Bold prints and unexpected accessories will have you in cool girl heaven.
You guys, prom is about to become your EVERYTHING. Get ready to eat, sleep, breathe, and dream sparkly dresses, prom-posals, and photo booth poses. Get ready to answer one of the most important (ok, so not really, but in High School World™, YES) decisions of your life so far: WHAT DRESS ARE YOU WEARING TO YOUR PROM? It may not be for a couple of months yet, but prom season has arrived, and who is kicking it off but one of our all time fave retailers, Topshop. Starting today in New York City, the British company is hosting a PROM PARTY to get you in the mood for the coming onslaught. Tomorrow, Los Angeles Topshoppers will be able to get in on the fun, and finally, Friday you Windy City kids can get in on the action at the Chicago store. Each of the parties goes from 6-9 PM and will feature gifts with purchase, DJs, complimentary makeovers and hairstyling, yummy treats and more. Not only that, but you'll of course be able to shop for your prom look while you're boogieing down. Topshop has a specially curated prom section on their site, and we love how they took a super cool, non-traditional approach to their curation. A varsity jacket ($120) with your bold, mirror printed skater dress ($320)? Absolutely. Some amazing strappy boots ($220)? Duh. Top it all off with a bright pink pout ($15), some fun love/hate rings ($18) (so you can tell your date how you REALLY feel) and a smoky eye ($24) and you're all set to be the coolest girl in school on prom night.
Wearing white to prom doesn't mean you're the girl next door.
If you want to look a little girlier but aren't into the whole girl-next-door thing, Topshop's prom section can hook you up with a look that's sparkly as a spring day (give us a break, ok, it's the first day of the season we're feeling a little corny) but still packs a fashion punch. We love a good embellished dress, and this sleeveless high necked cocktail dress ($170) with a beaded neckline and sheer panels says nice but isn't anywhere close to bridal. We would love to toughen it up with a white moto jacket ($124) that you could totally wear on chilly summer nights all season and straight into fall, and a structured white crossbody bag ($35), not-your-average nude heels ($136) (black and white sunnies, and some glowy highlighter would pull the whole look together perfectly.
