Long, Short, Ball or Prom; dresses for school leavers

When the tradition of the Prom first began over hundred years ago, you had no choice. Girls had to wear one style of ball gown. They had a certain selection of colours; certain limited choice of fabrics and had to keep most of their body covered up.

As the years passed and fashions changed, the prom dress moved with the times, though slowly, there was a tradition to be followed.

By the time the prom ball moved across the pond from America to the UK in the late 1990s, luckily things had greatly changed.

No longer constrained by one limited style, with mass media celebrities everywhere showing off a beautiful range of different designer wear, girls can choose a style to suit them and not the event.

Although prom and ball dress fashions do change year to year, what doesn’t is the variety of styles. Have great legs; get a slinky short ball dress. Have a gorgeous curvy body; go for a longer style showing off those great curves. Do you have a cat walk height physique; it’s your choice!

Today, the choice of short or long, ball or prom dress style is up to you, so go with what shows you off the best. Look through the fashion magazines and get a feel for what stars and celebs with a similar body shape to you are wearing. Check out a few web sites and see what the fashion buzz is.

Along with the right length dress or gown is colour. What colour suits your complexion and your shape? No point wearing the “in” colour if it doesn’t make you look good. Darker colours are always slimming. Dresses that are just one shade also help to smooth out any unwanted curves. You can disguise the areas that you don’t want notices, and accessorise other parts of your body that you want noticed!

Years ago, there was one trend for the year. Today, with so many fashion designers each going their own way, there might be five “in” colours. Just pop over to YouTube and have a look at the latest cat walk shows. You’ll see loads of different hot trends, one of which is going to suit you like a glove. And with some great accessories, that glove is going to look her best.

Along with the greater choice and variety of prom dresses you can wear, is the variety of online and offline shops you can get that prom outfit from. In fact, you’ll probably find more choice from the online shops than down your high street. Plus, if money is a consideration, the online shops are generally a lot cheaper as they have fewer overheads.
