I remember way back how my school prom happened. It started with deciding who I'd be with (of course I was with close friends that night) and how to get to the venue. I knew I needed to prep myself for the event so I brushed up on skills about formal etiquette. I also prepared internally, you know having the right attitude so I would enjoy the night. Besides all these, I prepared a concept in mind on how I would want to appear at the prom.

Wedding and prom season are here, or close. Those are occasions that make us think in advance what to wear, what to do with our hair and makeup. When a formal event takes place in late Spring/ Summer you know it will be hot and you will melt if you don't make the right decisions. We don't have prom in Croatia. The only high school related formal event for which we dress up to look all fancy is a dinner after the last year which is usually in June. In this post I'll show you some dresses and talk a bit about hair and makeup.

Part 1: Dresses I'll show you two dark and two light coloured dresses in collaboration with Pickedlooks.

You can find them in their Ball Dresses 2017 section.

Long dresses are so elegant and you probably won't find yourself wearing them too much through life. So when you have the opportunity to wear one go for it. No matter your height or size you'll be able to find one that suits you. While going through Pickedlooks website these four different styles caught my attention.

Two piece dresses are such a thing now, there are even two piece wedding dresses. I don't know should we consider it as a skirt + top or a dress since you can wear it separately later (which is a big plus). This top has long sleeves but it's lace and transparent so it wouldn't make any problems during warm season and the bottom part has a high slit. Do I need to say anything about it? Just look how cool it looks. The other dress has a more classical feel to it. It's tighter in the waist, falls down beautifully and the top part has a discreet decolletage. Add some statement earrings or a discreet necklace and you have a classical romantic look.

Probably most of you think mermaid dresses suit more taller girls. But a friend of mine is a living proof that shorter girls can pull off a mermaid dress as good as anyone else. The dress accentuates all your beautiful curves in an elegant way.

And for the end this lovely flowy dress that looks like it belongs to a Disney Princess or some forest faerie. If we had prom I would definitely wear this one. I love everything about it. From the way it falls, the detail around waist, to the little dropping sleeves. Everything about this dress is enchanting.

You might get your hair professionally done but there will always be people who prefer doing their own. As a person with wavy messy hair whenever I wanna look neat and different I straighten my hair. Flat iron is my go to but it takes so much time and preparation. All that sectioning of hair, straightening a small parts at a time... haven't you wished there's a faster way? Well there is. I've recently come across hair brush straighteners but there are so many kinds for different hair types. So we wouldn't have to do all the research HotAirBrushReviews did it and made this easy infographic. They also have reviews of many other hairstyling tools so if you're planning to get some definitely check them out. After straightening your hair you can leave it like that, add some cute pin or head piece or you can make a braid from one section like in the photo. What I also like are little natural looking waves, nothing too exaggerated.

A cozy tunic is sure to be a key piece for fall. You can wear it with bare arms now and then use it as a layering piece later. This luxe knit is perfect with a cropped trouser and minimal accessories such as a thin, silk scarf tied at your wrist. A classic camel shift gets an update when layered with a pinstripe oxford and studded point-toe flats (a chic alternative to heels).

Like this red ensemble, can be simple when you purchase separates from the same brand to ensure the colors work. The longer silk scarf makes the outfit and looks classic yet modern knotted at the neckline. For late fall, simply add a navy or camel trench. Up your accessorizing game by swapping out classic bracelets or necklaces for silk scarves that both keep you warm and pack a style punch. Menswear is here to stay.

There is nothing more exciting than the lush textures, printed layers and rich colors of fall dressing. partnered with Halogen, available exclusively at nordstrom, and executive style correspondent dana avidan cohn to get schooled on the style staples that will keep you fashionable all season long. Read on to the end for three simple tips to update your fall wardrobe.

A black leather shift is essential for those chillier fall days. Wear now with bare legs and lace-ups and add tights when the temps drop. Add dimension by wearing a thin fitted t-neck underneath to create a sleeve and add a silk tie at the neck in a sophisticated print in lieu of jewelry. For accessories, I will pick those which has the same color palette as the dress because I don't want the look to lose focus. I know some of you might worry to wear a bodycon as it'll show your flaws.
