Hi! Welcome to Dress for the Prom! This is our first official post, so I’ll provide a little background: Dress for the Prom is the little sister site of Dress for the Wedding, a popular wedding style blog. My love of creating formal looks and collages for wedding parties also extends to those headed to prom, formal dances, or homecoming.
It’s fun to dress up, and even more fun to plan out outfits and figure out which accessories and other details you like the most. I create and select the items in these collages to help inspire a complete look to help you visualize your options and to give ideas for what to wear to prom. If you like something in the look, it’s linked to the store where I found it, so that you can find it too! Since my own prom days were –ahem — a few years back, I also work with some student stylists, who make sure the looks are current and on trend. We’ll also play around with back to school styles, and other fashion and prom-related topics!
Since official prom season is a few months off, I’m starting out now with some homecoming looks. You may already have your homecoming look all picked out, since it’s only a few weeks away, but with any luck you’ll also like these styles for winter formals, and any dressed-up events you might be attending. I thought this plum sequin dress was the perfect kind of party dress to wear now to a fall formal homecoming ( I love plum colors for fall!) and then again through the holidays.
We’ll be posting new style ideas every few days, so I hope you’ll come back and check them out! In the meantime, be sure to follow us on Pinterest to keep up with everything!
