Houston Style Magazine: What is new for prom season 2019?

Marisol Vecchini: Glitter and sequins are in full force at Macy’s this season, adding some glam to any look. Illusion dresses are also here to make a statement – these designs let girls show a little skin but still give off a sophisticated and glamorous vibe. The ball gown is a popular style we see year after year.

MV: They should make sure to bring a pair of heels and a variety of undergarments that will help them visualize the final look. Also, come with an open mind and be willing to try on all kinds of styles – you never know what might surprise you!
