When your class reunion roles around it is a great opportunity for you to see your old friends and school mates and it is sure to be a fun time had by all. You can take the time spent there and learn about what everyone has done with the past ten years of their lives and compare stories with everyone you run into.
Getting ready to go to a class reunion can be stressful though as you may run into a problem deciding what to wear. This stress can be eliminated by doing a little planning ahead for both guys and gals alike. Here are some tips to get you on the right track to class reunion success:
Primp up early: Before you decide what you will be wearing, be sure you will look your best in it by getting all your primping done before the reunion rolls around. This means getting your hair done and colored, getting a manicure, pedicure, you name it. Don’t wait until the last minute and scramble, instead start the week before the reunion. This will give you plenty of time and leave you much less stressed. You should also try on your outfit and be sure that it fits you before the actual night of the reunion.
Women: A safe bet is the little black dress for the women. The length should be about down to the top of the knee and whether or not you want it sleeveless or just short sleeved will be a personal preference on how much skin you are alright with showing. If it is chilly out you can jazz up the look with a bright wrap. Dress up the look with a nice pair of sandals that are on the risqué side and carry a small purse that matches. Bring out the black in the dress by wearing silver colored jewelry and go with a bold bracelet to tie in the whole outfit. This will leave you looking as great as the day you graduated from school.
Men: Men can’t go wrong with a nice suit that is topped off with a stylish looking neck tie. Of course you may not want to get that fancy in which case you can probably get away with just wearing a pair of dress pants and a long sleeved button down shirt. As for the tie, if you are not sure whether or not you want to wear one simply put a good looking one in your pocket. Once you get to the reunion take a minute or two before you get out of the car and observe what all the other guys are wearing. If the majority of them have on a neck tie then you can wear yours, if not you can keep it in your pocket just in case or you can leave it behind in the car.
Above all else be yourself and have fun. You certainly want to dress to impress but you should never feel like you have to act like you are something you are not, not even at your class reunion.
Many young girls dream of the day when they will go shopping for their prom dress. Even before dreams of a wedding dress ever enter the picture, most pre-teen and teen girls swoon over photos of the perfect prom dress. In fact, many girls start looking at dresses and planning for prom long before they are actually old enough to go to prom. When you go looking for a prom dress it is important to know exactly how to pick out the perfect one for you.
The first thing to do is to look at a variety of pictures of different prom dresses and find the types that most appeal to you personally. You may love shorter dresses or have a soft spot for long flowing gowns. You might be attracted to ruffled dresses with lots of flowery details and fancy touches. You might be most in love with simple elegant sheaths. You may find that soft romantic shades are what appeals most to you or it could be a bright, stand-out-from-the-crowd color. A very modern look may be the dress of your dreams or maybe even a classic gown that looks handpicked from history. Before you ever begin to shop for your prom dress, you need to have a definite idea of the type of gown that appeals to you most.
There are however a variety of other things to take into consideration in the choosing of your ideal prom dress. You will need to decide on a flattering color for your gown. Learn as much as you can about matching your complexion with the right clothing colors. This will guide you in your choice of the gown of your prom dreams. Choosing the wrong color can totally throw off your whole look. If you have a ruddy complexion and choose a red dress, you will find that your complexion looks worse than usual. If you have a fair complexion and light hair and you opt for white or pale pastels, you will look washed out and ghostly. Choose a color that flatters your hair and skin tone.
Your body shape will also determine the type of dress you should choose for prom. If you are very thin and small breasted, you will want to avoid strapless dresses and other looks that draw attention to your chest. If you have wide hips you will not want to wear a dress that has extra material and details in the hip area. If you are heavyset, you should chose classic lines, avoid too much extra detail and possibly select darker colors.
One of the key things in picking out your prom dress is to take the time to try on a variety of dresses. By doing so, you will find out exactly which colors look best on you and which styles best flatter your body type. Even if you eventually buy a dress online or from a catalog, it is important to spend time trying on real dresses so you can learn as much as possible about what you truly like and dislike in a prom dress.
