Prom Pretty Means Pretty in Pink

Of all the colors you can choose to wear at prom, none are quite as prom perfect as pink. Pink is considered the most feminine color. It’s the color of fairy princesses and fairies. Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic tutu -- splashed on by street water from a passing bus, in the opening the TV classic, “Sex and the City”-- is pink. Eva Heller, in her Psychologie de la cuoleur—effets et symboliques, pink is imbued with emotion. Heller notes that pink is most associated with love, beauty, charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and the romantic. It’s further associated with eroticism and seduction when mixed with black or violet. The color pink was created in the late 17th century.

A pink dress seem to have a magical aura that makes a girl look feminine and pretty not only during prom, but also in almost any occasions. If a color could be assessed by age, pink is most associated with the young. A teenager attending prom is the very definition of youthful exuberance.

After prom, it won’t hurt to look ahead to next fall, the homecoming celebration and dance. You could consider altering your prom gown, or you can prepare (i.e. plan) for the second most festive high school event of the year.  As with most high-profile school events, it’s not uncommon for nerves to arise. You may worry about making a misstep, but fret not! Consider these homecoming survival tips.

If your school is like others across the country, homecoming isn’t just the final “home” football match and subsequent dance, it’s a series of activities celebrating school spirit and welcoming back alumni to school.
Homecoming represents a different season than Prom; the former, at the beginning of the new school year, and the latter, at the end. Autumn is cooler, breezier, it’s dark earlier; prom season signifies anticipation of summer, the weather’s warmer, the days grow longer.

·      Go because you want to go , not based on social pressures
·      Homecoming is a teenage or high school rite of passage, will you regret not going?
·      Find out whether the people attending are with or without dates and if it matters to you.
·      You have the possibilities of going with a friend, a group of friends or alone
·      Take a turn – look into the kind of music that will be played and if you’re comfortable dancing (and if you go, you should!)

No matter what the prom or homecoming theme is or where it’s held – in your school gym, a restaurant, a hotel reception room, a museum, an aquarium or another special venue -- when you attend the event wearing your lovely pink prom dress, in whatever style suits you best, you will feel like the prom or homecoming queen, whether you actually win… or not.
