NAM's Top 5 Fashion Tips for NAM Nationals 2015!
1.) Start Practicing in Your Shoes Now! You want to command the stage when you step into the NAM National Spotlight, so make sure you are comfortable in the shoes that you are wearing. Practice walking and modeling in your actual stage shoes, so you have one less thing to think about during NAM Nationals.
2.) Go All Out for Themed Rehearsals! This is a super fun part of NAM Nationals that sets up the perfect photo ops! You can post the cutest Instagram pics of you with girls from all over the nation as you are dressed in over the top outfits! Don’t wait till the last minute to put your perfect outfit together. While the host hotel is super helpful they are not equipped with the perfect hat for your State Pride Rehearsal!
3.) Pack the appropriate undergarments for all your outfits. You don’t want extra straps or unwanted lines to show while you are on stage. Have a dress rehearsal and make sure everything looks exactly the way you want it to.
4.) While Spray Tans are not against our rules, we do not encourage, promote or even recommend that you get one. If you choose to get a spray tan make sure it looks very natural. Make sure you are representing the BEST YOU! NAM's goal is to help you feel comfortable in your own skin. There is absolutely no reason to get a spray tan.
5.) No Bare-Midriffs in the Formal Wear Modeling Competition! It is clearly stated in the rules that bare-midriffs are not allowed. While you may think that 2-piece dress with just a little skin showing is adorable for formal wear, it’s best just to lean on the conservative side! Formalwear should be regal and elegant so stay away from dresses that show your tummy.
