Prom gloves can add an air of style and sophistication to any young girl’s formal dress. They bring to mind the classic looks of a bygone era while being right at home with the most modern of designs.
When selecting prom gloves, it’s important to consider the best color and design to complement the accompanying dress. The most popular formal glove styles fall just above or below the elbow. Gloves that end just above the wrist are another possibility, although they can look odd if not worn carefully; one doesn’t want to give the impression she forgot to take off her winter gloves when she entered the room. Short gloves can also look childish, like something a little girl would wear with her new Easter dress. When pairing prom gloves and dresses, care should be taken to balance the length of the gloves with the sleeves of the dress. There should be a definite space between the top of the gloves and the edge of a sleeve or off-the-shoulder strap, while the top of the glove can rise higher with a sleeveless or strapless gown.
Prom gloves are most commonly available in basic colors like white, cream, and black. Some white gloves may be dyed to match the color of a dress, although it is important to match the shade exactly. It would be better to pick a pair of gloves in a complementary color than to wear an obviously clashing hue of dark red or bright blue.
It’s also necessary to consider the fabric of the gloves. The majority of gloves worn to the prom are satin. Lace and crochet are also available if they would blend with the style of the dress better. Velvet is another option, and velvet gloves are more likely to come in dark, rich colors to match the luxurious feel of the fabric.
Prom gloves are available in department stores, bridal shops, and from online prom dress retailers. They can also be found at stores specializing in accessories, stocked next to rhinestone jewelry and satin purses. Try on any gloves before wearing them to prom to make sure they fit the arm well and won’t sag or fall down.
Many teen girls decide to pass up a chance to get a manicure when they are going to be wearing prom gloves with their formal dresses. They figure that it doesn’t matter what their hands will look like since they will always be covered by the gloves. However, it would be quite a feat to spend the entire night with their hands encased in the gloves. Certainly, at the very least, they will want to remove their prom gloves during dinner. They should take care not to let ragged nails or chapped hands detract from the rest of their mature, sophisticated look.
When it comes time for prom, the right accessories can make all the difference in pulling together a stunning look. Prom gloves can provide the perfect finishing touch to a dazzling prom fashion.
