FashionProm Shoe Styles – Our Fave Trends

We’ve shown you our fave dresses and how our blogger babes get dressed up, now it’s time to talk about prom shoe styles! We’ve rounded up our top five favorite trends to try out for prom 2017. Which one will you wear?

Luxe Lucite

prom shoe styles - lucite

 

Arguably one of the trendiest shoe looks out there, Lucite is definitely having its moment in the fashion world! It’s clear to see why street style stars and celebs have fallen in love with this look, as it helps shape legs while appearing to defy gravity. This shoe trend is perfect for fashionistas who are all about making a statement on prom night.

Solid Gold

prom shoe styles - metallic

What prom look is complete without a little bit of metallic glam? Gold shoes are a fun way to add glamour to your prom style, while still matching with almost every color under the rainbow. Worried about mixing metals? Don’t be! Pairing your gold kicks with a different metal-toned dress or accessories is a surefire way to show your fashion cred by playing up the unexpected!

Low Block Loves

Walking in heels can be daunting, especially if the first time you are trying it out is prom night. That’s where the of-the-moment low block heel comes to the rescue! Just because they aren’t 4 inches high doesn’t mean these heels are low in style. Beyond being completely on-trend, a lower heel means you can dance all night without discomfort. Try them out with metallic accents, overall glitter or even a bold floral print to complete your glam prom look.

Blush Crush

There is no denying that blush has been having an extended stay at the top of our list of favorite color trends. Neutral enough not to clash with most dresses, yet special enough to pull some attention to your pretty pedicure, blush shoes add a femininity to your prom look all the way down to your toes. We’re especially loving the velvet shoe for even more style points!

Simple Elegance

When your dress is insanely fabulous, these subtly chic shoes will be the perfect complement but won’t steal the spotlight. Black and nude sandals are a classic for a reason, but special touches like lace-up details and ankle ties keep them from being boring. Plus, shoes like these will be in style for a long time, so you’ll get plenty of wear out of them after prom.

BeautyProm Perfect Hair – The Tousled Ponytail

We’re absolutely loving ponytails for a simple yet chic hairstyle for special occasions! With prom just around the corner, we wanted to share our latest favorite take on the classic ponytail. This version features soft texture and tousled volume for a romantic look with a little bit of an edge. Read on to get the full steps for this prom perfect hairstyle!

Prom Perfect Hair - Hero

Step 1: If your natural hair texture is straight or wavy, start with clean, air-dried hair. If you have naturally curly hair, blow out clean hair with a round brush for a sleeker starting point.

Step 2: Add texture to hair by wrapping 1-inch sections around a 1½-2 inch barrel curling iron. The result should be loose waves. If your waves are slightly springier, don’t worry! As you continue working with the hairstyle the waves will loosen to a more natural finish.

Prom Perfect Hair - Steps 1 & 2

Step 3:  After curling all of you hair, gather the top section, starting at the arches of your eyebrows and ending at the back of the crown, creating a V shape. Twist and clip out of the way.

Step 4: Gather the remaining loose hair into a high ponytail at the back of your crown. Secure firmly with a hair tie, but be careful to keep some texture on the sides.

Prom Perfect Hair - Steps 3 & 4

Step 5: Once the ponytail is secure, unclip the top portion of your hair and with a fine-tooth comb or teasing comb, lightly backcomb the underside of the top section. This will add volume and texture to the top of the hairstyle. Split the top section into two halves on the left and right side of your head.

Step 6: Take the right section of hair and loosely twist back toward the ponytail. Secure in place with bobby pins.

Prom Perfect Hair - Steps 5 & 6

Step 7: Repeat Step 6 on the left side of the head.

Step 8: You should now have two loose ends of hair pinned at the top of the ponytail. Take these loose ends and lightly wrap around the base of the ponytail, covering the hair tie. Pin ends in place with bobby pins, being sure to secure them through the base of the ponytail for a firm hold.

Prom Perfect Hair - Steps 7 & 8

Step 9: Review your hair in a mirror (it helps to have a handheld mirror or phone camera to check out the back!) and lightly adjust pieces until you have your desired texture. Spray with texturizing spray to help strands maintain their tousled appearance. You may also want to secure the hairstyle with firm hold hairspray.

Step 10: That’s it! Check out your chic ponytail! This hairstyle would look great with a variety of prom dress necklines and styles!

*You may be able to purchase the Lemon Simple Syrup online (we used Sonoma Syrup’s Meyer Lemon version – so good!) or at specialty food stores and bottle shops, but making your own is as simple as combining sugar, water, lemon zest and lemon juice. See below for a simple syrup recipe you can use in anything from happy hour cocktails to summer afternoon sweet tea!

Lemon Simple Syrup (makes about 1 1/2 cups):

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup water

Juice and zest from one lemon

Heat sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until sugar has dissolved and the mixture is clear. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and zest, stirring until just combined. Cover the mixture and allow to steep until cool. Once cooled, remove the lemon zest and store the syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four weeks. (This recipe was adapted from The Pioneer Woman website.)
