Yes, it’s that time of the year again for spring weddings and many other special events but the biggest event for teenagers especially, has to be prom. Prom season is here! It seems like everyone is talking about it, even hit ABC television show, Dancing With The Stars had a Prom Night theme this month. By now, everyone should already have their dates for the big night, a car or limo booked, and their tuxedoes, gowns, and shoes ready. Now, it should just be the time for choosing your jewelry. Jewelry is the final touch that will accentuate this and any special night of beauty, dancing, and fun. There’s no doubt that prom is one of the best highlights of high school, but preparing for this major night can also be majorly stressful. From the limo and tickets to the perfect dress and shoes, prom can cost a ton of money and all the jewelry options can be very overwhelming for a young girl so to save some time we’ll fill you in on the top 4 jewelry picks for prom this year.
Drop Earrings: It seems like some trends grow and grow, while others are gone before you know it. Drop earrings and dangle earrings are one of those trends that have continued to be a big part of the fashionable jewelry scene. A popular hairstyle for teen girls at prom are to have up-do’s and drop earrings such as chandeliers are a must with this look. Drop earrings are elegant and the way these earrings sway while you dance the night away will make any girl feel glamorous on this special night. At the 2013 Elle Style Awards, Kate Hudson swept her hair back in an effortless up do and completed her look with simple drop earrings.
Pearls: Not only grandmothers and mothers wear pearls, everyone can! Of course there is a certain elegance and luminosity that brings to mind grace and wisdom, and this is why pearls are still trendy today. White pearls have always been a classic choice. This season the trend has maintained its elegant reputation and now also colored pearls are the latest must have. For a more modern take on pearls, wear long strands of pearls layered over your gown. Also, we love the look of big pearl stud earrings and pearl bracelets as well. They’re so lovely, and they can be made to match with anything. Celebrities are loving this trend too and even stars like Rihanna sported the look of multiple layered pearl necklaces.
Cocktail Rings: Girls love rings and the bigger the better is best for prom night too! Cocktail rings are fashion’s great game-changers and these extravagant and extra-large cocktail rings come in so many colors, shapes and styles, you can wear them on both hands. Strong statement piece, such as an oversized cocktail ring can change the entire look of an outfit from drab to fabulous! Nicole Richie did just that as she went for a bolder look as she wore her large peacock cocktail ring with a simple cream-colored gown. If you are wearing more understated bracelets or none at all we would definitely consider wearing a bold cocktail ring. However, don’t forget to get a manicure since everyone will have their eyes on your hands!
Simple Necklaces: Most of the jewelry we’ve mentioned so far are dramatic pieces that grab a lot of attention. Since you don’t want to over-do it, we always suggest a very simple diamond pendant necklace. A classic diamond pendant or even a fun shape such as a flower or a star are perfect for prom. This trend hits right at your collarbone and is universally flattering as it goes great with any style of gown. You can even try this style with a deep v-neck gown or use it to highlight a strapless dress that shows off your neck and shoulders like Nina Agdal in her simple diamond drop necklace. If the rest of your jewelry is minimalist then you can wear a big and bold statement necklace like Kim Kardashian. However, a necklace no matter how bold or how simple it is, is the best way to brighten up any outfit and will forever be considered the ultimate accessory.
