Silhouette:

  • Slit Up the Leg: You’re daring – ready for all eyes to be on you as you strut across the floor. Confident enough to show a little leg, you’re happy (or wishing to become happier) in your own skin.
  • Open Back: For one, your skin is glowing, either physically or metaphorically. You’re classic but contemporary, and you probably don’t care a whole lot about what your parents think (for better or worse). Perhaps even more daring than your slit-up-the-leg counterpart, you’re ready to command attention on your prom night.
  • Two-Piece: The modern prom-goer, you mustn’t pay much attention to tradition, but rather, you want to make new ones of your own. With a sliver of your midriff on display, you’re an image of modesty yet nerve, and a leader of the new generation in the making.
  • Princess: As MKTO would say via their biggest hit song, “you’re so classic.” Soft of heart, you’d like to be seen but in a delicate way, as you step into the shoes of many young women before you, with eyes sparkling just as much as their gowns.  
  • Mermaid: Hovering amid the boundaries of classic and contemporary, you want something simplistically beautiful that manages to express your elaborate personality. You admire the vintage princess type but you yourself identify with the feminine renaissance – you see yourself as more of a hero.

Necklines:

  • Halter: You have an intimate relationship with the dress you chose. Most girls would rather feel like they’re wearing the dress than the dress is wearing them, but you’ve settled for a flattering combination between these two that’s all your own.
  • Jewel (High Neckline): You’re a modest girl, an old soul – you want to give your dress the glow instead of relying on it to make you stand out. Your mother most likely approves of your dress, but the most important part is that you do, too!
  • Keyhole: You’re a tease. You like to offer a little preview of your potential, to keep them interested, but for the most part, you don’t give your time to just anybody. This coy neckline gives you a bit of a mysterious flair on your prom night, so if you don’t have a date, you’ll definitely catch the eye of a few classmates with this look.
  • Sweetheart: You live up to the moniker given to this heart-shaped cut – you may be bubbly, or even Disney Princess material. You view the ideal vision of a bride with esteem, and though this is only prom, you want to show your classmates how classy but fun-loving you are.
  • Tube/Bateau: You’re a lot like your sweetheart sister, but in a simpler way. You’d like to leave a bit more to the imagination, but still bring in an interest among your classmates that makes them notice the clean-cut, sophisticated young woman you’ve always been.
  • Scoop: A classy young woman, you embody a sense of style and maturity beyond your years. You’re not necessarily trying to hide everything, but you’d like to show just enough to be seen – a concoction of daring and bashful.

Colors:

  • Bright Colors: You’re excited to make a statement with your bright and unique dress and your meaningful efforts to stand out in a crowd of neutral-toned classmates will not go unnoticed.
  • Neutral Color: A simple, yet stunning, neutral-colored dress will definitely help you make the bold statement that you’re hoping for. Your vibrant personality will not be overshadowed by your simple, yet stunning dress.
  • Pastel: You’re probably a big fan of spring and summer, reflected in the prom dress of your choice. You want to embody your soft, delicate personality on the most important social event of the year.
  • Sequin/Bedazzled: You want all eyes to be on you all night long, as your date takes the back seat to this fashion duo. You’re looking forward to shining bright at Promenade and sparkling under the disco ball at the dance.
