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.

Look to the Stars for Prom Inspiration

Prom seems like it’s a day away, and the pressure is on to pick a dress that will get you noticed. With so many party dresses to choose from, how can you make up your mind on which gown is right from you? At Ever-Pretty, we understand the importance of picking a memorable prom gown. We also know that it’s hard to know where to start when there are so many pretty cocktail dresses to choose from. For the biggest night of the year, why don’t you sit back, and look to some of Hollywood’s hottest stars for evening style inspiration. The red carpet’s best-dressed are decked out head-to-toe in the most fashionable and glamorous frocks of today. Look to your fashion icons like Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence and Ariana Grande for prom inspiration and choose a celebrity inspired dress amongst Ever-Pretty’s pretty cocktail dresses that will definitely make heads turn.

Channel the Fifties like Ariana Grande- At the Grammy Awards this year, the adorable and fashionable Ariana Grande opted for a retro look with an A-line flared floral number that was absolutely stunning.  The cinched waist and exaggerated flared skirt looked as though the stylish star belonged in the fifties.  Achieve Ariana’s retro look with a knee-length flared gown like the Strapless Purple Rhinestones Organza Floral Printed Club Dress. You could wear your hair half-up like Ariana, or opt for side swept curls to continue the retro look. The star chose to wear close toe beige champagne pumps that were a perfect match with her dress, for prom you could chose a platform peep-toe pump or evening sandals as well.

Choose a Two-Toned Dress like Taylor- The gorgeous Taylor Swift adorned the Golden Globes red carpet with a two-toned fuchsia and black floor-length gown that was definitely a stunner. Take a note from Taylor and don’t arrive in just one color! Choose the V-neck Black Pink High Stretch Flower Split Evening Dress to mirror the exact colors Taylor chose for one of the biggest events of the year. Add bold red lips like Ms. Swift for an even more romantic red-carpet look.

Be the Lady in Red like Jennifer- Jennifer Lawrence was the talk of the Academy Award’s red carpet with her jaw-dropping red strapless gown. The Oscar nominee decided to go for a simple look with understated jewels and a simple evening bag. Achieve Jennifer’s elegant and timeless look for prom by choosing a gorgeous red gown like the Strapless Diamante Red Ruffles Split Empire Line Evening Dress.

Prom-Worthy Accessories Under $25

When it comes to prom, accessorizing can be just as important as the dress you choose. At Ever-Pretty, we understand the importance of embellishing your gown with the right accessories. The addition of a sophisticated evening shawl or the perfect evening bag can take your look to the next level and make sure you make heads turn as you walk into the biggest event of the year. Although prom is the most exciting night of the year, preparing for the big event can also cost a pretty penny. Accessories fit for prom don’t necessarily have to break the bank. You can stay within your budget and look luxurious with Ever-Pretty’s collection of glamorous evening bags and evening shawls. Choose from evening bags that will add the perfect amount of shimmer or pattern to your look, making sure you stand out as you walk into the big dance.  Don’t let accessories exceed your prom budget. With Ever-Pretty’s gorgeous accessories, you will look red carpet ready without the red carpet prices.

An evening shawl is the perfect way to achieve an extremely glamorous look for prom night. Ever-Pretty’s collection of evening shawls under twenty five dollars will help you stay within your budget as you choose an accessory that will only add to your fashionable look for the dance. When it comes to looking for the perfect match for dresses that feature a lot of detail or prints, neutral or solid colored shawls are the best choice. A bold gown like the New Strapless Rhinestones Animal Printed Evening Dress needs a simple black evening shawl as an accent.  The Gorgeous Black Chiffon Evening Shawls Scarves are the ideal choice for a vibrant dress. If you have chosen a classic black gown like the A-line One Shoulder Black Ruffles Padded Long Evening Dress, opt for a shawl that adds a fun pattern to your prom attire. Try a romantic floral print like the White New Chiffon Evening Party Shawls Scarves.

Evening bags are another sophisticated way to dress up your outfit without going over your budget. Although they are affordable, Ever-Pretty’s collection of evening bags are nothing short of luxurious. A little sparkle can go a long way. Choosing an evening bag with rhinestones can bring in even more glamour to your stylish prom look. Choose a gorgeous bag like the Rhinestones Flower-like Blue Satin Clasp Ruffles Party Clutch Evening Bag for a versatile pick you can wear with nearly any gown. If you’ve chosen a neutral color for your prom dress, adding a pop of color with your evening bag is a stylish way to spice up your look for the night. The Rhinestones Hand Shoulder Hot Pink Wedding Evening Bag will definitely make your neutral dress pop.

Pretty pastels are springs hottest trend! Stay true to your sweet self and be a total trendsetter in these light hues!

Swap Sweet Ponytails for Sultry Summer Waves- Turn your pastel look up a notch by wearing your hair in loose and sexy summer waves. Add an exotic and wild touch to a sweet pastel tone with effortless and voluminous hair. Your summer waves will add flair to a dress like the Adorable V-neck Short Sleeve Bow Women’s Sheath Dress in pink.

Make a Statement with Statement Jewelry- A little embellishment can go a long way. Add a statement necklace in gold or silver to a sweet pastel dress for a metallic touch that will definitely give you a more adult look. Add an edge to a dress like the Strapless Bow Ruffles Empire Waist Chiffon Padded Party Dress in a soft blue with a metallic statement necklace.

Add Some Height With Stilettos- There’s nothing more adult than a sexy pair of stilettos. Whether you opt for your favorite pair of sandals or nude stiletto pumps, a high heel will dress up your pastel picks and definitely add a dash of maturity to your overall look.

Go for a Bold Lip Color and Smoky Eyes- Sultry red lips or a flirty deep fuchsia lip color offer a stylish and bold contrast to a pastel pink or purple dress. Match your bold lip color with a mysterious brown smoky eye. Choose brown instead of black to offer a contrast that is subtler and less harsh than a black smoky eye.

Wedding Etiquette

After the proposal, brides-to-be are often overwhelmed with endless questions about wedding planning. Unfortunately, a guidebook to wedding etiquette doesn’t come along with the engagement ring. However, worry no more because Ever-Pretty is here to answer your questions. Not only does Ever-Pretty have a wide collection of wedding guest dresses and casual wedding dresses, we are also here to hold your hand during this exciting and often confusing time! Many times the blushing-brides-to-be have many questions relating to the bridal party. Questions ranging from the size of a bridal party to the host of the many events leading to the wedding, we’re here to help answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the bridal party.

How many bridesmaids can I have?

Like many things relating to weddings, you can make all of your decisions based on the unique taste and style of you and your husband-to-be. Some brides opt to not have any bridesmaids altogether, and others may have up to ten girls stand beside them. However, we suggest you keep in mind that the more bridesmaids you have, the more people you’ll have to coordinate and keep in touch with during a time that can already be stressful. Typically the number of bridesmaids tends to range between three and six.

Can I have more than one flower girl?

If you have small children in your families that are very important to you as a couple, you can very well have more than one flower girl. We would suggest coordinating your flower girl outfits so that there is unity and a cohesive feel as the girls walk down the aisle. Remember that if your flower girls are younger than age four, they may be too young to follow directions during the ceremony.

How can I have my bridesmaid dresses differ from one another without having them clash?

Many brides choose to have their bridesmaids wear dresses that are different from one another. If you still want to keep an overall connected theme within your bridal party, choose bridesmaid dresses in the same tone but with different silhouettes or necklines. For example one of your bridesmaids can wear the Light Purple Flowers One Shoulder Chiffon Padded Evening Dress while another wears a strapless dress in the same color like the Sexy Light Purple Long Evening Party Bridesmaid Dress.

Do I have to give my bridesmaids a gift?

It’s always nice to thank your bridal party for their commitment and willingness to be a part of your special day. Although individual gifts like memorable jewelry or personalized t-shirts for the day are nice keepsakes, you can also choose to have a special brunch or luncheon for the important ladies in your life. This will also give the bridesmaids a chance to connect and bond before the big day.

Nothing says summer like long days that turn into warm nights. Days at the beach turn into a night out on the town for hours of carefree fun we look forward to all year.

Take this dress from sunny strolls on the beach to fun nights out with our tips and tricks!

Keep our tips for taking summer dresses from boardwalk cool to evening chic in mind as everyone’s favorite season quickly approaches. With accessories like a leather or denim jacket, a favorite pair of heels, or a set of sparkly bangles, you can take casual summer dresses from day to night in no time. Choose from printed dresses like the perfect floral piece that will be ready to take on the excitement and adventure of summer.

When we think summer, floral dresses just seem to magically appear in our minds. The floral dress seems to be the symbol of summer that’s perfect for almost any occasion. Depending on how you style your floral frocks, you can shift your look from barbecues on the beach and strolls on the boardwalk to summer soirees and bonfires. Ever-Pretty’s Spaghetti Straps Floral Printed Falbala Short Cocktail Dress is a fashionable choice that can be dressed down or up! If you’re looking for a solid color that still makes a statement, a dress like the Ever-Pretty Chic White Lace Cocktail Dress is a great choice! How can you convert pieces like these to accompany you as the sun goes down? Here are a few tips we think might help!

Keep a Stylish Jacket on Hand: A little leather can go a long way. Keep a trendy leather jacket on hand that will add some edge to your flirty look when nighttime approaches. The contrast is ideal for summer parties or nights out on the town. If leather isn’t really your thing, denim will also do the trick. This addition will spice up your look and keep you warm, as the night gets a little chillier.

  • Bring on the Bangles: A set of your favorite gold bangles or statement earrings will add to your daytime look more than you think! Just a little bit of bling will set the mood for a lighthearted evening of fun.
  • Make the Shift to a Bold Lip: Throw some fuchsia or deep red lipstick in your purse to shift from your light pink lipstick from throughout the day. Nothing says nighttime as perfectly as a deep and bold lip color. Add quick winged eyeliner to take it a step further.
  • Step up Your Shoe Game: You’ve enjoyed the day in your sandals or flip-flops and now it’s time to turn it up a notch. Swap your sandals for wedges or peep toe pumps to add some pep to your step for a night out.
  • Let Your Hair Down: Embrace the natural beach waves and give that ponytail or bun a rest! Having your hair in loose romantic waves with a dark lip is an ideal look for exciting summer nights.
