For Girls: How to Dress Like a Fashion Blogger

Be comfortable. That might sound boring, but go for what you feel comfortable and beautiful in. If you feel it, you are it! That's a good slogan.

Embrace denim as a wardrobe staple. Seek new cuts to update each season: They can be slouchy, cropped, or wide. You'll always want a new pair.

"When I don't know what to wear, I always go all black, so maybe that's why I'm dressed in black pretty often." Elin Kling in her capsule collection collection for Guess by Marciano.

How to Keep Prom Costs Under Control

Since teenagers have more important worries,from prom dresses and tuxedos to flowers, photos and limo services to finding the perfect date, coming up with the cash should be the least of their concerns. With a touch of savvy planning, students can find smart ways to keep prom costs under control.

1. Most limos have four-hour minimums and require tipping, which could result in a bill of $400 or more. Divided among several friends, the cost can be affordable. However, party buses that hold more people than limos are a fun and more affordable option, so search around for prices and negotiate among several companies. Also, consider the possibility of borrowing a nice car from a parent or relative.

2. Share camera duties with friends for an honest record of the evening. Photo prints at CVS or Snapfish cost as little as $0.15 per picture and offer the option to create digital photo albums for a more memorable and less expensive keepsake.

3. Every teenage girl wants to look like a princess at prom, but blowing your budget on a formal prom gown she will wear only once isn't a smart purchase. Consider a simple cocktail dress that will serve double duty for post-prom celebrations, like college formals and weddings. Don't forget to compare prices online and search for dresses and women's shoe coupons to score even better deals.

4. Dig through grandma's or mom's jewelry box to find retro costume jewelry or a vintage clutch to pair with your dress. You could also ask your sister, cousin or friends if you can borrow a fabulous pair of earrings or necklace for the special evening.

What Is Junior Prom?

If your school has a separate junior prom, it can be a lot of fun to just get together with your friends and have a fun night out. Senior prom may be open only graduating seniors and their guests, and junior prom may be for underclassmen. Going to junior prom can be a lot of fun for teens who have reached the end of their junior year of high school. It is a great excuse to dress up, get together with friends you may not see often enough.

Like the senior prom, the junior prom is all about formal attire. Typically, girls dress up in fancy prom dresses, and guys wear suits or tuxedos. Probably the most nerve-wracking thing about junior prom, or any other school dance for that matter, is finding a date. Lots of teens attend with a group of guy and gal friends, where there are multiple unattached people. This way, everyone gets to enjoy the fun of the prom without the pressure of having to find a date.

Junior prom is a lot of fun and will give you a night full of memories to last the rest of your life. Before the prom, girls might want to go out and get hair and makeup done together or head to one friend's house where there are lots of mirrors and everyone can get ready as a group. For those guys who are dating someone at prom time, this can be a good opportunity to go out to a fancy or romantic restaurant and have a slightly more grown-up date than you're probably used to. It's a good idea to decide beforehand what you want to do after prom. This is especially important if you're dating someone and you're feeling that prom night peer pressure to take your relationship further than you might be comfortable with.

Party Dresses Trend: Sparkles and Sequins

Silver Sequin Blazer

Layering with a silvery jacket is a great option when you're headed out for the evening and want to stay warm. So how do you wear a sequin blazer without looking like a magician? Easy. Don't wear a top hat. But seriously, pair your sequined blazer with toned-down basics like a white tee, skinny jeans, and black pumps.

Denim Layers

Mix up your sparkly outfit by pairing two opposite materials -- like denim and sequins. It might seem odd to match these two at first, but the dressy/casual combo will break up any sparkle overkill. Plus, this look works just as well for brunch as it does for dinner.

Sequin Mini Dress

It's hard to feel anything less than fabulous in a gold sequin mini dress. Avoid going into sequin overload by pairing with neutral heels and minimal accessories. If your sequin dress has a shorter hemline, aim for a higher neckline, and show some skin with a low, sexy back.

Holiday Parties Beauty Looks to Try

Once you've found an awesome prom dress (or two!), it's on to hair and makeup.

Short hair? No problem! Kiernan's shoulder-length locks make a party-ready updo even easier, since there's not as much hair to pile onto your head and shorter layers make for instant, face-framing whisps!

Bella looks pretty and relaxed in her easy side braid! Use a festive elastic to make your plait stand out and if you're feeling really daring, try a fancy fishtail or five strand braid!

Just because the weather is colder doesn't mean you have to leave all pretty, light makeup behind! For girls with golden skin, like Zendaya, a pastel-pink shadow with dark rose lips completely brightens your complexion.

For a holiday dinner with the fam, opt for minimal makeup and a simple, fuss-free 'do. We love Ashley's half-up waves, and the touch of glitter on her eyelids is festive, without sending us into sparkle-shock.

Take a break from letting your hair down and switch things up with an edgy, high bun instead! Kendall's was one of our favorite, simple, chic hairstyles this year—why not rock it into 2013?

How to Plan a Successful Prom

Planning a prom? First, you'll need a group of people you work with, along with the assistance of teachers and other school officials who can offer 'been there' advice to help along the way.

Choose a Location

Find a venue and book it, sometimes as far as a year in advance. Bring a checklist with you to determine the following: How is the venue's sound capability? Can it handle a large band? Is there adequate parking? Are food, decorations and security included? Be sure to get a specific price quote. Some sites will include security, but in most cases you must provide your own.

Entertainment - Very Important!

If you decide on choosing a band, consider at least three. Try and listen to them in person.You can talk to last year's committee and see if they have any suggestions. Choose a versatile band that can play several styles of music. If you decide on using a DJ, confirm what type of sound and lighting equipment is included in the price quote.


The decor choices you make have only one major limiting factor: finances. If your budget allows you to create a virtual movie studio, then by all means go for it. If your budget is more limited, then you must figure out what part of your budget you can spend on decorations and make sure you do not exceed this amount.


Some sites chosen for prom will include security, but in most cases you must provide your own. You could hire a security company or off-duty police officers. Check with the local school board and police officials for guidance in this area.

Order invitations, tickets and any extras such as programs about three months before the prom. To cut costs, make your own invitations (for online sources, type "invitation kits" into a search engine) and tickets. Mail invitations and start selling tickets six weeks in advance.

One to three months in advance: Start looking at fashion magazines and stores for the look you want. Begin shopping for your prom dress, shoes, and purse. Once you have chosen your dress, be sure to schedule any necessary alterations.
