You can try pinup dress in plum if you want more rockabilly than a princess. It has a number of layers of tulle underneath and is made of satin. When you dance this lovely skirt catches the light and brightens vibrantly.

If you are on a budget, choose a combination of skirt and corset top instead of the formal prom gothic dress. You can match them with your favorite accessories and mix them with other pieces of your outfits for a more versatile wardrobe. Try out a 3-way tiered skirt and mix certain elements of steampunk.

Before you could wear them for the prom night, try them out at home and walk in your new shoes to make sure they are comfortable. If you are not used to wearing heels which might start to hurt, try to bring backup flats.

In order to give your prom dress a finished look, choose funky evening bags to carry your items, your phone or wallet. You can check out a variety of skull purses that we have in stores. The skull purses go perfect with your gothic dress and leather pants.  Consider adding a pair of killer pumps for the final look. If you want to make a bold statement, choose metal trim high heels that can help you stand out on the dance floor. If you do not wear a high heel, purchase some flats and make sure you wear them before the actual prom night. Otherwise, you will spend the night limping around the dance floor.

Decide to whom you want to go with

When you are all set to go, decide carefully who do you want to go with. Most of the people love to go with a date, and few of them love to go single. However, it is always fun to go in a group of large people with whom you can have dinner before the prom and have fun during the party.

A good group usually consists of 10 people. If you want to have a larger group, it will be hard for you to make reservations for the dinner. Once your group is ready you are all set to go. Now you can decide how are you going to handle prom photos, who will be in the pictures. Discuss with your group members whether you are going to have a professional photographer or not. It is now time to make amazing memories down the line.

With your favorite dress and accessories sort, all you have to do is to wait for the perfect prom night. What are you wearing for this prom night? Do you have alternative prom inspiration ideas for this prom? Let us know!
