Since middle school and probably earlier, we wait for that one moment where we can look like the princesses we always felt we were - before our weddings come our prom! Prom season is in full effect. Class of 2017 is definitely leaving their mark, and I would say that the years after are going to have a challenge on their hands trying to top them. I mean, have you seen how they're slaying?
There’s so much to do to make this day special. You need the perfect dress, heels, makeup on fleek and your inches laid. All while making sure your date is looking just as glamorous as you. However, despite the normal agenda, you don't necessarily need a prom partner. There are many teens going with a group of friends or even arriving by their lonesome and they're having just as much fun! So, don't feel pressured to follow the wave - you'll be just fine either way.
For those of you who can't be without your significant other or bestie on this night, not to worry! You may have the best experience of all: Promposal! Every year, couples go viral for their extreme prom proposals in front of random strangers at a mall or their peers at school helping them out. One of my favorites that I've seen in history is this young man...well..just take a look!
That's right, red bottoms as a prom gift! For those of you who don't know, red bottoms are a very popular (and rather expensive) type of high heels. I'm sure this girl would've been thrilled to go with him either way, but this really puts the icing on the cake and it's definitely a moment to remember. What's a gift better than the perfect pair of heels?
For some, dresses are overrated. Why wear a long, flowy gown when you can wear a glittery, glamorous jumpsuit instead! Can't picture it? Well, check this out!
After being inspired by Kylie Jenner’s dress at the 2016 Met Gala, teenager Faith Thigpen went viral after wearing this jumpsuit designed by popular fashion designer Angel Brinks. She’s been posted by media outlets such as Teen Vogue, Seventeen Magazine and Cosmopolitan Magazine. This $1,995 design has definitely made an impact. You go, girl!
As if the glossy dresses weren’t enough, it seems as though a simple limo wasn’t either. They're soo early 2000’s! The cool kids are pulling up in Lamborghini's, BMW’s, you name it!
Imagine walking into the venue and seeing this arrive: a crisp Lamborghini and a pink haired beauty. Seems like something out of a fairy tale! What's even better is the color coordination - the rose gold vibe and pink hair is definitely a look. By the looks of it, I would say it's time to start saving up now if I plan to look this Hollywood.
All of this prom talk just makes me so much more excited for mine. On top of that, every year my expectations are exceeded. An experience of a lifetime, one that many don't get to experience at all! So, make sure you do what you think looks best. It's your time to shine!
