All women want to look special and unique — especially when it comes to special occasions like prom. There’s no better way to achieve that special and unique look than with vintage.
You can look for a complete vintage formal look with vintage formal wear. This vintage Montgomery Ward formal dress with jacket appeals to me because it has plenty of that American Victorian Prairie that was so popular in the 1970s and early 1980s (typified by Gunne Sax).
If you’ve found a prom dress you like, vintage or contemporary, a vintage bed jacket worn over it is a great way to make your prom ensemble unique. This one is very romantic with those large rose appliques — and it would be great over a vintage slip, for prom or any night out, really.

Once you find the special dress, don’t forget to look for vintage jewelry!
