Trend, Fashion and Style! Inspiration for Prom Season 2014

Prom season and homecoming 2014 is approaching fast and if you haven’t started already it’s time to find that perfect dress or outfit that will ensure you look your very best on this special night. Prom is one of the few times when you really can dress up and look gorgeous. Just as important as choosing the dress is the jewelry and accessories you wear to finish off your Red Carpet Look. It can make or break your stunning look!

Ideally the jewelry and accessories should be picked out after you have decided on what type of dress you are going to wear. The key to picking out the perfect jewelry pieces is to make sure that the jewelry you choose works together with the dress. It should complement the dress not distract from it!

2014 Prom Season Fashion contains classic elements as well as new embellishments, colors and fabric. In fabric, chiffon and jersey are popular. You can create the look of see through material without showing skin with the illusion fabrics. Lace in different colors and lace over various fabrics is also seen on a lot of the dresses this year. According to a lot of fashion experts, the biggest colors this season are coral, soft pink, purple and various shades of green and blue, like mint, turquoise and sapphire. But not to forget the all-time classic colors black, red and off white that still are very much in style.

In jewelry oversized jewelry is in for this season, heavy beading, big crystals and rhinestones are a few examples. Silver is taking a backseat to gold this season when it comes to accessories. Prom jewelry can take almost any form and doesn’t have to be expensive. There are a lot of different options to choose from, anything from necklaces and earrings to gorgeous dressy items like tiaras and other hair jewelry. Even brooches are hot this season.

How to match your jewelry with your dress

If your dress is lacy and delicate you should reflect that with the jewelry you choose. Long earrings, jewelry with sparkles or even vintage style pieces will look great with classic styled prom dresses. If your dress is more dramatic, you’ll need more bold jewelry to complement it. If you pick something too small it will get lost in the ensemble. Be careful though so you don’t turn a dramatic look to a gaudy look! Large pearl or glass beads would work great to finish your stunning look. If you dress is simple in design, consider a choker necklace or layered longer necklace to bring some glam to the look.

For most styles of prom dresses it is pretty easy to find the right jewelry to match. One that is a bit tricky is the one shoulder dress. One shoulder dresses are very popular for prom and it can be a challenge to find the perfect jewelry for that style of dress. Here are a few tips to pull off that perfect one shoulder look.

Chokers works well, they fit close to the neck and don’t interfere with a slanting neckline. “Y” necklaces with a dangling middle piece are also good choice, this allows you to wear a delicate necklace style without it getting lost in the fabric of your dress. Long necklaces that you can loop, layer or tie in a knot also works with a one shoulder dress, if it hangs low enough to show. The really long necklaces work great with one shoulder dresses with a low back since part of the necklace can lay on the bare back. Arm cuffs, bracelets and earrings are also good choices with this style.

Be careful with the jewelry you choose so you don’t pick materials that can snag and draw threads on a delicate fabric on your dress.

Last but not least, make sure that you choose a dress and jewelry that will make you feel comfortable! You don’t want the dress to be too tight so it makes it uncomfortable when you sit down to eat or move around. Very heavy jewelry, especially earrings can get very uncomfortable after a long period of wearing them.  You want to look fabulous but you also want to enjoy your special night!
