I've been getting a lot of questions about prom outfit ideas lately.. From my readers, and even my juniors and close friends at school because our school's prom is just 3 weeks away..
In Tegal (the city where I live) doesn't have much clothing stores (no zara,topshop, etc), so we usually buy our clothes online. Here are some of my dress and accessories picks from Odioli . It's a one stop online shopping site that carries so maaany local brands in Indonesia.
I honestly have always been a fan of bold colors like electric blue, emerald, maroon, etc. It's not too bright , not too dark, but it makes us look more 'charismatic'. And I think those colors are perfect for prom dresses.
My school's prom will be held at the school's hall, so long princess-y dresses with lots of beads don't really match. These first two dresses that I pick are:
1. Misty Fox Serenada Dress via Odioli. Yeap. Electric Blue a.k.a Royal Blue. This color will definitely emphasize your skin's tone whether you're white or tanned. Just add a gorgeous necklace and wear a good pair of pumps (black or nude or red are my recommendations)!
2. Auntie Marie Coater via Odioli. I like this dress especially because of the sequins collar that gives a touch of 'glam' for this simple LBD.
Black and white are the most safe color options. My tips is, when you wear a b/w dress, wear necklace / earrings so that your look won't be too plain for this special occassion.
For more additions, here are my picks from Asos & Nasty Gal. International shipping may take 3-4 weeks to deliver to Indonesia except you choose the express delivery which is quite expensive, so if it's not possible to get these dresses, you may take these picks as inspirations for you!
The hairbun can also be your inspiration if you're bored with curled / blowed hair.
I totally fall in love with this dress. I'm not really a fan of tangerine or orange, since it's quite similar to my nearly tanned skin. But the dress' cutting and style is just to die for ! And Like I've said before, earrings / necklace is a perfect option to optimize this kind of plain dress!
This dress is perfect for a sweet or vintage themed prom. Pointed heels in bright color can steal the attendees' eyes!
