3 MONTHS BEFORE
If you're looking to get into shape or tone up for prom, it is high time to start exercising and eating healthy.
Make sure you take extra care of yourself - exfoliate your skin weekly and start a good facial regimen if you haven't already. Also, don't forget to moisturise your skin and drink plenty of water to achieve a healthy glow on your face.

Know Your Shape
First of all, determine your body shape and decide which style will cover your imperfections and highlight your best features. An A-line skirt is universally flattering for all body types; a maxi dress is a great option if you want to hide your legs and draw attention to the upper body.
It is always better to prepare in advance and have peace of mind knowing that your dream dress is already hanging in your closet. Don't leave your shopping for the last minute! Consider visiting online boutiques such as Evening Dresses UK for a wide selection of designs and affordable prices.
Makeup, hair, and accessories can make or break the look. Don't forget to pay attention to details. Is your nail polish matching your outfit? Is your complexion looking radiant and healthy? How are you going to style your hair?
Make sure that you always feel comfortable in everything you wear. That's far more important that strictly following all the fashion rules. The ideal prom dress should not only suit your body type, but also match your personality and your fashion style.

Did You Know?
Tulle has been around for more than three centuries.
"This versatile fabric was named for the city of Tulle, France where it was first made. The French began knitting a hexagonal mesh fabric around 1700. In 1840, Queen Victoria's wedding gown featured tulle for the first time, forever linking the fabric to bridal fashion. Nineteenth century fashion designer Frederic Worth introduced the veiled hat. Tulle enjoyed a resurgence in the 1950s in formal gowns for teens going to the prom, brides and bridesmaids." - ehow.com
