Prom is one of the biggest (and most glamorous) event in high school and I remember my own hunt for the perfect prom dress in senior year. But… I made the mistake of shopping last minute for my own prom dress so I would highly suggest you shop weeks and even months ahead to get the best deals and picks. Those Macy’s racks gets SUPER messy closer to April and May with sizes and styles in complete disarray. I combed through so many racks just to find a dress and not to mention the fitting room line!
Beside dress and shoes, I think one of the most important aspect (as far as I remembered) for prom was… hair. What kind of hairstyle best fits your dress, makeup and ties the whole look together. Just remember that sometimes, simple is best (an advice I sure as heck wish someone gave me back them). You can check out the prom hairstyles infographic below and I hope you find the guide useful in helping you find the perfect prom style for you!
In recent years, the trend for dresses seems to be sleek in both form fitting and flowy styles. That makes shopping the prom dress trend a lot easier and affordable when you’re not after those princess ballgowns (though you could still rock out to those!). Here are some fashionable prom dress picks all under $100 each.
