How Not to Look Basic At Prom
Prom season is quickly approaching and as exciting as the event that marks the end of your high school endeavors is, it also comes with a sh*t ton of drama.
There’s the issue of finding a date, after-party plans no one can agree on, who’s smuggling the vodka in and of course, finding the dress.
While most of your petty classmates will be arguing in a group text over who’s allowed to wear that EXACT shade of emerald green, you can skip right over that drama by finding a look outside of your typical prom store. Here’s some options if you’re looking to stand out this season.
Believe it or not, you can totally turn a sundress into formal attire with the right accessories. Flower crowns, long, embellished jewelry and a pair of heels easily dress this look up. You really can never go wrong with adding some boho flare to your wardrobe and it’s unlikely that anyone would think to buy a dress that isn’t a gown. Take a look at some of our fav options.
You can easily create the illusion of a gown by pairing a long, flowing skirt with an embellished crop top. This look is super elegant and also really comfortable. Plus, you can mix and match different pieces to create something really unique that you know no one else will be wearing. And you don’t have to lift your 400 mile long skirt above your head when you have to pee.
Who says you even have to wear a dress to prom? If you’re not the super girly type but still want to celebrate one of the most formal events of your life, you can easily pass the grade with an elegant jumpsuit. Whether you want something fitted or an attire that resembles the illusion of a gown, there is a large selection of options available. Here are some of our favorites.
