DIY: Cheap Prom Outfit Ideas for Girls

by Christine Lim, Staff Writer

If you are still unsure of what you’re wearing to Prom, you are in the right place. If you already know what you’re wearing, you can still use these tips for next year’s Coro and Prom! I’m a person who loves fashion but also frugal. Those two characteristics of mine have given me the ability to create fashionable outfits cheaply. Fun fact: I’ve never worn a dress to a high school dance. I’ll tell you how I did that in this article.

First, you have to buy your Prom ticket. Then, you have to worry about corsages and boutonnieres. Then, you have to worry about transportation. That’s so much money you have to spend for just one night. Follow these tips to save some money on your outfit!

1) Have fashion basics.

a) Nude pumps will take you anywhere. You can wear nude pumps basically with anything, anytime. You’ll be able to use them for prom and a bunch of other events!

b) And I’m pretty sure that you already have make up.

2) Invest in a nice blouse or crop too.

You can tuck a blouse or wear a crop top with a skirt to imitate the top of a dress. You can choose a top with embellishments or lace to dress up the look.

3) Invest in a nice skirt (short or long).

Buy or look for a skirt, short or long, depending on what you want. The good thing about have a two piece outfit is that you can separate those two pieces and mix and match them with other pieces for other events. You will be able to experiment with different styles and colors.


4) Look through the jewelry that you already have.

See if you have any accessories that compliment your outfit before going out and buying.


5) Borrow stuff.

If you don’t any items that you want, or if you don’t want to spend money, then borrowing will be the best option. Surely a friend or relative will be willing to lend you some items. Just make sure to return them!
