Planning for prom night? We’ll let you in on a secret. Our big sister brand Monsoon have launched a brand new prom dress collection (major heart-eyes emoji alert), and we’ve styled them with a few party-perfect extras to inspire your knock-out look for the big night. Pinterest boards at the ready!
All Black Everything
Want to wear black to prom? Go for a must-have maxi with sheer lace cut-outs for a hit of grunge-girl glam, and style it with all-black extras instead of the usual silver or gold. Make it your own with a black choker, sleek clutch and a statement ring, adding extra edge to the whole get-up with a small but tough ear cuff.
If minimalism is more your vibe, then a nude-hued slip (so SS17) has your name written all over it. Nod to the ‘90s with a barely-there choker and rings in luxe gold or – if you’re treating your dress more like a blank canvas – a pair of out-there drop earrings made from a multitude of delicate chains.
How to make a classic prom style feel seriously now? Easy – go backless. Choose a floor-length navy number and adjust the focus with an embellished gold bag to carry in hand or wear over your shoulder (concealable strap = win) when the night calls for a selfie sesh with your BFFs.
Going for full-on prom princess? Pick out a pastel pink dress (double points if it has pleats) and wear it with a cute clutch, decked out with spotlight-stealing jewels in tonal colours. One word: dreamy.
For something a little more now, style out a fancy floor-grazer with a sparkly choker in the very same shade. They’re the new way to do statement jewels – and we guarantee you’ll be wearing them for all the other summer parties you’ve got coming up.
