Your high school years are all about self-expression and making memories that will last a lifetime, and nothing touches upon both quite like prom season. It’s the perfect time to glam out with your friends, celebrate your individuality, and rock the perfect dress for your personality and style.
When it comes to picking out a prom dress, you want to go all-in with a look that really shows off who you are. If you’re looking for inspiration, try seeking out your favorite red carpet moments, celebrity and influencer social accounts, and high fashion editorials. Does a particular silhouette stick out to you or is it more about the color? Pulling these ideas will help you get a good visual of what look is manifesting in your mind. Once you have your dress inspo, pull beauty looks (don’t forget the nail art!) and anything else that helps bring your vibe to life — lyrics, quotes, and illustrations are all fair game. Piece everything together on a mood board so you can see the big picture and stay true to your personal flair.
