While these gowns are still popular, shorter dresses are always quite popular, too. Traditional Attire A great deal of fashion experts believe that prom dresses should be long.

Things to Consider We know that every girl wants to look stunning on her prom night. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect dress for you: 1. Check your local area for stores that specialize in prom and celebration dresses. Get an idea for prices and set a budget. Checking in a local store will not only help you to determine and stick with a budget, but you can get an idea for your size, too. Try on a couple of different sizes to see what you feel the most comfortable in. 2. Browse magazines to get an idea about the latest fashions in prom dresses. Determine the latest trends with things such as cuts, styles and colors. You can also use magazines to get ideas about hair styles, makeup and accessory options. 3. When looking at dresses, look with an open mind. You might have a certain style or color in mind but then find something else that would flatter you absolutely fantastically. 4. Consider undergarments and shoes when trying on your dresses. Prom dresses can look different depending on what is worn under them and might not work with certain shoes. If you already have the shoes picked out, try them on with the dress to see if the heel works properly with the length of the dress. 5. In addition to trying on your dress with shoes and undergarments, make sure you get a sense of your hair style, makeup and jewelry in advance, too. Certain jewelry accessories might look too short or even overbearing with certain prom dresses. It is a good idea to start looking for dresses at least 2 weeks in advance so that you have plenty of time to find exactly what you want. Every girl looks forward to prom. Choosing the perfect prom dress can definitely take time and can involve many stores and many different dresses. The important thing is that you find the one that you feel the most beautiful in. At some high schools, prom is a very fancy affair involving ballrooms, limos and sit down dinners. Longer prom dresses would be more appropriate for a formal prom. Generally, prom is a semi-formal event. Shorter dresses are more than acceptable for this type of event. You will most likely find girls wearing both short and longer lengths at your prom, depending on their personal style and taste. Consider also how much you will be moving around at your prom. If you are usually the star of the dance floor, perhaps go for a shorter length that you will not trip over. If your preference is to mix and mingle with your fellow students and sitting down much of the night to chat and enjoy a fancy dinner, perhaps a longer gown would work better for you. When you begin your search for the perfect prom dress, remember that you have many options. As discussed, it is important to start looking for the perfect prom dress at least a couple of weeks in advance. Once you have a sense of the style you want to wear, consider where you will get your hair and makeup done and go in for a trial run to make sure that your hair and makeup are exactly how you want them to look. You will be able to find magazines in the months leading up to prom showcasing the latest trends and styles from popular designers. Start browsing through these magazines with your friends to get ideas. Don’t forget that Dress Empire does indeed have a variety of options and tons of different price ranges available.
