Looking classy for proms

BY: Hadiza Nuhhu-Billa Quansah

IF you follow social media trends, you will see how some parents are displaying pictures of their children who just had their proms. Just like the way in public schools, students who complete junior high schools go with their Kente fabrics, scarfs, beads and traditional sandals for performances and group pictures, proms come with a different touch. 

 

A prom is simply a semi-formal (black tie) dance or gathering of high school students. They are a common feature among high school students. High school juniors attending the prom may call it “junior prom” while high-school seniors may call it “senior prom”.

In practice, this event may be a combined junior/senior dance. For this event, most of the young ladies wear prom dresses that show off their curves. There are daring open back gowns that will have heads turning and cute short cut-out dresses for junior prom. Those in the universities are equally joining the prom train. We bring you some outfits that can be worn to proms. Fashion experts say choosing the right prom dresses can seem overwhelming.

 

This is because there is the need to consider colour and silhouette. The fabric the dress is made of is equally essential.

 


You can have a prom dress made of chiffon, velvet, taffeta, lace, sequin, organza, georgette, silk, among others. Some prom dresses come in the form of lace gowns which are either with sleeves or strapless.

 

 

 

They are often embellished with dazzling sequins, metallic fabrics, or beadwork that will give the wearer a sensational spotlight-stealing look for any occasion you want to make special.
