Short Or Long Prom Dresses – What To Wear?

Prom is one of the most eventful days in a girl’s life. Hence, it is not a wonder why every girl wishes to be the center of the attraction during the event by wearing beautiful prom dresses. Some even begin their search for the perfect prom gown even months prior to the prom while some may be confused whether to wear a sassy short prom or a traditional long prom. Well, to take a decision whether to wear long or short gown, it is first important to determine your body shape. In other words, since not all girls are identical and it is not necessary that long or short gown should suit all girls alike, it is important to take into consideration some factors to decide whether to wear long or short prom dress for the prom.

Short prom attire is an elegant wear that do not touch the ankles. It enables you to flaunt your legs as well as prom shoes, in addition to allowing you to dance easily. This type of prom dress is usually chosen by girls with shorter height, as it provides the illusion of added heights. If you opt for short prom dresses, you have mostly three options to choose from such as miniskirt, tea length, and knee length prom dresses. Miniskirt dresses will be just above the knee, and tea length will reach mid calf, which in turn would conceal your thighs and knees. Knee length attires will extend to the knees and will cover your hips.

As mentioned earlier, your decision on wearing long or short prom depends on a number of factors such as your body figure and personal preferences. For example, if you have a figure that takes after athletic shape with killer muscular legs as well as awesome shoulders, then you would be undoubtedly pretty in short prom dresses with spaghetti straps. Likewise, for girls with hour-glass figure, halter-style short dresses will be more suitable. Further, pear-shaped girls will look more elegant in baby doll or A-line short dresses, which will be fit at the top and flowing below the waist line.

If you want to be more formal for your prom, no other choices would be better than wearing a long gown elaborated with exceptional designs. As in the case of short dresses, you can really look elegant in long dresses provided if it is chosen according to your body figures. If you have average to tall body figure, then consider putting on a ball gown. A bouffant gown will be more suitable for girls with apple and pear shaped body. On the other hand, if you are one with tall, thin figure and beautiful calves, then you will be more graceful in a tea-length gown.

Once you have chosen the most appropriate short or long dress for your prom, select beautiful accessories and prom shoes to complement your dress. Equally important is to try a hair style that goes with your prom dress and accessories.
