How do I choose a prom dress for my body type?
For many of us, prom night is the first time we’ll have stepped out in a black-tie gown – meaning that it might make for unfamiliar sartorial territory. This is why you want to make sure that your dress not only looks good, but makes you feel great, too. Choosing a dress to suit your body type should start by looking closely at the pieces you wear most often and understanding what they have in common. If you love to wear an A-line silhouette that nips you in at the waist before flaring out to a full skirt, then a ’50s-inspired style will work for you. Anyone who prefers something more fluid, on the other hand, should carry this through to their prom dress and look for a sleek and simple silhouette, like a slip dress. In a nutshell, the best prom dress for your body type is one that makes you feel brilliant.
Can you wear a black dress to prom?
We’re not sure where the negative connotations of wearing black to prom came from, because in Miss Vogue’s eyes it is a wildly chic move that hints at a slightly anarchic inclination. We’re all for it. Plus, as the late, great Karl Lagerfeld once mused: “One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress.” Next question, please.
What is a reasonable price for a prom dress?
Setting a budget for your prom purchase is imperative. You don’t want to spend anything that will leave you with unwanted debts or put you or your loved ones in a place of financial difficulty. Owing to the nature of evening gowns and the techniques and fabrics often employed, the cost of them naturally exceeds your day-to-day cotton dresses, but there are plenty of options out there for every budget. Monies aside, you want to make sure that your prom dress proves to be a savvy investment for your wardrobe, so you don’t fall victim to a one-wear fashion find. Choose a style that you know you’ll wear time and time again. Those who are looking for a one-night-only style detour might find that a rental service like By Rotation or Hurr suits their needs.
What are the best prom dresses for 2021?
After a year spent indoors, designers were excited to present us with dresses made for celebrating for spring/summer 2021. Whether that was Miuccia Prada swiftly adding sequins and satin details to sportswear at Miu Miu or Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen giving pretty tulle gowns a post-punk makeover by swapping polite heels for chunky boots, there was a party-ready approach for every school leaver to take inspiration from. This is not the summer to be a wallflower, either. Colour burst onto the catwalks in sunshine yellow, fire-engine reds and clashes of head-turning fuchsias and stand-out lime greens. Take this to your leaver’s ball or prom by mixing and clashing shades that feel fresh and truly statement-making. There’ll be no missing you. Miss Vogue’s ultimate advice is to only wear an outfit that makes you feel like your best self.
From the high street’s finest to a selection of dreamy red-carpet-ready gowns, these are Miss Vogue’s favourite prom dresses of 2021.
