Get polished, primed and fully prepared for the biggest night of the year… school proms party, here we come!

It’s been a long time coming, but the end of school for many is now within touching distance… if it wasn’t for those exams to get through in between. But whoever let a few exams get in the way of planning a blow-out celebration?

Proms parties in the UK have never been so popular, creating memories to last a lifetime amongst your school friends, new and old. To help get you in the party spirit we’ve put together a few ideas so you’re fully prom prepared, with some great recommendations from stores across the town to ensure that your prom look all goes to plan.

So, the big question… what are you going to wear? Long, short, cocktail, formal? The choices can often seem a little overwhelming, your mum sheds a tear and says you look perfect in everything, and you don’t, god forbid, want to come face-to-face with someone else wearing the same dress as you! Cue the personal shopper – your no-nonsense approach to finding that perfect look.

Monsoon has an array of beautiful occasion wear to suit all shapes and sizes, and all budgets, plus their complimentary personal shopper will help you find the perfect prom look in no time.
Just head into the store or call to book your appointment.
