Be Glam or be Glum!

It’s that time of the year where all you lovely ladies should already be searching for the perfect prom/formal dress in celebration of completing high school. In honor of that, I thought I’d help a sister out and do most of the research for you and look for the best dress so you can stand out from the rest. Although this is labeled as “modest formal wear” please don’t be disheartened if you’re not a hijabi. I hope you can still find some inspiration from today’s post. All you have to do is eliminate the excess garments.

To me, Prom night is all about long lengthy dresses with gorgeous embellishments and textures. Dresses that really pop and stand out in the crowd! The majority of dresses that I found are from Asos; this isn’t a sponsored post. Asos is truly the best shopping experience to find your perfect outfit, all from the one platform. I did however, try to find accessories and other details from other retailers too.

Red Tiered Pleated Maxi Dress


Stand out in this gorgeous high neck, lace detail, tiered pleated skirt with a tie-waist closure. It has a keyhole back and zip-back fastening and can be worn with a nude long sleeve crop top for coverage. Pair it with a matching nude scarf as a turban to show off the beautiful detail. Accessorize with metallic gold or rose gold heels and clutch with only a couple of dainty jewellery to finish off the look. If you want to take it a little bit further, spoil your lips with a red lipstick to really show em’ who’s boss!

Embellished Long Sleeve Maxi Dress

Go all out in this heavy weight embellished dress with a boat neck and cinched waist with a cowl back. You don’t need to wear any jewellery but you could opt for a pair of gold studs if you wish. Pair it with classic gold heels and a simple clutch to let the dress do all the talking. To cover the back, wear a under toned shirt underneath and a scarf to match. Finish with a romantic and soft make up.

Off Shoulder Corset Top Fishtail Embellished Maxi Dress

If delicacy is what you’re after then you can’t go wrong with this beautiful embellished chiffon dress with a cold-shoulder design. You won’t have to worry about stealing the show because this gorgeous maxi dress will do the trick for you. Cover up with a high neck crop top and this time pair it with some silver accessories. I think to keep this outfit true to it’s femininity, pair it with a beautiful under toned lace scarf.

Lavender Tulle Maxi Dress With Velvet Contrast


Why not try a gorgeous lavender lined tulle which features a plunge neck and contrast velvet ribbon that ties around the waist and finishes into a bow at the back. Pair it with a textured long sleeve crop top or bodysuit in the colour black or silver and finish it with a matching pair of heels and clutch. With this understated dress, there is no limit to accessories with a pair of gorgeous earrings and necklace. You can either pair it with a lavender scarf or match your scarf to your undershirt.

Embroidered Halter Neck Maxi Dress


I’m not sure if you can see a pattern but anything with gorgeous details are what proms are all about this year. This gorgeous sheer maxi lace dress has an exaggerated v-neckline with a high neck tie. The dress has a cut out where the dress falls to the floor so I’ve suggested some leggings for coverage as well as a variety of pastel coloured crop tops. Add a pastel coloured headscarf and go all out with the accessories. There’s also a variety of different styled heels and clutches as there is so many directions for you to take to further compliment this beautifully detailed dress.

It is seriously hard to choose my favourite but if it was my Prom all over again, I’d totally go for the embellished long sleeve maxi dress or the off shoulder corset top fishtail embellished maxi dress.

Prom night is the event that I for one looked forward to throughout high school so make sure you make the most of the night with your close friends and dance until your heels come off.
