It’s officially prom season, one of the most exciting times of the year for many high schoolers. Whether you’re an underclassman attending your first prom event or a senior spending one last night with your friends before graduation, prom is a rite of passage for so many students. Something that’s almost more exciting than the dance itself, though, is putting together the perfect outfit. 

Weeks of dress shopping, bookmarking hairstyles on Pinterest, and nail appointments all come together to create your unique prom look. And what better way to share that look with your friends than by using a TikTok transition? If you’re looking for inspiration, here are some creative transitions prom attendees have created on the app so far.

“Don’t Blame Me” by Taylor Swift

The song “Don’t Blame Me” by Taylor Swift has been used in all kinds of TikTok transitions lately, and prom transitions are no exception. In this TikTok, Hannah Grau and her prom date use the last line of the bridge to reveal their prom outfits. To recreate this idea, dance while the bridge is finishing, then do a fun dip move with your partner as the chorus begins.

“Love Me Like You” by Little Mix

“Love Me Like You” is another sound where you can do a perfect dip to show off your prom look. Ella Brooke and her prom date use this transition flawlessly, going from T-shirts and socks to their full prom look right as the lyric “last night I laid in bed so blue” starts.

“DM Pretty” By tank and The Bangas

You’ve probably seen TikTokers using this viral TikTok sound from Tank and The Bangas, which works perfectly as a prom transition. Bailey Dedrick uses the first part of this sound while she’s in her normal, everyday clothes, then transitions to her prom dress right after the line, “I wonder if he knows…” Then, when the song continues, you have the perfect opportunity to sing along and show off your look.

“Telephone” by lady gaga

Finally, this classic Lady Gaga song is another perfect sound to use to reveal your perfect prom outfit. Using your hand or another object as the “telephone,” sing along as Gaga says, “Sorry I cannot hear you, I’m kinda busy.” Then, “hang up” the phone and transition to your prom look. Caroline Beaudinn uses this sound perfectly, starting in her normal clothes then appearing in a full prom look after hanging up the phone.
