In the run-up to prom season, girls across the country are looking for the perfect dress to dazzle the crowd with. Prom is a huge deal, an event that you’ll have spent many years preparing for. Not least because it marks the end of an era, but also because you may have dreamed of donning the perfect fairy-tale gown and matching crown. Now that time has come to find the perfect prom dress from the stunning collection here at Karim London
Choosing The Right Shade of Prom Dress
Prom dresses come in every shade you can imagine, which means you have limitless possibilities, but this also means you might feel overwhelmed by the choices available to you. By now, you should have a good idea of the colours that work for you and that you feel confident in. Choosing the right shade for your prom dress should be no different.
Redheads look a million dollars in strong shades such as green, purple or blue so why not choose a spectacular design such as our Camilla gown?
Girls with blonde hair can complement their locks by dressing in soft pastels such as the baby pink of our Isabel gown.
Brunettes are often lucky enough to suit any colour of dress, so long as it complements their skin tone. For example, those with paler skin might appear washed out in lighter colours, in comparison to others who might glow when wearing the same fabric.
Choosing The Right Style
Although you’ll probably want to choose glamour over comfort when selecting your prom dress, it does pay to consider how you’re planning to spend the evening. If you know that you’ll want to dance the night away, then it’s important to choose a prom dress style which allows plenty of movement. A dress with a leg split such as the Adalene or the Annabel would be the perfect choice as they will allow you to sashay your way around the dance floor.
If dancing isn’t for you and you’d prefer to spend the evening mingling, then a fishtail shaped dress will show off your silhouette and ensure that all eyes are on you. The Tia gown is an elegant floor length number with a mermaid cut to the knee before opening out into a full diamante net gown.
Dressing For Your Shape
Prom princesses come in different shapes and sizes and it’s important to acknowledge this when choosing your prom dress. If you’re petite or curvy, then a corset style dress can help to pull everything in, whilst giving you the support you need. Darker colours are particularly flattering and also provide the glitz you expect from prom night.
If you’re slimmer, then you’re more likely to suit a dress which accentuates your leaner physique. A dress with an empire waistline such as the Lara design will look effortlessly sexy.
The Finishing Touches
Remember that no prom look is complete without paying attention to the finishing touches. Once you’ve selected your dress, you can then use this as a base to choose your jewellery, bag and hair accessories. The trick is to make sure that the look is balanced and in harmony rather than being too overpowering.
