikely) case of chips or smudges.
Don’t underestimate the power of fragrance. An intoxicating perfume can make anyone dizzy with desire, so keep yours handy and give yourself a spritz when you suspect a refresh is needed.
8. Mini Mirror
Carrying a pocket size mirror isn’t vain, it’s common sense. Don’t be the girl who colored her lips outside the lines or guessed how much blush to put on.
