How to wear a prom dress that's pretty as a peacock

Prom

Wondering what to wear to prom this year? We asked Kelly Edwards, store manager at Unique Vintage in Burbank, to help us put together a look with one of this year's hottest trends -- the peacock embellishment.

To get the peacock look, try the 2012 Nina Canacci Peacock blue strapless sweetheart embroidered A-line dress, $318 at UniqueVintage.com. Accessorize with the silver pear shape drop earrings, $30, and the silver glitter mesh evening handbag, $48, both from UniqueVintage.com.

"I would say definitely minimal jewelry this year," suggests Edwards. "A lot of girls just want a simple necklace or drop earring or fun ring because there is so much going on in the dresses already. I definitely would recommend simple earring and a clutch."
