STYLING

MEET YOUR NEW PROM GOALS

By Spencer Cain, April 12, 2018

So it's officially that time of year: the Oscars of high school, the climax of every teen movie and a night that will live forever thanks to Instagram. Yep, prom! In order to make sure your look goes down as the freshest in the room, we've assembled 'fits for every scenario. Whether you're going for OTT '80s or full finesse, look no further... 
Prom

The key to twirling on your haters (and everyone else in school)? An XXL amount of sequins, obviously. Kemi Olukanni owns the night by maxing out on our favorite trends, namely a fanny pack and oh-so-small sunnies. 

 

ASOS RED CARPET iridescent sequin midi dress, $190
ASOS DESIGN small cat eye fashion glasses, $23
ASOS DESIGN mix quilted fanny pack, $29

Prom

Renting a pricey tux you'll wear once and stress about spilling on is so not the move. Go bold or go home — like Mars, whose floral suit moment can double as sleek separates whenever you want. Yep.

 

ASOS EDITION skinny blazer in floral jacquard, $135
ASOS DESIGN super longline grandad shirt in black, $40
ASOS DESIGN vegan sneakers in pink, $32

Prom

Listen, it's all in the accessories — and with chinoiserie prints trending, make a big bag statement like Joy Taira. An update on the classic prom dress, an embellished mini proves that classics never go out of style.

Essentiel Antwerp Pastis heeled shoes with pearls, $213.50
ASOS DESIGN chinoiserie zip-around box clutch, $26 (similar style)
ASOS DESIGN statement hand earrings, $9.50


Prom

Don't let anyone tell you that a blazer is a pre-req to nailing your BNO style. Musician Quiet Luke keeps it fully business on the bottom in a pair of tailored slacks — but then goes full festival in serious sequins up top. It's all about contrast.

So you've got the dress covered (in ruffles, of course) and even a kimono to bring the vibes. But as Jessica Wu shows us, don't doubt the power of sleek glasses and a bold lip.
