The style of the masquerade dress holds the key. It is important for you to determine whether you want to go for an 80s prom dress or stick to a contemporary masquerade dress.
Once you have settled on what you are going to wear, it is important that you determine certain essentials.
An ideal masquerade dress would be a long dress with a huge flair waist down. However, wearing only such a dress is not mandatory, you can opt for anything from a knee-length dress, and an A-line short dress, to a free-flowing elegant prom dress. Just plan well before the day of the event.


The pattern and design of the masquerade dress that you choose should be unique and stunning. Among fabrics, you can try silk, satin or tulle and design your own prom dress too. Make sure the dress you wear makes you look gorgeous and comfortable.
Though it is a prom night and everyone will be wearing masks, do not attempt anything extraordinary, which may have you stand out of the crowd for the wrong reasons. Always refer to the dress code that has been mentioned on the masquerade invitation and follow the same, while trying to fit in yet stand out.


Cocktail dresses with free-flowing fabrics and attractive masks are the best choices for you when it comes to a masquerade dress for promenades as well as a masquerade ball. It is important to choose a perfect color for the evening.
