This exciting event starts with a 'promposal' and then the search for the perfect prom dress. However, when prom season arrives, shopping for prom dresses can get frustrating if one does not know what she wants.

If you have problems choosing your prom dress, well don't worry because here are some important tips to help you get your dream prom dress 2022 and be the belle of the ball.

Matching the dress to your face shape

In order to ensure the ideal look and fit, one of the ways is to try and match the dress to your face shape.  This will make the task of choosing a dress easier.  By finding out what your face shape is will help you to match it to the ideal dress that flatters and accentuates all of your good features while hiding whatever you might consider a flaw. When your face shape and your neckline match correctly, you will be able to narrow down your choices of dresses.

Firstly, take a look at your face in the mirror to decide which shape your face is. Each face shape has a certain or a few types of necklines that will enhance the shape of your face.

Round face

For a round face, you would need a dress with a neckline that elongates or stretches your face. Some good options would be V-neck, sweetheart or scoop neckline. Do avoid high neck dresses or big statement necklace as they tend to hide the neck and therefore make your face looks even rounder.
