Wearing A White Prom Dress: My Top Tips

Back when I was at school - many moons ago - choosing my prom dress felt like a big deal. I remember sitting on my parents' PC and scrolling through page after page of Google image results for prom dresses (this was back before Pinterest was a thing) for hours on end drawing up my plans of what I wanted in a dress. In the end, I opted for an aqua blue, lace number from Coast. Looking back, I love the dress I chose but one of my friends went for a gorgeous white number and I remember feeling so jealous of that dress. It was stunning. So, if I had my time again, I would probably go for a white dress - mostly so I could have my A Cinderella Story moment, to be fair. However, there really is a knack to carrying off a white dress. I mean, you certainly don’t want to look like a bride walking down the aisle, and it is essential that you choose a shade of white that complements your skin tone. So, here are a few tips to help you make the right choices.

Choosing the Right Fabric It isn’t just the shade of white that you need to consider, you also need to think about your choice of fabric. Satin is one good choice, while you might prefer cotton, or even a wool gown (which would be a little warmer). If you search online for 2020 long white prom dresses, you can browse a wide selection of stunning white prom gowns and they all come with the option of easy and secure home delivery too.
Underwear That Matches your Skin Tone When looking for suitable underwear, you are advised to stick to a plain bra and pants that matches your skin tone - and avoid anything with lace or pattern of any sort as this will be visible through the dress. The goal is to make the underwear shade blend perfectly with the dress.
Choosing the Right Shoes A white gown is the perfect backdrop to add some rich colour. As far as shoes go, the classic red works well - maybe even accompanied by a red belt and matching handbag. If red isn’t your colour, emerald green or cool blue are both great options. Or keep it classic with monochrome! Adding black accessories makes the look really classy and a red lip would make the whole ensemble pop.

Choosing Accessories for a White Prom Gown As far as jewellery goes, diamonds and sterling silver always work with white, and a pair of diamond hanging earrings are ideal, along with a long necklace. You could try stacking bracelets, which can be very effective, especially with many sparking stones. One thing you should do is spend a couple of hours having a full dress rehearsal at home in front of the mirror, with perhaps the input of a good friend, as this will give you self-confidence when you step into the limelight on the big night.

Choosing the right shade of white that matches your skin tone will ensure that you make the right choice, and with the right accessories, your prom night will be one to be remembered for all the right reasons. The online designer dress boutique is the place to look for the ideal white prom dress, and with careful choice of fabric, you will certainly turn some heads on this very special occasion.
