Prom Dresses

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Miu Miu prom dressEven if you don’t have a prom to go to (and most of us probably don’t), that doesn’t mean you can’t buy the dress. Prom dresses are everywhere, from high street to designer, and they’re great to slip on for a night out. Uncomplicated but effective, these dresses transform you into a prom queen in with one easy zip.

This Miu Miu Bustier prom dress has everything – the perfect strapless shape, a full skirt and this seasons hottest detail – a big bow. In classic black this dress can be accessorised with the perfect partner of every black dress, diamonds. Slip on some black tights if it’s a bit chilly, and some killer heels. Or, if you want to be cutting edge and on trend, invest in some peep-toe ankle boots.

With a price tag of £1,085, this is definitely the upper end of the scale, but you’re guaranteed a well-made, built to last garment that will fit you like a glove. Available at Net-a-Porter.

It seems purples and reds are definitely the way to go and it wont be long before high street stores are stocking up on some berry beauties. Get ahead of the trend with these gorgeous Christian Louboutin Altadama astrakhan platforms, yum I hear you screaming!

The peep-toe super shoes are sure to get you a few compliments, with a 5 inch wooden heel, 1 inch platform and signature red sole and patent toe design. They’ll set you back £520 but not bad for a pair of Louboutin’s.

Partner with a berry tote such as this fabulous Mulberry Snakeskin oversized shoulder bag, at £1,250 it’s not a bargain but it is beautiful. Layer your berry tones but don’t overdo it or you might end up looking too much like a berry!

The Culotte Dress

Topshop Culotte DressOn one of my regular trips to Topshop the other week I found what looked like the cutest floral dress in pink, proceeding to the changing rooms I was more than surprised to see it had shorts instead of a skirt bottom.

Since the days of Brownies I have not worn a pair of culottes but after trying and buying these I’m hooked. Comfortable and stylish, the culotte dress makes a great summer purchase as not only is it cool but its flattering too. Plus it’s very easy to accesorize with. For the best outfit match with gladiator sandals and a tote.
