While your prom dress is certainly the main focus of your formal ensemble, a good set of accessories can bring your outfit to the next level.

However, the end result is worth it if you take a little bit of time to find the right pieces that will make your prom gown truly shine. Be sure to check out the selection of prom accessories available from Prom Headquarters to put the finishing touch on your order.
How to Style Your Prom Accessories
If you're not sure where to start in choosing accessories for you prom dress, keep a few simple tips in mind. The first is to feel free to go bold with your choices. It may be tempting to keep your accessories understated, but you can make a bigger statement with bolder pieces. That being said, you should stick to just one or two statement pieces to make sure that you don't overwhelm your outfit. Another great tip is to stick to a certain color scheme. Too many different colors can start to look tacky. A good way to do choose a color scheme is to opt for a neutral-colored prom dress and choose accessories in one or two bold colors.
Shoes are one accessory that cannot be avoided when it comes to your prom outfit. There are several different choices when it comes to prom shoes. The style that you choose greatly depends on your dress and your height. Girls who are already naturally tall may want to opt for a cute pair of flats so that they can avoid towering over their dates in high heels. At the same time, short girls may prefer traditional high heels or platform wedges to help elongate their frames. Check out the prom shoes from Prom Headquarters to see some different styles.
Crowns and Tiaras
You don't have to be voted prom queen to feel like royalty on your prom night. There are very few times in your life that it will be acceptable to wear a crown and prom night is one of them. Take advantage of this unique opportunity by embellishing your prom hairdo with a sparkling prom crown or tiara from Prom Headquarters. These gorgeous headpieces add a touch of glamour to any outfit. Be sure to bring your tiara with you to your hair appointment so that your stylist can incorporate it into your hairstyle.
Headpieces and Hair Embellishments
The understated cousins of crowns and tiaras, prom headbands and hair embellishments add some glamorous shine to your hairstyle. These lovely prom hair accessories include bejeweled headbands and other headpieces as well as shining hair pins that are ideal for up-dos.
Match your jewelry to your dress or choose contrasting colors for a bold touch. With so many jewelry options, the choices can be overwhelming. Just keep in mind that you only want one or two large pieces. Keep the rest more understated or skip them altogether. Necklaces work well with dresses that feature open necklines while earrings are a must for almost every outfit. Other options include bracelets and rings, but these are dependent on your dress's style.
Clutches and Purses
The clutch or purse that you carry to prom is your most functional accessory. You'll want to give yourself enough room to hold your phone, money and makeup without choosing a bag that's too large. You'll also need to decide between a clutch that needs to be carried all night and a purse that can sit on your shoulder. This decision mostly comes down to personal preference. Just be sure to consider your color scheme before deciding.
