3. Celeb Inspiration: Demi Lovato

 

Style: Black and white edgy jumpsuit

Why We <3 It: In our opinion, this is THE year of the jumpsuits. They look edgy, fierce, and totally sophisticated, and we think Demi totally nails this look. We think you'd look just as cool rocking something similar at prom, tbh. It's always better to stand out than blend in, amirite?

Get Demi's Look: We can't get over how similar this $59.99 Macy's jumpsuit is to Demi's. We're a little in love.

 

4. Celeb Inspiration: Taylor Swift

 

Style: Colorblock two-piece/gown

Why We <3 It: Let's be real, red and pink are individually great colors, but put them together, and magic happens ✨. This dress is simple enough that you can go wild with your hair and makeup choices, plus, who wouldn't want to look like Taylor Swift? Just sayin'.

Get Tay's Look: You'll be one step closer to looking like your fave celeb if you pick up this out-of-this-world colorful dress at Nordstrom for $298.00.

 

5. Celeb Inspo: Holland Roden 

 

Style: Electric blue two-piece/romper

Why We <3 It: We must have a thing for bold colors, because HELLO, blue. You won't even need accessories with an outfit like this, because it's so vibrant and fun all on it's own. Holland makes this outfit look just about as chic as chic can be, and we're feeling it.

Get Holland's Look: We've picked the perfect pleated chiffon jumpsuit for you to emulate Holland's completely sophisticated and edgy vibe. You can get it at Forever 21 for $68.00 ??.

 

6. Celeb Inspo: Kira Kosarin

 

Style: White sequin mini dress

Why We <3 It: There's something so simple about a plain white dress! It makes it super easy to pair it with shoes or accessories that have a pop of color. Hot pink pumps? Yes, please. The sequin pull everything together and make this outfit that much more glam.

Get Kira's Look: Another Nordstrom find! This sparkly wonder can be purchased for $178.00. We're sure you will wear this one over and over again!

 

7. Celeb Inspo: Anna Kendrick

 

Style: Sleek slitted black dress

Why We <3 It: It's basically a girl rule that you can never go wrong with a black dress. We're mildly obsessed with the glitter and the peek-a-boo slit on Anna's dress. It's honestly the perfect choice for the girl who can't decide between a long and short dress.

Get Anna's Look: You can pick up the sequin haltered gown similar to Anna's at Nordstrom for $129.00. Don't forget to grab some sparkly earrings while you're there ?
