Prom is a magical night and is often described as the culmination of the American teenage experience.  It’s known for elaborate themes and formal evening attire.  The young men wear suits or tuxedos, while the young ladies wear the dress of their dreams.  Is finding the perfect prom dress harder than you thought?  Not to worry – Superior Sewing is here to help!  Join us as we dive a little deeper into the world of prom dresses and accessories:


What Color Should Your Prom Dress Be?

When browsing a sea of color palettes, you may forget to look for a dress color that will complement your hair and skin tone.  Remember that warm skin tones look best in shades of yellow, warm red, oranges, creams and brown.  Cool skin tones will glow in blues, rich greens, purples, pinks, fuchsias and deep red.  If you don’t know your skin tone, look at the color of the veins on the inside of your wrist.  If your veins appear blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone.  If your veins appear green, you have a warm skin tone.


What Accessories Will Complete Your Look?

Your choices don’t stop after you’ve found the perfect dress!  Prom accessories should be accents that enhance your look, not take away from your dress.  If your dress has sparkles or embellishments, choose jewelry of the same sheen.  If your dress is a solid color, you must decide whether gold or silver is right for your look.  Gold pairs perfectly with bold tones while silver complements pastels.  When you decide on your jewelry, remember less is more!
