Next in our Prom inspiration series is the lovely, free-spirited Rapunzel.
Since Rapunzel’s radiant orchid is all the rage of late, it seemed like a natural fit to use her on-trend color for the dress. The dress by ModCloth has beautiful beading and hints of sparkle everywhere, that will reflect perfectly like Rapunzel’s lanterns at night. The floral embellished clutch by Ann Taylor is a nod to her floral braid and her love of nature. For a pop of color, the yellow and cream colored earrings from Forever21 are reminiscent of the kingdom’s sun symbol and Rapunzel’s golden hair.
The heels by Nina play off the beading of the dress and have a low enough heel that will be easy to dance and/or frolic in. A light pink nail fits with the accent colors of Rapunzel dress.
For hair, a piecey side braid is a modern way to emulate Rapunzel’s signature braid. To get the look, apply Bumble & Bumble Texture Hair Un Dressing Creme to wet hair and blow dry. Braid hair in a loose fish tail style and secure with a clear rubber band. Then, lightly pull pieces of hair out, to create a loose and effortless style. Use the flower clips from Accessorize on the side of the braid to complete your Rapunzel look.
