If your prom dress is black...

Consider yourself lucky!  Black is always in style, and is by far the easiest color to accessorize, as any color goes nicely with it.  Bright, bold colors really stand out against black.  Incorporating black ribbons, wires, or rhinestones is a great way to tie the corsage in with a black prom dress.

Using ribbons in a variety of colors, patterns, or textures really enhances the look of a corsage.  In this wrist corsage, we've used a hot pink and black polka dot grosgrain ribbon, black picot ribbon, and a black sheer ribbon to accompany a single hot pink mini gerber daisy with black wire swirl in the center.  Additional swirls of black wire are used as an accent.

Black and red is always a striking color combination.  Also using a variety of ribbons and black wire accents, this wrist corsage of deep red mini carnations on a black beaded bracelet would be perfect for the girl who prefers darker tones.  A similar look could also be created using red spray roses.

And of course there is always the classic black and white.  In this wrist corsage, the crisp white of the dendrobium orchids contrasts nicely with the sheer black ribbon and black snap bracelet, and the black rhinestones add a touch of sparkle.

These are just a small sampling of the many, many options for accessorizing your black prom dress.  The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
