Quick & Easy Tips To Accessorizing For Long Prom Dresses

Accessorizing is probably one of the most difficult aspects of working out your prom look! There are so many gorgeous options available, and you want to make sure they don’t overpower your dress or even you!

Although there are no real set rules to what you can and cannot wear with a long prom dress, there are of course little things you can keep in mind to make sure you look your best.

Opposites Attract

One of the biggest mistakes you will see people make when it comes to accessorizing is overdoing it. The number one way this happens is when people try to match everything!

This doesn’t work for a couple of reasons: firstly, unless you have your shoes and bag custom made from the same fabric as your prom dress, it is unlikely you will be able to match the tones and colors perfectly. Even then, matching colors is a bit out-dated, and more suited to weddings rather than prom.

The second way that matching doesn’t work is when trying to match embellishments such as beading or sequins. If you have a long prom dress that is completely beaded or sequined, having shoes, earrings and a bag with embellishments completely overdoes the look and detracts from your beautiful dress.

Try and look for accessories that compliment your dress. For example, if you have a red velvet long prom dress, accessorize with a brushed gold clutch and strappy heels – these will compliment your look, giving you a sophisticated and sultry edge.

Jewelry: Less Is More

One or two pieces of statement jewelry look amazing with a long prom dress – whether the gown is simple or not. Trying to wear long earrings with multiple rings, bracelets, and a necklace can overdo your look, leaving the focus more on the accessories than the dress. This is the last thing you’d want as you’ve probably spent a lot of time and money to find the perfect gown!

If you have a stunning statement necklace and earring set like this one from JJ’s House, skip the bracelet and rings – let them shine along with your dress. The added bonus is you don’t have to spend more time and money getting things you really don’t need!

Are You The Fairest Of Them All?

When trying out accessories for your long prom dress, the mirror is truly going to be your best friend. This is because it’s important to make sure your accessories don’t create an imbalance in your look.

For example, if you have a one-shoulder prom dress with beading in the bodice area, you will want to avoid heavy jewelry like big earrings or necklaces around your face, but you need to see how a thick bracelet will look instead with your clutch.

At the end of the day, your prom look is about making you happy, and testing out different ideas in front of the mirror is going to be the best way for you to achieve that.

Say I Do with Blue Steel Evermore and Eternity Wedding Band

 disclosure policy

When hubby and I got married, we haven’t got the chance to buy our wedding band instead we used our paired ring (or as they called lover’s ring) and the ring given to me by my grand mother  into a new ring according to the design we like but unfortunately, hubby lost his ring when we had a car accident four years ago and since then, we haven’t found the right ring to replace them.

That’s why when I was given by Blue Steel an opportunity to review one of their collection, I immediately told hubby that I saw a ring that will replace the one we lost.

Blue Steel offers a wide collection of  jewelries from Stainless Steel, Stainless silver, titanium , tungsten and colored jewelries.  All the designs are really unique and beautiful and i spent hours browsing their site because I have so many favorites that my mind is really confused on what I shall choose.  Here are some of my favorites ;

Secret Love – $52.49

Pink Prism – $24.99

 

 

But of course, I have to settle with only one and the Eternity and Evermore Wedding set caught our attention.

Just like in the picture,  seeing it in actual is like “really wow”.  The rings look elegant and nicely done and the most important fact is that it’s made from surgical stainless steel just like the one, doctors used when having a surgery which means it’s built to last.  The band size may look big but it’s nice because it gives a little distinction while wearing them on your finger. Since, i’m allergic to gold and ordinary silver is easy to stain, this ring is indeed a perfect piece for me.
