Stylists’ Picks: Prom All Over Again

Once our prom look book was on the site, we’ve had multiple “what if” conversations. What if you could do prom all over again? What would you wear? Each of our stylists had already dreamt up their favorite looks and of course were recommending them to prom-goers everywhere. These are their favorite looks if they were attending prom for Class of 2011.



I would do a standout color, like this Catherine Malandrino dress. I’d pair it with the A Little Nautical Cuff and Gold Crystal Hoop Earrings to give it a beachy feel. Can’t help but make it California Cool.

I’d keep it simple for prom this time around in the Black Tuxtini Dress. I’d style my hair down in long loose curls with the Erickson Beamon Chain Gang Earrings and carry the Pop the Cork Clutch for a relaxed, rocker vibe.

I’d be pretty in pink in the Powder Twist Gown by D&G. I’d wear my hair in a loose chignon and I’d be decked out in the Luminosity Pearl Earrings by Badgley Mischka and the Pearl and Crystal Ring by Lee Angel.

If I could go to prom all over again, I would be on the dance floor all night in the Orange Slice Gown. The bright orange is playful while the silhouette is classic – you get the best of both worlds!  To keep the focus on the dress, I’d add the Metallic Chain Bracelet and Gold Fortune Cookie Clutch.

If I could do it again, I would redeem myself from my boring prom outfit and make a statement in the Gypsy Glam Gown, Jade Drop Earrings and the Princess Leia Ring. It’s punk and sophisticated all at the same time.
