You need to keep your accessories pared down and classic. They can be either neutral or of the same tone as the dress. If you are unsure of how to achieve this you should go for a black clutch and black pumps. You should also wear silver stud earrings. To finish the look you should wear a sleek, simple hairstyle such as slicked-back ponytail or elegant chignon.
Go for a flapper dress
This dress was very common in the 1920s. While it’s impossible to find a vintage outfit, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t wear in a flapper dress. All you need to do is to find a flapper-inspired outfit. For example, you can go for a simple sleeveless shift dress that has a neutral color such as black or cream.
If you are looking for something extra you should go for a sleeveless dress with a fringe detailing and drop-waist.
What about the little black dress?
The popular little black dress is not only ideal for cocktail parties, but it’s also ideal for prom. For an ideal look you should work at enhancing your features. For example, you can choose to enhance your lips or eyes. If you want to have a glamorous look you should create a Smokey or classic cat eye.
When it comes to your hair you should consider going for a fancy up-do or a romantic braided style.
Take attention away from your legs
Since your hemline will be short, you should work at getting the people’s attention away from your legs. The best way of doing this is wearing an outfit with a high neckline. You should also consider choosing an outfit with a bold color.
