How to wear my lace top for my prom?
I have a black top with lace sleeves and back from H and M. It is my prom night in a few weeks and I would like to wear it in a way that is not tacky, somehow cool and comfortable. I do not like pants that much and my style is casual/feminine. I am 17 and do not wish to feel “dressed up”.
It is a bit tricky to answer because I do not precisely see how the top looks like and do not know your bodytype but I am going to give you some options with what I know.
First I think that when you are seventeen, it is nice to stay on the “cool” side. Therefore not skyscraper pumps will be featured.
You can of course wear short skirts, if they are well chosen and worn, they won’t be tacky.
Here is how you could wear your top (PS: for the sets I picked a top that has probably more lace on it than yours…)
1. With a pop colour like bright yellow
I like yellow and black. If you only use one yellow item, there is few chances you’ll look like Maya the honey bee.
For this outfit, I chose an A-line skirt that is easily classy, wedge sandals to gain height while staying comfortable, a funny bag, because it is good not to be too serious, and purple nailpolish cause it perfectly completes yellow.
Bodycon mini skirt (only if your top is not bodycon)
Heart clutch with glitters (if you are not a cat person)
2. With another dark color like forest green
Black looks really nice with other dark colors such as forest green, burgundy, deep purple, etc.
To liven this up I added sparkles and a pop of poppy red on the nails.
Derbies are perfectly adapted to a prom night. With a short skirt they won’t shorten your silhouette. Plus you’ll be free to dance the way you want!
Of course, if you prefer more classic shoes (without sparkles) like black derbies/ballerinas/slippers or loafers go for it! And then wear a funny bag like the aforementioned heart bag.
Bodycon green skirt (if your top is not bodycon)
Flounce mini skirt (if your top is bodycon)
3. All black look that is not boring
As you said you like casual feminine looks, I composed a black “cool” outfit.
Black for a prom night can be boring. As you are French, I think that more than half of the girls will choose black clothes so you really have to make a difference if you choose this colour.
For instance, choose fluid black shorts instead of a skirt, and black boots for a rock attitude.
You can add a funny bag to make the outfit stand out even more.
