The school prom has become an important rite of passage for school leavers all over the UK, with educational institutes going to a lot of expense and effort to mark the occasion. A prom is a glittering evening used as a way to say goodbye to older students before they head off to start the next chapter in their lives.
Some schools, colleges and universities have started to use the masquerade ball theme for their leave events, so we’ve created a quick guide to the best mask styles for school proms and leaving parties.
SIMPLE AND STRIKING
If you want to make an entrance with your prom ball mask, but aren’t a fan of too much colour or ornate detailing, then the Colombina Grezzo Colour Unisex Plain Mask is ideal as you can choose from an array of colours to suit your outfit.
Available as both stick and banded masks, this particular model could also be enhanced with a few DIY decorations at home and its pocket-friendly too, so its perfect for students who don’t have a lot of money to spend on their accessories.
If blush and pastel tones are more to your taste, then you can compliment your gown or prom dress with the beautiful Baby Armony Gold, a small feathered mask with an ornate combination of sparkle and feather detail that works well with paler tones and bold colours due to the wide range of colour options available.
This particular mask is so wonderfully decorative thanks to its scalloped cheeks, and pretty heart-shaped upper edge, so it’s a must for ladies that want to go all out at their prom or leaving party masquerade ball.
If you’ve never had the opportunity to wear a mask to this sort of occasion before and worry that you might find the experience a little uncomfortable, then the Occhialino Budget Half Face Filigree Phantom Mask offers the perfect solution to your prom attire.
Lightweight and comfortable to wear, this particular type of mask is incredibly lightweight and only covers a small proportion of the face. What it lacks in weight it more than makes us up for in style though with intricate detailing in filigree metal that can be powder coated in blue, black, silver, gold or white to match your eye-catching outfit.
