For as long as anyone can remember people have been turning to movies, television shows, and books for inspiration. This seems to be especially true when it comes to things like weddings and proms. Wedding days and prom nights are special, and every woman wants to look her best.
Everyone under the age of 35 has felt the influence of Harry Potter. The character of Hermione Granger proved that girls don’t have to be shy and sweet to be liked. Hermione proved that she could hold her own, be extremely smart, and also enjoy being a girl. When it comes to picking a role model, you’ll find worse choices (*cough* Bella Swan *cough*).
If you ask most girls what their favorite Harry Potter moment was, they’ll almost always tell you that it was the dance that took place about halfway through Goblet of Fire. The dance was the first time that Hermione stopped becoming a tom-boy and showed Hogwarts that she was a beautiful woman. This is just the kind of reaction every girl dreams of getting when she is searching for her prom dress.
Any girl who wants to channel her inner Hermione on her prom night will want to take care when looking for a dress. She’ll want to stay away from fussy, frilly dresses that make dancing difficult. You’ll want to look for something that’s pretty and elegant.
Chiffon is a great choice when it comes to a prom dress. Chiffon is light enough that it makes moving around easy, but also pretty and very feminine. Chiffon shows off your figure without being clinging or two tight. Stick to a single color of material which will not only allow you to show off your body, but will keep the dress from becoming too busy, just make sure that the color flatters your skin tone.
When you’re looking at prom dresses you should also think about how much dancing you expect to be doing that night. Strapless dresses can be beautiful, but the worry of it slipping while you’re dancing might not be worth it to you.
A final tip for emulating Hermionie’s elegance is once you’ve selected the perfect prom dress, don’t wear so much jewelry that it distracts from the dress and your natural beauty.
Most importantly, don’t forget to have fun!!
