WHAT TO WEAR TO A FIRE AND ICE THEMED PROM
We love a good prom theme. One of our favorites? Fire and ice themed proms. A fire and ice party is all about the dramatic juxtaposition of dark and light. It brings together vibrant reds and icy blues, silvers, and whites—creating a striking atmosphere perfect for prom night.
But what do you wear to a fire and ice themed prom? That’s a great question. Not to worry, we have answers right here. Whether you want to embrace your fiery or icy side, you have plenty of options—starting with these five prom dresses.
1. Red Dress with Silver Embellishments
Ready to unleash your fiery side? A flame-red dress is just the thing to wear to a fire and ice themed prom.
If you really want to embrace this prom theme, then look out for a red dress with silver embellishments. You may even be able to find one with embellishments that emulate flames. Va-va-voom!
For those who want to flaunt their figure, we recommend choosing a mermaid silhouette. It hugs your curves until the knees, and then flares out to accentuate the female figure. If the dress also has a high neckline, you’ll also elongate the body. You’ll look like a model on a runway!
Don’t forget to wear some sparkling accessories. Shoulder-grazing earrings would totally complement your dress’ silver embellishments.
2. Satin Red Dress with Rhinestone Bodice
If you want to rock a red dress to your fire and ice themed prom that’s not so bright, you can totally get away with a burgundy dress.
We recommend choosing a burgundy dress that’s made of satin fabric. The shine and luster of satin would be perfect for a dramatic prom theme like fire and ice.
But don’t stop there. Look for a bodice that has embellishments like beads and rhinestones. It’s your prom night after all!
With a long dress like this, show off your shoulders with spaghetti straps. It’ll create the perfect canvas for a necklace. Or, throw your hair up in a half-do, or updo, and wear some bold red earrings.
3. Frosty Blue Dress with Embroidery
Prefer to wear blue at your fire and ice themed prom? A frosty blue dress with embroidery will make you look like a snow queen!
This hue captures the icicles that will decorate your prom venue and the embroidery looks just like snowflakes! Your dress will take this prom theme to a whole new level.
When it comes to fabric, we love mesh for this dress—it will continue to add a whimsical feel to your look. You’ll be floating on the dance floor!
Silver accents are just the thing to complete your outfit. Add some sparkling silver jewelry and you’re set for your fire and ice themed prom.
4. Aqua Dress with Lamé Fabric
Another hue that totally embraces this fire and ice prom theme is aqua. It’s crisp vibrant color is reminiscent of crystal clear waters. In other words, it’s absolutely perfect for your fire and ice prom dress.
We particularly love this color in lamé fabric. Lamé is woven or knit with thin ribbons of metallic fiber, which creates a shimmery effect. For this prom theme, you want to look for ways to add “icy” elements to your dress—and this fabric will certainly do the trick!
Speaking of incorporating sparkle, an easy way to do so is by adding a silver beaded belt to your prom dress. A belt will also cinch your waist and emphasize an hourglass shape. (Yes, please!)
If you opt for a dress with off-the-shoulder sleeves, throw your hair up to show off your shoulders and collarbone. Keep it bare or add a necklace for some added glam.
5. White Dress with Iridescent Sequins
When it comes to a fire and ice themed prom, most will go for red or blue dresses. But don’t forget about white and silver gowns—these are also great hues for this prom theme!
Our personal fav? A prom dress decorated with iridescent white sequins. Iridescent is an adjective that means lustrous and pearly. It gives off a brilliant sheen that will make you stand out on prom night.
If you want to show off some skin, choose a V-neckline and add a high slit to the skirt. With your feet on display, don’t forget to find a pair of heels to match!
