By on August 28, 2015

Finding the right prom dress for your big social event is winning half the battle. Once you are done with that, the next task on your agenda should be locating the right accessories. A few small details is all it takes to transform your look from good to Wow! And, here are some tips to get the details right, so you look stunning on your prom night.

Play around with color till you get the mix just right

Don’t let the color of your prom dress dictate your choice of accessories. It is boring to find a pretty girl dressed in a single color from head to toe, however brilliant the color may be. You should instead mix it with complementary or neutral colored accessories for a more interesting combination. An easy way to find the colors that go well together is to take a look at the color wheel and choose accessories in colors that lie opposite to the shade of your dress. If you aren’t comfortable mixing and matching colors, choose jewelry and accessories in neutrals or silver and gold, and you cannot go wrong.

Get a cool-looking manicure

It is the little details like well-filed nails with beautiful polish that add finesse to your look. Don’t just go with the traditional French manicure, or a single shade. Think of how you will deck up your fingers and find colors and designs that will go well with your prom dress. Make sure you wait till a day or two before prom to prepare your nails, so it stays fresh. You can either match your nail art to the designs on your dress or go for subtle sophistication with a hint of sparkle. Don’t forget to complete the effect with a statement ring.

Choose a stunning, but practical clutch

Not only does a matching clutch refine your total look, it is also a practical necessity. This is where you can stash your makeup, hairbrush and other essentials. Just make sure that it isn’t too bulky. A good accessory should work with your dress; not against it. Make sure that the texture and finish goes well with the colors and fabric of your dress. If in doubt, choose a solid colored one or go with a neutral shade like black, silver or nude that will match any color.

Pull your look together

There is a lot going on with the dress, hairstyle, accessories and makeup. To look great make sure that you balance it out by sticking to few dramatic elements and not overdoing it. If your dress has elaborate details, go easy with the accessories. Simple silver necklaces or a string of pearls will be sufficient. Avoid a necklace altogether if your dress has a halter neck. If your dress is relatively simple, dress it up with interesting and bigger accessories.

You now know how to get the finer details of your prom look done. If you haven’t chosen your prom dress yet, visit us at Best for Bride today and make your pick.
