Fancy dresses, suits and ties, high heels and dress shoes. Prom Season is upon us, and it’s almost time to get all dolled up for the big day. But before you do, it’s important to keep some tips in mind:
- When picking out the proper heels, be sure to get a wider heel that is no more one to two inches in height.
- Wedges can be a good compromise between tall stiletto heels and flats.
- Make sure that the shoes you choose are comfortable, since you will be wearing them all night.
It can be tempting to join the trend of dancing barefoot or taking off painful heels at the end of the night, but doing this can be a bit risky. Things like foot fungus and warts are rampant after prom season because of the massive exposure on the dance floor. Since there will undoubtedly be ladies (and guys) who take off their shoes at prom, make sure to check your feet about one month after prom for unusual growths like warts. If you choose to avoid the barefoot route, bring an extra pair of flats or socks to change into so you can dance the night away pain free!
