Finding The Perfect Prom Dress This Season: What Your Prom Dress Color Says About You
Prom is one of the most exciting and memorable events of high school, and choosing the perfect prom dress is a big part of the experience. With so many colors, finding the perfect one for the perfect night can be overwhelming. You may ask questions such as, what vibe do I want to give off? Who am I trying to impress? What color compliments me best? The color of your dress and how you accessorize it plays a significant role in all of this and Faviana offers a wide variety of colors to choose from. Colors can be split into three categories – warm, cool, and neutral. Let’s take a look at the colors that fall into each and discuss what that says about the person who wears it.
Warm Colors – Red, Orange, Yellow
Warm colors, such as red, orange, and yellow, are known for evoking feelings of warmth, energy, and excitement. These colors are often associated with fire, sun, and heat.
Red is a bold and intense color that is often associated with passion, love, and excitement. It is a color that symbolizes confidence and strength, making it the perfect choice for a prom dress. When it comes to accessories, red prom dresses pair well with silver or gold jewelry. A pair of silver or gold earrings and a matching necklace will add some shine to your look. A pair of strappy silver or gold heels will also complement your dress perfectly. A prom dress like the Faviana Style S10508 in Red will certainly get you noticed and convey a confident, passionate and driven personality.
Orange prom dresses are a unique and bold choice for prom-goers looking to stand out from the crowd. Not only does the color orange represent confidence and creativity, but it also complements a variety of skin tones and hair colors. Accessorizing an orange prom dress is easy, as the color is versatile and pairs well with many other colors. Silver, gold, and black are all great options for jewelry, while neutral-colored heels will complete the look. Wearing a prom dress like the Faviana Style S10848 in Tangerine Orange shows you are creative, loving, and ready for a party!
Yellow is associated with happiness, optimism, and cheerfulness, making it a perfect choice for a special occasion such as prom. Accessorizing a yellow prom dress can be a lot of fun.

Cool Colors – Blue, Green, Purple
Cool colors, such as blue, green, and purple, have a calming and soothing effect on the human eye and mind and they’re often associated with nature, water, and relaxation.
Blue represents the sea, sky, and open spaces. Blue is a very versatile color and can range from the pale blue of a clear sky to the deep blue of the ocean. It is often associated with trust, loyalty, and wisdom. Opt for silver or white gold jewelry to complement the blue dress. A simple necklace or earrings can add just the right amount of sparkle without overwhelming the dress. Blue prom dresses pair well with silver, white or nude shoes. Avoid wearing black shoes as they can clash with the blue dress. A silver or white clutch will complement the dress and add a touch of elegance to the overall look.

Green represents nature, abundance, and wealth. It’s a popular choice among prom-goers looking for a unique and eye-catching look on their big night. This versatile color can range from a soft mint to a deep forest green, offering a wide range of options for any skin tone or personal style. The color green is associated with growth, renewal, and nature, making it a perfect choice for a spring or summer prom. For a more traditional and elegant look, try pairing your dress with gold or pearl jewelry and neutral-colored heels. For a more modern and edgy look, try pairing your dress with silver jewelry and bold, colorful heels. Wearing the Faviana Style S10805 dress in Dark Emerald tells others you are ready to move forward with a fresh start and want to feel grounded.
Purple is closely associated with royalty and riches, power and wealth. These dresses come in a variety of shades, from lavender to eggplant, and can be found in a range of styles to suit any taste. When it comes to accessories, silver or diamond jewelry can complement the color purple, while darker shades of purple can pair well with gold jewelry.

Black prom dresses are a timeless and elegant choice for prom night. The color black is associated with sophistication, elegance, and mystery, making it the perfect choice for this special occasion.
