Fast becoming a tradition on this side of the pond, prom is less about the dancing – all about the dress.

Whether you’re a traditional gal or a modern-day fashionista, here we show you how to be pretty at prom, quintessential or quirky.

What to wear…

Footloose & Funky

If you prefer to stand out from the fashion crowd, prom doesn’t have to be all prim and proper. A classic prom-style purple dress from Debut with masses of tulle netting underlay can be magical.

Style it quirky with a leather jacket from Red Herring, eye-catching top hat and glitter heart bag from faith, with sparkling heels from Debut. Think Molly Ringwald in eighties movie Sweet Sixteen – cute co-star/dance partner optional…

Beauty editor’s tip:

To complete this funky prom look create a dramatic eyeliner flick using Bobbi Brown’s Gel Eyeliner and then coat the lashes with Benefit’s They’re Real mascara.

Strictly Chic Dancing

Full skirts like the prom dress from No. 1 by Jenny Packham that flare on the dancefloor, with a little swish and swirl, are a must-have for classic prom style.

Accessorize with a flower comb from Red Herring, cute bag from Principles by Ben de Lisi and elegant heels from Faith for the epitome of ladylike chic. Dirty dancing’s Baby had a prom – perfect sense of style – just be sure to keep the moves strictly ballroom.

Beauty editor’s tip:

Dress-up the eyes with the incredible Smoked Palette by Urban Decay.

Are you ready for prom? Head to Debenhams and we’ll style you the belle (any type) of ball.
