This article will discuss some great tips for getting to know what colour works on you perfectly.

 

First, it’s best to consider your skins undertones.

We all have a different undertone below the surface of our main skin tone. This is the shade we want to ensure the potential prom dress matches with. The skin undertones can be split up into three main groups which are:

  • Cool (reddish undertones)
  • Warm (peachy or gold undertones)
  • Neutral (a combination of both)

Now, you have determined your skins undertone it’s time to choose the best shade for you! It is widely accepted that warm undertones tend to suit red, orange, yellow and cream dresses. If you are cool then blues, deeper greens and purples will look like they were made for you. Alternatively, if you are a combination of the two then you have some flexibility to alternate between the two.

 

That being said, let’s check out some of the best colour gowns in for 2016:

  • White/neutral shades: white is no longer the typical wedding dress colour (well not for prom at least). For 2016 white prom dresses have been popular for the more bohemian and free-flowing look. It’s simple and it’s chic!
  • Bold reds: red prom dresses have always been a head-turner and are definitely one of the most stand-out colours. If you want to create an impact and embrace your sexy side, then a red prom dress will help!
  • Gold/silver/black combinations: this timeless, yet elegant colour combination is beautiful for two-pieces which are really big this year. Not only that but for A-line and mermaid gowns this seems to be a really great choice for a glamorous prom look.

Those are the tips I can suggest to you. Take note of these tips whenever you’re searching for a prom dress so you can be certain that you’ll be wearing a dress that looks great on you.

Within another month, teen girls everywhere will be rushing to boutiques looking to find the ideal Homecoming dress. Traditionally, the Homecoming dance ends the celebration of week-long events. For this reason, dresses are often sparkly and shorter than Prom dresses are in the spring, we know looking at formal dresses can be stressful so consider using some of these tips as you look for your 2016 Homecoming dress:

 

  • Do some research. Know the dress code for your school as in what length is too short and if cut-outs are allowed. Once you know that, you can peruse different styles and colors to see what you like the best.

 

 

  • Choose a dress by your body type. Petite girls can rock out in short, flared dresses because those elongate them and make them look taller. However, remember to check the dress code as most schools require the skirt to be at least 17 inches long. If you have a pear-shaped body, try opting for a gown with lots of beading on the bodice or an edgy one-shoulder gown, which will keep eyes up top and not your unwanted curves.

 

  • Select a Homecoming dress that you’ll feel comfortable in for several hours. Generally, you’ll be mingling and on the dance floor dancing the night away so you want a dress you move around in easily. This is often why teens lean towards the short flared options. If you choose a bandage dress, check that if overs your entire rear end when you’re bent over. Consider choosing a breathable fabric, such as jersey, which is comfortable and skirts your curves easily.

 

  • Pay attention to 2016 Homecoming dress trends. This year, two-piece gowns are still popular. Sherri Hill and Faviana both include several two-piece gowns in their line. Ombre sequins and other sparkling beads really add to details and Homecoming is all about bling. Both Mori Lee Sticks and Stones and Blush carry several sparkly dresses in their 2016 line. Floral splash prints remain trendy as well. I love the Sherri Hill black dress and the A-line Jovani floral dress.

  • Come prepared if you buy your dress in-store. This means wearing or bringing the correct undergarments, bra, and shape wear with you so you can consider how a dress lies over your curves.  If you’ve purchased them, bring along your preferred shows because this will play into the length of your dress and alterations.

 

  • Get other opinions whether you purchase your dress online or in-store. After you’ve bookmarked a few on your computer, show them to your mom and your best friend. Ask them which styles they prefer. If you try some in store, ask their opinion, on which one flatters your body type the most or highlights your hair color and skin tone the best.

 

These are only a few important tips to adhere to when shopping for your Homecoming dress. If you try these, you’ll have a shot of becoming Homecoming Queen.

 

Friday Fashion – Pretty in Pink with Chi Chi London

A friend once set me a challenge, post a song to Facebook that I loved, beginning with the Letter P. There were a few contenders, including a lot of songs by Pulp and Parklife by Blur, but in the end I opted for a song that is not only a total classic, but is also the soundtrack to one of my fave 80s chick flicks.

Pretty in Pink is the ultimate 80s chick flick, starring the brilliant Molly Ringwald as Andie, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who attracts the attention of the lovely Andrew McCarthy as Blane (those 80s movie names). The film culminates in the prom scene, where Andie wears a pink dress – hence the title. But the dress is so god damm awful, you can’t help but wish that Andie had chosen a real ‘pretty in pink’ design from Chi Chi London!

I mean...

I mean…

Chi Chi London has been gaining a steady reputation as a place to go for a standout prom dress, the designs are beautiful and have a touch of vintage about them, but they come in a range of lengths to suit everyone, which means they can also be worn for weddings, race days and summer garden parties too.

The current collection is frothy and fabulous, and has a real emphasis on Molly Ringwald style pink shades. As a fan of pink (I don’t think you can ever have enough of it quite frankly), this collection makes me want to sing – it is just so soft and pretty. And if are a lover of pink, you are in good company, with Florence Welch, Rihanna, Jessica Alba and Blake Lively all wearing the girliest (is that a word???)  of hues recently.
