I bought this gown for my prom. I bought in ivory.

http://www.jovani.com/evening-dresses/one-shoulder-embellished-gown-evening-dress-style-158523-8937

I would like to know if you think I should do my hair like the model or if I should go for a more soft up-do like Taylor Swift’s

I know I can’t wear my hair down at all because it’s long and it would take away from the gown…but which of those two styles (sleek and soft/romantic) would be best?

Also on the topic of earrings should I go for earrings with small stones like Taylor Swift’s (or something similar to hers) or should I go for large stones like these:

Clutches…any recommendations?
or do you think that this Valentino clutch would complement my dress:

& finally pls post any links to some silver sandals for the occasion!

Thank you so much for your help! :D

For hair, definitely go with the Taylor Swift style-soft and sweet, to counterbalance the dramatic lines of the dress. I like her earrings, as well, to complement the fine silver stitching on the dress. For a clutch, yours is beautiful but a bit much. I’d go with something colorful to liven up the outfit-maybe red, or maybe a cream and black snakeskin. As for shoes, go with something strappy and silver. Hope I helped!

I agree, definitely go with the softer Taylor Swift hair. The dress is gorgeous! I think you could wear Taylor’s earrings, or you could wear the bigger ones. Since the dress is fairly simple you can deck it out with jewelry. For a clutch I would go for something simple, sleek, and black to compliment the ivory. Maybe something like this, I like the detailing:

For the shoes I agree they must be strappy! These I think would compliment the lines of the dress:

Beautiful dress. I agree on the taylor swift hair. As far as bag I would go with cream or a leather brown, to contrast.
