What to Wear to Prom

Arguably one of the most important dresses in a girls’ life -following the wedding dress- your prom dress will be one of the most memorable items you’ll ever wear. You’ll probably look back at the photographs when you’ve got your own children, so it’s crucial that you dress to impress.

When it comes to prom there’s some pretty special film scenes that spring to mind, so what could be better than movie inspiration to create some gorgeous prom outfits? Here are our favourite film inspired looks, for everyone, from the girly girl to the cool tomboy.

Prom Queen

Prom-QueenInspiration: Sandy in Grease. Model wears Phase Eight. From left: Kaliko beaded lace prom dress, Faith white mid heeled sandals, Mood oval diamante headband, Van Peterson 925 rose gold insect earrings, Top Hat by Stephen Jones white woven grab bag.

We couldn’t do a prom edit without including Grease; after all, who can forget that hand-jive dance scene? The ’50s is the era most commonly associated with the high school prom, so embracing a vintage style prom dress is bound to be a fail-safe option. Add white sandals and a cute headband for a look Sandy would approve of.

Cool Girl

TomboyInspiration: Bella in Twilight. Model wears Coast. From left: Instaglam by Red Herring blue one shoulder dress, Converse black trainers, Wallis stone bow back shrug, Debut gold scattered stone envelope clutch bag, J by Jasper Conran cluster stone set bangle.

We love a glam girly look but if you prefer partywear with a little edge, look to Bella’s Twilight for inspiration. We love her boyish yet cute outfit she wore to prom, emulate her look by pairing trainers with a floaty mini dress. To add a unique and girly touch make sure your hair is tousled and a coloured stone cuff will add a little glitz.

Pretty in Pink

Pretty-in-PinkInspiration: Ariel in Footloose. Model wears Quiz. From left: No. 1 by Jenny Packham coral beaded dress, Clinique chubby stick baby tint lip balm, Ingenious sterling silver heart pendant necklace, Head Over Heels by Dune silver glitter pointed court shoes, No. 1 by Jenny Packham peach embellished clutch bag.

Prom is the perfect opportunity to be flirty and fabulous, in the most sugary sweet shades. Opt for pastel pink for a universally flattering colour that will get you in the mood to party. Take inspiration from Footloose and embrace a full length light chiffon gown to ensure all eyes are on you.
