Earrings can do a lot to accentuate and frame your face well if you choose the length, size and design of your earrings according to your bone structure, face shape, hairstyle, dress design, and overall look.
If you have a round face, choosing dangling earrings are great because it`ll give your face an illusion of elongation. If you have square face shape, choose earrings with medium length and circular edges. If you have long and narrow face shape, studs, short dangles, and circular hoops types of earrings will complement your frame. If you have a heart face shape, dangling chandelier, and triangle shaped earrings will counterbalance your frame. If you have an oval-shaped face, you can wear almost any type of earrings.
You also need to take into consideration your bone structure. If you have very defined and small bone structure, you can choose small, simple, and delicate types of earrings because this will help accentuate your gentle and soft-looking features. If you have a big bone structure, you can choose medium to large earrings because these will help frame your face well.
The design of your dress is another factor to consider in choosing your earrings. If your dress doesn`t have much beads, bling, design and pattern, you can definitely choose earrings with a more elaborate design so your over-all look won`t seem very dull or plain. However, if your dress already have dominating bling and design, it`s better to choose simpler earrings to not make your over-all look too bold and overpowering.

During prom, you`ll usually be going around meeting people, talking to friends, and dancing. This is why wearing a pair of comfortable shoes is significant. Having comfortable shoes all night will aid you in making the most out of the event because you`re not thinking or worrying about the difficulties of walking and dancing.
There are many high-heeled shoes that are easy on the feet. Choose a pair of shoes with a heel height you`re at ease using for hours. If you`re not used to walking in heels, shoes with 2-2 1/2 inches heel height are not as difficult to use. Also, make sure that your footwear has enough allowance in size so that your feet won`t hurt when you use it. Don`t get a shoe size you normally would in flat shoes.
