I had a request to do a feature on prom fashion. I had never done a prom post before and this sure left me feeling nostalgic. My own prom dress was by Jovani and it was a canary yellow. I loved it and felt like a princess that day.

I remembered wanting soft, voluminous curls for my prom. Instead I was stuck with frizzy, tight curls. But I digress. I have put together some prom looks that will sure to dazzle everyone in your senior class.

Emerald green is the color of the year for 2013 so why not choose it as the color for your prom dress. I love Grecian-inspired gowns and this one is gorgeous. This color is universally flattering and it's elegant and flowy with just the right amount of glam. I personally think it would look much better with an up-do instead of wearing the hair down.
Remember that movie "10 Things I Hate About You" where Bianca Strafford had that ultra-cool 2 piece tutu and top? I thought that was one of the greatest prom looks ever. This Sherri Hill dress is a more modern take with a shorter skirt and a fresh coral color. Coral is a big color this year. This would look best with simple delicate sandals.

This is one from the 2013 Jovani Prom Collection which features a lot of sheer detailing this year. This delicate gold color is very pretty and the sheer detailing is very tasteful and elegant. I think it's important to not show too much skin and be outrageously sexy. you'll just end up regretting it as you cringe at the photos years later.
