PROM SEASON IS APPROACHING

jones+jones TOP 20 TIPS FOR PROM

As prom season is fast approaching we thought we would help you out with a Top 20 guide to prom!

1- Start dress shopping at least 2 months in advance!- although 2 months is very far off from the day itself, prom dresses need to be perfect which means its a very hard decision and will usually cause panic!- if any doubts, don’t get it!

2- Make appointments as soon as you know the date of your prom!- slots will get filled up very quickly around this season! so make sure you book our, tan, hair, nails and facial months in advance- if you are getting your dress tailored, DO IT NOW!

3- Make a list of everything you are going to need to by for prom and all appointments so you don’t forget something last minute!

4- Make sure you have a hot date for prom to show off to your friends!

5- Book a killer limo- so that you and your friends stand out of the crowd!

6- Do your research- browse magazines and blogs to create a mood board of what style hair and makeup you want for the  big day!

7- Buy your ticket ASAP- Tickets will sell out, you don’t want to be the only one missing out, so smash your money bank and be the first to purchase a ticket!

8-Try and get your date to match IE. your dress matches his tie!

9- Confirm all appointments- to make sure salons have not double booked and you still have your slot!

10- Make sure everything is perfect a week in advance- so if there is any last minute alterations to be done, you have a week to do so- stress free!

11- Pack your bag the night before so you don’t forget anything IE- ticket, phone , purse!

12- Wake up at 9:30 AM the day of prom so you don’t over lay and are fully prepared for the evening to come!

13- Eat an apple or breakfast- they wake you up and help you feel energized!

14- Take a bath to help you relax!

15- ensure that both toe nails and finger nails are polished- unpolished nails can look scruffy!

16- Dont forget to wear deodorant- with all that dancing you are likely to get sweaty!

17-Document it- Take selfies throughout the night and even get your parents to take a few snaps of your date and friends- you will be able to look back on the night!

18- Host or attend a crazy after party to celebrate your hard work!

19-  Get your friend to stay over so you can discuss the event the next morning!

20- Have an amazing time!

WE LOVE PROM!

Beyoncé’s band wearing jones + jones!

jones + jones Facebook fans will recall that back in July we were very excited to find out that Tina Knowles had purchased five of our dresses and just as we’d given up hope of spotting them, lo and behold last night Beyoncé’s band were wearing them on ITV!

Last night ‘A Night With Beyoncé’ aired on ITV and we absolutely loved the show, with the fabulous lady herself alongside her very talented band giving amazing performances of her best selling hits!

So far we’ve managed to spot three jones + jones dresses in two different styles on the show!

Firstly the stunning jones + jones Sadie Dress in white on the Cellist…

and the guitarist!…

 

With it’s deep ‘V’, flounce trimmed neckline, flirty full skirt and sheer billowing sleeves, this is definitely a statement dress!…

Meanwhile the Violinist wore the gorgeous jones + jones Pleated Lace Vivienne Dress in cream!

Floral lace, a prim high neckline with a deep ‘V’ cut at the back and net-trimmed petticoat underneath the full pleated skirt, this dress is ultra-feminine with a seductive twist!

From the edgy styling to the note-perfect renditions to Beyoncé’s great sense of humour, we loved every second of the show!

The bright white deep ‘V’ neckline, accented with flowing ruffles lead the eyes down to a full and floaty pleated skirt with a net trimmed petticoat guaranteeing that your feminine curves can’t be missed. Billowing sheer pleated sleeves ensure that not too much skin is on show, allowing this dress to go from day-to-night with a change of top. Add a bandeau or vest in the day but at night be daring like Dolce and Gabbana (above) and wear a bra, bikini top or bralet for a night of cocktails!
