Prom DOs and DON'Ts

Prom DOs and DON'Ts

Prom season is officially here, and there is SO much to do! Between finding a dress, to getting the accessories and shoes to match your dress, and perfecting your hair and makeup, it’s easy to get caught up in the stress of the season and forget to have fun. Luckily for you, Ypisilon has made this handy guide so that you don’t make some of the most common prom mistakes. We’ll help you look amazing and keep calm on your way to prom!


1.     Find an amazing dress at Ypsilon. It is also a very good idea to buy your dress in advance– things could go wrong or you could need alterations that may take a few weeks. The sooner you have your dress, the better. You’ll also have more time to find the perfect shoes and accessories to complete your ensemble.

2.     Have fun with your look. When else are you going to be able to go all out like this? Find an amazing hairstyle and makeup look that will compliment your dress, your face shape, and skin tone. This is the time go full glam!

3.     Rehearse your look in advance. Practice the hairstyle and makeup you’ve chosen to see if they look good with your dress and accessories. You don’t want to wait until the day of prom to find out that you hate your hair in a side braid, or that the red lip you chose is actually way too orange.

4.     Be a good date. Whether you are in a relationship, or going with a friend, be sure to be a good date and make sure that your date knows you appreciate them. They were probably stressed about this night just like you, so try to ease their nerves and just have fun. Don’t spend too much time on your phone, and don’t ignore your date while talking to your friends. Make sure they feel included and wanted.

5.     Take a ton of pictures. They night will eventually end, but you’ll have the memories forever. Be sure you document as much as you can; your future self will thank you. Take pictures and videos, and maybe even try some silly Snapchat filters. Take pictures of yourself, your date, your friends, your dress, and everything else. But when the time comes, put the phone down and remember to live in the moment.

6.     Have gum and touch up makeup. Bring a small bag of essentials with you for touch-ups and emergencies. You never know when your lipstick will smear, or if your salad will have onions. Better safe than sorry!


1.     Don't forget to break in your shoes. No one wants to have their night end in sore feet and blisters. Be sure to decide on your shoes at least a week in advance to make sure that you can walk in them, and that they don’t completely destroy your feet. Wear them around the house a few hours a day before the big night. Your feet will thank you!

2.      Don't order a dress online from a sketchy website. It may not come in time, it might not fit properly, it might not be what you expected, or they could send you the wrong dress. There are too many factors that could make this situation end in tears, so it’s better to pick a dress in a store that you can see and try on. Don’t leave this one up to fate!

3.    Don't get a spray-tan the hour before. Spray-tans take at least eight hours to fully develop, and could potentially result in Cheeto-colored skin. If you are getting a spray-tan, do it the day before. This gives the tan time to develop and set into your skin. Make sure you go to a tanning salon that uses high-quality pigments and get the color that is right for you. If you are very fair skinned, don’t go straight for the dark bronze; try to stay closer to your natural skin color with a healthy, sun-kissed glow.

4.     Don't be on your phone the whole night. Be aware and live in the moment. Not only is it rude to be on your phone the whole time in front of your date and your friends, but if you are staring at your phone, you are missing the night that you want to remember. Twitter will still be there when prom ends, and the world won’t fall apart if you put your phone down for an hour or two. Have fun and enjoy this night while it lasts!

5.     Don't freak out. This night is important, but it’s nothing to stress yourself out over. Do as much prep-work in advance so that the day of prom you are not scrambling to get everything done last minute. Make your hair and makeup appointments early so that you can for sure get into the salon. This will be a night to remember, and you don’t want to remember being a ball of stress. Take a deep breath, get a manicure, and remember to let yourself have fun.

Finding your fit

Finding your fit

The first step in finding your perfect dress is finding your perfect fit. Find a shape that flatters your body, accentuates and highlights the best parts of you. Ypsilon has a huge variety of shapes and fits, making it easy for everyone to find the one that’s right for them.

Finding a dress for your special occasion can be an overwhelming process. There are so many styles, colors, prints, looks, and fits to choose from. If you’ve been looking at photos on the internet, you may come into Ypsilon with an idea of what you are looking for. However, you may not love the style you chose from the photos in real life or on your body type. Shopping online versus in a store can completely change your opinion of a dress, and that’s why it’s important to come in and try things on before making such an important decision.


Flowy is one of the most universally flattering shapes. Featuring a fitted bodice and a loose, often layered skirt, flowy dresses hug the upper body and fall away from the hips. This draws attention to the smallest part of the waist, and makes the legs look miles long. The fullness of the skirt will vary by dress, but usually flowy dresses will have 1 to 3 layers of a light fabric such as chiffon or organza.


Fitted dresses hug the body all the way down. This shape is great because it shows off your shape, and looks very classic and elegant. Most fitted dresses are made out of a jersey fabric that moves with you and is very comfortable to wear for long periods of time.



Ball gown is the classic princess shape that you see in so many fairytales. Traditionally, ball gowns are fitted through the bodice and have a very full skirt. Because of the fullness of the skirt, this shape will draw the most attention to the waistline. This shape can be gorgeous and classic, although may sometimes overwhelm those with a smaller frame.



Mermaid dresses get their name from the shape of a mermaid’s tale; fitted through the hip and thigh, then flaring out at the bottom. This shape gives a long, lean look, but the flair at the bottom creates that element of fun and lightheartedness. Drawing attention the waist and hips, mermaid styles can be very flattering, and give a great silhouette.  

What to Expect in Your Ypsilon Appointment

What to Expect in Your Ypsilon Appointment

You’ve made your appointment. You’re ready to find the dress of your dreams. You could not be more excited. But if you’ve never been into Ypsilon before, the process can be a little confusing. This is not your average dress shopping experience. This is Ypsilon.


Upon entering the store, you’re greeted by gorgeous chandeliers, pictures of beautiful dresses, and lots of mirrors. It’s a lot to take in. Once you and your entourage have been seated, a Dress Specialist will come out and talk to you about what you are looking for. She will ask about what your dress event’s dress code, your budget, and will measure you to find your size. She then leaves to pulls you a variety of dresses, and puts them in your fitting room. This is when the fun begins.


Once you are in your first dress, open your fitting room curtain and ask your Dress Specialist to zip the dress up. Then you get to show off the dresses to your family and friends, and you become the star of your own fashion show.


One of the most important things you can do in your appointment is trust in your dress specialist. She knows what she is doing, and she is listening to your thoughts and concerns during your appointment. If she pulls a style that you may not like on the hanger, remember that there is a reason that she pulled this dress. She could have wanted you to see how you liked the fit or the color so that she can move closer to finding the perfect dress for you. Don’t get discouraged if you try on a few dresses in a row that just don’t wow you; remember that not all of them will. The more dresses you try on, the more your dress specialist will learn about you, your style, and your likes and dislikes. This process works, and your dress specialist will find your perfect dress for you if you give her the chance.


After you’ve tried on enough dresses, it’s time to narrow down the favorites. This is by far the hardest part of the appointment, and it can be a tough decision. With the support of your family and friends, and the advice of your Dress Specialist, you’ll be sure to leave with the right dress for you. Accessorizing each dress with jewelry and shoes can sometimes make the decision a bit easier. Have fun with accessories, they can really make or break a dress!


Ypsilon appointments are so much fun, and they are all about you and finding your dress. The one-on-one experience with each client and Dress Specialist far surpasses that of everyday department store shopping. Your perfect dress is here; make your appointment to come and find it.

Rocking the 2017 Trends

Rocking the 2017 Trends

From big, bright floral, to subtle paisley and delicate embroidery, this prom season it’s all about prints and patterns. Ypsilson has a huge selection of styles and prints from tons of designers that are sure to please even the pickiest of shoppers.


The possibilities are endless in a printed dress. Featuring vibrant colors and patterns, printed dresses are easily the most fun to accessorize. You’re sure to stand out in the crowd and will definitely be remembered in a pattern fit for a prom queen.


Embroidery has been a huge trend in Boho fashion, and is making it’s way into the formal wear scene. Embroidered dresses have all the fun and excitement of a print, but have a much more laid back vibe. 

Floral Detailing

Floral detailing can really make a dress pop. Raised 3D flowers and appliques add an element of interest and excitement to an otherwise simple dress. Charlie Heaton, actress from Stranger Things rocked a stunning red dress with a raised floral neckline at this weekend’s SAG Awards. Sherri Hill’s 2017 prom collection has tons of dresses with this type of detailing, and we simply cannot get enough.


Jacquard is a type of fabric with a raised pattern on it instead of a print. This look is as fun and exciting as a regular print, but is more subdued and elegant. It has all of the great qualities of a print without being too wild. This look is perfect to the Blair Waldorf type of girl, sophisticated and classy, yet fun and youthful. 

Sherri Hill + Ypsilon + You = #PromGoals​
