Homecoming Regality – How to Dress for the Homecoming Court

Aug 22, 2016

So you’ve been picked for homecoming court: congratulations! Now the question is, what do you wear? Whether you need a homecoming court outfit for the pre-homecoming festivities, such as the homecoming game promenade, or are looking for your dream homecoming court gown for the big night, DressProm has all the most glamorous numbers around. Your homecoming weekend outfit should represent your big personality and perhaps pay tribute to the regal traditions of the queen’s court or your school colors.

For the Homecoming Game

If your school’s traditions require the court to appear on the field at the homecoming game, you’ll need a special outfit for the occasion. Unlike your homecoming gown, this outfit can be on the casual side, but you’ll still want to be semi-dressed up. We love the idea of showing your school spirit with a prideful style done in your team colors. Court members are often asked to wear boutonnieres or corsages, so make sure you account for that when picking a dress.

For the Homecoming Dance

If you’ve been selected for homecoming court, you’re probably feeling the pressure of finding that picture-perfect gown. We always recommend court members wear something seriously show-stopping — after all, the whole school’s going to be looking at you! Channel your inner queen before the big announcement with a ball gown homecoming dress and you’ll feel like a 21st century Cinderella. We adore Blush’s line of two-piece homecoming gowns for the season, like the spectacular Two-Piece Blush Ball Gown!

If you’d like to show your edgy side without compromising the classic princess look, you can always opt for a cupcake homecoming gown with a short, flirty skirt that will have you twirling all over the dance floor. To channel your inner royalty and pay tribute to the fall and winter homecoming season traditions, consider a dark-colored homecoming dress in maroon, navy or gold. No matter which style you choose, you can’t go wrong when you complete the look with a dazzling tiara.

DP July 1

When it comes to your quinceanera, the color of the dress says it all. A Quinceanera is a Latin American tradition for young women as they celebrate their coming of age at fifteen. This special ceremony is teeming with tradition. There are many religious customs involved, as well as symbols of the momentous occasion.

The color of the quinceanera dress like a tiara and cross hold a distinctive place in the ceremony. Purple is considered a color of royalty. So, when you are picking out the amazing dress for your noteworthy day, think purple.  Now, don’t turn your nose up at the little girl color as you are preparing to show the world that you are a coming of age young lady. That idea is non-sense. Purple is a grownup color. It’s not just for little gals.

You can look absolutely stunning in a royal purple dress that will have you showing off your fabulous style that is anything but juvenile. Purple is most certainly a color that is decidedly feminine and will have the dramatic effect that you are craving since you are the center of attention.

10 Fun Quinceañera Traditions For Your Party

Jun 14, 2016

may11

In Latin American cultures, girls celebrate the transition into womanhood on their 15th birthday with a special celebration known as a Quinceañera. This is similar to a Sweet 16 party in the United States, but with religious roots and many unique traditions. Here are 10 fun Quinceañera traditions you may want to incorporate into your party:

1.) Church Ceremony

A traditional Quinceañera party starts off with a church ceremony where the girl is accompanied by a court of her peers, her parents and her God parents.

2.) The Court

A court of 14 girls (damas) and 14 boys (chambelans) accompanies the girl on her big day, participating in festivities and ceremonies. The 14 couples represent each year of the girl’s life.

3.) First Dance

The first dance at a Quinceañera is reserved for the girl’s father.

4.) The Gown

The Quinceañera gown is traditionally very elaborate. Huge ball gowns with layers of tulle netting are worn to achieve a princess look. Light pink and white are the most commonly worn colors.

5.) The Food

No party is complete without food. Quinceañera celebrations are known for their elaborate feasts and foods served represent the culture of the girl.

6.) Parent Participation

Unlike other coming-of-age traditions, the Quinceañera requires heavy parental involvement during ceremonies and festivities.

7.) Sponsors

Elaborate parties are expensive and it’s traditional for families and even communities to pitch in for the festivities. Sponsors can be neighbors or relatives.

8.) Candle Lighting

During the ceremonial part of the Quinceañera, a girl will light candles to honor those that have played an important role in her life. It is traditional for the girl to choose 15 people.

9.) Firsts

The first public dance, first pair of heels and first time being allowed to date are all milestones marked by the Quinceañera.

10.) Gifts

Unlike a regular birthday party, a Quinceañera involves gifts that are more symbolic such as bibles, rosaries, dolls and more.

Quinceañera Style Guide: How to Accessorize for the Big Day

Jun 7, 2016

may9

You’ve found the perfect Quinceañera dress, but now it’s time to accessorize. The right combination of shoes, jewelry and other accessories can complete your look and make your party a true success. When searching for accessories, think about your party’s theme, the style of your dress, your individual taste and whether or not you’ll be performing a dance at your party.

Dress Accessories

may10

First, think about the dress. You’ll need a pair of shoes to wear with it that are comfortable enough to dance in, yet elegant enough to compliment the design. Jewelry and a small handbag can also be included. When choosing jewelry, take into account the style of the dress. For example, beaded high necklines rarely require a necklace, but a sheath dress can benefit greatly from a dramatic statement piece. Of course, every dress pairs well with a tiara.

Other Needs

may8


While it’s easy to get caught up in shoes and jewelry, it’s important to think about your other needs. From tattoo covering kits to petticoats and garment bags, the list of Quinceañera accessories can be intimidating. Try on your dress as soon as it arrives and you’ll quickly see if anything needs to be hidden, lifted or altered with discreet accessories.

With the right accessories and a beautiful gown, you’ll be ready to walk into your Quinceañera with your head held high. Shop for all of your Quinceañera accessory needs at DressProm.net for the best selection and lowest prices.

Find the Perfect Style for your Quinceañera at Dressprom.net

May 26, 2016

You only turn 15 once and you’ll want your Quinceañera party to be absolutely unforgettable, so it’s important to choose the right dress for the big night. Celebrate the next chapter of your life by stepping into your birthday bash wearing a fabulous dress from DressProm.net. We carry dozens of Quinceañera dresses to choose from, making it easy to find a dress that not only compliments your body shape, but also strikes the perfect balance between sweet and sophisticated, marking your entrance into young womanhood. Use these style tips to find the perfect dress for your sweet 15 party:

Tall

may1

If you’re tall, a dress with a defined waist will accent your height and help define your silhouette. A dress with too much volume can literally overwhelm the room on a taller frame, so use your long limbs to your advantage by choosing a design that’s more on the slender side. A sash or a belt that runs across the thinnest part of your body can help accentuate your curves and break up a long frame. Strapless gowns are also very nice on taller girls.

Petite

may2

Petite girls look fabulous in drop waist dresses. The elongated waistlines create the illusion of a longer torso, which helps lengthen the wearer and make them appear taller with a slimmer upper body. Put on a tall pair of heels and add a full skirt to look taller and curvier. Some people say that short girls shouldn’t wear a princess ball gown, but we couldn’t disagree more!

Curvy

may3

Curvy girls will look all grown up in a corseted gown. The structured bodice will help create and define the waist, giving you an hourglass shape. Corset gowns are typically beaded and have the sparkle and shine many 15 year old girls crave. A lace-up back will also allow for a perfect fit on your big night.

Style tip: If you’re self-conscious about your shoulders or have a wide upper body, pair your dress with a matching bolero jacket. The added coverage on your shoulders will help create a slimming effect on top to balance out your overall shape.

Narrow

may4

Girls with a narrow waist and slender hips will look super svelte in a mermaid dress. The form-fitting design accentuates a spender silhouette and remains tight until the knee where it flares out dramatically, like the end of a mermaid’s tail. Try a dress with added beading or embroidery for extra pizazz. Shear backs and high beaded neck lines are also very popular this year.

Large Bust

may5

For those that are well-endowed, a halter dress is a great choice. High beaded neck lines are very stylish and choosing a halter dress for your Quinceañera will give you the coverage and support you need without sacrificing style. Halter dresses are great at keeping everything covered during high-energy dances. Halter dresses come in a wide range of styles with full or slender skirts.

Small Bust

may6

It may seem counter-intuitive, but girls with a small bust can benefit from added embellishments along the chest. Fun embroidery, beading or other pretty details like flowers, ribbons and sequins will help to create the illusion of a fuller chest, adding curves and helping those self-conscious about their upper halves feel more mature. Look for a dress with decoration that ends right under the bust line to maximize the effect.

Best Dresses for Busting a Move at Prom

Apr 20, 2016

Is dance-ability something to take into consideration when shopping for a prom dress? Absolutely! You didn’t get all dressed up to stand in a corner and watch everyone else having fun. The best prom dresses are the ones that look fabulous, but also allow you to easily move around comfortably and of course, gracefully.

When choosing a gorgeous dress that will allow you to dance the night away, keep these features in mind:

  • Length. Short dresses really do work better on the dance floor. Dresses with long trains only do well walking down the aisle at your wedding. Even then, brides typically shorten the length when it is time for the reception. There are amazingly glamorous short prom dresses that will give you the right amount of style for the occasion and allow you to do more than hang onto your date during the slow songs.

Prom1

  • Top. If you’re going to be dancing, you need a dress that provides support in the bust area. You want to be able to move without worrying about having a wardrobe malfunction that is going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons.
  • Twirl-ability. Okay, so you’re not five anymore spinning around the kitchen making your pretty dress twirl around. However, there is something to be said for a fuller skirt that twirls on the dance floor. They’re flirty and fun.

prom2

  • Accents. How much sparkle depends on your personal taste, but a little glam will make you shine on the dance floor.

Prom night is a special night. You want it to be one of those standout moments that you will think back on and smile about. What makes the evening a night to remember isn’t just standing and posing for pictures. It’s sharing special dances and moments with your date and friends. So pick a dress that will let you get out on the dance floor and enjoy yourself.

Workouts to Get You Prom Ready

Apr 4, 2016

If you want to feel amazing for prom, a great exercise routine can give you the boost of confidence you need. These workouts are designed to help you tighten and tone certain areas that will be on display in some of the hottest dress styles available this season.

A Sculpted Back for a Backless Gown

A strong back looks absolutely stunning in a plunging back dress. Here’s how to get that look:

  • Pull-ups: Your palms should be facing forward on the bar. Make sure to lower yourself down slowly and control the motion.
  • Superwoman: Lie face down and lift your arms, head, chest and legs up off the floor.

Chiseled Arms and Shoulders for a Strapless Dress

A strapless or a halter dress requires totally toned arms and shoulders. Here’s how to achieve it by prom night:

  • Push-ups: Place your hands directly under your shoulders for more focused results.
  • Bicep curls: Bust out the dumbbells and focus on tightening your biceps with each rep.

Toned Legs for a Sexy Mini

When you’ve decided to go for a short prom dress, you want to make sure your legs are on point. Use these exercises to get the look:

  • Squats: When doing squats, be sure to keep your back straight and your feet immobile.
  • Lunges: Alternate sides while doing lunges to get even results. Put your hands on your waist for balance and keep your knees pointed forward.
  • Calf raises: This easy exercise just involves lifting up onto your toes. Hold onto a railing or other stable object for balance.

Tight Abs for a Curve-Hugging Dress

In a form-fitting dress, flat abs help to accentuate your other curves. Here’s how to get tight, toned abs for your bodycon prom dress:

  • Sit-ups: Have a friend hold your feet down to make this classic exercise a little easier.
  • Crunches: Keep your neck stabilized and focus on movement powered by your ab muscles, not your back.
  • Planks: Focus on keeping your abs tight while holding a plank pose.

Step one is finding the perfect dress at DressProm.net. Step two is using these exercises to feel your very best on prom night. Step three is having the best night ever!
