Silver is a timeless and versatile color, and works wonderfully for prom. Here are some ways to have fun and make the most out of your sterling prom look.
Silver is always a classic go-to prom dress color that is never overplayed. It’s dual purpose and perfect. Silver is essentially a neutral but is incredibly dynamic due to its metallic sheen and luster. This color is never boring and is sure to turn heads while remaining timeless and classic. The great thing about a silver prom dress is its utter versatility. Because it is essentially a neutral, it gives you an open playing field when it comes to accessorizing and accenting your look.
Since there are so many options when it comes to accessorizing, it would be best to decide on one theme, color, pattern, or overall look, and stick with it. A mismatch of accessories and accents can look like a mess and can ultimately detract from your dress, which is the main focus of your prom ensemble. When it comes to choosing accessories, jewelry, shoes, etc. you must first work with what style dress you have. A simple evening gown can work with just about anything, as well as a simple, A-line cocktail dress, but if your piece features textures, patterns, other material, embellishments or adheres to a specific style such as a specifically retro look, then its best to look at these aspects and start from there.
If you have a simpler dress, then there is more room for you to be experimental and creative with your jewelry and choice of shoe. If you want to go bold, choosing a bright or strong statement color can be the way to go. Darker, richer shades go best with silver since it is already a light color and will offset nicely. Consider colors like red, burgundy, a deep orchid, rich navy blues or emerald greens. You can also add additional pieces such as a shawl or shrug in the color of your choice to further add depth and dimension to your prom ensemble. But it’s always best to keep it simple. If you’re going with a color theme, one or two accent colors will do. The metallic nature of the silver is already pretty busy so one color accent will do just fine.
If your dress is more embellished, uses multiple fabrics and intricate designs, then simpler jewelry will work better for you. Pearls or simple gem stones, or even basic silver or gold necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, etc. will work wonderfully. If you want to have a little more fun, then choosing only one accessory can go a long way, such as choosing a single statement necklace. This way, you can still have fun accessorizing without detracting from your prom dress. If it has a specific style, such as that of a 20’s flapper, then appropriately vintage accessories will do wonderfully, or if it is more rocker chic then items utilizing more silver metal like spikes and studs will help enhance your prom look.
