FIDM Fashion Club | Prom Must Haves

Just in case you missed it last week…….I was featured as a guest blogger for The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, commonly known as FIDM. I actually graduated from FIDM in 2005 with a degree in Apparel Industry Management. I love this school so much, I can’t say it enough.
It was so exciting to be able to blog for the school that gave me amazing educational tools for my professional career. Along the way they have guided me, and groomed me to be the professional I am today. I am truly so lucky to have been able to attend such an influential school in the fashion world. So gratifying to be a part of such an amazing institution.

Thank you FIDM.

I have copied and pasted the photos and my writing below from the original article. You can see the actual article here.

Hard Clutch


These little beauties add just the right amount of sophistication on a very fun evening. An embellished clutch with rhinestones or pearls is the bling you need. Plus, they are the perfect size to keep all your prom night essentials in one place. Image: Sondra Roberts Hard Clutch, nordstrom.com

Sparkly Flats


It’s all the rage. Along with those nude hued, sky-high heels that are in fashion, we are also seeing a lot of ladies bring sparkly flats to the dance floor, which keep feet from getting too tired/hurt! There are some amazing options as far as sandals or flats that are dressy enough to match any outfit. Your feet will thank you later. Image: Badgley Mischka Sandal, nordstrom.com

Glitter Nails


This has been trending for quite some time, but for prom this is the most fun. This season it’s all about a lighter base nail color, with as much bling as you can add. Glitter, rhinestones, metallic color designs—add as much as you want, until your heart’s content. Image: Honey Nail Glam Crystal Couture Nail Polish, honeynailglam.com

Hair Bling


We are seeing are a lot of loose wavy braids and tousled up-dos for prom. The best part? The bling! There seems to be a lot of hair pins, combs, and even tiaras. Use a lot or a little—your hair will surely impress. Image: Tasha Cara Crystal & Faux Pearl Hair Comb, nordstrom.com

Nude Lips


Every season there are new lip trends, and prom is no exception. We are seeing a lot of nude, pink, blush tones for lips. Add on gloss in case your prince charming tries to pucker up Image: MAC Cosmetics x Zac Posen Lip Stick in Sheer Madness, maccosmetics.com

Above all—be safe and have a magical evening!
