To A Wedding

Finding the right outfit for a wedding can be really difficult when it comes to wearing a fancy outfit but not upstaging the bride. This is why you should think about wearing your prom dress to the next wedding that you have been invited to. When it comes to buying a dress for a wedding, people tend to buy something new and never wear it again anyway, so why not reuse your prom dress and look amazing? Everyone will compliment your dress and you will feel amazing getting another use of your prom dress.

In College

In college, you get invited to many different events that have a range of different dress codes. This can often be quite costly especially if you don’t have a lot of money while you are studying. This is why it is a good idea to bring your prom dress with you to keep in your college wardrobe so that you can pop it on for any sort of fancy events that you need to go to. The plus side is that no one at college will have seen it before so it will look like a brand new dress anyway.

On A Girls Night Out

Everyone loves a good girl’s night out and sometimes these can be a little fancy. If you want to be able to shine on your girl’s night out, then you should think about reusing your prom dresses. Some prom dresses can make for excellent going out dresses, for example short lace dresses are all the range right now and thus can be used for numerous occasions after your prom. Just take a look at some of the Jovani Designer lace dresses and you’ll see how pieces like the “Ivory and Nude Lace Two Piece” could make for a great girls night out outfit. Think about all of the amazing pictures that you can get of your girls for Instagram with your amazing prom dress on show!

This is why you should think about taking your prom dress out of the closest and wearing it to the next charity ball that you get invited to. You will look just as stunning as you did on your prom night and the fancy dress will fit right in with the other dresses on show that night.
