Creative Prom Theme Ideas for 2019
As the year comes to a close and Yuletide festivities are slowly getting ticked off your calendars, plans for the year to come are already beginning to take shape. Among the exciting things that we look forward to in the New Year are new opportunities for celebration, like your upcoming prom.
Before you start looking at prom dresses 2019, check out these three ideas inspired by this year’s trendy prom themes that you and your squad can prepare to dress up for:
This classic theme for prom night is always a hit and there’s not much to wonder why it is so. Dressing up inspired by your favorite Hollywood celebrities strutting on the red carpet and posing for the paparazzi is a very enticing way to convince young ladies and lads to doll up.
Plus, it’s the perfect night for taking loads of pictures on the red carpet with the spotlights on your glamorous ensemble. For this theme, you can take a lot of inspiration from the best red carpet gowns celebrities chose to wear over the years. You can go for the classic long black gown like Dakota Johnson’s choice for the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, which was a sexy Gucci creation with crystal embellishments on the back section that made it extra special. You can also opt to be a real standout by going the extra mile and wearing statement creations inspired by Rihanna’s Met Gala looks.
The lads can look sharp and dapper in their finest tuxedos, tailored suits, black ties, and patent leather dress shoes.
1. Red Carpet
2. Fairy Tales
For those who grew up with Disney’s princesses, from Snow White to Elsa and Anna, we know that princesses share a magical dance with their princes to celebrate every happily ever after. Who hasn’t wondered what it would feel like to be Cinderella dancing with Prince Charming in the most beautiful ball gown and luxurious glass slippers? So, yes, dressing up as your favorite character in your favorite fairy tale is definitely a charmer.
For a fairy tale themed prom, the ladies can channel their inner princesses in shimmery ball gowns of the lightest shades of pinks, blues, and purples. If you want to get inspiration for a modern take on these princess gowns, take a look at Paul Vasileff’s Disney-inspired dresses, which couture collection was showcased at the Paolo Sebastian Spring/Summer 2018 show. The ethereal creations are definitely swoon-worthy. Unless of course you would rather dress up as The Little Mermaid’s Ursula or Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent, then go ahead and don a ravishing long black ensemble.
The lads can dress up as charmingly as every Prince Charming in the fairy tales. Again, unless they would rather dress up as Beast before Beauty’s kiss or Aladdin before the Genie granted him three wishes.
Masquerade balls date back to the beginning of the Renaissance movement in Europe, a time when art and beauty were the sultry ideals. These dances were previously held only for society’s upper classes, but as it gained popularity, it also became less restrictive to social class, thus making it more inviting and exciting.
If you are attending a masquerade-themed prom this 2019, your aim will be to create a look that makes guests want to get to know the person behind the facade. So, apart from your ostentatious frock, make sure that you have an eye-catching mask that is unique and has a mesmerizing appeal. You can opt for the classic masks or be more modern and paint the mask on to your face with make-up or airbrush paint.
