PROM GUIDE: It’s all about the accessories

Have your say

Prom is just around the corner and you’ve probably been in just about every dress shop in the North East and scrolled through every corner of the internet looking for the perfect prom dress, right?

Rewind back to my school prom in July 2010. Blood, sweat and tears were shed in the months leading up to the all-important day. Not only was there the stress over finding the perfect dress, but the perfect accessories too.

After months of hunting, I finally settled on the fairest matching clutch bag and heels in all the land. They were both from Irregular Choice and were white with red hearts all over. The clutch bag had flecks of gold glitter running through the fabric and was lined with orange faux fur inside, while the shoes had a giant red bow on the back. They were the coolest bag and shoes I had ever owned, and both stood out like (extremely pretty) sore thumbs among the mixed crowd of diamante, satin and plain Jane accessories at prom.

So, to help you on your own hunt for the perfect prom accessories, we’ve gathered all the quirkiest clutch bags and heels from across the web.
