You should possess confidence and own your skin, so be loud and be bold and we have just the dress for you.

Caught Up On The Practicalities?
Worried about where you are going to keep your phone? Wondering where to start on choosing the perfect bag to complement your dress? Do not worry, we have some tips and tricks. We advise opting for a smaller bag, as not to distract from your dress and shoes and will also make carrying it less of a chore. Then comes choosing the colour, you can choose to match or contrast with your already chosen colours. We just advise taking a look at a colour wheel to find out which colours complement each other and to avoid colour clashing on prom day. You can also have some fun matching embellishments such as sequins on your shoes to a sequin embellished clutch bag! Or if you are like us and love glitter then you will love this champagne pink glitter clutch bag!
Not Practical Enough?
Considering not taking a bag, want easy access to your phone or just like tucking your hands away? Take this stylish and nonchalant approach to your prom pictures and show everyone how it is done. We have got you covered with our unique sparkly A-line backless prom dress with pockets! This trendy rose gold dress is highlighted by dazzling sparkles and a stylish criss cross back to separate your dress from the crowds!
Shoes Glorious Shoes!
The second statement piece of your outfit, where to start? Coordinating your shoes with your dress is essential in completing your look. If your dress is embellished with sequins then look for shoes which share this theme, this will tie your look together. Or go bold and contrast your shoes with your dress and take your style to another level! We love this pair of blush satin embellished block heels which will elevate your look as the crystals catch the natural light in photos and dazzle on the dancefloor!
More About Comfort?
You should always keep in mind your comfort, you will be walking around chatting, taking lots of pictures and then onto the dancefloor. The last thing you want to distract from your prom night is sore feet. Our top tip if you want to show off your stylish heels in pictures, you could consider taking a second pair of flat shoes for when you are dancing the night away… or straight after photos! These super sophisticated suede ballet pumps with organza bows would be the perfect all day shoe or just for accompaniment for twirling around the dancefloor!
Stuck In The Mud!
Our final and very important top tip is a pair of heel stoppers if you will be taking pictures on grass and walking around gardens. This will stop your heels from getting muddy and ruined so that they are pristine for pics. We also recommend using heel stoppers more often as it extends the life of your heels so that you can get plenty more wear out of them!
