Prom 2012 accessory picks

The dress is one thing – now you need to find the right accessories to enhance your look. To help you find what you’re looking for, we put together some of our favorite pieces we feel would be perfect for prom.
Crystal headband

Crystal headband

Add a little extra oomph to your updo with this pretty headband featuring tightly clustered crystals for subtle but eye-catching sparkle (nordstrom.com, $58). Whether you’re wearing something short and sassy or long and elegant, this hot hair accessory will instantly add some serious glamour to your prom night look.

Cluster ring

If you’re looking for that one, last standout piece to complete your prom ensemble, look no further than this statement cocktail ring with clusters of pink pearls, white pearls and crystals all on a rose gold plated ring (maxandchloe.com, $60). We love the whimsical yet stylish design and can’t resist the hints of girly pink.

Crystal-studded necklace

Talk about stand-out sparkle! This get-noticed necklace will add interest to any strapless or low V-neck gown (fantastyjewelrybox.com, $90). We think this flattering prom night accessory will look especially fabulous with dresses in a solid color.

Ruffle clutch

Ruffle clutch

Looking for the perfect prom night clutch? We suggest opting for this small statement handbag with all over ruffles and a jewel-encrusted clasp (dsw.com, $30). The cute clutch comes in three hues – black, green and bright pink (if you really want to make a statement) and it’s the perfect size for all your prom essentials.

Metallic cuff

Metallic cuff

A stylishly substantial cuff can make a great prom night accessory and we love this hammered concave cuff that comes in gold, rose gold and silver, depending on your dress or other accessories (nordstrom.com, $58). Metallic is a spring and summer must, so not only will your arm candy be on-trend, it will complement your dress perfectly.

Sparkle drop earrings

Sparkle drop earrings

Drop earrings not only add a touch of glamour to any look, they also lengthen your neck and look great with an updo. We’re partial to this pair with a hint of light pink sparkle (bananarepublic.com, $50). Whether your dress is basic black or vibrant green, these earrings will be an ideal accessory for your big night.

Watch: Prom for All!

The cost of going to prom can really add up... tickets, limo ride, flowers, and of course, the dress. Donate your gently worn formal dresses so that everyone can have an awesome prom. Hayden Panettiere is donating hers!
