Not to mention that the prom of 2021 will be so much different from the one that took place in the past years. There are going to be so many restrictions as compared to the traditional prom. From temperature checks to using sanitizers every time you touch something, 2021 prom night is definitely going to be one of a kind. Despite that, you will have unlimited pretty pictures after following these fashion hacks mentioned below.
Pick THE PERFECT Dress Or Tuxedo
The best part about prom is making you look different and better than your regular school days. Girls shed their tomboy look for a day to look like a movie star while boys get into a tuxedo to look like a prince charming for their date. All in all, everyone looks pretty and handsome.
But that will happen only when you pick a perfect dress/tuxedo for your special day. The first step to go dress/tuxedo shopping is to look for what’s trending. For instance, if you fancy yourself as Cindrella you can go for a ball gown to feel like royalty for the whole night. You can also pick an off-shoulder dress to look like a star. The choices are endless. In fact, you can also use the opportunity to raid your mom’s closet and make a classic entry to your prom.
On the other hand, boys can go for a distinctive monotone look with a hint of colour under the jackets. Pick the color of your vest that makes your eyes pop, and you are all done. You can also go for a classic blue tux, and if your date is wearing the same colour, you guys will definitely be a stylish power couple. Also, If you want to stand out from the crowd, you can go for a floral jacket that is so much in style right now. And in doubt, you can always go for a black and white suit combination to pull off the sophisticated evergreen look.
Pro Tip: Don’t wait until the last minute to look for your dress/tuxedo. Otherwise, you might have to settle for the one you don’t even like.

And if you are planning to keep up with your street look, you can also go for a high-low dress and pair them with something dramatic such as high heels and rhinestone sneakers. On the other hand, boys can go for a classy watch or a matching pocket square to go with the colour of the suit you are going to wear.
