Prom Inspiration from the 2015 Grammy Awards

If your favorite part of awards season is the fashion, you’re not alone. There’s nothing we love more than watching celebrities parade down the red carpet in couture, and Sunday night’s Grammy Awards were no exception. From ball gowns to pantsuits and everything in between, this year’s looks were downright dazzling, and full of inspiration for the upcoming prom 2015 season.

We’ve chosen five of our favorite red carpet dresses from the Grammy’s, and matched them with Glitterati gowns so you can attend prom in star style.

1. Ariana Grande’s dress–all white with a hit of sequins–was fun, youthful, and flattering. The recipe for a perfect prom dress.

Get the look: With Mc Duggal Prom style 91007, a one-shoulder sheath style dress with a slit, similar to Ariana’s.

5 Tips for Buying Prom Shoes

prom shoes

Once you have your prom dress picked out, the next step it to find the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. Here’s a quick guide to picking out the

1. Choose the right hue. The color of your dress will determine the shade of the shoes you buy. If you’re wearing a colored dress, for example, metallic or nude shoes will be your best bet, since it will be hard to match a shoe to the color of your dress exactly, and black can look harsh against bright colors or pastels. If you’re wearing a white, black, or neutral dress, you can’t go wrong with metallic or black shoes. Or, add a pop of color to your outfit with a colorful pair.

2. Make sure they’re comfortable. As cute as a pair of shoes might be, if you can’t walk in them, you shouldn’t buy them. Remember, you’ll be wearing them for 5 or 6 hours, and much of the time, you’ll be dancing! Prom night is about having fun and making memories, and it’s better to err on the side of comfort and have a blast, than go for six-inch pumps and have to sit at your table while your friends dance.

3. Bring them to your alterations. If you’re getting your dress altered, buy your shoes before you head to the seamstress. This way, you can try them on during your appointment, to make sure your dress is the right length when you have your shoes on.
