Want to look Pretty in Pastel for Prom?: Faviana's Style Guide Pastel


Pastel is always a favorite, especially for springtime. If you love all things pastel, prom is the perfect springtime event to show off the color of your choice. Pastel dresses are simple, elegant, and not too flashy. You’re sure to feel like a princess on prom night with the perfect dress. Whether you want a lilac prom dress or a light blue prom dress, pastel won’t disappoint. 

There may be a lot of dresses to choose from, but it’s easy to find something amazing in Faviana’s selection of prom dresses. This guide will help you decide what color, style, and accessories to look pretty in pastel. 

Pick a Pastel

While pastel narrows down your color choices, there are still a lot to choose from. There’s pink, yellow, blue, and purple shades like lavender or lilac – just to name a few. Picking a color can be tough when there are so many pretty shades. Our advice is to go with a color that you love and that looks great with your skin tone. If you’re stuck, we listed suggestions for each skin tone. No matter what color you choose, we know it will look great!

If you have lighter skin tones, cool shades won’t blend too much into the skin and wash you out. Think baby blue or a purple prom dress like lilac. The Faviana Style 10648 is a beautiful fit and flare v-neck dress that comes in both pastel blue and purple. You can go for a bold makeup look to finish off the look.

For medium skin tones, pinks, yellows, and mint green pair well. Warm colors pair best with warm skin tones even in pastel. The Faviana Style S10633 is a beautiful dress with pastel pink and yellow options. It has applique details all over and an open back. 

Darker skin tones can absolutely rock pastel shades. Light yellow, aqua, lilac, or cream are great choices. The Faviana Style S10435 is a beautiful chiffon dress that comes in a light blue that is soft and elegant. Another great choice is a light periwinkle color with lavender undertones. 

Choose the right style

Once you have the perfect color (or you want to pick your style first), it’s time to find the right style for you. Many prom dresses are long but there’s nothing wrong with going for a short dress if that’s your style. 

V-neck dresses are popular and simple. There are also a lot of v-neck options. Some have lace appliques like the Faviana Style S10641. It comes in a light pastel blue. If you want something similar, the Faviana Style S10634 also features applique but has a scoop neckline. You can find it in pastel yellow, blue, or pink.

Lastly, you may want to try something a little different. This pastel cream dress has sequin flower detailing all over. The Faviana Style S10653 is one of our favorite choices to stand out for spring prom and still feel like a princess. 

Accessorize Your Look

When finishing up your pastel look, you want to have the best accents to complement your dress. Basics like black or white will always pair well. Think neutral shades when shopping for shoes. Pastel colors also go well with simple gold jewelry. You don’t have to overdo it. With pastel, keeping it clean and simple will make all the difference.
