Benefit from the 2012 prom whatever style suits you best
Benefit from the 2012 prom whatever style suits you best.
Forget about the frills, classic and stylish is in with floor length gowns, with completely strapless, or off one shoulder look.
Not those girls with beautiful legs are going to be ignored. There will be precisely the same classic styles available in short prom dresses, using bold colours with strong bright accessories.
The general buzz will be easy and bold, with the accessories making more of a splash compared to the last few years. Don’t exaggerate though. One or two strong accessories like large belts, large necklaces in strong contrasting statements.
The shades to look out for are going to be teals and turquoises, bright purples, strong raspberry.
As always, there is the counter-style style, which can be going for white, but only if you have a natural tan (no orange girls please)!
But as always, the best style can be your style. If you’ve got legs, demonstrate to them off; if you’ve got shoulders go strapless with some strong jewellery. Always play for your strengths and don’t let fashion receive the better of you – use fashion to allow you to look and feel great!
But just because the UK is developing its Proms, where do the fashion ideas originated from? In the early days, it was a copy of what our American cousins did. Today, there are a growing army of UK designers creating beautiful prom dresses and ball gowns for your once in a lifetime event.
Stating that though, American still influences a lot of the design aspects of what you will really be wearing at this year’s 2012 prom.
Here is a rundown of what you can expect UK prom dress designers to make for their 2012 prom dress collections:
A great deal of bold colour and bold shapes. Last year’s prom gowns were used strong colours, however, many of the designs were a little too “sleeping beauty”. Look out in 2012 for too long sleek dresses with deep v necks. Much more skin on display this season girls!
Bold colours would have been a popular fashion trend for prom dresses 2012. Though the kit is similar to prom 2011, the style of the dresses differs. Forget about fairytale princess dresses. Long, sleek dresses would be the hottest fashion trend for 2012. A few of the dresses feature halters and deep V-necks. Strapless dresses with sweetheart necklines can also be a popular look.
Let’s remember something, Proms are an US invention. The decision parents about how they ended their school days and they’ll talk about the “school disco”. That’s it, a disco, and a lot probably your parents were required to attend in their school uniforms!
Thanks to a smaller world due much simply to the television plus the internet, and the passion for some things American, you’ve got the Prom have fun with.
