Danelle Sandoval

So you’ve got your prom dress all picked out, but your outfit is missing a little something to take it to the next level, and make it extra special. Maybe it’s not a problem of finding the right shoes, but adding a little extra bling to make you feel even more like a princess. Whatever it is, we’ve got a few solutions that will make all your prom worries disappear and have you not only looking like the belle of the ball, but also feeling like one too!

Accessorize Your Updo! 

Hermatite Pearl and Crystal Flowers Decorative Hair Swag, $24.50

Who says your dress gets to have all the fun and sparkle? Hair is just as important as the shoes and nail color you choose. Whether you decide on loose waves, a cute top-knot or chignon, these adorable Hematite Pearl and Crystal Flowers from Claire’s will take your style to the next level. If you want to go more towards a boho look you can still wear jewels in your hair, just take a page out of Vanessa's book and go with a sheer yet blinged-out headband.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

The Crystal Flower Jewelry Set, $29.99

Layer on the bling like Selena Gomez did for the 2015 Met Gala. She wore a gorgeous diamond bracelet and dangly earrings to elevate her entire look. Maybe some ‘hair bling’ isn’t right, and you prefer the classic route like Selena of dangly earrings or going for with more of an impact with a gorgeous statement necklace. Nothing wrong with that! The answer to your prayers could be some real looking diamonds without having to pay the hefty price tag that comes with it. Icing has a set that includes a necklace, earrings, bracelet, and even some bobby pins! You get to mix and match everything from The Crystal Flower Jewelry Set with your dress before the big night.

Go Glam With A Rhinestone Clutch



Ready To Mingle Clutch, $35.00

The best way to carry all the essentials for the big night, and the most obvious choice for some extra shine would be your trusty purse – or in this case, clutch. You can’t go wrong by going all out with the sparkles or keeping it a little more low-key. If you want all eyes on you, and serious bag-envy from your girls then the Ready To Mingle Clutch from Charming Charlie is just what you’re looking for. Just look at how glamorous the dazzling clutch made Ariana Grande look at the 2016 Grammys.

Nail Your Shine

Today Was A Fairytale, $20.00

Just as important as the rest of the outfit – the inevitable manicure. You could go for classic nude, ballet pink or even break out of the mold by choosing a matte color. Break the box entirely by having your nails steal the show with some serious sparkles. Madison Beer went with gold glitter nails that were fire! Go with this mani look and prom night will be everything you dreamed of and more.

Wear Your Glitter Where You Can See It

Urban Spectrum Palette, $55

So maybe hair bling, a statement necklace or nails just aren’t what you’re looking for. You prefer to put your shine where everyone will be sure to notice it – on your face! To be more specific, on your eyes. So what could be more perfect than some metallic or glitter eye shadows? Kylie slayed the look with her gold glitter lids and you'll be the talk of the town if you go for this dazzling look! Urban Decay’s Urban Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette has shades that range from gold, to emerald, and midnight blue. Each has it’s own bit of sparkle to give you some extra shine and make your eyes pop.
