Prom is an event for high school students to not only have a fun time, but also dress more formally and fancily. For guys, a suit and tie will usually be their outfit. Girls, on the other hand, wear dresses. Buying a dress can be exciting, but stressful at the same time. There are many options to find a dress for prom. You can buy a dress from a store, borrow one, or order online.
When you are trying to find the perfect prom dress, you have to consider a few things. One thing you should think about is what style of dress you prefer. The Squire asked EHS senior and Squire staff member, Sarah West, what her favorite style of dress is. She answered, “Fitted dresses because it makes you look skinny.” Other styles of prom dresses include poufy, mermaid, and simple, among others. Another important part in finding a prom dress is the style of the back of the dress you would like. Sarah said she prefers open back because it shows off more and is more unique. There are different designs and types of material to have on prom dresses also. Sarah has already bought her dress online and shared with The Squire that, “It comes out at the bottom with a slit on the leg. It’s a sparkly gold color with sequins.”
Prom dress shopping is an exciting time of year for girls who are trying to find the perfect dress. Some girls don’t know where to start. It is a great idea to first start with a specific price range and try to look at dresses only in that range. That way, you don’t fall in love with a dress you can’t afford. You may find the dress you are looking for right away or it may take a lot of searching to find just the perfect dress. It all depends on what the dress you are imagining is like. With all of these things in mind, you will be able to choose a prom dress in no time.
