Thousands of homecoming and prom stories shared and questions aswered since 2005.
Hallelujah! (Heavenly music in the background) The moment that you've been waiting for has finally come. It is prom time! (Skip, skip, grin)
This is the time when brutes and bullies become dashing gentlemen, geeks and wallflowers transform into dazzling princesses. What beauty! What a fairytale-like moment!
And what could possibly turn a beautiful event into a night of magical fantasy for you? If the man of her dreams asks you to be his prom date, that's what. Oh, this could be your very night to shine - and possibly blind your guy to be yours FOREVER! (Evil laughter heard)
Anyway, so you get frantic. First thought: what to wear? Well, my dear, truth to tell. It is so much easier to get tips on what NOT to wear - so take a good look at these photos!
First off the list: Do NOT wear one with a long train. Hello? You are going to a prom, not to your wedding. How could you strut your stuff on the dance floor if you are afraid someone will step on your dress' train? Unless of course, you'd rather spend the whole night sitting down, watching your date dance with the campus queen. So there.
Next one is: Do NOT wear mismatched stockings. I mean stockings not matching with the color of your dress. You might snicker but this has actually happened. Lovely black number worn with a navy blue stockings?! What was the poor girl thinking? Maybe she thought it wouldn't matter so much. Let me tell you, it does. Big time.
Third photo to beware of: Do NOT wear your age. This might come as a shocker but it is a time-tested formula. Young girls - okay, young ladies would look more glamorous, elegant and delicately fragile in a vintage gown. Think Natalie Portman in a Chanel vintage-inspired black-laced gown. Sophisticated yet youthful.
Lastly, if you're still clueless and end up looking like the Ugly Sister, just latch on FIRMLY on your date's arm. You see, when all else fails, a gorgeous hunk will be your most wonderful accessory and weapon against nasty wagging tongues.
Does that dress even have a back?
The color is bad, and the shape of the dress is worse. Scarlett O'Hara, is that you?
If you want to inflict color blindness on your peers then go ahead and wear this dress.
