Prom season is here and I’m happy to team up with Charlotte Russe on bringing you a fun “inspirafashion” ;) post if you’re having trouble finding a dress in particular. I remember when I had prom (yes quite a while ago) BUT I’m happy to say I found the right dress. It all has to do with the fit and the color. Here I styled two different dresses from Charlotte Russe, two different silhouettes and completely different colors.
I say when trying to find a prom dress, the most important thing is to browse around and start researching what catches your eye. Start out small with the color, then onto the silhouette you want.
For those who love dresses that you can dance more around in (personally my favorite too), I’d choose the “skater” dress — it’s free flowy and flirty. Here with this sleek and classy Charlotte Russe’s skater dress, it has a lovelier silhouette with the off the shoulder detail. If you wear white, I’d say keep the color palette soft with neutral nude colors — here I styled it with nude sandals and a white crossbody purse.
If you love a tighter fit, but classy silhouette with the midi hem, I would suggest getting a bodycon dress but with these its kind of tricky with the fit. If you’re a shortie (like me) midi dresses can be intimidating, but how to make it work is to wear taller strappy heels, they elongate the legs. Also, try to find a fun bright color, here I chose this romantic Charlotte Russe lace fuschia dress. It’s prom and a time to also have fun with bright colors for Spring!
I hope this post helped with inspiring you to pick out your prom dress! If you guys want any more styling advice on prom dresses, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments or email me directly.
