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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Prom Season 2016 Makeup Trends

Apr 1, 2016

Getting the right look for prom is easy when you follow some great makeup trends. These tips and tricks will make perfecting your prom makeup easy and effortless:

  1. Smoky eye: This look is especially stunning on people with darker eyes. Go big and bold on the eye makeup but keep your lip neutral.
  2. Perfect brows: For years, we ignored eyebrows, but now they’re back in fashion. Fill them in with a brow pencil that’s one shade lighter than your actual eyebrow hairs for a polished, glamorous look.
  3. Vintage glam: A cat eye combined with a bold, red lip color makes for a timeless Hollywood glam look, which is right in line with this year’s many retro-inspired trends.
  4. Shimmer and shine: Metallic makeup is one of the hottest 2016 makeup trends. You can make your eyes sparkle by using a metallic color for your eyeliner on prom night.
