Prom is one of those times in our lives where we deserve to feel special, and where even the Grinch cannot remain grouchy for long. Beautiful clothes, nice time with friends, perhaps a limousine, what’s not to love? But getting ready for prom can be a little stressful, given the fact that all your girlfriends have been talking about dresses, hair and jewelry. Well, to make things just a tad bit easier and less stressful for you, we have an informal guide as to selecting prom bracelets.
When it comes to selecting a bracelet for prom, you need not stress out too much. For starters, it is all about likes and comfort. Go to a jewelry store and try on a few different styles of bracelets first. Always take a friend because anyone can use a second opinion. You have to see which one is comfortable. For instance, if it is a metallic bracelet, make sure that it is not too snug. If you are opting for a more traditional floral corsage, make sure that you are not allergic to the flowers and that they don’t sting your skin, because you don’t want to end up tugging at it all night long.
Next only to comfort is overall effect. You can either choose your prom bracelets to match your other jewelries and accessories, or to compliment them. Besides, there are tons of styles, designs and materials to choose from. For instance, there is always the traditional and pretty corsage. The thing is that right now, you need not stick to seasonal flowers. Many stores offer corsages made from hybrid flowers, meaning you can have a sunflower corsage even during the winter. Of course, you need to decide beforehand if you are buying your own corsage or is your date doing it for you.
If you are looking for a bracelet for prom that is a little different from that of everybody else, you can hunt down a few Boho or gypsy jewelry shops. Of course, you have to make sure that it does not clash with your dress. Bracelets made of fabrics like lace is a trend that has recently become very popular. You can give them a try if you are looking for something delicate and a little different at the same time. However, metallic bracelets like ones made with sterling silver or gold plated are among the most popular choices. While silver goes with everything, it is always a good idea to pair a gold bracelet with bold colors like red, black, or royal blue.
Of course, the bracelet also needs to be cost effective, because it makes absolutely no sense to spend tons of money and burn a hole in your pocket, all for the sake of buying the one thing, which you will probably not wear for the rest of your life. Look at some styles and local stores for this. Finally, if push comes to shove, you can always make a pretty bracelet for prom all by yourself.
