Spring Prom Trends 2012
There are so many choices this season it will be easy to find a great look for your Prom! No matter what your skin tone or body type there are formal dresses to flatter everyone. Bring the classic Greek goddess sophistication to the event, whether you opt for a strapless or one-shoulder style. A corset cut or mermaid shape will accent a curvy figure and the exciting High-Low skirt helps show off great legs. Sleeves are even making a showing thanks to a high-profile wedding of late.
Pale shades of blush and white give a delicate impression. Bold hues of yellow, green, blue, electric purple or sunset colors insure you will be noticed. The dress is a big part of your Prom but the accessories are every bit as important to your look. Any of these colors can be found with plenty of sparkling touches so choose your jewelry with care. Accessories in contrasting colors give your look a fresh, young appeal.
Should you pick a style to bare your shoulders, you'll want dramatic earrings. Brush shoulders with long, dangling crystals to catch the moonlight or wear chandelier earrings to bring focus to your eyes. Drops of all kinds continue to be popular with an emphasis on a large, single stone. We're seeing a return in popularity of gold jewelry, which looks spectacular with shades of orange.
You can be right to the minute on trend with a round collared, bib necklace. It will make your neck look graceful and you'll be complimented on your good taste. For the body conscious shapes you may skip a necklace and go for big, bangle bracelets instead. Many of these pieces can be made at home, giving you looks that are completely custom and one-of-a-kind. For this special occasion why not try one of the big, statement rings? You could even bling out some strappy sandals with Swarovski flatbacks to give your toes twinkle. Jeweled brooches worn in an up-do hairstyle or pinned to a fabric clutch can be worn way after Prom is over. Make some fun earrings and some Prom memories!
