What Color Should I Wear To Prom 2023?

What Color Should I Wear To Prom 2023?

It’s never too early to start thinking about one of the most special events of the year: prom! Even though we’re still in full-on fall mode, it’s fun to plan ahead and start envisioning your look for the big night. 

One of the most important considerations is what color you’ll rock. With so many choices at your fingertips, it can be hard to know where to start. Today, we’re breaking it all down to help you choose a prom dress that you adore. 

Think About Your Skin Tone

All of us have an undertone to our skin. Some are cool and others are warm. When you know yours, it’s easier to shop for prom dresses that highlight your complexion. 

One of the best ways to find your skin tone is to look at the color of your veins in natural light. If they look blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone. If they look green or green/blue, you have a warm skin tone. 

Cool-toned girls look great in bold colors, such as pink, purple, teal, or blue. If you have a warm skin tone, shop for earthier shades in rich tones of gold, green, brown, or bronze. These hues will accentuate your best features and help you shine. 

Consider the Theme

Most schools design their prom around a certain theme, such as Starry Night or Under the Sea. It can be fun to use this theme to inspire your dress choice, but you don’t usually have to match it. 

If you want to go all-in, then embrace the theme and look for prom dresses that complement it. Or, you can stand out from the crowd and wear a dress that tastefully contrasts it. Either way, keep the theme in mind as you choose your color, and you’ll be sure to look picture-perfect. 

Embrace the Trends

If you’re stuck on which colors to wear, take a cue from the trend book! This year, certain prom dress colors are becoming especially popular. This includes various shades of blue, such as soft periwinkle and bold peacock, as well as bright colors such as neon pink, neon green, and neon orange. 

While those brighter colors might seem intimidating, go ahead and give them a try! You’ll find that they’re flattering and easy to pull off, especially with the right accessories. 

Of course, while it’s helpful to browse the trends and keep current fashions in mind as you shop, remember that you’re the best guru when it comes to your own personal style. 

You know what you feel the most comfortable in, and which pieces bring out your beautiful inner confidence. If you fall in love with a dress that happens to be in a different shade than these, slip it on and show off your true spirit. 

Try a LBD

Want to save the brighter prom dresses for another occasion and rock a black dress at prom? You can absolutely do so!

In fact, there are many reasons why this is a smart move. For one, a little black dress is eternally classic, chic, and on-trend. It’s a formalwear favorite that flatters all body types and skin tones, bringing out your best features, especially a bold red lip!

It’s also versatile. You’ll keep a stunning black prom dress in your closet and find reasons to wear it long after the last song ends and the dance floor clears.

Check With Your Date

Are you planning to attend Prom 2023 with a date or a group of friends? If so, consider checking with them before you make your final dress color selection.
If the group wants to coordinate, you can choose ensembles in all the same colors or opt for shades that complement one another. This helps your photographs turn out beautifully and ensures no one clashes!

Once you’ve decided on your prom dress color, let the others in your group know. If everyone communicates openly about their choices, you can stay on the same page and arrive together in style
