Prom Dresses For The Classy High School Students

With shows like Dancing with the Stars and outrageous red carpet gowns, it is no surprise that school administrators have been cracking down on the dress codes recently. Schools districts all over the country have gone as far as creating a guide for their students informing them what types of dresses are banned from their formal dance. The times have definitely changed since I was a high school student because this was never an issue for my peers.

However, from a young girl’s perspective – I get it. Short is sexy. Cutouts are intriguing. See-through gowns are mysterious…maybe? But there’s a difference. You can incorporate trends without being over the top and can ere on the side of classy over trashy. You may think that the only way to be fashion forward is to be sexy, but you’re going to Prom to wear a beautiful dress and to have an incredible time with your friends and your date. The sexiest thing about a someone at Prom is confidence and you don’t need a dress to do that for you. Here are some of my favorite picks for the season:

J. Crew Sinclair Dress – $250

Sean Collection Sweetheart Neck Sequin Gown – $368

Free People Satya Short Lace Dress – $515

French Connection Spring Moiree Maxi Dress – $288

BCBGeneration Pleated High-Low Dress – $138

Style Stalker Lithium Maxi Dress – $229

Lipsy Waxed Lace Prom Dress – $134.29

ASOS Peplum Dress With Cut-Out Back – $62.67

BCBG Max Azria Mara Open Back Gown – $348

Alice + Olivia Eve Strapless Draped Dress – $495

  3. I remember thinking the girls in the simple and classic (semi-short) dresses always looked the best at prom. The girls in the ruffles and cut-outs with tons of sequins always looked really insane. Even as a teen I knew that wasn’t what area woman would wear… even most prostitutes have more subtlety than that.
