Ever-Pretty Looks Back at Iconic Ball Gowns in Fashion History

Ball gowns have always been known as the most formal option amongst the fun and fashionable world of evening dresses. Women have been getting dolled up in their ball gowns for decades to prepare for only the most important black tie events.

The epitome of sophistication and elegance, ball gowns have a kind of grace that make every women that slips one on instantly feel like royalty. Ball gowns still continue to symbolize floor-length dresses with a full skirt. Full skirts and cinched waists were popular during the Victorian Era and became popular again after the Second World War in the early 1950s. Gowns became tighter at the waist and fuller in the skirt. We still see full skirts and floor length ball gowns on the red carpet, on runways, and during the most important occasions and celebrations of today.

Polish Picks for Prom

When it comes to prom, no detail will go unnoticed when it comes to your gown, accessories, and overall look for the big night. Even picking your polish color for prom is an important decision for the biggest event of the school year! Your manicure is an accent that should not be overlooked. With so many colors to choose from, Ever-Pretty is here to help with tips on how to dress your fingertips and match your manicure with your show-stopping prom gown. From neutral tones that will perfectly accessorize purple dresses to shimmery metallic polish that will add flair to printed dresses, we’ve got your polish needs covered for prom night. Pick your nail polish carefully and make sure your fingers look as stunning as you do.

Neutral polish is always a soft and pretty manicure that will perfectly accompany feminine pastels. If you’ve chosen a pastel gown like the Light Purple Sweetheart Chiffon Rhinestones Evening Dress, opt for a neutral shade of polish like a light pink or beige. Choose a tone with a little shimmer for a feminine match to your soft-toned dress. You can even choose to go for a sheer polish for an even more subtle manicure.

Dark polish colors like maroon, deep purple, and navy blue, are ideal accents for rich purple, blue and red gowns. If you’re prom dress is a similar tone to the Sexy V-neck Purple Diamante Cap Sleeve Wedding Dress, go for a manicure in a deep, almost-black shade.

If you’re going to be the lady in red on prom night, stick to the red tones for a color that almost matches your gown. Bright red gowns are perfectly accompanied with a deep maroon manicure. However, if you’re gown is a darker red, try a bright apple red that will offer a slight contrast. Gold accessories look perfect with a red polish color, and a dress like the Sexy V-neck Red Diamante Cap Sleeve Wedding Dress.

Make your manicure pop against a classic little black dress. With a simple yet elegant black gown like the Sexy Black Tie-Back Strapless Evening Dress, a vibrant polish color like bright pink or orange will be the ideal match for a stylish prom look. Black gowns also look great with a touch of glitter. Don’t be afraid to top off your manicure with a layer of gold or silver sparkle to your bright hues. Add even more vibrant tones to your black evening gown with a bold lipstick in red or magenta.
