Prom Dress Shopping? Look to Your Sun Sign!

Astrology tips can make you pretty for prom

It's time to get pretty in pink! Prom season is officially underway, but before you go shopping for the perfect prom dress, you'll want to check out the best prom dress styles and colors for each horoscope sign. How do you decide whether to go long or short, frilly or sophisticated, black or color-drenched? Look to your Sun sign! Here's our Astrology advice for finding the ultimate prom gown for a glam night out with friends: 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

No doubt about it: red is your color. That's because you're ruled by the fiery planet Mars. Aries is also known as being the opposite of demure -- so don't be afraid to show a little shoulder, back ... even a flash of belly! Go with either a "peek-a-boo" gown in your signature color, or consider a short, strapless gown. Whatever you choose, make sure it isn't too form-fitting -- yours is the sign of constant movement, and you need to have freedom on the dance floor!

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Bulls can get glamorous with the best of them, but there are a couple things you need to keep in mind: comfort and quality. Go for a solid style that won't have you adjusting your hemline all night, and make sure the fabric feels good against your skin. Consider a strapless gown that's floor-length and free-flowing in a stretchy fabric. If you feel comfortable, you'll look radiant!

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

As the sign of the Twins, you probably like a mix of feminine and masculine styles, so avoid "pageant-style" gowns or anything that cramps your style. Avoid straps and layers and go for a simple shift gown -- nothing with a tight cut. And don't go too princess-style either: if you're not on the dance floor, you'll be moving around among your many friends, and a poofy skirt will only get in your way! Shoe-wise, think about flats (or flip flops for later in the evening!).

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

There are a lot of cute trends this season, but your sign rules history and memory. Find an updated version of a vintage style: a short, chic take on a taffeta 1950s prom dress, for example. If you're feeling daring, pay homage to Hollywood history by going Marilyn Monroe-style with a plunging neckline halter dress and wispy skirt!

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

As the proud Lion of the zodiac, you crave the spotlight. You'll want to opt for something eye-catching -- and maybe even a little scandalous! Go for a halter "peek-a-boo" dress with cut-out sides to make sure you grab everyone's attention. Want to be a bit more modest? Choose a floor-length dress with a slit up the front and a shorter skirt underneath. And make sure there's plenty of sparkle!

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are practical and streamlined ... but that doesn't mean they can't be cute or downright elegant on prom night! You won't feel at home in a dress that makes you feel like a wedding cake, but simple can be sexy! An earth-tone dress with a "bateau"-style neck, cowled from shoulder to shoulder, is perfect for you. Length is up to you, but whatever you wear should allow for a lot of movement, because you're sure to be helping your less-than-level-headed friends get ready for their big night!
