Prom Ideas for the Tomboy

Prom is associated with formal dresses and perfectly coiffed hair, but this traditional look isn’t for everyone. Find your own personal tomboy look for prom so you can feel fabulous while remaining true to yourself and your style preferences.

Prom is often considered a cornerstone of high school and adolescence. While this occasion is often associated with dressing to the nines in flowing gowns and tumbling tresses, not every girls’ style is quite suited to fit the idea. But prom is for everyone and no one should shy away from it because they think their style does not suit the event. Prom is about having fun so make your outfit reflect who you are and what makes you comfortable. Just because big dresses are not quite your thing, does not mean you can’t look fabulous.

One easy option for tomboys when it comes to dressing for prom is the power suit. These bad boys can look super glam without the dress or even a hint of skirt. Suits can come in a variety of colors, but a traditional suit usually comes in a neutral color. This can allow you to play around with what you wear beneath the suit or blazer, accessories, shoes and hair. If you’re wearing a neutral suit, opt for a bold color to accessorize it, or go completely monochromatic for a very dramatic yet subtle effect. You can play up this look with unique statement necklaces and other simple pieces. If you’re not one to wear jewelry, one bold piece can go a long way without feeling like it’s weighing you down.

If you’re not into suits, you can always go for a punked out look. Maybe you’re more into a rocker chick vibe than the glitz and glamour, so try shaking up your prom look. You could wear an iconic pair of canvas Chuck Taylors with a dress with studded jewelry, black nail polish, and a knuckleduster clutch. This look is still a bit girly but with a unique twist. You can even mix and match eclectic accessories, prints, dresses and shoes for an eye catching yet comfortable look. Rock motorcycle boots with a cocktail dress, maybe throw a pair of lace-hemmed biker shorts underneath your skirt for added comfort and flare. Rock a studded watch, wear simple, natural looking makeup and a messy bun or bed-headed curls. Even messy hair is totally in. You can still look fashionable and fabulous without looking perfectly manicured. Evaluate what styles make you feel most comfortable and experiment with them. Take your everyday look to the next level so it still feels like you’re dressing up for the event, but in a way that totally suits you.
