Top 5 classic Prom Themes

As prom is creeping up quickly behind us, it’s time to look at the top 5 most common prom themes.

Taken from About Style.com, they give us some of the most popular themes they have seen throughout prom history.

1) Under The Sea :

On a dancefloor filled with sparkling “oceans,” colorful fish, and other intricate underwater wonders, you might mistake your prom dress for a mermaid fin and start going by alter-ego Ariel.

2) Walk of Fame :

Debuting your gorgeous dress on a red carpet will make you feel like an A-list celebrity. Cover the floor with “walk of fame” stars featuring the names of the senior class. A red carpet will complete this Hollywood-inspired prom theme.

3) A Starry Night :

The classic romance of a celestial theme is a perennial prom favorite. Though this is an easy prom theme to pull off – simply decorate with loads of metallic stars and strands of twinkly lights – this romantic theme packs a glamorous punch. Are you sick of your date’s dance moves? Just wish upon a star.

4) Hawaiian Luau :

What prom outfit wouldn’t be improved with a bright, frilly lei? Add “palm trees” and tropical flower arrangements, then ask the DJ toss on a few luau-worthy tracks – so much fun to dance to in your prom night finery.

5) An Evening in Paris:

The City of Love is always popular for romantic prom themes. A faux Eiffel Tower might sound like quite an endeavor, but the effect is well worth it. Grab a few talented art student to paint the landmark, then finish off with scenic “trees” and romantic park benches.

Men’s Fashion Week: An Overview 2015

They say Paris fashion week comes last on the European fashion calendar because it is the best. Fashion week shows us what we should be wearing in the upcoming year, and how to wear the certain clothes.Whether it be in Paris, London, or Milan,  this year we saw mostly dark suits, in different shapes, sizes, and textures. If anything is clear from Paris fashion week, it is that suits and trousers are loosening up now, though no dominant shape has yet emerged leaving editors and fans to sort through a mishmash of cuts and styles.

The tailoring is sharp indeed, with slim fit lines and a nod to many “vintage” cuts. Dolce&Gabbana sent suits out on the runway reminiscent of the dawn of the brand’s menswear in the nineties while Hedi Slimane at Yves Saint Lauren showed skinny tailoring that could have been cut by the master himself. Miuccia Prada also revisited a very Prada-esque aesthetic with her menswear, steering clear of Hawaiian prints or gimmicky accessories.
The colour palette ranged from traditional autumnal hues like burgundy and green to cool winter white and the ever so chic camel, which just exacerbated the elegance and volume of the outerwear. Blues were the accent colours of this traditional palette with grey and black dominating the catwalks.

Overall, the highlights of the collections were aplenty and the fashion strong, defined and often very wearable.
