For many, prom is one of the main highlights of high school. It is a fun party where everyone can enjoy themselves, but deciding what to wear is one of the biggest challenges. Prom dresses come in a variety of styles and colours, and with so many options to choose from, some wonder if it’s okay to wear a black dress to your prom. The answer; absolutely! 

Wearing a black dress has many benefits. Black is classy and timeless and it’s really hard to go wrong. It’s easy to accessorize, you will match with your date no matter what they wear, and you can wear the dress again, which is great because a lot of prom dresses end up collecting dust. Additionally, black is a colour that is flattering for everyone, so it will help you feel and look your best on this momentous occasion.

Simply put, black will never go out of style. It really is timeless, which is why you can wear your black dress to prom and many other events afterwards. Some dresses can only be worn once, especially if it is a vibrant shade. Colourful dresses are easily recognizable, whereas black is classy and can easily be worn multiple times. A black dress is a staple item in any wardrobe, so getting a new black dress or wearing one you already have is definitely okay. 

Another great advantage to wearing a black dress is how easy it is to accessorize it because the possibilities are endless! You can wear colourful costume jewellery, a pair of shoes that pop or decide to make a statement with bold earrings. You can add a beaded clutch or layer on necklaces or wear no accessories at all. The choice is yours and you can do whatever you’re most comfortable with, whether it’s adding a flashy accessory or keeping it simple. 

Wearing a black dress will also make it easy on your date because you will match no matter what they wear. Coordinating is fun and elevates your look so you can both wear vibrant accessories to contrast the black, which will create quite a look. You can even match with your friends and coordinate as a group. 

The element that most people appreciate about black dresses is that they are flattering on anyone. There’s something about putting on a black dress that makes everyone feel great. Colourful dresses may not flatter everyone’s figure, whereas a black dress is flattering for anyone who puts one on, regardless of body type or complexion.
