Flint, MI (PressExposure) April 02, 2008 -- Prom dress, check - shoes, check - hair appointment, check - but, what about earrings, bracelets, and maybe a necklace?
Attending the prom is possibly the most exciting event for any teenage girl, besides her wedding day. One would think that the dress is the most important part of the outfit, right? Even though the gown is critical, the accessories really complete the look and are equally important, according to Flint-area lia sophia Advisor Lisa Young. "It is, actually, quite amazing what a difference accessories can make to one's overall look. Whether it is jewelry or that special purse - accessories definitely add that 'pizzazz' we all look for when dressing up, especially at such a formal event like the prom," Young said. "As prom season arrives, we want to show teenagers in the Flint community how they can make their appearance perfect for prom night!"
A New York Times article recently sited a survey from Your Prom magazine, which found that the average student spends an estimated $638 on the prom, a $4 billion industry. In addition, 74 percent of girls end up spending a good portion of their money on beauty products like artificial nails and lip gloss during prom season.
"As the special event becomes a more popular event, students will probably spend even more than that," Young said, adding that accessories will become increasingly important.
"Whether it is a little bit of sparkle and shine, or a bold color to bring out the tone in the dress a girl wears, jewelry is essential because it makes you have that ultimate edge over others," says Young. "Wearing a necklace can enhance your neckline and a bracelet can bring attention to your freshly manicured nails. Even the right earrings can be the perfect finishing touch with your hairstyle - you just can't lose!"
lia sophia is a fashion jewelry company that offers a wide array of selections through in-home demonstrations. According to Young, lia sophia is committed to connect women to their dreams, from obtaining trendy jewelry to offering Advisors, like Young, Hostesses and customers an extensive line of high quality products and an unparalleled opportunity to own their own business.
Young said the important thing teenagers should remember for the prom is to have a fun, safe night.
"The prom is a memorable time for any teenager, and it should be a fashion fabulous night for them, as well," Young added.
