How To Make Your Prom Dress Stand Out From Everybody Else's

Showing up to school in the same outfit as someone else is social suicide but showing up to prom in the same outfit is much worse. To make sure that you don't show up to the prom wearing a dress that looks exactly like another girl's outfit, there are a few different things that you can do. But what? From having a custom gown made to having an existing dress altered, this article will list a few things that you can have done. Ready to learn more? If so, then read on.  

Have a Custom Gown Made

If you are really worried that someone will show up in the same dress as you, then it's time to go custom. Hire a dressmaker to design and make a custom gown just for you. The fun thing about this process is that you can typically work directly with them to make something that exemplifies you and your personality perfectly. Plus, you can always draw inspiration from the runway which will help to make your dress look super designer and unique. 

Do Two Pieces

If you don't want to tog the custom route but you are still nervous about not looking unique, then consider getting a two-piece gown. Two pieces are popular right now and they are easy to make your own. For instance, you can get a long formal skirt from one store and then pair it with something really unique from another store; this will help create a custom look and feel but without a hefty price tag. 

Alter a Dress

Another thing that you can do is take an off-the-rack gown and have it altered and changed a little bit. For instance, you can take it to a seamstress and have them alter the hemline so that it's an A-line cut, or you can have them change the neckline of the dress. By making these small changes, you can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your prom gown. 

The fun thing about going to prom is showing off your personal style. In addition to having the perfect gown, don't forget to have your hair done, get new jewelry, and wear some heels that will tie everything together as seamlessly as possible. 

To make sure that you show up to prom looking and feeling good, make sure that you are wearing the dress of your dreams. To learn more about custom gowns and dresses, reach out to a seamstress near you today.
