“You can wear black at any time, you can wear it at any age. You may wear it for almost any occasion; a little black frock is essential to a woman’s wardrobe” said Christian Dior. While I agree with his opinion about the color black, I think the piece a woman should have in her wardrobe are black prom dresses, not a frock.

Accessorize Suggestions for Black Prom Dresses
There are many different ways to combine black prom dresses with accessories. Depending on the model of your dress and the location of the event you will attend, your combination preferences may change. For example, it is a better choice to use minimal jewelry with self-shining dark prom dresses. On the other hand, you can make your plain dresses more elegant with bright and big jewelry. We can also get help from some celebrities for the right accessory suggestions. For instance, Bella Hadid created a very unusual look with her black dress with this big and sparkly accessory she wore at the Cannes Film Festival. Similarly, one of her best friends Kendall Jenner combined her iconic little black dress with minimal earrings and got a fancy look at the Oscar Party!

Hairstyles for Black Dress
Although there are many kinds of hairstyles, I prefer smooth and natural hairstyles with black dresses, because I think the dresses are more remarkable that way. I believe that hairstyles made without much effort give a cool and casual look. The determining factor for the hairstyle you choose may be the neckline and decollete of the dress. While completing your neckless black prom dresses with a messy bun, you can choose straight hair in your low-cut dresses. This video may be helpful for these kinds of hair-styles. In addition, you can adapt to the floral hair-style fashion, which we have seen frequently in recent years, and you can decorate your hair with flowers of different colors and types.
