What's your prom style? Whichever prom dress you choose, you know you don't want to blend in with the crowd, and with these looks, you can show off your individuality. Best of all, every prom dress below is under $50, so you can splurge on accessories to make the look all your own.
If prom night is the night to show off your feminine side, go for a pretty-yet-bold pink one-shoulder dress. Glimmering gold accessories show that you're ready to party. Start with metallic platform pumps and add a mesh clutch. Keep the gold going in your jewelry, too. A stack of gold bangles (worn on the bare shoulder side), a pink CZ cocktail ring (on the other side), and pink crystal earrings are the perfect accents.
If your idea of romance is on the darker side, try a black lace dress with a cut-out back. Black tones down the sweetness of bows on your platform heels and flowers on your leather clutch. Accent your romantic look with blood red garnet jewelry: a garnet and sterling silver bracelet and diamond and garnet heart earrings.
If you'd rather set trends than follow them, start your look with a slate blue party dress and add on unexpected accessories to make a style statement. The sweetheart neckline adds curves to your shape, and it's perfect for a multi-chain necklace. You aren't likely to see anyone else at prom wearing two-tone heels, and a Betsey Johnson two-finger tiger ring is sure to set you apart. Add more vibrant color with a bright green clutch and peridot stud earrings.
If you prefer to keep your look sophisticated, start with a glamorous teal dress with a jeweled belt and add sparkly accessories, like silver and taupe platform pumps and a metalized clutch. Diamond jewelry always brings the glamour. Diamond hoops will be gorgeous with a sleek up-do, and a diamond tennis bracelet finishes of the look.
