Prom Dresses, Style Tips 2018

Prom Fashion Style 2018

Updated 3 October 2018 – Clothing and Accessories added for upcoming holiday party season. It’s that time of year when you’re wondering what to wear to prom (or party), we’re here to help by bringing some inspiration and sharing our favourite discoveries. Whether you want to blend in or stand out we’ve got you covered. Prom 2018 here we come. Once you’ve decided on a prom dress style, you’ll want to think about the accessories, footwear, a bag,  makeup, hair and nails. Where to get ready if you are getting ready with your friends, is there an older sister who can help with hair and makeup, are there items you can share on the day and things not to forget. Write a list of things to do and things you’ll need. Many hair salons take prom bookings for hair, makeup and nails but if that is not in your budget you had better have a practice beforehand. Choose nail colours ahead of time, think about using a bronzer. Then you can start planning how to get to your prom’s location. (Remember when planning – never trust British weather). It’s never ending but a great celebration to look forward to and remember as you celebrate the end of an era whether it’s completing exams or finishing school, enjoy it with your friends and school community.

Can You Rock These Prom Dresses

First up we found lots to report via TK Maxx long flowing formal styles, but still on point. Our top six picks have a luxurious feel.  Dare to wear flats not heels, check the dress code but flats can be just as adorable and a comfortable option.  But that will also depend on the dress hem and length, maybe wear a heel and rest your feet at every given opportunity.
