Besides graduation, prom is the last gathering with all of your classmates, before you set foot into the big ol' world of college & full-time jobs. It's important to choose a fun & fancy prom theme that will bring a memorable twist to the party!

Top 5 Popular Themes for Prom Ideas

  • Egyptian

Egyptian Themed Prom

Elegance meets glamour at the Egyptian themed prom! You’ll want an off-shoulder or strapless flowy long dress, adorned with crystals, gems & stone accents. Summon your inner Cleopatra, with winged liquid eye liner & neutral lipstick to finish the Egyptian look.

Mardi Gras Themed Prom

Party like there’s no tomorrow at your Mardi Gras themed prom! This look calls for a fun, flirty dress that’s shorter in length, in bright colors. Since your dress will be the main focus, go with more subtle makeup. A colored liner, paired with taupe nude eye shadow & high gloss lips will compliment this playful look.

Haunted Themed Prom

Wildly wicked, the Haunted Prom will feature spooky & Gothic style décor. Just remember, it’s not Halloween! You want your look to be mysterious, with a sexy edge. Try an all white flowy dress, with light makeup & smoky eyes. Or, show your dark side with a slinky black dress, smoky eyes & vampy lips.

Rockin’ Country Themed Prom

Go Rockabilly! If your school selects a rockin country theme, this is your chance to go pin-up style. Thick winged liner, a perfectly matte face & cherry red lipstick will look hot with whatever retro-style dress you choose. For the most authentic look, go for a short dress with a sweetheart neckline & flair skirt.
