Get Set For Prom With Dresses, Shoes, And More

Prom night may be a distance memory for many of us filled with oddles of tulle, piled-on sparkle and enough hairspray for your head to be labeled a firehazard. But for those of us who finally get to live out their teenage dream at prom night this year, we are here to offer a little guidance. Whether your prom is a black tie affair or a more modest event, we have laid out the options that wont have you looking back thinking why you choose a dress that looked more like a cupcake. After all, you only get a few chances to look that over-the-top gorgeous (preferably in a dress that can fit through a standard doorway). Click though our picks for dresses, shoes, and accessories to start planning your special night.
