Last Minute: Prom Guide

Most of you high school students probably have one thing in mind lately and that is prom. I know that while some already have their dress and limo ready, some still have to find that one perfect dress. I've seen many prom guides on blog and such but one thing bugged me- they all focus on what styles are in this season. I know that is what fashion is all about but I wanted to just say this piece of advice. When it comes down to picking the dress and shoes go with comfort and you. Don't just pick the 4 inch heels and strapless dress you saw on that magazine spread because at prom you'll be dancing and pulling up your dress every second will not be fun. Plus while that dress may be 'in' this year those pictures you take will last forever so go with what you think represents you best.
Ok enough preaching now onto the fashion. Here are some last minute ideas that won't break the bank. Most of the dresses can even be worn after prom has passed!
Flirty & Classic
To create a flirty classic look, look for soft colors like light pinks, ivory, and neutrals. Pretty detailing like beading, lace and flowers make it a super pretty look! This dress can be found here for $34.80. 
This is a longer alternative just as chic! It can be found here for just $158.00.

LBD: Little (or long) Black Dress

This dress is super cute and since it's black it can be accessorized any way your hearts desire. Check out this dress here for $52.99.
This dress is beautiful on it's own and would only need a bit of jewelry. The dress definitely has a more sexy feel to it with the baring back. Find it here for $308.00.

Jewel Tones
 This pretty red dress is so beautiful and classic on it's own and will surely get you noticed! It reminds me of that memorable dress Jennifer Lawrence wore to this years' Oscars. Find it here for $69.00.
This rich beautiful dress is in sapphire which is my birthstone. Look for very rich colors but stay away from colors that look more neon than a deep color. This dress can be found here for $103.00.

This floral mini steps it up for prom night with the pretty pleating on the skirt. It's only $81.00 here.
This long version of the floral print has a bohemian with a garden twist vibe. The soft colors are youthful and not granny looking. Find this dress here for $73.00.

I hope this helped you just in time. I know for some people prom is this weekend, so I'm sorry if I posted this too late to help you out. If you guys use this guide I put together please send in your prom night pics to messyhairprettydress@yahoo.com to share with our readers.
