How to Make your Boring Dress Look Stunning for Prom

If you are like me and you like to play safe when it comes to buying clothes, you might end up with piles of plain monochrome clothing in your closet. So when there are times that you might want to dress up, all the dresses you have are just darn too plain. Don’t worry, here are seven ways to glam up your favorite simple dress.

1. Bold eye makeup

Intense smoky eyes can help make every outfit look more glamourous. Trust me, just start with putting on a dark color eyeshadow and blend it well with a brush and your little black dress to look more party ready. Smokey eyes don’t always need to be black. If you are new to this makeup style, try bronze or grey. They are both amazing and not too bold for a smoky-eye newbie. A good way to do it is to put a black eyeliner on your waterline, add a dark color of your choice, and blend it out to create a sultry look.

2. Red lips

Just like smoky eyes, red lips immediately put a glamorous touch on any outfit. The trick is choosing the right shade of red for your skin tone. My favorite red lipsticks are all matte (such as Ruby Woo from MAC, Cruela from Nars, and Vintage Red from Revlon) because I think they are much easier to pull off, plus they have better staying power and won’t end up on my teeth.

However, if you’re feeling a little more daring and want to go all the way, a creamy texture will give you that very glamourous old Hollywood look. Just don’t forget to use the “stick your finger in your mouth and pull out” trick to avoid excess lipstick on your teeth.

3. Polished hair do

For a dress that is too plain and simple, try adding an alluring hairstyle. Ditch the messy bun or beachy waves for now and opt for big soft and glossy waves or a neat ballerina bun instead. Pay attention and tame any frizz or flyaway hair so that you look put together.

4. Bling clutch

If your dress is nothing exciting, an easy way to grab attention is by adding a colorful and sparkly clutch. Great choices are ones in colored sequins, metallic gold, or a gorgeous silver like those you can find when you shop at a prom dress retail store in Chicago.

5. Arm candy

This is a good time to pile up bracelets and bangles. If your dress is monochrome, adding colorful mix and match bangles will instantly make your outfit look more interesting. Don’t be afraid to stack up bracelets in different colors and sizes. Just enjoy your arm party!

6. Style it up with some shoes

Carrie Bradshaw once said “I will merchandise it up... style it up with some shoes.”  A great pair of shoes can turn any boring dress into one that will make people go “Wow”! In case you are looking for some hot shoes, Peaches Boutique has sexy prom dresses as well as a gorgeous collection of shoes and accessories to complete your look for the special night.                                                    

7. Statement necklaces/earrings

Arm candy isn’t your thing? Then try statement necklaces and earrings. This kind of jewelry will draw the eyes to your face and spice up any plain outfit immediately. You will get a lot of wears out of your classic Little Black Dress by adding different bold necklaces.
